YUM YUM HAS A BIRTHDAY--2
He loved it!! For his birthday, though, he also had to see the eye doctor and he had Medial Canthoplasty surgery. https://www.rvc.ac.uk/small-animal-vet/teaching-and-research/fact-files/medial-canthoplasty This is where they close in the end/ends of the eye lid so that a smaller area of eye ball is exposed. It's a common surgery for dogs with bulgy eyes. It helps protect the eyes and means they can blink better. This surgery also helped to fix some of the eye lashes that were growing down toward Yum Yum's eye, causing irritation. It wasn't much of a birthday present, but he will feel so much better!
Yum Yum is the first dog his mom has had who loves toys and Wild Hog is number one in his toy box.
Winter is coming to Australia now, so Yum Yum has a nice coat to keep him warm. It's hard to think of it getting cold there as it warms up here. (Of course, it's now May and we really aren't seeing a lot of warm up-- the cold weather has been lingering!)
