"His seizure disorder was really, really bad and nothing - no medications - seemed to be helping," Jones said. "Anytime he [Tanner] seizes he expresses his bowels. It's a nightmare anytime you have a 90-lb dog experiencing this nightly; it made living in a home very, very difficult."


Yeah, no shiat. (no pun intended)

Cute.
Our dog is going blind but she's too old and mean for a companion.

/kicks, etc.

I see different breeds of dogs put together with no problems whatsoever all the time. What was this author talking about?!

born blind and with a seizure disorder so severe he was sent to Woodland Hospital as a last resort after his first owner died

I'm feeling a bit like Dr. House on this one. Was there a causative correlation between the owner's death and the neurological problems of this dog?

You're missing the obvious symbiosis.

My blind dog plays so rough. She's a little shark.

She makes up for her inability to find the other dogs by latching on when she can. And by being super cute.

"Pretty good."

My first thought at reading that opening was, "Well this person knows fark all about dogs. They just described most dog owning households in the U.S.."

Just got back from walking my two different breeds of two different backgrounds. They are currently having their post-breakfast snooze.

Okay... I don't think that author has spent time with more than one dog from more than one owner. FTFA: "Putting two dogs of different breeds and from different backgrounds together in a confined space will usually end up in a lot of bark and likely some bite." Does the author think dogs are usually nasty to each other?

I think the 'journalist' doesn't know much about dogs that can't fit in a handbag and be accessorized.

After such a heartwarming article, all some of you can do is whinge about one line in the article.

There is something really wrong with you.

There also seems to be a serious issue with gender specific pronoun agreement.

Tatsuma's point is valid though... yes, the author is an idiot, but we can move past that :)

Growing up, my family had a shih tzu and a pug who never really cared for one another. They didn't fight, but there were snipes and growls over food dishes and toys, and they generally avoided one another.
As our shih tzu got older, she developed cataracts and eventually went blind. Imagine our surprise when the pug became her little seeing eye dog - he would stand by her side, bodies touching, and guide her outside, to the food, to the toys, etc. It was pretty much the sweetest thing I've ever seen.

And all you can do is complain about complaining?

Anyways, I'm not much of a dog guy, but that was a very nice story.

When I was a kid I read a very sweet book called The Trouble with Tuck - it was about exactly the same thing. A family's beloved lab went blind because of a genetic defect and they got him a guide dog.

My dog's deaf, and I'm torn between finding another deaf dog (since I know how to handle it) or getting him a hearing buddy.

More important is finding a dog your dog is comfortable with.

Mara get her a hearing companion. We did and it our case it was like magic. No more startle reactions by us or the cats walking by. It was probably one of the best things we have done.

Aww. I have two dogs, one blind and deaf and ancient poodle and a healthy little westie. Blindy's actually pretty much the most impressive dog I've ever met. She navigates stairs without falling and needs no assistance finding anyone. It's really annoying when she's asleep because if you make too much air motion she'll wake up and try to go play, or if you step to hard and she feels it through floor [and up onto my freaking bed] she'll wake up and want to play, or if you try to light a joint she'll smell it and ...

I love her to death, but she's on her last legs.
 
2012-04-29 06:24:53 PM  
Awww, so glad they are friends! Definitely going to toss a few dollars to the rescue to help take care of these buddies :)

When one of my dogs went blind my other dog was doing the exact same thing. He would walk next to her so she wouldn't want into things, he would groom her, and he would stand in front of her and protect her when he thought there was danger. She went blind at about age 7, and he helped her live to the ripe old age of 15. She wouldn't have made it past 12 on her own. When the vet came to put her down when she was on her last legs he wouldn't let anyone near her. When I put him in the laundry he was crying and yelping and ran around the backyard for months looking for her.

Had to have the poor boy put down less than a month ago at the age of 14 from liver cancer. Right up until the end of February he was still running around happy as can be with all his senses still in tact. Still miss the little fella every day.

Again,some asshole who would find more satisfaction in reminding people of repeats than just skipping right over it. You don't pay for it, why f*ck with yourself, I mean, your own self? Why f*cking marginalize everybody else? Do you act like this in traffic?
