A Visit To The Dogtur

Yesterday eye, Murphy, had to go see Dr. Eddy.  Eye had a thingie on my I-lid and mom said it was getting bigger so eye needed it checked out.  So after our run she called and they said Dr. Eddy could see me right away.  Stanley came along for moral support.


I like Dr. Eddy.  Usually we go to the dogturs at Hill AFB but for impawtent stuffs we go to Dr. Eddy.



It's true.  He said I was a very good boy and he was amazed how I let him play with my ears.  He said he couldn't believe it.  So he looked at the thingie on my eyelid.  Of course I was concerned about what the treatment would be.


My biggest fear is to need glasses cuz they would bounce off with all my fancy fetching moves.  Dr. Eddy said he didn't think I needed glasses.


So now I have to go see the Special Eyes Dogtur.  Mom said it was only for doggies with special eyes.  Mom called and left a message for an appointment but they haven't called back yet.  But I figured I better work on the backup plan just in case . . . 




Murphy & Stanley


Mom Note:  At this point it looks like a small cyst but Dr. Eddy wanted an ophthalmologist to look at it due to it's proximity to Murphy's tear duct. We aren't overly concerned but it seems to be getting bigger and we want to follow up and get it taken care of while it's small and easier to deal with.  Murphy is very concerned about the glasses.

is that the same Dr. Eddy Goose had and who takes care of Buddy now? Then he must be super good. We hope the eye-dogtor has good news for you and a magic potion to chase that cyst away... that's better than glasses, I agree. For the mama it was the end of her whole life and she was sure that she will die lonesome and furgotten like a spider in a cellar , when she gets glasses... at least the 14-year old teen-mom said that to her mother :o)

You are in good hands Murphy... angel Jade once had something which sounds like your cyst thingo - and it turned out to be a lodged grass-seed causing swelling. Out with the seed, down with the swelling and nary a spectacle in sight... hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

Well, we hope you don't need glasses, but if you DO, you look really smart in those ones.
Both Cammie and I have been to an ophthalmologist. (Part of the agreement with our breeder.) They were SUPER nice there when I went - I even got cheese from the magic squirt can from them. It was awesome. Frankly, all I remember is meeting lots of people who gushed over me, getting snuggles, the cheese, and I think I kissed an intern. I couldn't help it.
Anyway - I hope that's how good your appointment goes, too!
Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

Maybe contacts would be a better alternative for your active lifestyle. We really hope it is just a little cyst and the treatment is easy.

OH how I WELL REMEMBER the SCARY EyeBall stuffs... And the EyeBall Specialist that I had to go to in Columbus...
So I'm thinkin this might be related to all the READING that we have to do as Mayor of Blogville... We Strain the Brain and EXHAUST the EYEballs... keeping Blogville Running like a well oiled machine. If you have to get Glasses... they should be COVERED under ComPAWnsation.
Hey DUDE... it's ME Ernie... Man those Glasses will Drive the WIMMEN crazy when the Bad Dawg Agency (BDA) has the next concert... they will be throwin their Collars on the stage... and RUBY will be .... MIFFED. Just Sayin.

Foley Monster, Pocket and River Song said...

You really made us laugh. We are praying that this is no big thing.

Jans Funny Farm said...

Don't worry. If you have to get glasses, you can always ask for contact lenses. haha

Seriously. you are getting lots of attention and good care. We're sure you will be okay.

Momo and Pinot said...

No worries, Murphy!! You're in very good hands! Like many said, contact lenses are other options for you. Can you believe our human mom has been wearing them for over 30 years?

Momo & Pinot xo

Jeanne Pursell said...

We sure do hope that it gets taken care of and you don't need glasses...we agree...contacts would probably be a better choice for you! BOL!

Mara said...

I hear you about the glasses. I wear them and whenever I do some exercise, they keep slipping down! I hope they can solve it some other way.

On the bright side, eyewear could make you look very geek-ish and no one will believe you're really a fast rocket chaser of Wilson. Good luck, buddy. 😎

M. K. Clinton said...

I hope that it is nothing and the dogtur will fix it right away. As far as the glasses, you look quite dashing in the pair you are modeling. Ruby is going to love the studious look. ☺

Tweedles -- that's me said...

I hope it falls off,, I had something on my lower lid,, and finally fell off when I was scratching my face,,
I hope yours falls off too,, or easy to remove.,
love

You look very handsome in glasses, Murphy. Maybe you can get some of those sport goggles for when you play fetch?
