what an awesome friend you have. i have three labs and one is blind in one eye and the will go eventually. the hairy children bring so much to the table and ask for nothing in return. you will never find another (human) friend that will give you so much unconditional companionship as that damn hairy kid. i find it absolutely amazing how dogs just go through day to day life with a handicap and seem only mildly affected by the things that would devastate us humans. as jeff said, people could learn alot from a dog. i'm glad you have such a good friend and wish her the best of luck.
You ain't got no problem, Jules. I'm on the motherfucker.
