Lois aka 'Monkey'

Post by staffylevi » Sat May 31, 2014 1:18 pm

Well there’s no update on Lois as I never did a thread for her, think I had writer’s block after the other three so I’ll have to start from the beginning so kick back, relax and enjoy the journey; lot’s to tell on this little monkey. Here goes... :biggrin.gif:
If Lois was a person she would be the only Supermodel to have one eye. She’s got all the qualities you would expect to find in one of these ladies; she’s tall, leggy, slender with just the right amount of curves, she’s got plenty of attitude and she'll wrap you right round her lil' finger; a proper little diva without a doubt!

Image

She was found wandering a dual carriageway, approximately four months old, all she had to her name was the fur on her back, a collar and a lead. She was microchipped, her owners contacted but as you’d expect they gave some c..k ‘n’ bull story telling the dog warden they'd given her away to a friend; with friends like that…..!!

I saw her on the internet and tracked her down to a rescue in Nottingham, a time consuming task but I got there in the end, I always do, I wanted her and nothing was gonna stop me from getting her; ‘She’s like Lilly’, I said to Lee and she was such a cutie pie - she's nothing like Lil. :biggrin.gif:

Lois's internet pic - The face that melted my heart how could I turn my back?
Image

Her description might have put some people off but not me, I was once described as being ‘like a dog with a bone’… lol! Anyway, enough about me. Fizz, as she was known, had issues; food aggression and a very feisty nature… Oh! God! I really should learn to leave that bone alone sometimes… :roll:

It was a scorching hot day when we travelled the long journey to Nottingham, rest of pack in tow and the staffy mobil full to capacity or so I thought… room for one more??? Elaine took us to meet the little minx, there she was rolling around upside down showing off her belly looking very sorry for herself, she had the worse kennel cough I have ever seen; streaming eyes and a thick snotty nose, she looked a mess. She also had very bandy legs due to lack of calcium which a good diet sorted out.

Homeward Bound
We walked her with the rest of the pack who seemed totally disinterested in her. As we’d travelled a long distance Elaine said we could take her there and then. We filled out the necessaries, loaded her on my lap in the car and off we went homeward bound! :biggrin.gif:

She was sick twice in the car and just looked really ill (please don’t think badly of the rescue they just wanted her out of there where she could receive all the TLC necessary to get her better). As we are on very good terms with our vets I rang them while travelling and booked Fizz in for an appointment as she was extremely poorly.

When we picked her up we noticed she had different coloured eyes (yes, she had two), our vets said it was nothing to worry about so we didn’t until one day a few months later she came in from the garden with her eye closed and we all know what that means – she was in pain! It was a Sunday, we took her to the emergency vets who suspected a Lens Luxation (LL) – this was serious and we were sent to the Animal Health Trust (AHT) in Suffolk where it was confirmed to be LL. Lois, whom we named on the way home from the rescue after seeing her namesake splashed right across the back of a lorry travelling in front of us was none the wiser, she was still her happy-go-lucky, cheeky, full of attitude diva self; we on the other hand were absolutely distraught.

The lens is the transparent structure within the eye that focuses light on the retina, the area where vision occurs. It is a flattened sphere held in place by tiny ligaments around its circumference.

What causes lens luxation?
In some dogs, particularly the terrier breeds, the support ligaments of the lens weaken or break causing the lens to dislocate from its normal position. It can fall backwards into the eye known as a posterior luxation, where it rarely causes discomfort, or it can fall forwards into the eye, called an anterior luxation, where it blocks the drainage of fluid from the eye resulting in glaucoma or increased intra-ocular pressure (IOP). This is extremely painful and can cause permanent blindness. Lois had the latter. :cry:
Image

We had a few options but really only one was feasible; enucleation (removal of eye) – I so wished I’d never had to find out what that word meant. However, before going down that so so drastic route there was an alternative to try first, this alternative came in the form of drops to restrict the pupil not allowing the lens to come forward and cause pain. We tried her on these for a few days and all seemed good until the eye reverted back to closing again; this little lady is such a livewire and because of this the drops just couldn’t do their job. The next visit to the AHT was one that will live in my memory forever; this was the visit where we had to make the heart-wrenching decision to have the monkey’s eye removed. How the tears flowed! A very kind lady whose dog was in for a brain tumour said to me: ‘She’s absolutely beautiful, don’t let anyone ever tell you any different.’ Those words will be with me always.

It’s amazing the surgeries that can be carried out; we discussed all the prosthetic options but the surgeon wasn’t convinced a prosthetic would stay in place given Lois’s lively nature and could result in further ops so for that reason we opted for our only viable option, a full enucleation; not the best option for us but definitely the best option for our lil’ girl.

After her op
Image

Lois recovered well; still a supermodel, still a diva, still with loads of attitude but you gotta love ‘er. Sometimes she drives me round the bend but she is such a character with bags of personality you can’t help but hold her in the highest esteem. As it turned out she could only see light reflection in the eye that was removed so as far as she was concerned she'd only ever had one eye, well that is since the trauma the surgeons believe her to have suffered; maybe some kind of head injury causing the lens to detach itself (excuse me while I just bite my tongue!) as it's rare for it to happen in a dog so young, the average age is around the 6 year mark.

