Tonight Rob took the dogs out around 7 and I thought I'd sneak onto the deck above them,watch them play and maybe get some pictures. I enjoy standing up there and watching them run around when they don't know I'm there. Tonight they heard me open the door so first I was greeted with lots of barking.
Bailey thought she could jump up to where I was standing. They used to try that a lot when they were little. They had no concept of how high they could jump.
Once they saw that I wasn't going to throw any balls to them, they went ahead and continued their play.
This week has flown by. We were very busy. Noah is out of confinement now and is part of the pack again. So far we've had no problems between him and Fudge. Fudge still growls and pushes him, but Noah is ignoring him. Good Boy, Noah!
Both Fudge's ears were bright red on Sunday, but we have them under control now. We're cleaning them daily and getting some anti-biotic ointment rubbed on the flaps. Samba, Morgan and Sky each have one ear that was red and sore, but they're all better now.
Sky and Fudge and Tess had red eyes and they're producing a lot of tears. They're all getting allergy tablets twice a day and Sky has had some eye drops. They all seem better.
Fudge was chewing on one foot, but after inspecting it for a cut or a stone lodged under the pad, I didn't find anything. I soaked the foot in a betadine soak, then put some anti-biotic ointment between the pads and squished it around. So far today he's paid no attention to it.
It sounds like I'm running an infirmary here, doesn't it? Just part of having ten active dogs.
Be sure to visit all the doggies on Dogs on Thursday and tell them 'Hi'.
