Our vet said he has an injury on his eye which didn’t heal and now the iris is poking through. The build up of fluids behind his eye is what causes the weeping and the pain and he is in pain. She said it’s going to get a lot worse, no chance of healing. In addition to the pain from his exploding eye, he was having problems walking with a spinal injury and arthritis, deafness and other ailments and it would have been too late to save the eye. We did not want him to suffer during the Holidays, where immediate emergency care may not be available.
I once heard, “If you own a Papillon you will never go to the bathroom alone again,” it is another way of saying they are loyal to their owners. ..
Oh – that is SOOOO true! lol Thanks for sharing Cheryl !! // HART
Here are my two papillons, Sebastian (red/wht) and Romeo (tri-color). I decided to get my first Papillon (Sebastian) after dealing with an emotionally draining business situation gone bad. My friend Lisa thought it was the last thing I needed but later recanted and told me this little Pap of mine was the loving distraction I needed. Romeo entered our lives a month later. Lisa once again thought I went off the deep end, taking on two Paps but soon realized Romeo’s presence made us a whole and healthy pack.
Flash forward (two years later)…..
Sebastian, Romeo and I are doing quite well. We moved to sunny Florida to avoid the chilly fall and winter of New England. The boys are much happier here in their new spacious home and I am busy fixing up our new place. I once heard, “If you own a Papillon you will never go to the bathroom alone again,” it is another way of saying they are loyal to their owners. I can’t thank these two little guys enough for their loyalty as well as ability to heal a wounded heart.
Regards .. Cheryl
