    Kelli Hunnicutt Hi. I have a blind and diabetic dachshund. She is 11 years old. She has been blind for almost 3 years now. We had to put her best friend for 9 years of her life down in Nov. We could tell she was depressed so we thought it would be a good idea to get her another friend. She wasn't doing well in her yard alone and I hate creating all day while we are at work. Her friend is 3 year old and a lab/healer mix. She does not like her friend at all. They have gotten in a few fights and my dachshund always is on the bottom because she can't see what she is fighting or attacking her. They just got into a bad fight when we were at work and we came home to her bloody and very scared. She has marks on her ears, face and neck. It is the worst fight so far. We were wondering if maybe we shouldn't have gotten her a friend? We are not sure what to do.

    cLawson Moses, 11, lost his eyes 3 years ago and adjusted miraculously! About a week ago he started bumping into everything in the house. We can not figure out what changed.

    Natalie Kornmueller Hi All A few weeks ago I was helping search for a lost dog in the city of Santa Ana and I came across a posting on the Santa Ana Facebook Craigslist site from a gentleman that had found a blind Chihuahua hiding under a car outside his home. I couldn’t resist the look of his lost little face and jumped in to help find his family. I posted for two weeks on line and went to the area where he was found and plastered it with flyers, with no luck. No one stepped forward to claim him! ☹ The family that had him was very nice to take him off the street but unfortunately they just couldn’t care for him and all they could do was have him in a crate all day with no walks or interaction. My husband and I just couldn’t sit by and do nothing. We decided he needed our help and we could absorb the cost of his vet check-up, vaccines, and neuter. We thought that through our contacts and networking we would help find him a forever home. Last Wednesday, February 1st my husband picked up Lucas (that is what we decided to call him) and took him straight to the vet for his check up. We thought Lucas was older and maybe had cataracts which restricted his vision but unfortunately, that wasn’t the case. Lucas is actually about 3 yrs old and had subluxation/luxation of the eye, the lens in both his eyes had moved causing pain, loss of vision and severe glaucoma. Our vet recommended he have a bilateral enucleation (both eyes removed). We were in shock and saddened by the news and extremely concerned of making the right choice for his future and the possibility of finding him an adoptive family . The next morning we made an appointment to have him checked out with a veterinary ophthalmologist for a second opinion before taking such a drastic decision. The Dr. confirmed the diagnosis and told us it was the best option for Lucas to have a healthy life and we should move forward with the surgery. The very next day Lucas went into surgery for his neuter and his enucleation with our regular vet. He stayed at the vets recovering for a few days and is now home with us recovering from surgery. This little guy is extremely sweet, loves to be petted, he is happy in your arms or following you around the house, he truly has a great disposition and is adapting very well to loosing his sight. I've reached this forum trying to find tips on how to help him adjust post surgery. I have been reading the emails and love knowing Lucas is not alone and there are some wonderful people loving and caring for the blind pets. I hope Lucas find someone special soon to love and support him thru this journey. He deserves it!
