Well Simon is getting along pretty well here. But over the weekend he started squinting his eye and it was a bit runny. We tried washing it and putting warm cloths on it...but still yucky. Today the vet said he had a bit of conjunctivitis, and said it looked like his eyelashes were a little turned in.

I hope that is only due to being a bit swollen, but we will keep close watch on it. He is getting eye drops in both eyes twice daily. Tonight he looked great, but we will keep on. I think he got dirt in his eye, he has been bad or good at digging up the dog lot. :)

I spent hours tonight looking up other dog pictures, here and googling...to find some one that looks like him. I found several Golden Retriever/Yellow Lab mixes that do look like him. See them, if you like, here:

If you have any other suggestions of what kind of mix he is, I would like to hear them.

Take care,
Diane

To me, Simon looks like he might have some husky in him!

I never thought he looked like a Husky mix, 'cept when he smiles big and gets squinty eyes. :)

Thanks for your post.

Deb,

The more I see Simon, the more I think you are right about being part husky. I found some pictures of husky/lab mixes that could be Simon's twin.

I added them to my "collage" on his page: http://curdfiles2.myhandylinks.com/Simon/Golden_Lab_mix.html

Good eye....
Diane
