    Awww Thanks so much for asking! Buster developed Cherry Eye last Friday. It developed literally overnight and I took him to the vet. . The vet tried to pop it back which works sometimes. I got some antibiotics and anti bacterial medicines to prevent any infection from developing and hoped it might go back on it own ( but it rarely does) - by Sunday it was even worse. ( lucky my vet clinic is open 7 days a week until midnight- so no extra fee for off hours) It looked so awful.

    Monday morning 7:30 am he went in for emergency surgery. They stitched his 3rd membrane to the ligament on the orbital bone. It is the most conservative treatment. If it works we won't have to remove the membrane which I hope is the case. The poor little mutt looks so sorrowful with his swollen eye and his "cone of shame". He is so little he scoops up the snow when he tries to walk and crashes into the steps with the tip of his cone as he tries to get up the deck stairs. Oh and did I mention that I had to drive through a blizzard Monday morning to get him to surgery? We just got another 10-15 cm of snow Monday. Apparently the coldest March and now April in the last 100 years or so since they started keeping records. I think the universe is conspiring to get Kim and I out of Winnipeg. I was so stressed my back was aching. Never felt that before and I don't much like feeling this way. I think I was so worried about Buster that I forgot to breathe The vet said the surgery went well and it looks like it might be OK. Of course when it happens in one eye it usually also happens in the other eye a. Hoping for the best.

    He looks good except for swelling. Peeing and pooping and eating up a storm. Hardest part is trying to keep him from torturing Miss Tallulah and playing tug with her. Doing a lot of quiet crate time with a banana stuffed kong.

    Wow, you've certainly been through the ringer, huh? His eye looks great! We got Mona at 1 1/2 years old and she'd already had her cherry eye fixed before we got her. I hope your back is feeling better. I guess instead of saying "when it rains it pours" for your situation it should be "when it snows it pours" - good vibes and prayers being sent your way! Buster has stolen our hearts!

    You should definitely leave Winnipeg sun is shining and its 16 in Toronto

    I wish Buster a speedy recovery and same to you @Tooleysmom I think the surgeries take more out of us then the dogs

    Poor little guy! I wish I had a vet like yours that was open so much. I'm so glad he's doing better. I love your description of the cone of shame plowing the snow. It's got to be frustrating for him!

    Thank you all so much or your kind words. I am going to try and see how Buster does tonight without the cone. If he doesn't start pawing at his eye then he will be cone free. And my teeny weenie baby bully snowplow can go back to sniffing everything. The most important thing right now is to avoid infection.

    Buster we did not even know that you were sick. Glad to hear that surgery went well and that you are back at home. Feel better soon and bury that cone deep in the back yard.

    Sharon, so sorry for such a stressful 2 weeks for all of you and praying the
    surgery takes and the other eye doesn't pop out.


    Cami went to the Vet, Weds and got a CBS & Thyroid, etc ran, we get results
    tomorrow AM. She just stopped eating, got very lethargic & seemed depressed
    after 2 weeks of normal & eating well. I got all paranoid that silent Pyrometra
    was starting up, she came here finishing a heat at 5 y/o (she'll be spayed in 2
    months).

    Oh, when we got home...there was the cooleroo you bid on, won the action and
    told EBN to ship to me. Really Sharon...I bawled, you truly touched me with such
    love, kindness & generousity...Cami got right on it as my son finished assembling
    it...she LOVES it!

    And, I love you, Sherry, EBN and everyone here, my slice of Heaven!

    Thank you and may GOD shower you & yours with blessings of His own!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Alright now, I'm already teary eyed from the news in Texas, but now I've got happy tears over such a wonderful gift. That is AMAZING! What a beautiful, heartfelt thing to do for someone else. Wow. I'm just amazed at the love this board has for each other.

    I hope Cami will be better, real soon.

    Sharon, you are an angel among us. God bless you!
