Ruby Update

   Hi Everybody

This is a quick update on Ruby and I am happy to say that her eyes are now so much better.

The top photo shows how they where a few weeks ago when I took her to the vets. Very red, very weepy and must have been very painful for her.

She could barely open them and she was very out of character. 

But after a few weeks of bathing and drops and regular visits to the vets she is now recovered and I can see those beautiful eyes again.

What a worry it was but now she is back to her gobby self  barking at all and sundry who dare to walk past her house.

Once I am back to normal with my knee surgery I am hoping to go on a good long walk with her maybe along the beach or to the country park that is nearby.

That has a stream running through it and Ruby loves to swim. Typical Spaniel always looking for water and mud.

Someone once told me that a dirty Spaniel is a happy one and that is so true as she loves finding the messiest puddle she can and get in it.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  16. Awww, poor baby. She looked miserable. I am so glad she's better. I have cats and my oldest cat looked like she was going blind, but after several weeks of eyedrops and meds, I could see her beautiful eyes again, so I know exactly how you felt. Our fur babies have helped us through some extremely difficult times, haven't they? So we want them to have the best of care.
    I will be thinking of and praying for you, Christina. I fell and broke my femur back on Oct. 21st, and am still recovering from it. Had to spend 1-1/2 months in rehab with physical therapy every day. I sincerely hope that you will recover much quicker than I am. Wishing you a speedy recovery, Christina.

  18. Hello Ruby and Ruby’s Mum! It’s great to hear you’re feeling better and that your eyes have recovered. I’m sure you missed your long walks and playing in puddles. I know when your Mum has recovered from her knee surgery that you’ll have fun taking walks. I’m going to keep your Mum in my thoughts and prayers. Take care and be a good girl for your Mum.
