Yogimus: Anastacya: As Ive posted before, my blind basset hound nearly died about two years ago when two infected glands on her abdomen ruptured. I carried her into the vet, blood all over my shirt, begging them to save my dog. They did. A few months after that her right eye succumbed to glaucoma; now both are removed. She is blind and has a nasty scar on her belly, but damnit, she is my babygirl. She moves around and has as much love for life, if not more, than before she lost her eyesight. She is my hero, and people who think that I should've put her down, when she was bleeding from the ruptures can kiss my grits.

Boy good thing you kept her suffering to prevent yourself pain. You are a sweetheart.


How do you know the dog is suffering? Just cause it can't see? How very righteous of you to determine the proper level of quality of life for another creature.

Disappointed that this one didn't make the list.

I've seen video of her too. Hopping around on her hind legs with her healthy mother chasing down a little red ball and then as soon as they strapped on the model airplane wheels to her she took straight off. I don't think I ever saw a maltese run so fast.

Also, who's the Farker here who has the 3 legged Greyhound. I would very much like to see that pic in this thread eventually.

It will be one-upped by the Greyhound from TFA with only two left legs (which I thought was awesome), but I would also like to see a "local boy" with a disabled dog post the pooch.

I know, not as badass as a do with 2 legs on one side of his body but he has a youtube video too. Luckily since he only posted it a few days ago so it popped right up.

We had a cat who went blind. We noticed that he was bumping into things occasionally. His vision would come and go for a few weeks and then it went completely. He was amazing. He'd use his whiskers to find walls, corners, furniture, etc. He roamed the house continuously for a while establishing routes. He seemed to be counting his steps. He followed the sound of our voices and our footfalls. After a couple of weeks, you'd never know he was blind. The only thing he had to stop doing was jumping up onto things. He climbed instead. We made it a habit of speaking to him whenever we went into a room he was in. He did just fine.

No, because of this: basset hound nearly died about two years ago when two infected glands on her abdomen ruptured. I carried her into the vet, blood all over my shirt.

Negligent jackasses like this shouldn't be permitted to own pets.

This is Magoo. He's partially blind and almost completely deaf.

He was a stray picked up by our animal control office. We have no idea how long he was out on his own, but even after being ours for four years he still wolfs his food down and watches out for other dogs while he eats.

He also likes playing:

Ok... and out of that how do you know these ruptured glands were due to negligence. Serious question. Dogs can't exactly say "Hey, boss. Something doesn't feel quite right. Maybe we should get this thing checked out."

As others before me have pointed out...Jesus Christ on #18!!!  Whoever takes care of that poor cat needs a farking Hero tag.

Ha-ha, Magoo... that's a good one.

I also have a dog who was a stray (from the humane society, tho) and she is now 8 years old, and STILL has food issues.  And believe me, she's not starving.

It wasn't due to negligence, it was a freak incident because she was in a false pregnancy and nursed two kittens. When they stopped nursing, the mammary glands swelled up with milk. The vet "milked" her once, but by then the damage was done, and it eventually ruptured.

In regards to her quality of life, short of the missing eyes, she is just like any other dog. She moves around, jumps on things, dances, and plays with the cats. I chose to pay to have them sew her up. I could've taken the easy way out and said "oh, she is fine in every other respect but something like this, oh god, the dog is bleeding in an unnatural way, put it down".

So yep, I'm an irresponsible asshat. And Katja, I know you didn't say that... I have a horrible cold so I just clicked the last reply.

Ok... this tragedy got weirdly cute and then sad again. But yeah, I didn't think you were neglecting your dog at all. Sh*t happens. Sometimes it's just unavoidable.

When you find out, let me know. I want to see them swoon on a teeny tiny fainting couch.

I like that someone named their pet pig "Chris P Bacon."

Also I wonder what the litter box situation is for the cat with no legs.

I have two slightly broken kitties.  It's hard to leave them when you hear random people at the shelter comment negatively on their problems.  I feel like they'll never be adopted and they always turn out to be the sweetest, most loving cats.

i50.tinypic.com i47.tinypic.com

The first one lost her eye to a birth defect.  So, she doesn't have a clue that she's different.  She's somewhat tiny, tries to be a total alpha cat, but is a huge baby who just wants to cuddle.

The second was clearly abused,  thrown out of a car on the freeway by some sadist and lost her front right leg and quite a lot else.  They really had to put her back together and did an amazing job.  She's a huge sweetheart, but is often like Dory from Finding Nemo.

They are best pals (except when they aren't), and totally awesome to have around.

Eh, I was trolling. I love me some animals.

Last year I let my husky out to pee during a lull in a hurricane, and she picked up something that squeaked. Turns out it was a baby squirrel that was blown out of the tree. So I told her to find another one and she did. Ended up finding 3 of them. One was already dead, one had a broken spine and died a couple of days later (but he died warm and fed) and one we raised. Played with her all the time. Kept her for the winter and was getting ready to release her for sping, but she up and died one day. Just dead in her little squirrel hammock. Have no idea why. She was about a year old.

 Austin resident GOB (George Oscar Bluth) needs a home. He's a happy friendly dog. He's getting physical therapy and is slowly getting the use of his legs back.


And if you'd like to donate a bit to help with his medical expenses, that would be much appreciated. Click here and scroll down to the bottom of the page.

Take comfort in that you provided that little squeaker with the sweet life during its brief stint on Earth.

Sorry about the giant photo. I thought I did everything I was supposed to do but obviously I missed something.

RobSeace: The fainting goats and fainting cats don't really have any actual disabilities... In the case of the goats, they just naturally freeze up and fall over when freaked out... In the case of the cats, I imagine they're just doing the standard cat "plot down in front of the human forcing them to stop and pet me" move...

Also, this looks like a new wharrgarbl image:
