Sad Update :(  
Ozzy's appointment was this morning. I've been sad all day. The ulcer has gotten worse. The vet explained it as basically having a crater in his eye. :( There's this decently big indentation, and we had seen it, but we thought that it was that film we had seen starting to come off. :(

She said hope isn't gone, and that he has a better chance of keeping his eye if he goes and sees a specialist. So, she's given us a referral to the doggie ophthalmologist. This is gonna be expensive, but we're going to try to save his eye for him. We'll do what we can, anyway.

I already made my Etsy shop selling dog treats to help us pay for the cost. In 2 weeks, I'll buy the supplies to make dog collars and other stuff. But for now I'm hoping some of the treats sell so that way we can get him the first visit. Anyway, just thought I'd let you all know. Thanks for keeping Ozzy in your thoughts/prayers! <3 I really appreciate it!

ETA: Since it was asked for, this is my Etsy store. I really don't expect anything out of you guys though, just so you know. If you want to help, that's awesome. If you can't/don't want to -- NO HARD FEELINGS! I promise. :) Much love to you and your Bostons!
I am feeling: sadsad

I wish there were something I could do to help! I would donate if I could afford to at this point. (I literally have no money right now.)

You will remain in my thoughts and prayers. I've asked my family to pray for Ozzy, too.

Awww, it's ok! Trust me, I totally get the money thing -- which is why I'm trying to raise some money. ;)

Thanks so much for keeping him in your thoughts and prayers. :) That's good enough for me! If worse comes to worse, Ozzy will still be my baby boy. :-p

I'm sorry to hear that. Those ulcers really are something. Do please go to the specialist as soon as you can. That's what ultimately saved Bella's eye. Please give us the link to your Etsy store, OK?

I'm really rooting for you guys!

I'm totally bummed! There is no way we can (financially) get him in until at least the 19th, at the very earliest unless I can raise some of the money, in the meantime. But either way, even if worse comes to worse, I'll still have my boy and he'll still have more love than his little body can handle.

Thanks so much for your support! :) I REALLY appreciate it!

We still will send good thoughts!!!!

I know. I'm totally bummed. Poor guy. :( He's still just as loved as ever though. That's what really matters, am I right?

Thank you! It's very appreciated. :)

my heart started racing when i read the title of this post... poor Ozzy baby! I really hope his eye is going to be ok.

I love your etsy shop. "eye love Ozzy" is so cute...

My heart started racing when the vet got that "look" on her face. I'm pretty sure I turned white. But I'm going to remain optimistic and hope for the best!

The worst that can possibly happen is I'll have a goofy, amazing, awesome, fantastic, extremely loved dog...that is blind. And that's the worst. So I'm at least thankful that the worst-case scenario isn't...the worst thing I can imagine.

And thank you! I wanted some really catchy...although my attempts at catchy usually turn into something cheesy...but if I'm not the only one who thinks it's cute, then I'm happy. <3

it's totally cute! Not cheeeeeezy at all!

i saw a boston on flickr that had lost both her eyes. She still played ball like a maniac and seems very happy! so if it comes to that, which i pray it doesn't... it will all be ok!

Awww, well that's good! Ozzy has been getting into playing again...so I think he's getting used to not seeing (or just seeing shadows) now. I just want his vision back for him! But if it does have to happen, at least we adopted him before this all happened, so he had a chance to see and get to know the layout of our house and our general routine and stuff. It'll make that adjustment a little easier for him, if need be.
