Lily is a Great Dane that has been blind since a bizarre medical condition required that she have both eyes
removed. For the last 5 years, Madison, another Great Dane, has been her sight. The two are, of course,
This is just beautiful!
Aren’t these the dogs that were turned into a shelter by their owner and the Shelter put a plea out for someone to adopt both of them and someone did take them both? Can you imagine turning these dogs into a shelter?
Luckily, there was a happy ending for Lily and Madison: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2055471/A-new-home-blind-Great-Dane-devoted-guide-dog.html
That first picture is just phenomenal.
It never ceases to amaze me at what our dogs are able to do. My Angel went blind from a brain tumor when she was 9. It amazed me how quickly she adapted to her loss of sight. I also noticed that Ruffie made a point of being her guide. He always made sure to physically put himself between her and any hazard like stairs, etc.
I always wondered how he just knew to do that for her.
Dogs are so resilient. They may feel badly about the situation but not for long. They move on and don’t waste time feeling sorry for themselves.

You are a very wise lady, I needed to read something like that today and boy did it hit where it hurts.
This is very beautiful. If we take the time to stand still for a few minutes, it is amazing how the dogs communicate with one another, through body language, different tones of barking, and even visual things. We can learn alot from them!
So touching, makes my heart ache for Lily.
I know! That first picture killed me!
So sweet… 🙂
This is so touching. Thanks for sharing it Karen. The world would be such a better place if people acted like dogs. Don’t you think? 🙂
Thank you so much for sharing with us, Karen. This is so beautiful.
Makes ya thankful for our own “fur babies” even if they might have a few problems!!! 🙂
So true Kristen! If we could all be as forgiving to one another as dog’s are to us…..that unconditional love they so graciously bestow on us!
How appropriate with Thanksgiving around the corner.
Thanks Karen for reminding us to be thankful for the little things in life.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
