Dog Drama

I had this fear that I wouldn’t have enough material to sustain a blog. 

And then this happened to my dog.

Apparently Turtle got scratched in the eye.  Isn’t that the most pathetic thing you have ever seen?  And yes, that is a real button on her eye.  It’s supposed to keep the stitches in.

I don’t want to be the crazy dog lady that shares all the gross details about the medical procedures that her dogs undergo.  Suffice it to say that Turtle should be fine (except for maybe a bruised ego for having to wear the cone of shame for a week). 

I can’t quite get used to seeing a button sewn onto her eye or feeling the constant scraping of the cone on my legs. I am pretty sure that I am not looking forward to her full recovery as much as she is though.  The cone is a great impediment to life as she knew it.  She keeps getting it snagged on walls as she tries to turn sharp corners and it also gets caught underneath her food bowl and sends food everywhere except where she wants it (in her mouth).  It's really pitiful.  However, she is getting the royal treatment while she is recuperating: pain meds, treats, and  even sleeping in our bed (you would know this is a big deal if you've ever heard her snore).

I needn’t have worried about enough material.
