blind dogs actually can do very well on their own, even better with help from their humans. she does really awesome, better than I was ever expecting when we realized she would be blind some day. when she lost her first eye the eye doctor told us we would have between 3-31 months before the other eye would go, she made it 33 months.

She still has a great quality of life! She loves walks, plays with her toys still and loves just laying in the grass in the sunshine! and she still loves the water!

I was a real wreck when I thought about how she would be when she finally went blind. She was very skittish and fearful of new people when she could see, I thought she might end up in a corner just trembling and cowering if she could not see. It had to be about her Q.O.L. not what I wanted, so I decided she would have to be put down if it came to that because that is no Q.O.L. for any animal.

Luckily she came through it with a never quit attitude and she is actually less fearful not being able to see than she was when she could

She is less afraid now of things and people that creeped her out before.
I could not have asked for a better outcome other than her not loosing the eyes in the first place.

and yes she took it all a lot better than I did

Its an amazing thing isnt it? My grandpas 14 year old dashound has been diabetic for going on 3 yrs now. I give her incluin twice a day in the back of the neck along with feeding her special food. About a year into it her vision started to go, and now she it totally blind and eyes are a glazed over cloud, kinda freaky looking at her, always thought it would be funny to get her a set of goggles like motorcycle dogs have. She can sense when I walk in the door because she only seems to bark at me which my grandpa finds funny but I find it amazing because Ive tested this over and over and no barking with my gf or her kids running around. But like your dog, she has the whole house mapped out and as long as we dont go moving stuff around and pick up after oursevles like we should then she is fine, every once in awhile she will take a wrong turn but once I straighten her out she is good again. I do it for my grandpa because he loves this dog and her Q.O.L is also good but she has lived way longer than I thought she would with incilin. Sorry to hear your dog got hurt, but when we leave(my grandpa rarely leaves the house by his own choice so someone is always there with her) we do put her in a kenel and she knows whats up and lays down in her bed. Like a safe zone because we feared she would get hurt looking for grandpa. I hope your dog has a good and speedy recovery!

Absolutely amazing! That is one lucky dog! I'm sure a lot of people would've put her down when the 2nd eye went, for her to be able to do the things she enjoys still is amazing. My 1st dog since I moved away from home is 13 and I would've done the same as you have.

yup...i would say it breaks my heart to see (really, it does)but already know that dawg is king...
her leg will heal. not sure how the leg got broke but perhaps instead of a crate put ur pup in her favorite room (no tall furniture)and put a baby gate at the door...she'll be happy to be able to stretch out a bit while ur at work...

Just wanted to thank you for taking such great care of her. I hate to read all the bad things about people that somehow can't take care of their dogs because of the stupidest shit and end up putting them down or giving them up. The smallest things with our kids freaks me out and I would do anything for them. I'm glad to read that others are like that too. Thanks again and hope she heals up her broken leg soon. :) Hugs for the puppy.

updates on Sasha.
We went to the vet Saturday, Monday and Thursday in the last 7 days resulting in a new bandage per visit. She DOES NOT want that thing on her leg anymore! The cone they had given her was too short so now we have a new longer one, and it is going on be on her when ever we are not able to physically be with her. Also got some lickguard to hopefully help keep her away from it.

The Dr. says her bone is healing nicely albeit slow. It has mended enough that Monday they decided to remove the splint and just put on a soft bandage for support so she can start walking on it. They want her lightly using it to help promote growth in the bone. She had the toes open on Mondays bandage so she could actually walk on it properly but she would still favor it as it had been in a splint for 6 weeks and a few days, so it's gonna be sore for a bit. Yesterdays bandage was done by a different vets office and tech so they wrapped the toes and she can't walk on it properly again, so she is keeping it off the ground. which is fine by me, as I want that bone healed! We are keeping her inactive and keeping a close eye on her when we are home. She is tired of that thing on her leg, as are we but we gotta stick it out for a bit longer. More x-rays on 5-13 so hopefully the bandage can come off and just keep her moving slow for a bit after that, and we will be all set. I will get some pictures of her in the cone of shame tonight for some public humiliation therapy.

She's too cute and such a fighter. I have a coworker with the blind dogs. He said they do really well in areas they know.
