Luck be a lady tonight, please

The black, hairy, dearly-loved, canine that lives in our home has been having some eye trouble.  Typically for this one, it’s always been the ears.  That poor dog has had more ear infections than the rest of us combined.  So, when her eye started looking red, I was a bit worried.  I’m sparing you the grossness that is her left eye by showing a pic that Cameron took of her with both eyes closed.  Cam has a knack for taking pictures of the dog blinking.  it’s weird.

Apparently she has cataracts and a pigment-free third eyelid, both of which are not the problem.  We’ve been referred to a animal opthalmologist.  Oh, joy. That’ll have to wait till after the new year, precious, black, hairy, child-o-mine.   Her smeller works just fine, btw, and, boy, did she ever want what was in the trash this day.  If you look really close to the right side of the door…see the scratch marks??   She got the door open.  Lucky for us the trash wasn’t very full, but we’re gonna have to be smarter next time.

Sweet, rotten dog. 🙂
