Primrose's eye is healing rapidly now and I've loaded up a slide show of photos of the injured eye taken at 7 days, 10 and today 13 days since injury and the formation of a corneal ulcer on the eye.
The injury to the cornea is now closed over with scar tissue and this may take a few months to become clear again and she might even be left with a slight scar on the cornea, time will tell. Just really happy to see it going on so well.
Any dog can get a corneal ulcer on the eye as a secondary condition to an injury to the cornea, but brachy breeds tend to be more prone to getting injuries to the eyes, due to the eyes being set at a more protruding angle. We have tried to breed our Cavaliers to be less brachy and with cross breeding we hope to improve the head shape even further.
My last blog was a bit dire and tonight I'm going to cheer things up with a few photos of the dogs looking chilled out and a joke I reheard the other day on our local news programme by two proper North Devon ladies. A proper North Devon joke told in proper North Devon dialect, although I will tell it in plain English here.
'Stan and Agnes got married and after the wedding and settling into their married life Stan told Agnes that he would put a box under the bed and if either one of them was ever unfaithful, they would put an egg in the box.
Sixty years passed and Agnes removed the box from under the bed and in the box was three eggs. She was a bit disappointed, but turned to Stan and said, "Well, after sixty years of marriage I suppose only three eggs is not so bad, but Stan could you tell me what all that money is doing in the box."
Stan replied " Every time I got a dozen eggs. I sold them and put the cash in the box." Lol'
If you like that joke and want to hear these lovely old ladies talking in North Devon dialect (my own tongue). Take a look at 'When Granny stayed for Christmas-Pure Devonian Gold' on Youtube at this link address https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUiETH4le20
And just to show you I'm still standing after my last blog I've added this video to hopefully make you laugh as well. Don't often let the children use the WII, we bought them a couple years ago. I think the last time they used the 'Lets Dance 3' game was last Christmas and as usual they begged me to have a go. Okay, I begged them to have a go. I have no shame, which is apparent from the video. In fact I have got shame, as this video taken of me, without me knowing by our daughter Florrie was over three minutes long and I edited out my gyrating the world is yet not ready to see. Lol. Not advisable to dance with crocs on your feet, on a rug, as very hard to slide your feet.
So enjoy the miracle at Christmas I share with you, a woman 46 years old, that has given birth to six children, who needed a pee, dancing without peeing herself. Enjoy. Lol
