It's a Doodle!!

Well the DNA results are in and Quinn is a Doodle!! He is first generation Irish Wolfhound/Standard Poodle. I had thought poodle from the beginning, but wasn't really expecting it to be pure on both sides. We're not sure how Gracie feels about there officially being another doodle in the house. She said she needs to sleep on it.

Stitches are out and his eyes look great. We're not done yet though, because now he has a bacterial infection in his ears. So we have a couple of weeks of…

Lions, and Tigers, and Doodles--OH MY!

This is the costume contest photo I referred to in a previous post. It's from a couple of years ago when a dog park/club we belonged to had a Halloween puppy party. It was great fun!

Quinn's DNA

DNA results on Quinn have been returned to the vet! She will give them to us when we go in for removal of stitches on Tuesday. Partly excited and partly wishing I never did the test. Thinking it may say Gracie has a Pomeranian/Pug as a brother or some such thing!

P.S. For those of you who saw it, I deleted the Halloween Photo contest post. I checked out the top 200 out of over 800 entries so far and there was no Gracie :p - Also, they want an email address for voting and I don't…

The Cone -- The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

I like bad news first . . . so, The Ugly: Quinn's cone neatly removed the small wooden ladder of "special memory" knick knacks from the wall. I now have an earless and footless rabbit, a buttless West Highland Terrier,  and a headless flamingo--whose head has yet to be found :( The Bad: Since Quinn's peripheral vision is limited to begin with, he now misjudges the distance between his cone and just about everything, which causes frequent disruption in his…

Quinn Surgery

Quinn is getting his entropion surgery tomorrow. Today was a particularly bad eye day. Lots of rubbing and pawing; rinse and eye gel didn't seem to help much, so it's good we are getting it taken care of, but I am nervous. . . . sigh.

Quinn Update

Hello there doodle friends! I've been absent for a couple of weeks, but wanted to share the latest on our Mighty Quinn. Had our ophthalmologist appointment just this past Monday and yes, Quinn has entropion of both lower lids. We got an estimate of $3,300. which I definitely was not expecting. Made some phone calls and we are now looking at $900 - $1,200 which is much closer to what I was expecting. The first facility/surgeon was fantastic, but they are very close to NYC, which probably…
