What's Wrong With Joey Dog?

Greetings friends and fans. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your concerned doggie reporter 
Chester L. W. Spaniel.

While ghostwriter was in the hospital, my esteemed, and elderly colleague Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel wasn't feeling very well. 

Yes, I am feeling a bit elderly today.

He had goopy eyes and was blinking a lot. Our Jason and Joanna and Dad tried to wash them and keep them clean, and fed him his special dinner with a spoon, and tried to make him comfortable. When ghostwriter finally got home on Saturday, she gave him an antibiotic. 

He felt a little better by the evening and went out to supervise Dad cooking on the grill.

He felt a lot better Sunday morning too. 

But today he went to the vet and found out he has glaucoma in his left eye. Now he has eye drops and pills to take, and has to go to the eye specialist vet.

Doesn't it seem like trouble always comes in bunches?

Since Joey was too tired to do his weekly Saturday report, here are a couple funnies we found that he would like:

Oh and guess what? 

It actually rained today! There was a thunder storm this morning, and then it rained until this afternoon! 

Wow! Did we ever need that! 

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go and bark at the mail truck! 

Bark bark bark bark bark bark bark bark bark bark bark bark bark bark bark bark bark bark bark!


  1. We are hoping Joey feels better soon! Bilbo has to take eye drops and cream every day for his eyes too.

    Glad you finally got some rain!!

  2. Oh Joey Dog, I hopes your eye gets better super duper fast! I have my paws crossed that the eye-vettie will fix you up lickidy split! Oh, and FABulous job snoopervisin' the grill and makin' sure the mailpeep knows who's boss! Sendin' tons and tons of POTP and AireZens!

  7. We will keep our paws crossed for Joey that he feels better soon. Wasn't that rain yesterday great? Even if it did keep us in the house our pawrents were happy to not have to move the sprinkler around all day.
