Coughing day

Paris seems to be having a bad coughing day today. Up at 3:30 am to give cough medicine, then at 6:30 am for a teaspoon of honey. That helped some but he is still coughing. I suppose this will be a three dose day.

He's resting now.

Been a while

Paris is doing great! He still has his moments but is enjoying life the best he can. He is still running into the walls and having his coughing fits. But he also is still playing squeaky sock and barking at the sounds he hears. He did very well with a garage full of Boy Scouts working on my sons Eagle Scout Project yesterday. He's a trooper.

How to Groom a Blind Yorkie part 2

Now, on to the bath...again, easy, because he can't see me coming. This used to be the "oh no you don't, you have to catch me first" part.

All soaped up and nowhere to go!

Doesn't that look like fun?

Looking good, Paris!

How to Groom a Blind Yorkie

It's easy because he can't see you coming with the bath and haircut stuff!
Here's his before:

During the haircut he decided that it felt pretty good to get a haircut and laid down for awhile. Which made it a bit harder for me but heck he's not a "show" dog.

Enough hair for another Yorkie:

Next comes the bath....

Foot update

Paris' foot is all better and he isn't licking it anymore. I'm not sure what it was but I'm glad it didn't take another doctor visit. Today is bath and haircut day so stay tuned for his updated hairdo!

Paris' Poor foot

Last night he slept all night with the neosporin and sock on and it looks better this morning. Here's a photo of what it looked like. I cut the hair off so the medicine would soak in better.

Paris has a boo boo

He just won't quit licking this one foot. So I put some medicine on it and cut a sock to fit. He's not too happy with this but its working...

Paris doing better

Whew, he just loves his squeaky sock! Here he is all worn out. Thats his sock under his head!
He is back to only taking his cough medicine twice a day and actually yesterday only once.  He seems to be having a hard time navigating the house lately. And He can't tell which direction my voice is coming from. We are enjoying the summer together before I have to go back to work. Hope you are having a nice summer also.

Well I painted the baseboards in one room and now Paris seems lost in there. Maybe I painted over his markers? Who would have thought?

Yesterday I gave him his coughing medicine three times in one day, a first for that. He was just coughing so bad. I will call the vet on Tuesday, today is a holiday in the US.

New Territory for Paris

This morning I moved Paris's fence in the backyard to make his roaming area a bit smaller, it will also keep him out of the garden.


You can see the fence that runs along the bushes and behind the garden. Here's where I moved it to help him out.

I can still move the plastic green fence part to get behind with the lawnmower.  Ta DA!

Walking circles

Poor Paris, he just seems to be walking around in circles. I found him in the back yard making huge circles trying to find his way back to the house. Maybe I need to make his area a bit smaller? He just seems to be more lost than ever.

Happy July!

Happy July! Paris is scared of the Fourth of July so I posted this on the First! LOL

Oh no! I hope I don't become one of those people who dress up their pets.....
