So, a few weeks ago, I met a nice couple at the dog park with a Chocolate Lab named Zoey who is one day younger than Monte. She and Monte played together a whole bunch, they're a great match in energy and size. I even have some video the wife e-mailed me that I need to go over and edit for audio. Ran into them again maybe a week later. Then another time out there, I ran into someone else with a slightly older lab-mix puppy and it turned out to be the parents of the husband. Then I ran into the wife again a couple of days ago.

Today while walking Monte past the fire station, she wanted to meet the firemen. The father of the husband turned out to be one of them. Also turns out, he lives at the other end of my street.

The world is weird.

Right now, I'm a little worried about the pooch. Her eyes are kind of puffy and she's sleeping pretty soundly. This happened after our walk and after I put her flea/tick stuff on her. I don't know exactly when it happened I just noticed it after she'd been sleeping for a while.

Naturally, I'm a little panicky about it but I googled and found that eye allergies are pretty common as is pink eye and it could be either of these. If it's still a problem in the morning, I'll take her to the vet. She had been rolling around on grass. I tried to keep her off some grass that had signs saying it recently had pesticide applied but she may have rolled on something before I caught her, I don't remember.

She doesn't seem to be in any distress, but also seems disinterested in any snacks I've offered her or even getting up. So I'm a little concerned.

I don't know if it was as hot up by you today as it was down my way, but high temps can make my dog more sleepy/tuckered out after a walk. And spring/summer allergies can affect dogs too. Hope your dog is alright !

I'm sure she's tired from playing with other dogs. She's only 5 months old and she plays pretty hard.

She also grows approximately 15lbs every hour. :P

No kidding. And she looks a lot better this morning. Although she may have vomited a little in her crate.

Freke has some allergies and occasionally gets that look, especially after a lot of time outdoors. Her exposure to other dogs does make the pink eye a possibility, but if she's looking better today it's probably just allergies (or the heat, as said above.

And a few years later, I ran into this couple again at the surprise baby shower for one of my co-workers. Small, small world.
