Hello Lacy

Meet Lacy, yeah for some reason my house has a been a dog magnet lately. Something I can't quite figure out. I mean do I just scream "Dog" when people see me?

Actually its more people screaming "DOG" at me, verses the other way around.

But anyway some friends at our church asked me to baby sit Lacy for the weekend. She is about 5 years old, and is a retired breeder. After Zipper my dogs were a little unsure of this new intruder, but she's soon proven herself to be extremely different. She much prefers to rest on top of the couch and survey the other dogs from that position.

She'd much prefer to sit your lap then run around the yard. So she's been a good little house guest thus far. But I'll still be glad when I can go back to my three dog household. Who knew caring for three dogs was so much easier. :))

PS: Does anyone know of any type of solution to help neutralize those dark patches on her eyes? Her owners have been wondering what will work!?

{No he's not about to hit her with the stick, he just didn't expect her to jump in his lap.]
{Lap or Play....Lap wins! No matter how small :)}

She is a very cute puppy!

I found this online:

I don't know if it's the same problem or not. I think I would ask the vet before I started using any type of cream or solution.

Tear stain remover should work on those stains. You can usually find it at pet stores. Not sure about the stains around her mouth from eating.

don't waste money on the tear stain removers in the stores, they RARELY work. With all my grooming clients & my own white Poodle, we use Angels Eyes, best stuff I've found for it.

They can put a small amount of apple cider vinegar in her drinking water and that will neutralize that bacteria that causes those stains. If Kira's were worse I'd do it but her little ones don't bother me. Those are kind of severe, they may look into putting her onto a grain-free diet if she's not already. The little poodle I know who had horrible stains got a lot better on a grain-free diet. There's also comercially available additives (to water) for tear stains. It's at our local pet store so it should be widely available.

I have heard about the Apple Cider Vinegar in the water before. It is actually very good for dogs. Just start with a drop or two and then increase it every day until it is about 1/2 teasp. per cup of water.

There are wipes you can get at Petsmart, but you have to use them over a long period of time to see real results, from what I understand.

She's very sweet! It's nice to have some doggy company once in a while... Unless you're a magnet. :)

Most of my customers with LWDs have had great success with Angels' Eyes. I would caution those using Apple Cider Vinegar as a supplement because using too much of it can actually burn their throat.

She seems like a great house guest to have!

Don't forget, we moved to http://dogisgodinreverse.com/
