Ping worthy, feel good story
My little black boy (racist!!) has been blind since about this time last year. I’m sure we’ve learned a lot more than he has in that year, or at least as much, things like patience and appreciating every little accomplishment he makes. He’s a sweet boy and 100% totally dependent on us.
I have a blind JRT, Glaucoma and both eyeballs have now been removed because of constant infections. As soon as we got those eyeballs out of his little head he turned into a better dog than when he could see. Lost his first eye at 2, his second one at age 4 and he is 5 now.
He knows his way around the house and yard and people who come over to the house are sometimes not even aware that he is blind.
I have 3 other dogs and none of them have made any effort to help him and he is independent enough to not want any help.
