After I actually made the real fleece coat do you wonder if I could get the thing on him without getting bit? Do you wonder WHY I am even doing this?! I WONDER WHY I AM EVEN DOING THIS?! I did it because Murphy was groomed on Tuesday and he shakes and shivers in the cold. We do live in Wisconsin!! I DO love grumpy, 'ol Murph.
Treats it is. Home Murphy and I went. Brian went off to get the drops and treats. He came home with the drops and Pupperoni. Now we have only ever given rice cakes as treats in this house. That started because of our dear Mabel. She tended to gain weight and rice cakes won't let you gain weight.Henry and Murphy go wild for these Pupperoni treats! I do NOT think they are very good for them though. So after this bag is gone we are switching to freeze dried beef liver. I know Murphy gobbles that up too because the vet offers that as a treat after the appointment is over.
I am getting the eye drops into Murph's eyes. I have to sneak up on him. (Not always easy to do!) Then I quickly pin his neck between my shins, just above my ankles.See what I mean about wrangling poodles?! He actually just stays there and waits now. I just say treat once or twice and he stays still while I place the drop in each eye.Then I immediately give him his Pupperoni. Henry gets a very small piece too. This happens twice a day. Such fun! NOT! And I am actually Murphy's favorite person still!!
So our Murphy will go blind.He can barely see out of his left eye right now the vet says. The eye drops will make him comfortable and slow down the progression a bit in the right eye. Murphy is 14 years old. The bloodwork we just had done shows he is otherwise healthy. So we will just take this as it comes.
I will share a bit of stitching with you next time my friends. My order came in from ABC Stitch on Friday finally! I began stitching the ornaments for Madeleine on Saturday. Yes, there are two poodles. I have to stitch them when she is not around.
Thank you for stopping by. Have a super week!
