Thankful for After Doctor Snax!

But Mama...I NEED a Puppachino!
 I have to say one of the perks of being a bit under the weather is being able to talk Mama into stopping for a Puppachino on the way home from my Eye Doctor's appointment! Mama usually reserves Puppachino stops for road trips and special occasion. But I learned quickly that, by giving her my "poor Arty puppy dog eyes",  I have no problem getting a little puppachino love!  Thanks Mama!




.....noommmmmmmm



ssssllllluuuuuuurrrrrrpppppp



Best thing EVER!!!




Of course, I had to give Mama permission to film the puppachino madness in this short video



You can also watch it HERE on YouTube






Thanks Mama for always making sure I get a nice Puppachino snack after my eye doctor appointment!

Little birdy that we see,
Out the Window on Bird TV
You sit so comfy on your perch
While at the window, we do lurch

You sing your pretty song, tweet tweet
While at the window we three leap.
Mama wishes you would fly away
So she can let us out and you could live another day!


TeeHeeHee!

Thankful for Heroes!

 
Arty here today to give a big thank you to the hero dogturs who have been taking care of me! As most of you know, I have had eye issues for awhile now. After my trip to the eye dogtur in February, Mama thought we had everything under control. Then, 2 weeks ago, my eyes started getting watery, and I started squinting more than usual. My allergies have been pretty bad this season, so Mama kept an "eye on my eyes" so to speak, to make sure they didn't get any worse. Then, last week, when Mama was giving me a bath, she noticed a discoloration and a small, inflamed red spot on my eye.


Mama called my regular dogtur immediately and told her about my eye. They scheduled an appointment for me the next day***. When we got to the Dogtur's Office, Mama checked in by calling the office. A few minutes later, the Vet Tech came out to take me to see the dogtur while Mama waited in the car. Mama didn't like waiting in the car, but understood she had to do her part to make sure all humans stay healthy. After taking a look at my eyes, my dogtur took lots of pictures and texted them to my eye dogtur. Then she called Mama, and told her I had ulcers in my eyes.  We went home with some eye drops and directions for Mama to call and make and appointment fr me to see my eye dogtur. 

The next morning, before Mama had even finished her morning coffee, the eye dogtor called to schedule an appointment for the very next day! It seems, the previous evening, my eye dogtur and local dogtur had been talking about how bad my eyes were . They decided the sooner I got to the eye dogtur's office the better!




Very early the next morning,  Mama and I went to Medford to see my eye dogtur. It was a beautimous day, so we enjoyed the relaxing three and a half hour drive through the mountains. When we got to the eye dogtur's office, we repeated the same process as we did at my local dogturs office.  

The eye dogtur determined I had multiple Stromal Corneal Ulcers.  I had two choices, eye surgery where I would have to be sleeping while they fixed my ulcer, or a more non-evasive procedure where the dogtur used tissue glue and contact lenses to fix my ulcers. Mama and I decided to go with the non-evasive procedure. It was quick, and pretty painless and we were on our way back home in an hour or so. She scheduled another appointment in a week.



That was last Thursday. So today, Mama and I are on our way back to Oregon. When we get there, the eye dogtur will look and make sure my eyes are healing up.  If they aren't healing as well as she likes, I may need to have the big surgery. We think I am doing much better, but I'll make sure to keep you updated!



Mama and I want to thank my local dogtur(and their office) and my eye dogtur(and her office) for going above and beyond duty and helping to get my eyes fixed so quickly amid all the CDC/COVID-19 restrictions! 

Vets and their staff are heroes too!!




From Mama:
***During this time of COVID-19, our Vets are only seeing urgent care and emergency patients along with giving rabies shots. Every Vet's office is different. It's always a good idea to check with your Vet's office to see what their policy is during the crisis to be prepared, in case you have an emergency.

Nature Walk Friday!




Happy Nature Friday!
Arty here to tell you about a walk Mama and I took through the wilderness right before the "Shelter in Place" happened!




 It was a beautiful day, perfect for a Nature walk! We found a nice trail, and headed out!




Pictures didn't do it justice, so Mama put together a movie. 
Make sure to turn the sound up to get the full nature effect!


You can also watch it HERE on YouTube!






Thanks for tagging along on my Nature Walk today!



We hope you find some sunshine and fresh air today!


I want to thank everybody for all the POTP, we'll fill you in on everything next week...but the eye doctor took good care of me yesterday and I should be feeling better in the next week or so!

ISO-Lympic Snoring

Hello, and welcome to our section of the ISO-Lympics!!!
We have been hard at work training for our events almost nonstop so lets get to them!!



First up, we have Rosy showing off her difficult 
"Lay on my back in the bed"
ISO-lympic Unique Sleeping Positions event.
Let me tell you, it took her weeks to get this position just right!




 
Jakey has been trying out many different places to sleep in his 
"How close can I get to hurting myself and Mama" 
ISO-lympic Category, but this one which he calls Close Call takes the Gold!  Laying here he can almost get run over by the chair wheels while causng Mama to fall out of her office chair all at the same time!!
Good Job Jakey, what a definite high degree of difficulty!


We have to say, out of all the LLB Gang, Arty has been working the hardest, hours of practice along with keeping Mama and Daddy up at all hours of the night has him winning the LLB Gold Medal in
ISO-Snoring!!

Turn up the Volume(but not too loud) and give this video a listen!

You can also view it HERE on YouTube 

What do you think, worthy of a Gold Medal??

Speaking of Arty, he needs a bit of POTP.  He has been having some "really concerning" eye issues and, despite the whole "Shelter in Place" ordinance, he and Mama are on the way to his Eye Doctor in Oregon today. We'll keep you up to date.


Hop aboard the Blogville ISO-lympic Blog Hop and hop around to see what other fun events are happening around the neighborhood!

We want to thank Bella, Dui and Roxy for Hosting this most Pawsome Blogville Event and kudos to HER for coming up with the idea!! 

We also want to thank Sweet William the beautimous event badge!!

Jakey Aaaaawwwws

 I sure am enjoying Mama staying at home! This week I am helping her clean out our "photo prop" room.



Hmmmmmm...
Maybe she should clean more and dress me up less



Hey Arty...can you come over here and "help" Mama for awhile??



Maybe having this whole physical distancing thing over with will be a good thing after all!

April Flowers on Nature Friday

 Rosy here today on Nature Friday with my new friend Trixie the Chicky! This week I thought it would be nice to show you and Trixie  some of the flowers blooming near us!



These flowers look like a cross between crocuses and snappy dragons.....



 Here is the same kind of flower...except in pink!!



 Speaking of different colors....why do you have a brown fluffy tail, Trixie?? Chickies are suppose to have feathers!



Mama saw some day lilies blooming...check out their sparkly leaves!!



There were grape hyacinths too, I really like their purple-y color, don't you Trixie??



 No Trixie, I don't think Mama saw any nut trees....
Since when do chickies like nuts??




She did see some yellow and white irises though... 



along with some purple irises!



 and Spring wouldn't be complete without tulips!!



 Wait a minute!!!
Trixie, are you a squirrel in a chicky outfit????
Yeah...Ok, I guess you're right, that's fair,
since I am a dog in a bunny outfit!
BOL!!



During these trying times, remember to remind your humans to always have hope....
We hope the Flowers are blooming in your corner of Blogville.
