Today we went to the University of Illinois
Veterinary Teaching Hospital to take part in research ...
We had our eyes checked for Pigmentary Keratitis!
Dr. Amber Labelle told us that we are rare!
Approximately 88% of the pugs she has tested
are affected by this eye disease.
Liberty's eyes are the best.
Zoe's and Webster's eyes are about the same.
And Peyton's eyes could be affected at a later time
but right now they are still good.
She suggested that Peyton have his eyes checked in a year
to stay on top of this and hopefully avoid future problems.
Mom and Dad were really happy!!!!
Mama forgot her camera so we didn't get any pictures.
Dr. Labelle was wonderful ... she gave us treats!
If you are going to the Milwaukee Pug Fest next month
you can take part in this awesome research.
Dr. Labelle is going to be there.

You can still get signed up. It's FREE!!!
Tomorrow is Earth Day!
We're going to plant our bleeding heart that
mama bought to plant in Payton's memory.
We also got some red geraniums for the
deck ... in memory of Yoda!
Until then .... Zoe, Peyton, Webster & Liberty
