Dog: Max Hematoma

Uh-Oh! Here we go again! Another hematoma and more bleeding from the eye. I thought it was the cancer moving again. It went down after a few days and I realized what was going on the next day.

I figured it out! Yes, the cancer is moving in that direction but it is not what is causing the hematoma. He is hitting his face on the underside of the counter when I am prepping his food. He is behind me but I noticed he didn't it again and remembered seeing him do prior to this episode.  I have since moved farther away from the counter when feeding.

Dog: Max Christmas 2016

Merry Christmas from Max. He doesn't fit in this chair and shouldn't be on it or the Christmas quilt but I look the other way.

Hike: Rock Canyon

 My first ever winter hike. It was a beautiful day in the low 40's. I dressed in layers with a light jacket, wool socks and boots with rubber. I got a little warm and my feet stayed dry and cozy. Just my ears and cheeks got cold.

This was at Bridge 4. We found a friend so we decided to get a pic. Mick did very well. I kept a close eye on his feet and removed snowballs from between his pads twice. Boots are on the list.

We made it to our goal. Bridge 5 is my favorite because of the pines that stand behind it. I could have kept going but didn't want to risk it and chance having to carry Mick out. We met several other dogs today too and that was fun. 

Some of the beauty I took in. Super frosted trees below with clear mountains above.

Dog: Max Misc. Pics

Here's a pic of nose and eye going at the same time. These days his eye drips more than his nose. It is messy but we deal with it. Lots of stuff is covered with blankets and it washes out.

It's hard to see some of the distortion in most pics because he's black and most of my decor is black to hide the hair. Here's an angle where you can see that his other eye looks like it sticks out farther. It is my believe that the mass has moved into the space where he had a very large molar removed before this all started.

He sleeps in some really interesting positions and moves from couch (or other soft item) to floor.
