Our Nicky is totally blind and when she is out in the yard, you'd never know she is blind. She will run across the grass and around the buildings as tho she can really see. I believe that they all live in the moment and given half a chance will enjoy their life.
Some days it's not worth chewing through the straps! Thanks, Jules. Frustration is trying to find your glasses without your glasses. Thanks, Mary Anne!
Remember: Don 't make old People mad. We don't like being old in the first place, so it doesn't take much to piss us off.
Rescuing one dog may not change the world, but for that one dog, the world will be changed forever.
Animals adapt so much better to disability than humans.
My little Maggs could have been like this last year, but we were lucky we had enough to pay for spinal surgery and had a fantastic local vet and surgeon. She constantly amazes me 4 days after her spinal surgery she was moving her legs and could stand assisted. She now runs around the yard with my other two.
Veterinary practice and rehab has grown so much in the last few years, you'd be surprised at what they can do for animals that would have previously been incapacitated

We recently adopted Natasha, a blind Fancy Russian Dwarf Hamster, along with her two sighted sisters. They make a great trio......Natasha can even be a bit of a bully, but she quickly learns to do everything her sisters can do. She is a bit of a dare-devil and likes to climb to the top of the cage and listen for Jessica or Tatiana to get below her, then she lets go and plops down on them.
