I have had my eyes checked for years (I see fine, thank-you-very-much) and an 'opportunity' was offered to all working dogs from American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists to receive free eye exams. I was able to get an appointment at Animal Eye Consultants to have my eyes checked with Dr. Denise M. Lindley -- Lucky Me! Today was the day. My friend Birdie met me there as she was having her eyes checked too!
Perhaps you can tell how I felt about the visit by the photographs...
|On the way to the Doctor - Don't want to talk about it...|
|Okay - so here we are waiting...|
|Do you think it will hurt, I ask? Birdie tells me she doesn't want to talk about it either...|
|I was hoping they wouldn't call me in... - no such luck!|
|There's another door -- perhaps I should plan my escape...|
|Shh! - Shh - here comes the doctor and her assistant!|
|Didn't even give me a chance - her assistant began to hold me down... what is that thing?|
|Hey... not so close!|
|What is that bright light?|
|Looking good so far...|
|Other eye she says...|
|My eyes are in perfect shape -- that wasn't so bad ;o) |
Dr. Lindley Rocks -- WOOF WOOF!
She even let me pose with her after my exam!
|Thanks to the folks at Animal Eye Consultants for giving me and my friend Birdie a free exam! |
We are now able to continue our work as therapy dogs in the community.
