That dog's got Woe :(

So yesterday Mom and Dad went to the airport to pick up my Aunt and when they got home I looked weird and was acting weird. My eye was all pink and strange looking and I was shaking and spacing out and just not being the usual Mr. Stains. Mom and Dad had no idea what was happening so they made an appointment at the emergency vet! Well, everything at the Vet was normal, temperature, vitals, even the INSIDE of my pink swelling eye looked ok. So what Mr Emergency Vet said was that I probably got stung/bitten by a bug OR I smashed into something and had 'trauma' to my face. I was eating a little slower but still eating and drinking and going to the bathroom ok, so I got to go home and Mom and Dad and the Aunt gave me lots of love and pets and snuggles.

SO you might ask maybe I just smashed into a wall on purpose because I was upset about this intrusion into my daily life? Well, the parents will never know for sure, but I am feeling a LOT better today and my eye is not so swollen anymore and I am not acting funny.

I am still a little sleepy but other than that I am just fine. Mom and Dad were real scared though, so I am milking that for all it is worth.

Also, my Aunt got a brand new suitcase to fill with stuff to take back to PA, hmm that kind of gives me an idea...

And something tells me that your parents won't be happy if you send Tanner back to PA...but its worth a shot!

Yikes! Well at least you are getting pampered out of what happened to your eye! I once got bit by a fire ant on my paw and it made my leg spaz was freaky weird and Mom and Papa were worried at first but then they called the vet. The vet said to give me some Benadryl and once they knew I would be okay they laughed when my leg would spaz out! How rude huh!?!

Jeez Joe - what's with the eye BS and the best breed of dog in the world lately. I'm glad you're doing better and hope you will continue to improve. A word of advice - don't send the Doofus away - he's great for taking out your angst, isn't he?

Hi Joey,
Glad to hear that it's nothing serious.. Ummm... Tanner's quite big, so I doubt you'll get away with whatever that you are thinking.. (although there's no harm in trying).

Aw Joe, I bet mum and dad were scared. Glad it's looking better today. I definitely think you should milk that sympathy for a while longer though.

Good job Joe! Keep the focus on you! (But I'm glad you didn't do anything serious).

Looks like there is just enough space in that suitcase for a Doofus. You could probably smoosh his head down since there's nothin' in there.


ps. I am NOT mean to my sissy!

You were probably guarding the house & then there was a big bug invasion & you killed them all, getting stung in the process.

We're glad you're OK!

You are such a POSER! (If there was really something wrong with you, then I'm glad it's nothing serious).

Don't be so sure you're going to get the Doofus in that suitcase. Did you ever think that he may be planning to do the same to you?

Goober love,
