Hi All

You may or may not know that my Daisy-May is blind - this was possibility as a result of Mum rejecting her and the head trauma she received we will never know, But is a happy sole and will be staying with us.

After a very challenging day with her getting very frustrated and angry on Monday I found this poem which put it all back into perspective:

Make sure you have the tissues ready.

I cannot see you Mommy, when you cuddle me so near.
And yet I know you love me, it's in the words I hear.
I cannot see you Daddy, when you hold me by your side
But still I know you love me when you tell me so with pride.
I cannot see to run and play out in the sun so bright
For here inside my tiny head it's always dark as night.
I cannot see the treats you give when I am extra good
But I can wag my tail in Thanks just like a good dog should.
"She cannot see. The dogs no good" is what some folks might say
"She can't be trained, she'll never learn She must be put away."
But not you, Mom and Daddy You know that it's alright
Because I love you just as much as any dog with sight.
You took me in, you gave me love and we will never part
Because I'm blind with just my eyes, I see you in my heart.

I wish her all the best. It's surprising how dogs can cope with this handicap.

I can report that Daisy-May had a great time at Dogs Unleashed although at times found is very stressful.

Nelson gave me some great training tips with her.

It's a struggle for her I'm sure in new environments. How old is she now?
