Blind Dogs...Just want to have fun.

These two short videos are of Boo Boo playing with Yogi in the summer of 2009 Boo Boo has PRA and has been blind since just after 3yrs old in this video he is 12 plus years old. Boo Boo does not play this hard anymore but that is due to his intervertebral disc problems not the fact that he is blind. Our pets are truely amazing. To get the news that your pet may be blind is heartbreaking but they do have a bright happy future. As you can see nothing much stops my little land shark. Also Boo Boo never growled or snapped at the puppy even when he had enough.



Robbie, Boo Boo, Yogi, and Misty's human.
Poohkey miss you, monkey.

Debbie, Boo Boo is the red dog he is a Lhasa Apso, notice how he trys to judge the distance to jump on the couch, he pops up several times and when he jumps he often lands on one of the other dogs.

I had the same question as to which was which. I really couldn't tell, so Boo Boo does quite well.

Wow. I'm with everyone else. In the first video it is hard to tell which one can't see. Animals are amazing in thier ability to cope with pretty much whatever life throws at them. We humans could learn a thing or two from them.
Thank you for sharing the videos.
