Daisy’s Corneal Ulcer

I had to take Daisy to the vet on Thursday.

We are using a local vet that has a new practice. I felt like their charges were cheaper than the bigger vets in our area but at the same time, you need to be careful at these vet offices because they find reasons to charge you for one more thing.

Daisy had been winking at me all day Wednesday so I knew something was wrong with her eye. I was worried she might have lost her sight.

After staining it the vet discovered she had a corneal ulcer which is often caused by trauma like dogs playing, or a stick, etc. She and Zoee always play so this is not surprising but now Zoee is trying to kiss the eye back to good health like she knows it’s bothering her. This is driving Jack and me both crazy.

She has eye drops every 8 hours for a week then every 12 hours for 2 weeks and anti-inflammatories for irritation caused by the ulcer.

All in all, she is fine but it’s a good thing I noticed her winking at me lol.

Daisy girl turns 9 years old

It seems like yesterday when we had this tiny little boxer we named Daisy.

Today she turns 9 years old.

She was an aggressive little pup and very opinionated. She hated long sleeves on anyone. The vet told us he thought whoever removed her dew claw and tail had long sleeves and they did a bad job on the dew- claw and probably hurt her.

We got her out of this stage and she became very playful loving to play fetch and jumping as high as she could and doing boxer acrobats. Then cooling off in her plastic pool like she was relaxing after a long hard day.

She still loves the Chunk It balls the orange one that is basically indestructible and she loves the big tug a war ball called the Jolly Ball.

She still talks to me when I talk directly to her and ask her questions lol. She loves a treat when she comes in from outside.

She sleeps more now and plays less but gets her energy spurts sometimes.

Pics with her ears like she’s flying I love and Jack says she’s the flying nun. She is still very photogenic and always has been.

Even though she’s a little bossy she will always be my Daisy Girl and I love her very much.

Happy 9th Birthday Daisy I hope someone gives you extra treats today lol.

Daisy girl

I found this picture from last year of Daisy and the way her head was tilted was so cute.

I decided I needed to post it so Daisy could say HELLO.

She is a talker you talk to her she talks back I have no idea what she is saying but she does talk.

Dogs bring lots of smiles to your life and joy to your heart.

Daisy is 8 years old

Miss. Daisy turned 8 years old last Thursday April 22.

She is still very active but has slowed down over the last year she does not demand fetch as often as she use to and she does not jump on our bed as much. This girl loves laying outside in the sun and when she gets hot she moves to the shade.

Daisy has developed nasal Hyperkeratosis on her nose its like a dry crusty area. Every time I try to put aquaphor or baby oil or something on it she wipes it off. It is quite common in boxers and nothing to worry about.

I think she is a bit pudgy right she does not have a waist but she is getting older. I have cut back on her food again we will see what happens. About a year ago I started feeding her and Zoee separate so she would not eat Zoee’s left overs.

The pictures of her looking away Zoee was in the den window in the house and Daisy was keeping her eye on her lol. It is easier for me to do pics when they are outside alone.

Daisy is a very sweet boxer dog whos favorite game is playing fetch with a Chunk It ball. We now buy the large size ones because the mediums in Crickets mouth disappeared and I was so scared she would swallow it.

Daisy is aging quite well and really does not look her age. I love my Daisy Girl even though she is spoiled rotten.

Happy 2nd Birthday Zoee

Zoee is two years old today she is one of our two boxer dogs.

Happy Birthday Miss Zoee.

She is just as hyper as she was at 5 months old when we got her.

Of the 3 dogs, she is the one who is always running, jumping, and hopping all day long.

She lives to run like a greyhound across the yard making tight turns and leaving the other two in her dust in the 1/2 acre back yard.

You can not water your plants with her in the yard because she loves to get the spray of the hose and you spend all your time playing with her.

We love our Zoee she is the sweetest boxer dog shes a snuggler and a lightweight compared to the other two.

She was a great addition to our family as a companion for Daisy and she has been great playing with Cricket and teaching her tricks of the trade. All 3 dogs get along great probably because they are all 3 females.

She was not cooperating for her photo session so hopefully more pics soon.

Dogs will put a smile on your face and find a special place in your heart but most of all they will change your life forever.

Boxer dogs in action

Daisy and Zoee love to play different games but one of their favorites is jumping for the stick.

Sometimes it is easier if one is in the house so you can have one on one time.

Zoee is an extreme sports dog she is light as a feather at 35#s and she can jump so high the stick and the water hose are her favorite jumping toys.

Daisy can jump good but not as good as Zoee she is probably about 70#s.

The first pic Zoee landed on Daisy that actually makes them mad at each other lol.

The second pic is all about those facial expressions with Zoee.

Third pic Daisy got a hold of that stick.

Fourth pic Zoee is Dancing.

Getting the action shots for me is always a challenge with multiple dogs next time we will try one at a time.

Daisy Mae Praying

Daisy would like everyone to know she is saying her prayers for our country.

I caught her in this pose and could not resist taking her picture and making this post. Daisy rarely and I do mean rarely gets on the couch.

I think we all need this a little bit of inspiration by none other than our boxer Daisy Mae.

Prayers

Daisy’s 7th Birthday

Miss. Daisy Mae is our boxer whos birthday is today she turns 7 years old. She still acts like a puppy.

I think she takes a few more naps these days but she’s always ready and willing to play fetch or go somewhere in the truck. She loves picking mulberries off the tree or the ground.

She has this cute moan when you’re not paying attention to her and as time goes on it gets louder and longer most people think that is hilarious.

Daisy has a lot of fun with her sisters Zoee and Cricket but she gets tired of being the babysitter lol.

Happy Birthday, Daisy we love you!

The boxer dog kiss

Our two boxers dogs love to run, play and wrestle together.

Daisy is 6 yrs and 9 months & Zoee is 1 yr 6 months.

They get into these kissing sessions that are normally initiated by Miss Zoee she loves her Miss Daisy girl.

I wanted to do their pics together so I raked up the cypress tree leaves into a large pile and this was their idea of a photo session.

Gotta love these two doggies.

Pitiful Pups

I was in the front yard with the grandkids, Jeanelle and their new Cane Corso puppy.

The pup had just had its ears cut so they are super tender and we were trying to do some pics but Mako ( the pup)  was not cooperating.

We went to the side yard in the front for fewer distractions and low and behold Daisy and Zoee were in the backyard and they did this pitiful pose at the gate.

These two are always trying to be the center of everyone’s attention.
