I'm sooo In salted

Well, it's back to weality  I guess.
Aftew all the wondewful magic of visitows  and pawtying the gwim evewyday has wetuwned.
I still have some pictoowes to show you of Stella and i having a bootiful last walk togethew befowe she had to go home to Goobewstan, but fiwst I have to show you this

now if you'we squeemish, pleez don't look  
it's pwetty yucky.

Mommi totally fweeked out yestewday..I  woke up wif a booboo eye and she dwagged me to the dogtow wight away
I had blood all ovew my face which she wiped away wif a stewile gauzey thing
it totally wuined my eye linew
they wewe nice enough to see me wight away..luckily, they awe only a seven minute walk fwom my house
Pleez look at the wall above me, do you notice something familiaw???
yep, it's my angel sissie and bwuffuws Nikki,Chawlie and Nowa  , and Petey on the uppew left.

the nice nuwse lady put us in an examination woom and weighed me 
( I won't tell you how much I weigh....aftew all, I'm a giwl)
and I checked things out while we waited fow the dogtow
I was a vewy good giwl, this stuff doesn't scawe me, but the lady held me so I  would be vewy still fow my eye exam
The dogtow put all sowts of icky liquids in my eye and looked wif a weally bwight light
I'm sposed to put  some salve in my eyes fow ten days, twice a day, so that the infection goes away and the cyst thingy doesn't come back
He said, I don't have any ulcewation on my cownea ow anything.  
That's the good pawt
Hewe's the in salting pawt:  He says I have a chwonic pwoblem wif my eye lidses and most pwobably need an "eye Lift"

Oh, Asta! I do not blames you for being in salted! You're like the opposite of old and saggy. You're young and...um...well, NOT saggy! Hmph! Cosmetic surgery indeed!

Now, I am very much sorry abouts your eye ouchie, though. My Brudder Ranger had one of those on his eye once and they had to poke at it with a needle. Did they do that to you?

I hopes you feel much better lickety split, okay?

Asta!! Not old and baggy at all! The nerve!

You have beeeoooutiful almond shaped brown eyes!

JD and Max said...

Asta, pretty Asta - we think the doctor person was simply so envious of how gorgeous your eyes are that he simply didn't know how to deal with it! You are youthful and beautiful and are certainly NOT baggy (and we should know - our FH has SUITCASES under her eyes, he he he! Ooh, quick, she's coming.....!)

No way, Asta. You are just beautiful.

So sorry to hear about your eye problem. Thunder is just getting better from his irritated eye too. If you haven't had a history of this problem, maybe you need to get a second opinion before you have any cosmetic surgery. Feel better, pal.

omd asta--he didn't~!! BAGGY? OLD? EYE LIFT?? OMD--the nerve of that evil mr. doctor!! you most definitely do not need it for cosmetic reasons dahling, but maybe he meant for medical reasons--still, he should of used a different term. we girls are sensitive~!!!!


Daisy said...

Oh Asta, I am very sorry you got a hurty eye! I hope you feel much better soon. Do not worry, you still look like a young pup!

Angel Ginger Jasper said...

Oh no Asta you dont need anything like that you are beautiful.. Sorry you have a hurty and hope it wil be beter soon.. Hugs GJ xx

Unknown said...

Oh Asta - I don't know what that vet is talking about - he obviously needs some help with his eyes himself!!! I think you have beautiful eyes and beautiful everything else and definitely don't need cosmetic anything!! Gosh - if he's commenting on you - what about ME?? My whole face is a big drooping mess! :-)

OMD girl, you do NOT need an eye lift!! Our mama says she needs one, but she is like a gazillion years old. We are so glad that it was just a cyst and not anything any worse. Sorry you got your face a bloody, but better than a gigantic thing on your eye!!
We love you and send get well wishes...here goes the Power of the Paw again.

ps-that vet's office is cool with the photos of your loved ones and Petey!

Jans Funny Farm said...

Well, the nerve of that man! Surely he must know how important a girl's reputation for non-surgical beauty is.We think you look fine as you are. You don't need an eye lift for beauty. But if it's for health reasons, you might want to consider his advice. You evidently gave your mom quite a scare.


Agatha and Archie said...

Hoooo boy you should have warned me.. he fainted big time.. knocked his head on the side of the table and we had to use smelling salts... when he came to he was moaning DONT LET ME SEE IT AGAIN... poor you.. I hope it didn't hurt.... WHAT DO YOU MEAN AN EYE LIFT????( listen if this is the case I know a great plastic surgeon...) BUT FORGET ABOUT IT you are too young.. Hmmmppphhh Love Aggie and ArchL

Molly the Airedale said...

You are definitely not old and baggy, Asta! How dare he suggest such a thing! The medicine will work and you'll be back to your gorgeous self - we're sure of it!

Love ya lots

Lenny's.And Axel's. Sheese do we all need one then? Doesn't he know we are perfect and square as we are? Silly dog tor. Even if he does have cool photos.

The Airechicks said...

OMDog you need a second opinion - is he your regular doc???

You look MARVELOUS !!!!

Glad just some medicine and you'll be right as rain!!


doyle and mollie said...

aw asta what a scare you must have given your momma, don't be insulted that doctor obviously has no idea that you are the queen of style and the old bag or two is quite becoming... you'll be pawfect in no time and if the eyelift is necessary we know you are brave enough to take that option after all it is medical advice
and not vanity.... loves and licks

Wyatt said...

Sounds a little Hollywood...is that where that doctor is from??
Asta, you don't look a day over 1!
Hope the medicine makes it feel better.

D.K. Wall said...

