It's Mah POOCH!

There's mah boy! And his.. uhhmmm, errrr Tree? Gregg got so tired of Matani chewing on our bushes and trees that he just lopped a limb off and gave it to him! It's his new favorite toy!
Oh yeah.. notice that pink blob in his right eye? Yeah, I rushed him to the vet Monday morning (Thanks Stacey!) because I thought he had poked his eye with a stick (I don't know WHAT would make me think that...) Turns out his third eyelid (yes.. dogs have 3 eyelids. How alienish eh?) prolapsed. He has a "cherry eye" Purely cosmetic, won't cause him any harm and will cost about $600.00 to tuck back in with no guarantee that it won't prolapse again.

I have finally accepted the fact that my dog has a lazy eye. I was in doubt (denial) until this photo series. Now I'm convinced.. poor thing. I can't tell if he's looking at me or the kids!

*stop laughing, it's not funny* Do you think he likes his tree? Good grief, I couldn't get him to let it go!

Here he is "hovering" over it. Like I'm going to take it from him and start chewing on it!

Finally! A photo with no stick in his mouth! It is however, right beside him....

Eh, at least he likes it!

LMAO!!!!!!! Yep, it must be a Mosbarger thing!!!!!! I am loving the first picture- just gorgeous!!!! I didn't even notice the prolapsed eyelid until I read your entry and remembered. It really doesn't look all!!! I say save the money, and leave him be. I LOVE his lazy eye- it's soooo adorable!!!!!! Man, is he getting HUGE!!!!!!! I'll bet he's got Diesel beat in size now!!!!
