The EYES have it...

Woo there~

I've gotten pretty lucky getting my assistant to get me back in the blog world and here is my next story. Some of you already know about this but "she" told me that I really do have to tell everyone "officially" some's not bad news...but it's not that great's just news!
It kind of all started here...
This is me helping train my assistant. She had to go to a lot of classes to learn how to give me livergreat samwiches the right way. Here I am giving her the "when I lay down, you give me livergreat" cue. This next one is the "when I sit, you give me livergreat" cue. As you can see by these pictures, I have my work cut out for me!!

I finally got her to graduate and we were leaving after the big celebration where I wowed the crowd with my training skills which included sit, shake and the impressive roll-over, when "it" happened. I met a guy that I didn't really seem to like very well. He kind of scared me and I showed him that he made me nervous. Well, Mom was worried because I pretty much like everyone. Then she noticed that I was looking at the steps real close when I went up the stairs at home. Hmmm....her tiny little brain started to wonder if there was something wrong. She checked with some people about my "issues" and they said I needed my "chocolate browns" checked. Since we live so furry close to Iowa State University Veterinary School we got an appointment there with their canine ophthalmologist, Dr. Betts who has been there for 30+ years and has looked at a lot of eyes. Here I am in the waiting room...

Mom thought she would try to find me something to look at that would make the time go faster. Can you believe that "this" is the first thing she found?

Pffffft....I'd rather take a nap:

So I did.....

Finally she came up with something better. I'd like to meet this guy and compare swappers.

Pretty soon, my doctor came out and took me back in a room. First he gave me snacks and then he got out some little bouncy balls and I chased them all over the room for him cuz he kept dropping them. Then he turned down the light and took a fancy pen out of his pocket and looked in my eyes with it. Then he gave it to Mom and she looked in my eyes. I have CRYSTALS in there. I thought that was kind of cool when I first heard it but I guess you're not supposed to have them grow in your eyes. Mom figured that those "crystals" were making people look different to me and making the stairs hard to see. My doctor called them "bilateral cataracts" and said that we just have to watch them for now. I'm going to go see one of my favorite people soon. His name is Scott and he runs the training center that I take Mom too. He is going to help me train her some more so she knows how to help me "see" things better if I end up growing more crystals.

Some of my furry good friends sent a wonderful gift to my Mom cuz she was bein' a baby about my crystals and I promise to share that furry wonderful story soon. But, in the mean time, I know there are a lot of you who are interested in getting another perspective on just how big I am, so I am going to share a furry awesome picture of me and Hollybollybananaboo's Mom!! She gives great hugs....and snooter kisses too!! I hope she comes back to visit with my furry special mal-a-sis Holly very soon.

Thanks to all my friends for thinking about me and for dropping by my blog, but please don't worry about me...I've got a really good snooter!

Remember all.....keep it furry!

Woo there pups~

After an extended absence, I am back to blog world!! I've got to try to catch you all up on what I've been up to since my last blog but I'm going to have to do that a little bit at a time. For now, here are some pictures of our last big snow storm (kind of like a flash-back). Plus, since it is starting to get warm, I thought some of you might want to be reminded of how wonderfully COOL snow it.

ME, of course...enjoying the gloriously COOL snow!
