COLBY AND HIS EYE
It seems in rescue, we are dealing with a lot of eye issues. Coco Puff, above, had her second eye surgery last week. She is the sweetest thing and so affectionate. She is doing so well with her eyes and she doesn't mind me putting her eye drops in.
Wicket, who had his eye removed, due to a tumor, glaucoma and retinal atropy, is doing great, too. He had his stitches removed today!! YEA!
Colby, our four month old puppy foster, had his eye surgery last week. He had to have a second "minor" surgery since he popped one of his stitches, but he is doing well and playing with his toys.
I know it looks bad, but these Pekingese have a resilience I don't see in most people. They don't think, "oh, my life was so good, I used to see so well." They just take each day as it comes, see what they can do, and go from there. He is trying to play and not "fretting" about his eye surgery.
And pretty soon, he will have his stitches out and be free of the e-collar (I would hate having one of those around my neck!) and be free to play and not be in the playpen! And Colby has a home waiting for him for Christmas!! I'm so excited for him!!
