Back to the eye doctor!

We have been horrible bloggie friends and haven't been reading blogs! We hope you'll forgive us and we will be catching up with our bloggie friends, post haste!

Well it's been 6 months and it was time to go back to the eye doctor.

Mom, can we go home now???

I don't really like going to the eye doctor, there's way too many funny drops and weird shiny lights in my eyes. Like this:

This is the eye doctor checking the pressure in my eyes. Basset Hounds are prone to growl-cloma, which is where the fluid in your eye creates pressure and can hurts lots! It can also lead to blindness!

Then the stupid eye doctor turned out the lights and shined this really bright light in my eyes!!! He was checking the lenses in my eyes. Apparently the tiny blood vessels over my corneas are very inflamed. Whatever that means! Because of all the nice weather we're having down here, the pollen from the plants is everywhere and is making my eyes all red and ouchie!

So the eye doctor said More Eye Drops!!!! I now get 5 eye drops everyday, instead of 3! Momma says I'm super good about my eye drops.

Now some happy news!

Mickey started going to work with Momma. He loves it!!!!!

Sniff ya later,
Droopy, Smiley, Kayah and Mickey
