Get your priorities straight!



Sigh. . . It's hard to get some attention when Mom has her laptop in her lap! Laps are for dachshunds, Mom! Get your priorities straight!

It's amazing how she can find space in my lap when the laptop is there. Sometimes she just lays across the keyboard. Message received, Emma!

Pete - now I know what you meant. I deleted the duplicate post. I don't know how that happened.

Emma -- your mom or dad need to show you some pictures! One of them might become your next chew-toy!

You’re a lucky girl.

Emma's photos seem to show an increased loss of hair around the eyes--next vet appointment she needs to be checked for dermatitis.

She just had a thorough check-up, and checked out just fine. Her eyes look about the same from the early pics posted on the blog - kind of depends on the angle of the photo, I think. She's always had a light eyeliner effect. Thanks for your concern, though.

Hey Andi -- loss of hair around the eyes is often caused by a very common mite, more commonly found in some breeds than others (Dauchshunds is one) and is easily treated. Furthermore, most healthy adult dogs live happy lives containing the mite to just the eyes and muzzle.

However, we try to keep young puppies from being exposed to the mite until their immune systems further develop.

A simple scraping under a scope is how we test for the critter.
