Yeah, laineylj's eye is going to be removed =/
(in case you missed the back story... Part 1 and Part 2)
The doctor really felt bad, you could just tell. He didn't really want to recommend the eye removal, I could sense him being apprehensive...soon as I suggested that I thought that would be the best route for all involved he instantly jumped in and said that is what he wanted to do. I guess it is kind of hard to tell someone their family pet needs to have their eye removed.
She still seems to be feeling as good as one can feel with an eye in that condition, but you can tell she is annoyed to no end. She's also having some hard time adjusting. Walking into things, constantly pawing on that side, etc...
What I hate is that she had to go through the first round of surgery and now she has to have it removed.
Not to mention the bill for this, they took good care of us for the first round but I don't know how today's surgery is going to hit the wallet.
So... I'm not going to ask or beg, but if anyone would like to donate...

Any help would be appreciated because this honestly could not have hit at a worse time. My wife is taking it very hard, Lainey has always been our baby girl...but she is REALLY Amy's little girl. Amy is just kind of blaming her self, and like I told her...there wasn't much of anything we could do. Dogs play, even if we would have stopped them from playing and pawing, odds are by the time we stopped it, well it was already too late. We took her to the vet quickly and we watched it all weekend.
By the time the damage was done it was already too late, nothing anyone could have done. We're still not sure if the other dogs had anything to do with it, she could have run into something. If you remember years ago in Louisiana she cut herself real bad, the other dogs had nothing to do with it.
We call the vet back this afternoon, didn't think to ask if she would stay overnight or not.
I'll update when I know more, and hey maybe she can be a pirate for Halloween now!

i remember that huge slice taken out of her!!

Poor sweet Lainey :(

Cute about the pirate comment. I have seen so many Bostons with one eye... I guess they are silly and hit there eyes on everything. I don't think they even notice!! She will be ok!

I'm sorry Lainey and all of y'all are having to go through this.

For what it's worth, our babies are so very resilient. My babydog Daisy's mama was hit by a car (bastard driver didn't even stop), and she survived but was blinded in both eyes, with one eye so damaged it had to be removed.

She recovered completely and, even though totally blind, was able to get around well and even had another litter of puppies she took great care of.

I'll be thinking of y'all.

I donated what was in my paypal account. It wasn't much but it's something. Hope the pup feels better soon.

You rock, thanks a million.
I talked to the vet a bit earlier, they are keeping her overnight but said she came out rather well and he thinks all will be fine.

Thanks for the words. I always kind of worried about the eyes but never thought anything would actually happen

I remember Lainey's was one of the first comments we got when Lainie and I first joined the community. I donated most of what I had in my paypal account. It's not much, but I wanted to tell you guys best wishes from me and the Lainie from Winnsboro, Louisiana.

my 83 pound alaskan malamute is completely blind (she has juvenile cataracts.) she has adjusted very well- the best thing is to make sure not to move furniture around in the house too frequently because they will learn where everything is over time..

we still go out on walks, hikes and we still go swimming and soon i hope to get her in a canoe! lol. i always recently got a pair of rollerblades and harness and have been training her how to cart me behind her on our outings.

I'm just so sorry this happened to her
she will adjust over time, don't worry about that part.
sending you and your hugs
