Squinty McSquintytins

Now I know these aren't the most flattering images of my precious pup - but my Lola has an eye problem! :(

I am crossing my fingers that is just allergies or a minor irritation. She's been squinting and pawing at her eye and it has just developed in the last 24 hours. And it's watering a lot.

We did go for two long walks in the last couple of warm weather days - so hopefully I can chaulk it up to something like allergies. I don't think there is anything in it because she lets me poke around at it and she never uttered a peep - and she is my baby-dog so if it did hurt she would let me know - believe me. I can hardly pull burrs out of her fur without her yelping like I am poking her with a red hot iron or something. Silly dog.

When she woke up this morning it seemed to be a lot better - no more pawing and just the hint of a squint and a lot less watering.

But if it isn't better by tonight - she's going in for a looksy at the vet.

My poor squinty pup!

Poor Lola! She looks so sad with that squinty eye. I hope she gets better.

P.S. Check out my blog for a really fun Springtime give-away!

Awww! Poor thing. If it's any consolation our dog has an infection around his mouth. The vet said it's because the way he slobbers and his lips are shaped. I don't buy it though because he hasn't had it until the last year and he's almost 6 years old. We take him to the groomer and I think they can catch stuff there from the other dogs and grooming equipment. Hope your little Lola feels better soon! That picture of Sarah Pead looks a bit like Jenny McCarthy, don't ya think?

Awww, poor doggie. One of my dogs gets bad allergies every spring and fall, and scratches a lot at her face and gets watery eyes but they don't close up like that ...

You puppy is still cute- even squinting. I hope it is something minor- I know how it is when the furry little ones don't feel good. Our Pomeranian is like a daughter to us and when she doesn't feel good- nobody feels good.

Sarah - Yes, she definitely hammed it up for the picture! Thank goodness she was better when I got home from work today! I was really worried for a second.

Your giveaway is awesome - I will post something about it soon!

Momma Val - Yeah, I kinda hesitate about going to vet because it always ends up costing so much. $45 for the visit, plus whatever medications, etc, etc. I have a two day rule - if it doesn't get better in two days - they gotta go in.

Electronic Goose - It was allergies I think because it cleared up after a good 24/72 hours and she didn't seem to be in pain - just irritated - like it was itchy.

WYA- Poms are cute!! And yes it is very stressful - they can't tell you what they are feeling so it doubles the worry.
