Monday - The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

The Good - I want to thank everyone for their good wishes on my Gotcha Day, which couldn't really have been any better. And then this morning, Mayzie had this for me -

Is that a fabulous cake or what? I didn't even know she could bake! Lots of wags and nose licks coming in your direction, Mayzie!

Now I have to skip to The Ugly, which would be the nasty stuff in my ear. As Bolo will attest, we Shar Pei are subject to ear infections and the like. He's having problems, too. It was a bad night and I was forced to prevent Alpha Mom from sleeping much. As it happens my ears are up to date on cleaning and since this didn't really improve as the day went on, even with antihistimine, I'll be spending my evening at the Vet, instead of visiting with all of you as I'd planned. That's The Bad. We have a 7:30 appointment, but it's only about 5 minutes away. And, of course, you know that this means that the Moms will be chasing me around with that ointment to rub in my ears for days and days after this. I really do not like that. Ah, well. As long as they don't have to leave me there. I don't have a lot of issues in general, but I still get a little nervous when my humans leave me somewhere that is not home.

Anyway, I'll be around to visit as soon as I can, but if this runs late it might not be until tomorrow evening.


  1. Happy belated Gotcha Day Lola!

    I'll share my Surolan with you if you'd like. Misery loves company.

    Snuffles. -Bolo

  2. Oh ear itchies are just awful. And sometimes they make the humans keep the medicine in the cold box. Ick! I hope you don't have that kind. Be patient, my friend. You will feel better soon.


  3. Hi, Lola!
    I agree with Mango. Ear itchies are not funny!
    Let the Moms rub the ointment in your ears and you will be like new in no time!
    Take care
    Kisses and hugs

  4. i hope your ear feels better really really fast, miss lola. i've only had an ear infection once, and it was the pits. :( try to be good for your mama so she can get the dropsies in your ear!
    at least you have that super delicious cake from miss mayzie to get you through!

  5. I'm glad you enjoyed your cake, Lola. But oh...I'm so very much sorry about your ouchie ear problems! I'm glad you have a momma to take such good care of you and I hopes you're all better in no time.

    Feel Bettter Soon Wiggles & Wags,

  6. Thank you everyone. I'm back. Didn't have to stay. They found all sorts of things in my ears. Yeast and two kinds of bacteria.The vet said that this time I'm going to have to have that stuff put in my ears for a long, long time, as it always seems to come back after just normal treatment. Thank you for the offer to share, Bolo, but it seems I'll have plenty of my own.

  7. Aww, Lola, I'm sorry to hear that your ears are bothering you. That sounds miserable! Our paws are crossed that you're feeling better soon!


  8. Good you did not have to stay at the vet.
    I hope you'll be a good girl, and that you'll feel better very soon.

  9. Hi Lola,

    Ear infection can be a nuisance and takes sometime to heal... take care, my furiend and here's wishing you a speedy recovery.

    Licks, hero

  10. Oh Lola, ear gunkies are no fun! Maybe if mom gave ya a treat while she put the medicines in your ears it wouldn't be so bad. Mom gives us kisses, but we'd rather have cookies...BOL!

    Stella, Gunther and Betty

  11. Poor Lola...we are sorry about your ear infection.
    Mom and Dad were once owned by a mini Dachshunh...he too was cursed with ear infections I guess because of his hound ears....
    WE hope you are better today,
    Madi and Mom
