I've got a gooky eye.

We came back from our walk this morning and Mommy noticed my left eye was all gooey and gooky. So when she got back from physical therapy (with Scout and Harlan's Mommy - who had knee surgery two weeks ago. Do you think she and Harlan got a group discount?) she took me to see Dr. D. (I love Dr. D...she gives me lots of cookies and tells me I'm the best boy ever. I believe her.) 

I got on the scales and wagged my tail so much they couldn't tell how much I weighed! Finally I just sat down. 23.2 lbs. That's down 3 pounds since May!  Dr. D was VERY happy at my svelte physique. A beautiful big black cat named Nero lives at the vets office and I was very anxious to say hello and I guess I made a lot of noise. A little MinPin named Jackson (!!!) came out to see what I was yapping about and the two of us joined in for a duet. 

Anyhow, I've got conjunctivitis and Dr. D put some goop in it. Mommy's got to put it in twice a day for the next 4 to 5 days. I was hoping I'd get a black eye patch to wear with my skull and crossbones sweater. 

Hope everyone else is feeling great!

Congrats on your new svelte physique - you are going to look just pawsome in your costume (with or without an eyepatch).

have a fab weekend!

Eric said...

Eeewww. Poor Petey. Hope its better soon, though I think an eyepatch would look great but could be a problem when you try to wink at the ladies!!

Um..are you on diet Petey? The Atkins one will loads of lovely meat??

Hi Petey,
My Vet has two big cats living in the clinic, why they love to keep cats in there?
I imagine you wear an eyepatch with your skull and crossbones sweater strolling to your ship followed by beautiful young girls, that's I call a wonderful Halloween.
Please come to my blog to pick up your award, choose your favorite one, it's my pleasure to pass it onto you.
Cheers!

hey Petey, we're sorry about your eye. that's a bummer. we used to get those eye goobers too and then mom would put the gooey stuff in our eyes. it's just one of those dog things, we think. you'll get better with some nursing care from Asta.

woofs.
