Funny, when you addreas the "real" issue with a dog, the change is miraculous.
Our incoming foster, an owner surrender because of separation anxiety and "overall temperament" problems.
He had an injured eye as well. When our vet examined the eye, the pressure was 50+. Normal is 20. Sadly, the eye had to be removed.
Since then, no anxiety and this dog only wants to cuddle.
The eye had to be "pure agony" according to the vet.
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours faithful and true~ to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. ~unknown
