This is what my 120 lb dog and a 10 lb cat would do all day long if I'd let them...peas in a pod...

That might be the best thing for him...

I may have to get one soon, to help fade some of the heat off my Lab - I think he hates me now for bringing the new pup home! Life's getting a bit better with some age, but the pup is still pure hell-on-wheels!
Here's a photo of a brief moment of recent peace...Notice where the Labs eyes are?? Always ready for the next attack!!

I'm afraid of the vet bill should the cat hook the dogs eye...the cat has actually jumped on the dogs head before and locked on. It was pretty funny but then you start to consider the all bad.

It takes a while for a pup to grow up enough to be tolerated.

Sadly my Flat Coated Retreiver was diagnosed with Cancer six weeks ago. He's still around but slowing down.

Good! I know more people with lyme disease than animals...

Good luck to your new pup. Nearly lost the cat twice in the last few months, but she is doing well thanks to UPenn vet.

Don't mess around with your dog's eyes and go straight to the ophthalmologist if you suspect something wrong. Here is my dog this morning before his surgery.

They don't know exactly, but we do know what it is not. It started with a slight blue grey haze.

The vet did as well but did not see any scratches with the dye test (and did this twice). Glaucoma tested normal, 16. Then said it could be Lyme tick, took blood and prescribed steroid drops. The eye responded to the drops and looked normal that evening. The blood work returned negative. About two weeks later the haze returned, called the vet who said start the drops again and come in the following day. The eye looked normal but is measured 56 on the glaucoma test (a very high number - migraines in humans over 35). Emergency visit with the ophthalmologist a few hours later who said the pressured detached his retina. Now blind in that eye. About $150/month in four different drops to prevent the glaucoma from recurring and to try save the blind eye from further failure. They said most likely it would need to be removed within the year. It was 8 months. Will know more with the pathology results next week in an effort to establish preventative treatment for his left eye.

Give him a big hug for us!! I hope he has a speedy recovery and you're able to quickly figure out what the root of the problem was! Dogs are super resilient, so he'll bounce back quickly and be chasing sticks in no time!

Our mini schnauzer went blind when I was growing up. We had 2, a brother and sister. Dad attached a small bell onto his sister's collar, one you use on a fishing pole, and ole Fritz would just follow the sound of his sister's bell when they ran around outside.

He was blind for almost 7 years. Changing the living room furniture around didn't happen as often as mom wanted to. It would only take Fritz a few days to figure it out. Boy those few days were funny though. I sure miss him now.

What a beautiful dog, Russell - sorry you're all going through that. Hoping for a speedy recovery for sure!

Also saw this today. Same name as my dog Murphy and I could totally see him doing this:

Murphy The Dog Smashes Into Oven, Still Gets Ball. Good Boy! (VIDEO)
