Ribbons of Drool

photo.JPGThat photo pretty much sums up my Saturday.  See the STREAMS of drool on each side of her mouth? 

Yeah.   Sis didn’t feel well.  She’s normally a great rider and the belle of the ball when we get to the eye vet’s.  Not Saturday.  They were worried.  I was worried and frustrated because I didn’t know what the problem was.

Sissy’s favorite tech suggested the depth perception problem (that comes with only having one eye) was causing motion sickness.  Maybe, but it didn’t FEEL right…

Hem.  I finally realized on our walk that afternoon, when she had a ring of tiny bubbles around her mouth, that the girl had been helping me when I gave her a bath from the neck up first thing Saturday morning.  She kept licking her ears, even while they were soapy. 

Yep.  Sis took in enough soap that it upset her tummy, made her drool like a river, tremble like a leaf in a tornado, etc.  Gah.

The good news is she’s fine, and her eye pressure was a nice, low 6. 


You can see, she was up for a big adventure walk despite it all.  That’s the Rivanna River.   The girls don’t have any interest in diving in, thankfully.

Have you ever ingested too much soap?

    Anytime I would bathe Fred with smell shampoo he would try and lick it off his ears during bath time – drove me nuts.

    Im so glad that her eyes checked out great and her little sissy went for moral support.

    Thank you so much for sharing the story about the eye vet on my page – it made me tear up. Im so thankful for sweet and caring people like you during this time. – hugs_ I know the worry feeling you have for sissy as a dog mom and your not alone.

    We have never had the soap situation but this weekend Macy discovered that putting her mouth on a frog is NOT the thing to do. That led to a lot of drooling too!

    Glad to hear about the good report from the vision vet!

    not since I was a wee one myself and had my mouth washed out with the stuff for saying HBO words. Glad the girl had a good report, sorry her helpfulness caused you both distress. g

    Goodness! We’re glad it turned out to be a temporary, if unpleasant, condition. And we’re super happy the eye pressure continues to stay low.

    Jed has just been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that causes different issued depending on what part of his body is under attack. We’re still learning about it, and how – we hope – to deal with it to keep it under control.
