Stinky Ear!

I found a sun spot in Mama's bedroom, and decided that sunbathing in the morning, indoors, is the best way of capturing my daily dose of Vitamin D!

As far as the Stinky Ear goes....its another ear infection. This time its the opposite ear than the first one I had 3 years ago. They say that once you get an ear infection, you are prone to getting them, so watch out Puggles, we are prone to them due to our floppy ears. ***Always make sure your Moms and Dads dry your ears really well after a bath. Thank goodness Daddy checked my ears and discovered the icky-ness before it got really bad. I was a good girl this time and didn't scratch as much to let the parents know I was in ear trouble.

So, after the Vet visit today, I'm on ear treatment and antibiotic ointments for 10 whole days. The worst part of this whole ordeal was that my weigh-in at the Vet came out at 22.3 lbs. The Vet told Daddy that she couldn't feel my ribs....=( Which now means...reduce food again and DIET, here I come.

Hi, CoCo!
Yes! I know about ear infections too!
That is why my mom cleans my ears like crazy all the time!
I am sure the ointment and the med will make you get better soon!
Sorry about the diet!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

So sorry to hear about your ear infection. Mommy will remember to clean my ear after my bath. thanks for reminding. must be really tiny. 22.3 lb is still too much?? so sorry.
I have small meals twice a day. I am used to getting treats in tiny pieces so I can have them many times a day. Mommy is worried about me gaining weight in TX since I don't exercise nearly as much as I did in Boston.
good luck with your diet! hope you ear gets better soon.

What a double whammy of bad ear infection AND a diet! Poor CoCo Puff!
Kudos to your Daddy for catching the infection early. And thanks for the heads up. Mommy sometimes cleans my ears with this bottle thingy and I hate it!
22.3 lbs is so little! But I know you are a smaller puggle and I know how hard it is to keep weight off! Now that the TX weather will start cooling down, just take some extra walkies!

Hugs and Licks, Bruschi
