Pirate Squinty Eye

Last week, Matilda woke up looking like this.


I was rather concerned because when we came in from our walk, she was still giving me the pirate squinty eye.


We already had an appointment at the vet this morning to get her monthly Addison’s shot, so we headed for the vet in the hopes that maybe we could get a doctor to check out her eye.  She acted so miserable the whole 25 minute ride to the vet that she had me believing that something was terribly wrong.

When we got to the vet, she perked up a bit; barking to let everyone know that she was in the building. But it was what happened when we got to the examination room that still has me a bit dumbfounded.  As soon as the doctor walked in, she stopped squinting.  It was if she just wanted to see the doctor.  Didn’t squint one bit while the doctor was examining her.

$70 later, we got in the car to go home.  As soon as I started the car, I looked over at her and she looked back at me with the pirate squinty eye.

Crazy dog.
