What in the World Wednesday!!!

What in the world Momma! What in the world!!!

Droopy here! Momma bought me a product called Doggles (doggie goggles!) to help with my eyes when we're out and about! My eyes tend to get very red and irritated because all the pollen and yucky stuff gets trapped in my droopy eyes. I'll let you know how it goes! Crazy momma!

You might notice there's an extra basset, who isn't Smiley, in the above picture. Well that is Corey and he's our new foster basset. Well he's been here a few weeks and we just haven't had time to post about him!!! Oopsie! He's a super sweet and ridiculously funny boy!!! We're enjoying his stay here. Best part is he loves clothes!!! Momma is having a good time playing dress up with him.

Corey, the goofiest basset ever

Eye doctor time!

Hey everybody!! Droopy here!

Well Tuesday was my 6 month check up at the doggie eye doctor.

Align Center
Mom can we go home now?

Mom I really think it's time to go home!

I was very good while we waited and only barked at everybody!!! I even tried to make friends with another dog in the lobby but Mommma said he was too nervous and I needed to leave him alone.

Checking the pressure in my eye

I let the doc poke and prod me and even shine bright lights in my eye!!! Momma said I behaved super well!

The doctor said that my eyes look ok but the tear product (which keeps your eye moist) in my right eye is almost zero! He told Momma I have to have more eye drops everyday!!! I am now up to EIGHT DROPS EVERYDAY!!!!!

Momma is slightly overwhelmed with the amount of drops per day but I am very good when she does my drops. When I see the eye dropper I sit, let Momma do my drops, and then I get a tasty treat!!!!

I have to go back to the eye doctor in two months for a recheck. UGH!

Momma bribed me with lots of cheesy treats and then we went home and took a nice nap.

Well that's all for now!

A Note from Momma

So eight drops a day is a bit overwhelming but left alone the lack of tear production can lead to Droopy's eye getting so scratched that she is blind or the eye needing to be removed. I made a checklist that makes life a little easier and we'll just have to get into the routine of it!!!

Luckily the assortment of drops are easy to get filled at the pharmacy and Droopy is so good about having them done. Plus bribing her with a treat does wonders!!! She's had drops done most of her life and she is so easy to medicate!

Neopolydex on the left, cyclosporin in the middle and genteal on the right

The neopolydex is before and after breakfast, the cyclosporin is before and after dinner and then once more in the right eye. and the genteal is at bedtime and then once more in the right eye. It's all about routine!!!

Sorry we've been so absent lately but Momma got sick and her work stuff has been super busy so there's been no time for blogging!!!!!

On to our YAY!

As of Monday, Kayah is an official CheeseHound!!!

Momma and Dad decided to adopt Kayah. It was all Dad's idea... so Momma says. Kayah is super special and is a good fit here in the CheeseHound household. Plus Kayah has been with the rescue group for TWO YEARS and no one has been interested in her. Also Kayah LOVES our Dad. She is always so excited when he comes home!

Well we need to catch up all the bloggie posts we've missed

Sniff ya later

A new face

Wondering why this face is so unfamiliar????

Well that's cause the CheeseHound household has a new foster hound!

His name is Duke. He's fairly young, about 2. Duke loves to play tug of war with Kayah, which drives Kayah crazy! Droopy ignores him and Smiley shoots him dirty looks. Duke is in good shape and Momma figures he won't stay terribly long.

The CheeseHounds

P.S. He loves cheese! BOL!

More park time plus famous Droopy

Smiley and I got to go to the dog park!!! We love the park but we don't get to go everyday cause it's a bit of a ride to get there. Sad thing is it's the only dog park we have in New Orleans!!! We love the name of the park: Nola City Bark! It's so funny cause it's in New Orleans City Park.

Hi Mom!

One neat thing that happens at the park, they have a big party every year to helps raise money to improve the park! So when momma and I went to the park, on Tuesday, the TV people were there filming the pups!

Mom I'm tired from the park! Can we go again next week?

Here's the video that the news people made! Let us know if you see anybody you recognize!

Serious Power of the Paw needed!

We are asking all of our bloggie friends to head over to the HoundDogMom blog and give our buddy Miss Cleo some serious Power of the Paw. She's been having back issues and now she's been diagnosed with some bad bad blood sickies, called AIHA. She needs all the Power of the Paw that we can give her!

Kayah and the Vet plus POTP

Hey everybody!

Kayah had to go to the Vet but nothing scary, just normal shots. Well first off Kayah HATES car rides. We think it's cause she doesn't see so well and the car rides make her super nervous.

Momma subjected Kayah to the ThunderShirt hoping it would help with Kayah's car anxiety. Well it didn't help but it was the first time she wearing it... Oh well!

Get me outta here!!!!

Kayah was very well behaved during her exam! The vet was very excited to meet Kayah and, of course, thought Kayah was a cutie!!!!

Kayah bootie

Kayah is now up to date on all her shots, has no worms in her poop, and is heartworm negative!!! Plus Kayah weighed in at 37lbs! She is down 3 lbs!

How funny is this?? Momma and Kayah wound up in a room with a Basset Hound picture!

Well Kayah has since been moping. We think she's just playing it up so Momma feels bad for her. Although she cries when Momma touches one of her injection spots so maybe she really doesn't feel good.

And just for HoundDogMom, Miss Smiley's cute face!!!

And now if you haven't heard our dear friend Cleo of The HoundDogMom Blog is in some serious need of the Power Of The Paw!! She is starting her actupuncture today and needs all the good basset-y (or whatever breed you happen to be) vibes sent her way!!!!!

Well that's it for now!

Excuse our absence

Sorry about our absence! Momma had a birthday and she was so busy celebrating that she wouldn't help us with the blog!!!! This is what we've been up to:

Kayah got a new toy. It's really a cat toy but shhh... don't tell her!
It rattles and keeps her amused!

We've had lots of rain so Droopy has taken the chance to catch up of her napping.

Smiley is working on her three-legged dog impression!

Well we're gonna work on catching up on everybody's blogs!

The CheeseHounds

P.S. Momma got a new laptop so the blogging is going so much easier!
