Katie and Grace

Hello, we are two sighthounds who like to blog and Tweet.

I am Katie Whippet - I am a brindle and white whippet, who likes to sleep and eat. I do have some duties, I keep the sofa safe, bark at the bin men, steal and hide shoes and help the puppy evict cats from our garden.

I am Grace Puppy - I am Grace Puppy - I am not actually a puppy any more, but, because I am young, Katie Whippet calls me puppy. I like to whine and play. My duties are keeping watch for cats in the garden.

We live with Mummy, and two cats, Yazz Cat and Tom Cat and like to tell everyone about what we are getting up to.

Pawly eye

If you follow me on Twitter, you will be knowing that I do be havings a pawly eye!  This pawly eye, caused me to break my tail!  Well, it had been causing me some discomfort and worrying Mummy for a long while.  It had been being producing a sticky discharge, and the vet do be thinking it was conjunctivitis. I had one set of drops, they did not make any impression at all.  I had another set of drops - then broke my tail, so mummy was more worried about my tail than my eye - and I don't think she applied them properly!  So, I carry on with a pawly eye - mummy kept bathing it - It did not get any worse, but it did not get any better!

Mummy decided I do be goings back to the vets agains!  I was very worried, because I did do breaking my tail last times.  I did do goings, and vet man did do givings us some more drops - which we had befores - but, although mummy applied them twice a day, for 7 days - I still had pawly eye - their was a lot of discharge coming out too.  Mummy was very worried - and did do research on the internet.  She did do findings that it could be down to inadequate tear production.  

Mummy did do taking me back to the vets thinking I would have to have an investigation into my pawly eye.  She said to the vet that her research had suggested inadequate tear production, he did do sticking something in my pawly eye.  He said that I did have inadequate tear production, but it was in both eyes.  He said that could be part of the problem.  He gave mummy some steroid drops for me, and told mummy to apply the other drops too.

So, I have lots of poking in my eye. At one point my eye did do swellings ups! But, it does feel better and I can be doings openings it properly nows!

Mummy is happier with it - she says it do not look so bloodshot - she has become an expert in the inside of my eye and my eyeball!  The discharge is still there, but it is clear.  

I do be hopings this be the last time I have to do goings to the vets.  But, no such luck! Mummy has booked us in for our booster injections next week! Oh no!
