Good Boy Quinn!

First day back to school. My husband is working the late shift, and so we had to leave Quinn and Gracie for only 2.5 hours, which is still more than double any of my practice runs. Was a little nervous about what I might find, but he was GREAT! He was sooooo excited to see me return. I couldn't calm him down and had to get him out of the house before he knocked something over! I have to give Gracie a huge amount of credit throughout this process. I know she has been confused and even a…

Day 16 with Quinn

I went to clean Quinn's eyes this morning, and got it into my head that his lower lids were rolled in. Called the vet, they had an opening within the hour, zipped over there...and I was wrong. Worth the visit though as the vet was able to do a pupil check and both pupils are reactive. I'm hoping that's good news in regard to the ONH and the amount of vision he will have in the future. Also got a prescription medicated shampoo and a suggestion to give him Benadryl for his eyes. It's very…

Quinn's eye exam

Quinn had his eye exam with Dr. Aguirre today. The environment was a bit chaotic and I didn't get to ask many questions, but the bottom…

Quinn - The Food Hound!

Whether he's always been this way or it's the product of always being hungry, without a doubt, Quinn is always on the prowl for food. His chin rests at the height of the counter and right from the start, he was walking/sniffing the length of the counter. We immediately modified our food storage. No more baskets of bread and goodies on the counter. Now on day two, he has figured out how to open the kibble container, and just a bit ago, he stood behind me as I cleaned out the frig for garbage…

No place like home.

Quinn had a great night, and as you can see, he is feeling at home already. Put his bed on the floor right alongside me and there he slept all night long. Gracie is a bit wary of him right now. He play-pounced on her a couple of times and then this morning, he whacked her in the head with his tail--she yipped :( She still approaches him with tail wagging, but she is giving him a pretty side berth when he is moving around. I don't blame her and I know it will all work out. There is a learning…

Are two dogs better than one? Opinions please.

So...a very dear friend of mine manages a local humane society/shelter, and today I went by to drop off a dehumidifier that we donated. Well...I met "Woofie" a very young (likely about a year or so) Irish Wolfhound--mix maybe. He's not HUGE, but he's very, very big. He was found just two days ago along the river and he's in rough shape. Pretty skinny, infected eyes, ragged coat, skin irritations, a hematoma on his elbow... Here's the thing though, I played with him for a short while, and he…
