Toby Went to the doctor for a recheck

Toby passed out 2 hours after his appointment with the doctor.
His eye is healing nicely. We will continue the antibiotic drops for 1 more week. The doctor suggested steroids but I didn't think it was necessary. We are schedualed to go back next week.

Toby LOVES Strawberries!

We discovered early on that Toby likes strawberries. I know yogurt is good for all animals so I offered Toby some strawberry yogurt. Toby LOVED it. Joe my husband has a cup of strawberry yogurt every morning. Since we found out Toby likes them so much we tried giving him a bite of strawberry popcicle. He loved that too! Joe just bought a half gallon of strawberry ice cream to share with his buddy. Yummy
I have a red check dress that Toby likes. He gives a happy pant when I come out wearing it. One day I asked him why he liked it so much. He showed me a picture of a red check table cloth in my head! I laughed so hard. I look like a table! So this morning I told him I was going to wear his favorite dress. I asked him which handkerchief to wear with it. I showed him a flowered one and one with hearts and one with strawberries. Toby said in my head "I like strawberries" So I put on the strawberry handkerchief today

Woodcrest Bike Shop

Here is me and Toby at Woodcrest Bike Shop run by Julie and Bob who have their own Chijuajuah in the back. Toby likes it when I go next door to the 7-11 and get a hot dog to share.

Toby Stays Calm

Toby update:
Well it has been 9 months since we adopted the little guy. Skin and bones and shaking. Now he is fat and lazy and pretty happy. We made a little mile stone today. Hubby left to go get lunch while I was taking a shower. Normally Toby would act up and begin pacing and whining as soon as he heard the lock click on the door. Today he whined, looked out the living room window, and then poked his nose in the bathroom! I was so proud of him. I got dressed and he waited a lot more quietly in the office while I got the dining room table ready for lunch. I knew hubby was home though. Toby kicked it up 2 notches when he heard the truck in the driveway. LOL Toby settled down as soon as hubby was inside. Oh and he got a fair share of lunch too

Toby Goes to the Vet

We were going to go to the vet. Then when I did a map look up I saw 2 vet clinics! Messaged a good friend and found I was supposed to go to the other hospital! Whew good thing we averted a horrific experience. Will make an appointment for the Animal Hospital today 
Toby is home from the vet. He has a small abscess on his left eye like he may have gotten poked with something. The dr was very thorough and gave Toby a numbing drop and an anitbiotic. The visit was 30$ The meds were 50$ Joe says it is still pretty good that we got out of there for less than 100. They want to see him again in one week. Toby is relaxing next to my chair now. We had bacon jerky and some cheese together when we got home Toby is my bacon buddy.
Toby showed me a new game yesterday!
I was rolling up more bins of yarn some that were left out on the floor. Toby came up and said "I been a good boy I did not mess it up too much!" Then while I was rolling it up, Toby poked his paw at the trailing end and gave a "HA" pant laugh. "I know this game! This is put your paw on the line I win" The doggy version of a cat chasing a string. He had no prey instinct behind it like the energy a cat has when playing. Toby just thinks putting a paw on it means you WIN! Such innocence...

yep he got his meds eye drops today and he is pretty dog tired from yesterday's adventure
he even slept past my coffee and donut in bed time!
TY for asking
Oh and I got this months issue of Dog Fancy today Thanks!
I almost died laughing yesterday. In the wiaiting room there were 3 owner dog look a likes!
There was a peach colored Poodle with a timid attitude. her owner was a short asian dressed in all pink
Then there was a brown and white Papillon and her owner had died redbrown hair and a brown and white flowered t shirt on They both had kidney stones! She was complaining of being diagnosed with kidney stones Now her dog has bladder stones!
and then there was me and Toby and Joe jeans and t shirt me black hair with white around the edges Toby black hair with white around the edges
The doctor was superb! He even took a black light and dye to look in Toby's eye!

I was schedualed to see Dr Bennet and thought that maybe Toby would like Dr Han since he prefers men . Well dr Benmnet was busy So we got to see Dr Han!
Yesterday we were having to buckle down with our finances for the meds. First a I got a 10$ Walmart card that I had cashed in. Next I got an email from my stepmom Toby's "Grandma" that she is going to send a check for the whole bill!
Today Joe wanted to go on a fun outing to the bike store I remember the dr saying we should keep Toby in doors while he is on the eye drops because they dialate the eyes I did not say we shouldn't go
But when Joe called to see if the parts he ordered had come in There was a message saying that the store would be closed until Friday
I hadn't even voiced my concern about taking Toby out!
we are staying home today and tomorrw!
we are praying that the people at the bike store are ok...the message did not sound good She sounded really sad. I will be praying for them...
so God is meeting us at every turn in the road
