Here I am…standing strong & proud..after having a bazillion needles poked in my back on Tuesday…enough of this torture already!! (but don't I look
And this form spent the afternoon keeping a watchful eye for tree rats…one had the nerve to run across my deck & under the storage shed! Tree rats…be afraid…be very afraid….

A bit of inflammation of the third eye-lid seems to be the cause of Schatzi's weepy eye. For now, we are going to monitor for the next couple of days..to see if it settles down on it's own.
She has a bit of weight on..normal for after an in-active winter..so we will work hard to get a pound or two off!
Otherwise..she was very happy to be back in the car & headed home!
I'm the "other" doxie who lives here..Schatzi is my name…pleased to re-acquaint myself! Lately this blog has bee all about "O"…but today it's all about me. We have lots to catch up on…
So yesterday I thoroughly enjoyed an early evening patrol & folks, let me tell you…the mice have been running the fields in this neighbourhood for far too long…(none that I could see, of course)…but I have a nose for them…and I know they've been scurrying about. I put out the word..Schatzi is on duty…so consider this fair warning…
And after patrol..I gnawed & chewed a delicious roasted bone before bed…stripped it clean. And since it is May, that means time for a Sentinel pill…I take mine in one gulp…not like a spotted dum-dum who needs a pill pocket to disguise pills…such a wuss! Last week was my spring spa-di-cure…tip to toes in suds & bubbles…so I smell fresh as a flower..cause I'm such a girly girl ..(NOT).
This morning Mama has informed me that we are dropping in to see Dr. Condon & all the grrreat gals at the clinic! She assures me this is merely a social call & not a visit to the room of doom to have any runny eye looked at. Cause I would be really whiney & worked up if that was the case. Phew…glad THAT'S not gonna happen, right?
Just going to enjoy a leisurely drive & stop in & wish everyone a good day, right? Cause Mama wouldn't try to pull a fast one on me…I'm waaay to smart for that!!

Mama spied this jersey t-shirt & since a certain spotted boy tends to lick his under-paws…he sometimes is required to cover up. If he is wearing a t-shirt…it's because he got caught licking…and is forced to wear a "shirt of shame". If he licks, the wetness causes bacteria, which usually results in an infection…so wearing a t-shirt is a preventative measure. Sometimes an antibiotic ointment is required..and frequent medicated baths, Benedryl & Atopica. All part of his allergies & immune system...
Schatzi uses the Break-fast bowl…. designed for little piggy wiener dogs who like to inhale their kibble…and Oskar has a bright little yellow bowl..he prefers to have a long, leisurely meal...
