The Eyes Have it

Or maybe not:( Mom thinks there is something wrong with my left eye (that would be the one on your right).

She says I have been on the quiet side and that is not like me.

Here's a close-up of the good one.

And here they are side by side.
Yep, me thinks she may be on to something.

A little irritation, a little weepy, not wide open.
WHAT??? A trip to the V-E-T???
I will let you all know how things go tomorrow.

Have no fear, I expect to be looking like this again very soon.

Meanwhile, I am just going to relax here on Mom's lap and read all your blogs.

Woos, Thunder Dunder

Note from the Momster: Thunder has had seasonal allergies in the past, so I am hoping it is simply that.

Okays, now I knows what you talkin bouts. It looks like some sort of irritation, wouldn't allergies cause both eyes to be red? I dunno, I'm not a vet...I's a doggie. Hmmmmm...dis is very interesting, between da both of us we could make up one good dog though.
Please keep us posted on what da VET says. We bes thinking bout ya TD.


Lorenza said...

Hi, Thunder!
I hope it is only an irritation or a little infection.
I am sure your Vet will give you the right treatment!
Take care
Happy Sunday to all of you!
Kisses and hugs

I hope your eye is okay! That's no fun to be sick. Hopefully the trip to the V who shall not be named will be quick and painless!


houndstooth said...

P.S. Blueberry has allergies and one of her eyes always gets irritated, but the other one doesn't always seem affected!

Oh no! I'm so sorry you have a weepy eye. I hope it clears up real fast with some drops or antihistamine... or beers! Keep us posted. Paws crossed for a speedy recovery. We're all anxious to see BOTH of your beautiful blue eyes again!


giantspeckledchihuahua said...

I hope it turns out to be nuthin' and your beautiful blue eyes return to normao, RIGHT NOW!

The Thundering Herd said...

Paws crossed it is just allergies (though we are betting on a little claw action from a certain little wrestling partner - that has happened here).

P.S. - Rusty says if you get eye drops like he had to, make your humans dread the 5 times a day prescription.

♥I am Holly♥ said...

Thunder, we are praying and crossing our paws that your vet's visit goes well and your beautiful blue eyes will be totally clear again. Let us know please! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

Huffle Mawson said...

Poor Thunder Dunder! I hope you are okay. Maybe you should wear dark glasses so your mum can't see your eye.

Benny and Lily said...

Ahhh poor baby. Momma got a wash cloth, made it hot with hot water and used it on Lily's eye like a hot compress. It worked.

sparkeespud said...

Aww. I hope you get better! I get allergies too in my eyes. I had them in one eye one week and the other the next! The vet had me keep it cleaned out and gave me some drops just in case! It got all better on it's own!

Sending good vibes your way!

AFSS said...

Paws crossed it's not anything serious.

We all seem to be battling allergies here.

Tessa the Maltese said...

Hi, Thunder your eye looks like it could be irrititated or even an infection.

Feel better!

Flo de Sendai said...

Poor baby, nothing serious I hope, let us know !

Sierra Rose said...

Oh no!! I got into an irritant of some sort, and had one of my eyes go a bit strange, spots on the skin around and a bit closed. The vet put me on topical antibiotics and it took a few days, but I am better!! Wishing eye-health to you too :)

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

Wild Dingo said...

The Teacher's Pets said...

You are probably going to the V-E-T-S office tomorrow beclaws you probably need some eye drops and when you get them you need to ask your mom to please put them in your eye as soon as pawsible!
Please tell us how your eye feels tomorrow!

BeadedTail said...

We hope everything is okay with your beautiful blue eye Thunder! That has happened to me before too and it was allergies so hopefully that's all it is for you too. I'm crossing my paws and my sisfurs are sending purrs!


Dory and the Mama said...

Happy Thoughts are headed your way Thunder. I am sure the vet will only do things that will make you all better...

Smileys & Snuggles!
Dory, Bilbo and Jacob

Deborah said...