Image

Her food aggression was not really aggression just a case of no manners. Her feisty nature on the other hand well that’s a whole other ball game. Have you got time?? Are you still awake?? :lol:

Mad as a Hatter!
She was a four-month-old Staffy x Boxer when we took her on and instead of life being good with this adorable little puppy it was hell. With three other dogs and the devil dog joining our midst life was certainly no bowl of cherries. Enter Adem our life saver! You are reading about two very experienced staffy/dog owners here and we let poor Lois come into our home and our pack thinking she ruled the roost; no place for a little girl to be! After months of hard work splitting our pack, walking them separately Lois has hung up her horns although they do still put in the odd appearance. :smiley-rolleyes010.gif: Mum 'n' Dad are in charge and life has resumed to some kind of normality, well as normal as it can be with a Lois around.

She has a thing about socks, pants, slippers and feet! She’ll take socks out of the laundry, if I leave the door of the washing machine open and she spies a sock its outta there and somewhere else! If you can't find a sock in this house you find yourself asking Lois; 'Lois, where's my other sock?' :lol: She'll have a great game with 'em, throwing them around, up in the air; laying upside down chewing on them and feet, she loves Lee’s feet, she’ll play with them for as long as he’ll let her! Yuk! I don’t do feet!
She’s into everything; if Lois doesn’t know about it it’s not worth knowing about. She a wonderful staffy singer and can sing on command, the attitude part of this girl comes in the form of Kevin the teenager… ‘Ooohh, if I av to do it’. She loves her dad loads and when he comes home from work she’s on him like a rash. Lois is the kinda girl you need to be calm around although sometimes that can be quite hard; if she see's you laugh or your high pitch it'll send her in to mad half hour, frenzy mode.

This leggy lady is Mad as a March Hare but make no mistake she is highly intelligent; she’ll read you like a book knowing your every move even before you do. She’s doing Advanced Gold training and like our other girls helps with the re-branding of the staffy's good name. She’ll have you in stitches with her antics.

With Jasmine. Doin' it for the staffies...
Image

To sum up this canine character; I’ll have to keep it brief, I’m sure there’s a word limit on here somewhere To funny She’s the most loving, funny, charismatic soul you could ever wish to meet and we wouldn’t change her for the world; hhmm, well maybe…. No, only joking!!! If she never did as she was told then that’s another story.

She’s Lois, she’s our ‘monkey’ and we love her! xxx

I didn't realise she only had one eye. She is a beauty!

You are so good with words. If I wrote that much I'd be falling asleep!! Instead I enjoyed it all.

Lovely story and what a lucky girl she was the day you came for her. Your faith in her has given her what she needed to blossom and shine - she has come a long way. She is a beautiful girl, full of character and I can see why you love her so.

Thank you for your lovely comments and Vicky, I was falling asleep! Did you see the time I was writing this post? To funny

Not many people do notice she's only got one eye cos' she's dark it really blends well, it certainly don't slow her down any. At first I wanted to wrap her up in cotton wool but I soon gathered my senses and had to let her just be a dog. :D

A lil' update on this cheeky monkey. :D

Lois is still as mad as a hatter and still has us in fits of laughter... we say she's a staffy x boxer (box'r tricks!) Laugh She's a real card! I still take her training where she's doing her Advanced Gold. She, along with Jasmine and Lilly have changed everyone's perception in class of the staffy breed.

Out of all the girls I would say Lois is the most loving (a daddy's girl without a doubt), she's the most energetic out of our pack; run her for a few hours and sure she'll be tired, take her training for an hour and she's out for the count!! :D

We take her on some awareness drives to big up the staffy name and she always does them proud but she would much rather be snuggled at home in the warm on the sofa. :roll:

Lois gets on well with all dogs and never has a bad word to say; she has accepted all the waif 'n' stray staffies that have graced the 'staffylevi' household and although a forthright, vocal character, underneath it all she's the biggest softy you could ever wish to meet. :D

A few pics to enjoy...

Did she get onto the glass table on her own (picture at the top of the page) coz it's not very big?????? My Oz wouldn't be able to get on it or stay on it... he'd just crash to floor like a giant beetle. She looks very confident in all her photo shoots. x

lol! She did and it is a small table. She's very confident; too bleedin' confident sometimes; a 'cockey' little madam most of the time that's why her nickname's 'Monkey'. ;) ;)

Ooozing confidence with her sisters. xx

I can't believe that nobody has commented on this beautiful pile of pups.
I'd sooooooo love to have my own pile of "em" that all got on so well.

I love reading about your babies and about the many foster dogs that you welcome into your home :) you are a fantastic advocate for the bull breeds and show how wonderful these beautiful dogs.

I doubt you'll ever have the time , but if ever you do you should write a book. It would be a wonderful read :-)

Thank you for the vote of confidence (wonderful read), I used to write for a living... my ambition is to write a book; maybe one day!!! Watch this space... ;) ;)
