Phoebe is our sweet but bossy female Yorkie. She rules the roost around here and tells us what to do and when to do it. If we don't do as she wants, she will not so gently and very loudly remind you until you see things her way. ;)
Over the years, we have battled with weight issues, skin issues, and allergy issues. She had an issue with her adrenal glands that not only made her hungry *all the time* (which made her overweight too) but her skin was itchy and she would have terrible skin rashes that I had the worst time trying to keep under control.
So, every 25 days for the rest of her life, she will get an injection to keep her "up". Her skin is 98% better and her appetite is no where near as ravenous.
Things were cruising along nicely for about 3 weeks when the other night when we were getting ready to go to sleep, her eyes looked "funny" to me. All I could think of was the look drug addicts get when they are way past high and ready to pass out. Her eyes were half closed and half rolling back into her head. I rationalized that maybe she was just overtired and trying to go to sleep and I was bugging her. But then, about 10 minutes later, she got sick.
Again, panic set in. I jumped out of bed and rushed her to the emergency vet.
Once we got there she was alert and acting fine (of course!) but would still do that crazy thing with her eyes.
