when we arrived from the airport two nights ago, we noticed that the skin around koda’s right eye was red and a bit swollen. the next day, the swelling was getting bigger, so we decided to take her to the vet.
it turned out to be a minor infection and was treated with the usual antiseptic ointment. but since koda couldn’t take her paw off her eye, she ended up has to deal with her most enigmatic enemy: an e-collar.
every time we put the collar on, for the first half hour, koda can’t move. she just stand uncomfortably on one spot. she then starts to move by sitting down. then walking. laying down comes last. and she keeps bumping her collar all over the place: table, chairs, shelves, our legs…
aina feels bad that koda is in pain (both the physical from the swelling eye and the mental one from the e-collar). so she keeps trying to entertain the dog: patting and rubbing koda — sometimes, poking.
and trying to involve the dog in her afternoon swim.
koda, on the other hand, couldn’t help acting like a robot. moving awkwardly around and bumping into things. it’s cute to see that aina finally gives a loving attention to koda.
