Dog of the Day: Sampson the Slightly Injured English Bulldog Puppy

I ran into Sampson while he was out having a great time running around and smooching people. He apparently does that a lot, being 5 months old and all, and at doggie day care he ran around and ran into things so hard that he injured his eye. His vet originally thought it was just an infection (and gave his mom some antibiotic ointment) but apparently it’s actually cherry-eye so mom’s going to have it treated. Fortunately, it looks way worse than it actually is, and the prognosis is excellent. (Less than 5% chance of any complications, and even if there are any they’ll probably be easy to treat too.)

I’d like to take this opportunity to give thanks for modern medical care, both for our animals and for ourselves. If anyone has relevant stories, feel free to speak up in the comments.

Oh, and by the way, Sampson has his own Instagram page. You should check it out, it’s awesome. And also, he reminds me of a certain tote bag (and the associated tee shirts at the bottom of the page.)

Don’t look at the eye, look at the little ear spots.

They really are goofy-shaped beasties, aren’t they?

    Hi Adam,

    Thanks for saying hi to our pup! He is already looking much better and has gotten used to life with a cone for the time being.
