I hate it when my babies are sick, I absolutely HATE it!

Muffin has her usual "welcome back to Florida" ear infection in both ears. She is miserable and it breaks my heart.

The inside of her ears are the brightest color red you can imagine. She is constantly shaking her head and doesn't stop.

I took her to the Vet's yesterday because I had no more ear drops for her in the Fridge. She is also on Benedryl. But so far, there is no relief for my little girl.

We've been cuddling with her as much as we possibly can inbetween everything going on here. Lily is keeping her distance because with all the shaking, Lily get's abused by the flying ears.

My poor (sweet) little girl.....

Mommy Kim

This is probably why she gets so sick. 40 degrees, seriously, this IS Florida!

    Best wishes Molly

  2. Muffin...bless your sweet heart are you allergic to something in FL? I hope and purr your ears quit itching soon it must be miserable. OH MY GOSH that last picture is amazing....Mom says it reminds her of pictures she has seen in National Geographic. Excellent!!
    hugs and itty bitty kitty kisses on your sore ears.

  5. Mollie had the bright red ear syndrome, I put cold cotton wool press on it, when the lump ( cos she's not small ) was sitting on my lap. We hope Muffin gets better soon..Big hugs. xx00xx

  6. Poo dear Muffin- she can alsays come play with us (and Lily too!) ope the infection clears up quickly!

  7. Oh Miss Muffin I sure hope it clears up real soon. I wish it was 40 here, but guess that won't be that warm in a while. Love that last photo.

  8. Hmm...maybe some more turkey noodle soup would help? I am sure Muffin wouldn't mind.

  9. I sure hope muffin gets to feeling better soon, i wonder if the cold compresses would help take some of the heat out? Your picture was beautiful.
    Have a great wednesday

  10. So sad about Muffin! Please keep us posted.

    That last pic was just beautiful. I think it's nice you are in Florida but I sure love my iced over bowl and am praying for snow.


  11. Awwww Muffin you are in our prayers. Get better quickly sweet thing. I have a little guy (pug mix) who is always sick from allergies...I tell him I'm going to have to make him the boy in the bubble because he gets everything! In fact we have a vet appt tomorrow...this time he has eye infections and ear infections :/ So we totally feel for you Muffin. Mama Kim that last shot of the sunrise is simply breathtaking!

  12. Oh Muffin, we're sorry you have to endure this. I hate ear infections and I am thankful that the pack hasn't experienced any. I would be devastated if they'd have to deal with something like this.

    I agree with others, that last picture is amazing.

    Huggies and Cheese,


  13. Poor Muffin! Freddy is a constant ear shaker even if there's nothing wrong. It's how he likes to wake up in the mornings, but Mommy's always wondering if it's another ear infection. Feel better soon!!

  14. We sure hope Muffin feels better soon. It is a little funny that Lily Belle has to stay away from her to avoid getting smacked in the head with her ears though.

  15. Poor Muffin, it must be miserable for her. We hope she is feeling better very soon!

  16. Poor Muffin (and you). we hope she gets better soon. It's supposed to be 39 deg here today.....but that's Celsius, so it translates to just over 102 F!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

    Love the sunrise photo.

  17. Heck dat was miserable just readin' what hers be goin' through. I do feel TERRIBLES fur her. I knows her feels like crud.
    Hopefully all her drugs will kick in so hers can get some relief of some sort anyways. Tells her I is thinkin' bouts hers and I send hugs to everybuddy...especially you Momma K, cuz you needs 'em...hehehehe.

    Dat is a most majestic lookin' foto!


  18. OUCH! Paws crossed for you, Muffin! Could you be allergic to your food? When I was having food allergies I got lots of ear infections that were hard to get rid of

  19. Poor baby. We have our feets crossed you will feel better

  20. Poor Muffin, sounds like she must be allergic to something there? Some plant outside, a different kind of grass, maybe the water? Just searching for something. We hope she is better soon.

  21. Sorry to hear about your ears Muffin - paws crossed here that the infection clears up soon - woofs and licks from Magic xx

  22. Hey Lily Belle
    How is Muffin feeling?
    Hugs madi your BFFF

  23. I am so sorry to hear little Muffin has an ear infection. Hope she is feeling much better. We have extreme temp changes where I live so mom cleans my ears once a week with a 50/50 solution of apple cider vinegar and water. It works real well in humid climates. Enjoyed your Thanksgiving pics. My grandma is 84 so my mom understands some of the events that you and your mom have going on at home. Always so nice to hear from you girls. Thanks for the update about the blog . Love you, your admiring Herbie

  24. Here's how to change your header.
    Go to layout in Blogger. It'll show you where everything on your blog goes, widgets, where you post, pages, ect. Near the top it should say the name of you blog and then header (example: mine says Dachshund Nola (header)). Click on the edit button, it'll bring up your header. Click "remove image", then click either Choose File to get a new pic from your computer or paste an image from a URL. Click save then click save arrangement at the top. Hope this helps!

    Guess what? I'm 100% fine! No knee issues at all! Thank dog

  25. Awww, no! We are so saddened to hear about that nasty ear infection. Oskar shares your pain, Sweetie.
    Feel better soon!

  26. BOL it IS on steroids! Sorry, I should have mentioned this. Okay, so go the the menu where you changed the header, and remove the image. In the pop up screen it should have a little box that says "shrink to fit (image will be shrunk to 940 pixels wide)". Click that so that a little check mark appears on that box. Then re choose your image and click save changes and save arrangement. Should fix everything! That's an adorable pic!

    He felt around on my knee and compared it to the other one, said the knee cap was in place and he couldn't move it so I do not have luxating patella (yay!!!). He said it's just the unique way I run. Also said I have serious muscle tone, BOL!
    Love ya,

  27. Yikes - that's not a very nice welcome from FL Muffin. Sure hope your ears get all better real soon!
    What a gorgeous sunrise you saw! Wow!

    Waggin at ya,

  28. Beautiful sunrise shot. Hope Muffin's ears are all better by now. Momma understands though because she's been dealing with my medical issues lately. I'm not sick but I had a tiny lump removed from my toe, then after the stitches came out, I messed with the incision and opened it back up, then had to get stitched back up again. So momma has been hovering around me and checking my stitches every 15 minutes and making me wear the cone and worrying about me. I think it's really hard on her when something is wrong with me. I've just been sleeping a lot because I'm on "restricted activity". I just can't wait to get these stitches removed and get out romping again!

    your pal,


Lily Belle & Muffin would love to hear from you!
