I'm No Sissy!

Before I start my story today, I wanted to thank all of you who spoke up and let Mama know she should NOT have woken me up the other day while she was making the test movie on the BAR website. Sometimes Mama is soooo rude!! She comes up with silly excuses too. Like, "Bilbo, your hips are going to get too sore if you sit still too long". Doesn't she know I'm almost 14 years old and need my 6 hour naps!!


Lately though, my eyes have been getting VERY crusty. It was getting so bad late last week, that I could hardly open them. Mama called the V-E-T to make an appointment and they said Mama should soak my eyes with a warm damp compress.


 SAY WHAT??? OMD...I am not going to show you the 
torture that Mama put me through because it was just too horrible!!
She put a WET WASH CLOTH ON MY EYES!!!!



 Now...my face is ALL WET!



 Excuse me, Mama



I think I deserve a double pumpkin cookie reward for this!!!




Nom...nomnomnom
 Mama says getting old ain't for sissies. Well I'm here to tell you, I'm almost 14 years old and I'm no sissy!!

From Mama: Bilbo has a dogtur appointment on Friday for both his eyes and his hips and could use a little POTP that everything goes well

Dear Bilbo, We are only 5 and 6 and we like 6 hour naps too. We are sending you POTP for the vet. We know someone like you who is not a sissy won't have any problems with it!

My sister Katie is almost 14 but she is in much worse shape than you are. Getting old stinks, but it is what happens. Take care of yourself.

Mark Muller said...

You deserve a cookie for that treatment.

Madi and Mom said...

Oh no Bilbo you are NOT a sissy for sure!! I just went through some eye stuff too...maybe it is the curse of being 14 (I didn't know we were the same age).Last Sunday I was doing the blinky blinky at mom and my right eye was running. Yep I was at the vet at 10:30 a week ago today. It is was a wee infection that I seem to get every so often. I got stuck with a needle for antibiotics and then then then a bottle of eye torture came home with us. 3 drops a day for 7 days. Thank goodness for some odd reason I don't mind drops::I know amazing::
Today is my last day.

I send you a ton of kitty kisses on your sweet manly eyes and a gentle hug
Madi your bfff

Sending some POTP my pals. I went to the vet last week with crusty eyes. Turns out this old age thing makes so many changes to a body that now I have dry eye. Good grief

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Awwwww Pawfessor Bilbo..... your being treated so rudely... furst the WAKE UP and then the Wet Washcloth... Good Grief... this is NO WAY to be treating a superior senior such as yourself. We believe that your peeps need some re training...
Sometimes they have some very MISGUIDED Notions.

Casey said...

Getting older does suck, I turned 5 yesterday and I'm beginning to get grey hairs. What the woof is up with that.

Aroo to you,

Oh Bilbo my friend - I can so relate being 13 yrs old myself and having horrible hips and arthritis in my back too. I am going to have mom email your mom tonight about a new arthritis supplement that both Hazel & I have been taking for almost 2 months now. Mom is pleased with it so far.
hugs
Mr Bailey
Hazel & Mabel too

It's nice to see an entire post just about little Bilbo! As Joey dog can attest, being 14 isn't for sissies.

Jans Funny Farm said...

Oh, Bilbo, I'm 14 or 15 myself, so I understand that getting old ain't for sissies.

Merci

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Bilbo, you look quite good to us and your eyes are bright and sparkly. We hope whatever is making them crusty is easily fixed. Good luck at the vet's. Mom says you might ask the vet if can help her hips too:)

Look at the bright side...you got a yummy treat! ;)

The Army of Four said...

Definitely sending prayers for you, Bilbo!
My Zimmie had to have a warm compress on his face a couple times a day for a while, too. He told me it felt good, but that I shouldn't tell Mom. He got LOTS of treats and I think you should, too!
Cammie!

Millie and Walter said...

We're glad that you were finally rewarded for enduring such torture. We will keep our paws crossed that the dogtor visit goes well.

Dachshund Nola said...

But you're so freaking cute! Good luck at the vet! It seems to be vet week all over blogville.

Sammy Sam said...

Your mom is right. Getting older is not so good when things start to go wonky

Molly said...

You go, Bilbo! My paws will be crossed for your doctor visit on Friday.

Love ya lots♥
Molly
