Maggie Isabella is our 9.5 week old mini dachshund…we found out a week ago that she was blind. We had started noticing the 2nd week we had her that she was running into everything, so we mentioned that to our vet at her regular appointment for shots..he checked her eyes and said both of her pupils were fully dilated. I have an appointment to see a veterinary ophthalmologist on April 15.
She is so smart and happy and can already find her way around the house. I feel like she was meant for me to have her. She was born on Jan 7, 2013 the same day we had to put my 4.5 yr old silver dapple dachshund Ellie Jane down…it still hurts every time I think about her..I’m in tears now..I’m sooo glad i got her instead of somebody who wouldn’t want her just because she’s blind. It breaks my heart whenever i tell somebody she’s blind and the first thing they ask me was if i got my money back from the breeder…No i didn’t and i think she was worth every cent i paid for her..She is my heart!! I couldn’t imagine not having her.
Today we started puppy training classes she did good even though the class was during her normal supper time..she gobbled up the treats.
I will post again after our visit to the ophthalmologist..
