New addition to the family. Welcome JAX

I have been sadly slacking on my blog updates as of late. I have been super busy. Still shooting my camera every day, still watching my Grandbabies. In July I took on a Foster dog for SharPei Savers. The above picture is Jax the first day I got him. He is basically blind, Vets estimate he has about 10% of his vision left. He suffered from untreated Entropion (basically a breed related condition where the upper and/or lower eyelids roll into the eye and cause damage to the corneas). He had entropion surgery the week after I got him.
As you can see, the Vet removed pieces of his upper and lower eyelids and stitched them so his eyelashes no longer rub his corneas. Because they were untreated for so long, the damage to his eyes is permanent. To make a long story short, there is no way I could let this wonderful boy go anywhere else, so I am adopting him!!

And a month later, this is how Jax looks now! Amazing what a little love can do! He has gained 8 lbs in 4 weeks, he is recovered from his surgery and is a happy healthy little lilac boy with a new home.
