Arrival Story:
Chopper found us at the Pierce County Humane Society. He had had a very hard life up until the point he was taken to the shelter. When he arrived at Pierce County, the groomers cut 5 pounds of matted fur off of him. He looked kind of funny, it was even a little hard to tell he was a Cocker with that hair cut, but I know it must have felt so much better. Chopper was very timid and scared at first, but became very attached to us very quickly, once he realized we were going to treat him well. We would go on hikes, go to the dog park and take road trips; and he fit right in.

Sadly, early in 2008, Chopper's left eye became very cloudy and I immediately took him into the vet to receive the the unfortunate news that he had glaucoma. We were able to keep the pressure in the left eye regulated for a month, before the pain and pressure became unbearable for him; and that eye had to be removed. His right eye was maintained with pressure drops 2 times a day for nearly 2 years, but in December of 2010, his right eye was lost to the glaucoma as well. Chopper has adjusted well to the loss of his eyes, but there are some things he will not be able to enjoy again. The dog park and off-leash hikes are just too dangerous for him. He takes more naps and likes more "snuggle time". He still enjoys walks, but he goes much slower than before. He is still a very happy dog, and I don't think he'd rather be anywhere else!
