Salinger's Pity Party

(Cue violin music....)
Mom has informed me that I am a "Hot Mess" right now....
Ugh...look away....I'm HIDEOUS!

I was at the vet on Wednesday for an allergy shot and for this yucky ear infection I have in my right ear ( can SEE how red and pathetic it is!). THEN...over the weekend, my eyes turned red and were extra boogery. NOW I have a sinus infection with conjunctivitis! Dr. Graves said I look like I'm HUNGOVER!

Our kitchen counter looks like the warehouse for 1-800-PET-MEDS and mom says that trying to get all these drops in me is like trying to give a cat a perm.
Ugh...I wish I felt as good as THIS guy does!!!

SO...let the Pity Party begin! I'm going to spend all day moping and looking pathetic here in Daddy's chair in case anyone is looking for me.

Awwww...what a cutie. Sorry you're feeling blue, Salinger. But hopefully you'll be on the mend, asap!

Harry Pugalicious said...

Sorry, Salinger! I's hoping you feel better soon. (But milk it for as long as you cans!)

Pearl said...

Sal, you really do look pretty pathetic! Those red ears and those eyes!!
I HATE eye drops. Momma pretty much has to put me in a choke hold to get them in, and I am a master at blinking RIGHT before they hit the eye. Try it!
Hope you feel better, munchkin!

Aw, poor Salinger! I hope you feel better soon!! You still look adorable.

Salinger, give it up. Obviously after you receved your first paycheck you hit the party circuit hard. Too many doggie treats and a few brewskis will do that to a dog. Mom thought the "extra boogger-y" eye comment was especially dramatic..... Hope you are on the mend soon. Good cover story though - I'll have to remember that one.

Oh Salinger..poor baby. Something is fishy, as momma would say. My Lily has all those things going on too. She had a boogy in her eye the size of a kibble. Yuk

Sal I wonder if this is payback from that monkey you repossessed?

Anonymous said...

Aww you poor guy. We went through somthing similar with our cat, two eye infections and pnumonia. Lots of cuddles for you!! Feel better soon.

Rosie said...

S-Dog - Look on the bright side at least you don't have to wear one of those cones. Yet - well hopefully never if your a good boy and take your meds and don't lick or rub or anything. right?? If they give you the cone - it is NOT my fault!!

Rachel said...

awwww, poor Salinger! I am also home sick today. The doctor at patient first said it's an "undetermined highly contagious viral infection"!! So I'm right there with ya buddy. Can't go back to work until they figure out what it is - so lots of time to join the pity party.

Stubby said...

Salinger dude - you are a hot mess! I can't believe your mom posted those pictures of you because you should stay away from the camera.

I am having ear issues too but I refuse to go the doctor because I don't want any medicine.

I hope you feel better soon!

Stubby xoxo

Neas Nuttiness said...

Oh Salinger...I'm so sorry that you're feeling sooooo bad. Allergies are NO fun. And your poor ear. George and Gracie send healing licks and bow wows!

Lilo, The Great Rock Eater said...

Poor Sal! I'm sorry you're not feeling well. At least if you were hungover, you would have fun last night!! Hope you feel better soon. Tell your momma to make you some chicken soup. That's supposed to make peoples feel better.

Feel better soon!!


dw said...

Salinger, I'm sorry you're having all these problems: ears, eyes, oh my! But I agree, milk it for all it's worth! There has to be some practical advantage to this, right? ;-)

Oakley and Swisher said...

Oh no buddy we are sorry to hear that you aren't doing well. Make sure you get some chicken noodle soup and lots of love from your humans. We hope you feel better soon.

Lots of Licks--

Aw, Sal. Being sick sucks. Hope you feel better real quick, but in the meanwhile look as pathetic as you can to score extra snacks and snuggles!
