It's my birthday and I'll bark if I want to !!
what did I get for my birthday? Deaf and blind,that's what:(
In the last few weeks I have lost my remaining sight and am 99% deaf, bummer.
I saw an eye specialist last year and learned I have PRA (progressive retinal atrophy) but I got a double whammy - cataracts on top of PRA, good grief. I am having quite a time getting oriented, and I seem to wander more - mom smiles and says I am looking for my sight, but inside she is leaking bad, that this has happened to me.
I bark more now, but the pawrents don't mind, they are just glad I feel ok, have a good appetite and am still here...and I wasn't supposed to last beyond puppyhood, if you've read my diary you will see the deck has been stacked against me since day 1, but I have always been an optimist and so I am still here.
It might be my last barkday, but who knows, I could fool everyone as I have before....furever hopeful and determined... Liddy
Happy birfday, Liddy! Here's hoping for some cake!!
You enjoy every minute Liddy Pearl!
hi Liddy, I am going blind, so I know what you mean about those darn cataracts! I think we have lived to quite a distinguished age, and it looks good on us!!!!
