Jack Doing Better  
For my LJ Peeps (and some additional info for my FB Friends) - Jack's surgery went fine this morning. He is out of recovery and in the boarding area of the Vet's until Monday when we can pick him up. He is reported to be doing well and can't wait to come home, though he will have to wear the Cone Of Shame Healing for a while.

It turned out not to be a poke in the eye, it was (as best I could get over a balky cell connection) something to do with either extra layer or extra skin around his third eyelid that got ulcerated and infected, leading to a creeping infection that worked its way into his cornea. The treatment was essentially the same as previously - clean up the infection, pack the area with antibiotics, and nip the third eyelid closed for protection.

Hearing he is OK took a great load off and we can't wait to pick him up Monday.

Yay, puppy! (Well, big puppy... O:> ) Here's hoping that the healing goes quickly.

Great news Bill!!! Hope he recovers soon and is back to normal. Is Jack the same dog who was singing along with Dave and I when we stayed at your previous place in Atlanta?
