A Dog’s Seeing Eye Dog. :(

What an amazing story. Thank you, Colleen T., for sending it to us.

“Lily is a Great Dane that has been blind since a bizarre medical condition required that she have both eyes removed. For the last 5 years, Maddison, another Great Dane, has been her sight.  The two are, of course, inseparable.”

You have to see the rest of these photos.  Such beautiful dogs…

    When I have millions of dollars, I’m sending money to the people taking care of the dogs in every story like this to make sure they have good, happy homes for the rest of their lives, as well as proper medical care.

    as a person with a special needs pet(18 yr old blind cat) i want you to know he’s never complained, felt sorry for himself and has great coping skills. he can find his essential stations(feeding and litter box) easily and has taught many life lessons.

    What a great story! My family had a dog when I was a kid who was blind since the age of 2 and also eplileptic. He had some rough days, but was always a happy-go-lucky guy.
