I'm thankful that a dog's sight is not their first sense - especially in a scent hound. But it still makes me sad. He's coping well and other than his eye being super cloudy - he's not acting like his vision is impaired at all.
We've started adding frozen blueberries to all of the kibble because a very good friend said that it could help with his sight. I don't know if it helps or not, but they are all enjoying the purple goodness in their food.
Do you give your dogs only dog toys? My big hounds *love* anything that makes noise - seriously. So last week - after an especially long day - I bought them a noise making pig from the angry birds game. Yes, it was a kid's toy, and it was fairly expensive for how long it lasted. But for 3 days Lucy adored it. She pranced through the house with the piggy in her mouth, she'd bring it to me so I could throw it (yes - we do throw balls in the house) and chased it. She wrestled with Beau over the piggy and she made it oink. She was in heaven. When her not so gentle mouth broke the noise maker - well she was done and she ripped it apart to get the offending broken part out.
The good news is she will still play with it a little bit. But now it will become one of Beau's treasured babies. He picks one every morning, takes them around the house and yard, carries it everywhere until he had breaky - then he's done with it until next time.
Until next time - have a safe and happy Thursday. Remember the little things in life that make your life worthwhile. Hug your pups and humans and tell them all that you love them.
