I am stressed because I want to go out tonight, but I am worried about how she will do if I should stay away for the entire night. She is very dependent and after discussing this dog care assignment with many people, I am more aware that she is very old. The consensus is maybe sixteen or older. She is definitely blind in one eye and has had hip surgery. I think she is also missing her Master.
We have had a good day. We walked, she ate well, and I devised a plan to not have to scrub away at her eyes. I squirted her with a hose. I manage to get her body very wet then gave her a few squirts in her face. She DID not like this one bit, but I could then dry her off and clean her eyes. She looked beautiful!!
I did not stay away all night and am grateful because I did not leave a light on for her. She was her usual happy greeting self. We played, I wrote another post and felt much less neurotic.
