Adoptable Pittie of the Week: Baci Update

26 Nov

Our little Baci has been busy recovering from her cherry eye correction surgeries, and it’s been taking a little bit longer than we’d hoped. We’ve had to make quite a few unplanned trips to the vet to make sure everything was going the way it should. This past weekend, we finally saw an ophthalmologist to get some concrete info about her eyes.

“I think my eyes look good, don’t you?”

Baci was so well behaved at the vet waiting for her appointment time to come. She sat patiently for treats and affection, and didn’t make a single sound. But she made it pretty clear she didn’t wait to be there:

Baci’s Stink Eye

So the good news is that her eyes are basically doing what they’re supposed to be doing, it’s just taking a bit longer than expected. Her left eye looks great, is behaving normally, and had a normal reaction to the surgery.

Baci’s Left Eye

Her right eye, however, had some minor complications. Apart from some general swelling and irritation, she has also developed small, treatable ulcer on that eye.

Baci’s Right Eye

See the difference? But despite the annoying eye issues, and the repeated trips to the vet, Baci is as happy and goofy as ever. She loves being with people, and is absolutely dying to play with other dogs. We’ve discovered she knows lots of different commands like, “sit,” “down,” “paw,” “down,” stay,” and more.

But after her trip to the vet, she got a treat to the an impromptu visit to foster dad at work at the Majestic Theater on Broadway. She sat and waited so patiently until he was done working, and got lots of visits from actors and crew members from the different Broadway shows. What a lucky girl!

    Seems like a sweet, beautiful girl who is also an excellent patient. Hope her eye problems resolve soon, and she’s someone beloved famil member before the year is out..

    […] As we shared yesterday, Baci‘s recovery has been taking a little bit longer than expected. We’ve been back and forth with her to the vet approximately, well, 7 times. And that’s not even including her initial boarding there while she was being treated for kennel cough! So as you can imagine, we’ve racked up quite a bill on this little girl. It’s all worth it though, and when she finds her forever home, it will be even more so! […]
