Wils Eyes

In addition to inviting you for a peek inside my world, I also want to this blog to provide the reader some enlightenment involving some of the traits of the magnificent breed known as the pug. So now and again I will share with you my personal experiences with such quirks. Today we'll talk about eyes.
You see the pug loves pigment. We like to deposit little bits of it in random places on our bodies. I have a virtual constellation of little brown " beauty marks" all over my belly. Another place I have a collection is over my corneas. Not a place I would have chosen, but I had to learn a while back that, believe it or not, there are some things that are out of my control. My Mom and Dad do all they can to take care of  this issue, because this pigment can cause big problems with my vision.  I see a veterinary opthamologist who has Mom apply a couple of different drops in my eyes every day to help slow down this process. I don't mind the drops cuz after she's done I get treats. I also had an eye lift a few years back. A diva's gotta do what a diva's gotta do for the sake of vanity. ( At least thats how Mom described it to get me to go along. The doctor was describing some kind of inverted eyelid causing irritation that in turn causes the pigment to deposit ) All I know is that  it got the parents to spend more money on me, and thats what I'm all about. We'll save those details of that axiom for another post though.
So yesterday was my 6 month check up. Mom and I went down to Norwalk for the appointment. We went shopping, got coffee, and met lots of  fans. (I prefer to sniff around Fairfield County than the Valley, but if we lived there, Mom and Dad wouldn't have as much dough to spend on me. So I compromise) It was good news in that my eyes haven't gotten any worse. The doctor began talking about injections into my eye that may or may not help. We beat feet it outta there when she started on that tip. Mom called Dad when we were done and she told him my behavior was the worst it's ever been. I'm proud to say, mission accomplished! I don't like it when they start poking around and shining lights in my eyes, and I made sure to let them know. Don't get me wrong, my eye doctor is the best in the state, but I much prefer my beloved veterinary accupuncturist to her. I'll be visiting her next month, when I'll tell you all about her.
For those of you who would like more information on my condition I am providing a link for you to look into all the details.Pug Dog Club of America Personally it bores me and it's time to harass Mom for a walk.
Toodles for now,


  1. Hopefully my Wilma will not need the ugly procedures the Dr. recommended. I think she's beautiful as is! And knows the score with Vets. Atta girl, Wil!

  2. I'm with pixelgal and hoping you won't need the scary needles. Just glad you've got some excellent docs to keep you nice and healthy!