Best wishes for a quick recovery. We remember having to give Rusty eye drops for a couple of weeks. That was a most traumatic experience for us all - grins.

Mack said...

The nerve! He absolutely does not know what he is barking about! I would get a second opinion - he is obviously a quack!!
Girl, you look fab-u-lous as ever!

Gus said...

You are not old and saggy. You are bootiful.


Lacy said...

0000 asta, u not old and saggy..the meds will make ur booboo better...me loves u..

Sally Ann and Andy said...

Oh no Asta, I hope you are feeling better. I didn't let Andy read this post, as I was afraid that it would be to scary for him. You are to young for an eye lift. Feel better, Sally Ann

Bocci said...

Asta-you old and baggy? Never! You're a spring chicken! However, Parental Unit says she could use an eye lift...maybe she could have my doctor do it?

Hope your eye feels better soon!

Lorenza said...

Oh-noes! I hope it is not painful!
I am sure you will be like new in no time!
Eye lift?? Baggy eyes??
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh I am so jelly....you will have E TURN ALLEY young bootiful eyes and I will look old and ancient...

Um...I hate to say this Asta, but I'm thinkin' you shouldn't wear any eye makeup till that gets better...

I know...one never feels dressed without liner....

I suggest usin' a brighter shade lippy stick...maybe instead of your usual Midnight Charcoal, you could go to a Twilight Shimmer....

And brighten up your nosecara a bit too...

Always helpful....

Golden Samantha said...

Absolutely nonono!!! Total Insultation! The horror! But believe it or not, I had to visit the doc today for an eye problem - I have conjunctivitis, but luckily, it's not contagious in doggehs. Still, Mum has to put eye gunk in my eyeball 2X a day, so I feel your pain dear one.

Sally said...

Oh no! Poor Asta! How dare the doctor suggest you have droopy eyes - we think you are perfect in every way! But we are a little worried - is there something happening in the dog world involving eyes? Paddy is off to the eye doctor today too! Hope he doesn't get told anything nasty! Those Doctors, Who do they think they are are?
Lots of licks
Sally and Paddy

Noah the Airedale said...

Oh my goodness Asta. An eye lift..... How insulting. Your a beautiful young wire. He must be mistaken.

Nooo!!! You are bootyfull! Do not let them give you that Botox!

Dexter said...

Miss Asta,
My Grandpa Angus used to get those things too and one time he even needed stitches, but it did not bother him much and he got all better. I sure hope you do not need to eye lift. Sheesh. You are just a baby.

You take care and be good about your medicine.


Katie said...

hi there - sorry that i'm going to be "serious" and talk "human" - our fox terrier had eye problems in his old age - apparently WFT suffer from eyelashes that irritate their eyes (though i think it happens in old age as they lose fat behind their eyes and their eyes sink and their eyelids roll inwards.., - so maybe that's not the problem here?) - anyway, thought i'd share our experiences - loki had a few "eyelifts" - pretty minor procedure that he handled very well even though he was 15, however his lashes kept growing back so it didn't work - in the end we went with contact lenses which turned out to be ideal - they stay in "permanently" (as long as your dog tolerates them - he did for months) and protect the eye - and they were WAY cheaper than all the medical procedures... good luck! we miss our WFT more than anything....


Princess Patches said...

Of course you aren't old and saggy, Asta! (and neither is your mommi)! We have heard stories of somedoggies who have a problem with their eye lashes growing inward and causing eye problems. We hope yours goes away really, really, really, really quick! Feel better, Sweetiepie!

Whatevers ya'll do, we gots your back and stand by ya no matter what. But I'm just hoping dis is a in da future.

Huskee and Hershey said...

Oh Asta, you scared us half to death reading about the blood all over your face! Your poor dear mom must have had a panic attack too...

Glad it's nothing too serious now that you've seen the vet.. Hmm.. eye lift? You gotta be kidding me... why would a sweet, gorgeous girl like you need an eye lift?? Eye lifts are more suited for my mom. I am sending my mom over to your vet...

Koobuss said...

Oh no! Kousin Asta, whatever happened to you!
You poor thing. (Boy, that looks sore.) Glad that you were able to get it fixed and that you are feeling better.

As for the surgery, yes, you are bootiful all by yourself. But just think how much more bootifuler you will be when you have your eyes done! You'll be the best looking terrier girl in NYC!!

Love and Extra Koobuss Kisses for Everybody,

Koobuss said...

pee ess Kousin Asta, I didn't mean that you were't the best looking terrier girl in NYC already. Of course you are. An eye tuck will only keep you that way forever!

Hollie and Janie said...

I am so sorry to see that boo boo on you lovely eye! I hope that it heals super fast!! How dare that vet suggest that you "need work"! You have the fur of a pup! and I'd kill for that nose! :)
Love you!

Luna "The Scruffy Yacht Dog" said...

Dear Asta,

I hope your eye booboo heals soon. You don't need an eye lift. You are beautiful just the way you are. Maybe your Mommi can try putting some cucumbers over your eyes like those girls in the ladies magazines. I hope you feel better soon.

Worry not, you are still a pup in our eyes and eye lift is out of the question. Waaaaah

Oh Asta, first off I thought you got some salt water in your beautiful eyes while you were swimming.
Tsk! Tsk!
Toi? Old and baggy?
It won't happen in our hearts in a million years!
You need no plastic surgery Asta, maybe only one piece of Coco Chanel necklace to adore that long gorgous neck of yours!

Inky and Molly said...

Oh honey, we don't people poking you in the eyes. We hope you'll be ok, with or without surgery. Lots of love..
