Mom says we are "stuck in Christmas" until our new computer arrives---hopefully tomorrow!!! It has been almost 2 weeks now without a computer!!
Mom took me to see a veterinary opthomologist yesterday to see if anything could be done about me losing my sight. I do have cataracts in both eyes, but at my age she was not really too optomistic about surgery for me. She said that many dogs my age that go blind can become very depressed. But she also said what Mom has always known. She said I am about the happiest boy she has ever seen!! But Mom already knew that . . . She also saw that my dog brother Wesley acts as a seeing eye dog for me, as I have a tendency to follow closely behind him. She said that will help keep my attitude positive too. I always knew I had a special brother . . .
Hope to be back on line soon!
PS. Wesley in entered in a photo contest at the local newspaper. You can vote for him by following the link on his page. That would be so much appreciated if you have time.
Well, Sunny, if you have to be stuck in a holiday, Christmas is a good one to be stuck in! BOL! I'm sorry about your eyes, but how pawsome that you have your own seeing eye doggie brother. Have a happy new year!
Dear, sweet Sunny~
Tell your Mama not to worry one bit IF you do go blind (it's much harder on us humans than on our pups)!.
Mom & Dad's last dog, their beloved "Buddy" (now at the Bridge) went blind at age 5 (from Diabetes) and you'd have never know he was blind...people couldn't believe ituntil we told them. He got along just fine...all their other senses kick in and even though Buddy didn't have a seeing eye brudder like dear Wesley, he was with Mom & Dad all the time and never missed a beat!! Not to worry, sweetheart, you'll be find and with the amount of love and care you get in your wonderful home you will never, ever be depressed. Keep smilin' that beautiful smile of yours!