I saw it too! I hope it's nothing serious. Was he bit by a bee or something. It looks sore, did you put warm compresses on it? I'm not sure what to do being right next to the eye and all.

mayziegal said...

I'm very much sorry abouts your eye! My Brudder Ranger one time scratched his cornea and it was kinda like that. So they gaves him some ointment and some pain medication and an eye patch and sent him home. Haha! Nooooo...I'm kidding abouts the eye patch. But wouldn't that be cool? Arrrrr!

Wiggles & Wags,

Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

Woof! Woof! Sending you my Golden Healing Thoughts. For sure by the time you go the the vet ... its all better. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Mr. Pip said...

Hope it goes OK at the vet! Seems like a couple of bloggie doggies are having eye problems.

Your pal, Pip

Doris Sturm said...

Oh, you're just soooo beautiful - I couldn't keep my paws (hands) of you look so soft and huggable...I know the Vet will fix you right up.

"...but my, what beautiful blue eyes you have..." (sound familiar?)

Wyatt said...

Stanzie gets alergy eyes...hope that is all it is. We will fill up one of our lucky horseshoes with good wishes for your vet visit!


Twix said...

A trip to the V.E.T.? I'm so sorry. Now, I have to tell you something that my mom has done for me when my allergies start bothering me. YOu see she works for an eye doc and uses some allergy eye drops. A long time ago she asked my old vet about them helping my watery eyes and they said they wouldn't hurt and we could try it. Well, it does help me so even if this isn't allergies you might have your mom keep that in mind. My mom says there are several good OTC allergy drops available (Zatidor). Of course, you should check with your vet first, but you already know that, right?

Mack said...

Did baby sister have something to do with this?! BOL!
We hope your baby blues are as right as rain real soon!


Stella said...

Now that Frank Sinatra is gone, you are my only Ol' Blue Eyes, and you gotta take good care of them. Summertime has too much stuff to get your system upset, like weeds, allergies, bugs and bees! I am more for winter!


Sally said...

Sorry to hear about your allergie.
We had the same hear and the vet told us to clean it with soap of Marseille, but very little soap on a wet sponge. It did work out. And don't touch the eye.
Nice woooh

Inigo Flufflebum and d'Artagnan Rumblepurr said...

Poor puppy, we hope you're doing ok.

Mushing Kodi said...

Oh no i hope you're eye gets better soon! *hugs*

We hope it's just a little hay fever, Thunder!

Jake of Florida said...

Those beautiful blue eyes are so special. We're glad your mom will have the vet check you out to see if anything is wrong.

You have a good mom to be so attentive.

Wirey love,

TD got a boo boo in his eye...poor baby. We hope it's just allergy and nothing serious. Please feel better soon.

Ruby and Penny said...

Oh no. We hope your eye is better today Thunder. Sending some get well quick vibes your way.
Love Ruby & Penny

Sue said...

It looks like you've been rubbing your eye. Maybe something got in there. I bet the vet will give you some cool refreshing drops to clear it up.

Sychoberians said...

Not cool. We hope you and especialy your eye get better soon.

Remy and Flash

Sagira said...

Ouchies! Hope your eye feels better soon!

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Oh no, my dear Thunder Boy! My mom slacks off on helping me read blogs and what do I discover? My boy is sick! She is going to be in trouble now, but enough about her. I sure hope your eye gets better soon. Once Steve had a little irritation around his eye and he ended up having a form of mange common in puppies. You're not a puppy though, so I'm not sure what to tell you except to say that I'm sending you kisses.


Joe Stains said...

Oh gosh that did look like a sad eye, we are glad you are feeling better!

Piappies World said...

Hello Thunder!

It's great news that it's nothing serious. Sorry we just got around visiting blogs now, thus our late comments. Silly Mom did read the update yet decided to comment in this post because she says she could not help but look at your lovely smiling photo here!

We hope that the ointment won't be a struggle to put. We usually give our mom a hard time giving us meds and all. Waaaaah

Please we better soon, Mr Blue Eyes!
