That's right folks...I've got mange. As you know my orbs have been broken for about a week, in fact we enjoyed reading every one's thoughts and suggestions (and well wishes) when I posted a blog about it. In fact, Pearl suggested mange as a possible problem. Well I went into the vet today and he stuck dye in my eye and made my eyes glow!! He thought maybe I had a scratch, but it wasn't (but it was cool to have my eyes glow!!) Then he said he was going to scrape my eyelids...I was like what?? My orbs are the source of my power, please be careful!!! He was gentle and I was diagnosed as having mange.
Mom went into the back and he showed her my film and she saw both live and dead mites on the microscope. Here is a picture of what a mite looks like. Mom was happy to see that I had the kind that isn't contagious, so we can still hang out with other dogs.
So I'm pretty happy that I don't have to have gooey stuff put on my eye everyday anymore (mom was putting eye ointment on me). Actually, I don't have to do anything...the mites should just go away on their own. So thanks for all your well wishes and your pug (and non pug) pawsitive thoughts. In a few short weeks, my orbs will once again be at full power...then watch out! I will unleash ultimate orb-age upon you all.
