I  says have beautiful Hershey drop eyes, the FRANKENVET says I do not.  (this is a picture of me and my brudder Sammy J. Simpson from when we were little)  Notice the chocolate film over my eyes.

Well as I have gotten older no matter what mom and the FRANKENVET has tried, or cooked up in the caldron they have continued to get worse.

I am getting so use to her poking around with paper strips in my eyes when I go to the FRANKENVET that it does not even make me cry anymore.  Good news though my left eye has the #14 for tear production which is pretty good, Bad news is it now has a ulcer.   Bad news my right eye that looks more bloodshot has the #4 for tear production.  Apparently the FRANKENVET says that is NOT good news at all.

I have been on my eye medicine and drops for a long LONG time now, and so for 10 days we are trying two different types of medicine.  A ointment and a teeny tiny bottle of drops.

Me at the pugfest with Ms. Ellen when I was little.  See my pretty eyes.  They make my Daddy do everything I ask him too.

Me and my love Stan.   So after the ten days are up the FRANKENVET is ordering me some new medicine to try in my eyes and she and mom are hoping it will help.  Neither of them are ready to give up on ME ever.

BUTT if all else fails the FRANKENVET will send me to a special VET that just takes care of eyes.....we are not even sure there is such a person in IOWA. 

Mom thinks I am beautiful and so does Ms. Macey who is still waiting on her appt.  Her foot has went down some though so that is good news.

Gussie is also feeling much better, he has a new wrinkle from his surgery around his mouth but it just fits in with the rest. 

And Grandma has started her first week of hormone therapy.  We are praying for great results.

Maggie said last night she is glad she wrote her whiney "marsha marsha marsha" post (thank you Casey's mom) cos from writing the post she now has a new secret sister who wants to be her one and only bestest friend.  You will never guess who it is.

Our little village gots 6 inches of snow and we are in for more on Saturday-Sunday and Monday says she is just staying home and sewing and playing wif us!!  Yay.....

I cross my paws for your granny and I send healing kisses that the hormone therapy will help her.

  7. Hi Stella Rose, I want to tell you that our last dog Reggie had some eye issues and finally we took him to an eye specialist and it was so much easier & better than his regular vet(though we loved his regular vet)-the doctor was able to take care of the issue quicker and if we had gone there initially, we would have saved some $$$$. I'm hoping the specialist can help you too. I loved the photos. Have a fantastic weekend.

  11. Good news bad news it's better than no news. It started snowing here today about 9am and it's still coming down. Mom hates it when it snows because Texans don't know how to drive in it. They drive way too fast and cause all kinds of needless wrecks. Glad your mom is staying home with y'all.....stay warm.

  20. Crikey Stella Rose ...... I think your eyes are BEAUTIFUL. What would that Vet bloke know anyway??? I sure hope the new meds help to make them not so sore for you. AND I hope Grandma's meds help her a lot too. It was REAL good to see that picture of you with Miss Macey. How beautiful is she and her legs gone down a bit ....... that's real good news, aye, but we still need to know why it is up. What a happy smile she has.
    You got more snow??? Never mind .... it won't be long and spring will sprung, aye???

  28. Your eyes are gorgeous Stella! I'm so sorry that you're having trouble with them. I had a Lab named Acadia who lost ALL tear production (those little papers in her eyes gave big ZEROs). No medicine helped but we put artificial tears into her eyes every 30 min (when she was awake with her eyes open) for the rest of her life. I sure hope that the medicine helps you, sweet Stella!

  29. We're sending lots of good vibes for those beautiful eyes and for your Grandma too!!

  30. Healing wishes all around, for your eyes and for Macey!

  31. Stella you are so beautiful!
    Hope the new meds help your eyes!

  32. Hi Stella Rose! You sure do have beautiful orbs! I hope the new drops work better for you. I had to go to an eye specialist in January and they are very nice so don't worry if you have to go. I'll send some good pug juju your way for you and your family!
