Tip 58 – Eye cleaning – cats and dogs

It’s normal to have some dirt buildup in the corners of your cat’s or dog’s eyes. It is the body’s natural defense to gather all dust particles that the eye comes in contact with and push them toward the corners …

O-D-I-E, four letters that will never be the same again to this family.  Odie loved the water and playing at the lake with his girl, my daughter Cassie, who was born nine months after him.  He always had a ball to play with in his mouth like the little Everready bunny, Everready Odie to play catch.  We actually always invisioned him dying at the lake chasing a stick in the water because he would play that game until he couldn't hardly move anymore and come back barking begging to play more.  He had a beautiful smile and used it often with family members.  He would carry his food bowl around the yard when he wanted you to know he was hungry and look at you with those big brown eyes that were irresistable.  He was an outdoors dog and loved running free!!  We still have his mom with us and she misses him as much as we do, she always goes out to the end of the fence and barks and howls calling him to come home.  Odie lived a long and happy life with his family and we feel very privileged to have known such love from an exceptional animal.  The hole he left in my heart will never heal, he was my friend and companion for 13 years that I nursed through parvo as he nursed me through my troubles and illnesses.  We lay together on our livingroom floor as he had his fatal strokes, him snuggling close to me and me talking and soothing him to his final rest.  I look for him every day at the gate when I come home expecting to see his wagging tail and grinning face.  We hope and dream of a safe, beautiful, lake for Odie to spend eternity in waiting for us to join him again.
