Seeing Eye Dog…for a dog?

By Susan Posted in Handicapped dogs /

We know what to do if we have a handicapped person. For instance a blind person has many resources. School for the blind, Braille, Seeing Eye dogs.

But what about a handicapped dog?

I’ve already told you about my paralyzed dog Isabel. And of course she now has many resources available to her because we love her and made sure we got as many as possible for her so her life is normal.

Well I found this incredible article while “stumbling” the other day about a seeing eye dog for a blind…dog. How wonderful is that? It brought tears to my eyes it made me so happy for Clyde and Bonnie, Get it? Bonnie and Clyde. They are adorable and this blind dog could not want for more. It is a great story, I hope you enjoy it too.   Guide dog leads blind pooch – two are inseparable.

    Can you give me any more information about these dogs? Namely I’m interested in if they were litter mates. I would like to know if this sort of relationship is possible if 2 dogs are introduced as adults.

    I have a 10 year old Shih Tzu who could really use a guide dog. He is blind and now he’s losing his hearing too, which has made him increasingly insecure understandably. I’m wondering if another dog being with him 24/7 would be a comfort?

    Do you have any thoughts or suggestions?
    Thank you!

    Actually, yes I do think it would do some good for your older dog to have a companion. Dogs are extremely intuitive. A lot of it depends on the personality of the dog, if your dog would accept a new friend it could be extremely beneficial. My older dog Isabel who is now paralyzed lost her life time companion and it was obviously she was sad, we had to work long hours and she was alone. It just was not working. So we got her a kitten, and they have bonded and she really has a friend now, and she seems so much happier and peaceful with things. We have introduced older dogs into an established family before and it worked very well. Everyone in the family was gentle and easy to get along with so it was really an expected outcome.

    I’m sorry I don’t know if the two dogs in the film were liter mates or not. But it wouldn’t really matter. I believe that dogs can become friends if given time and a loving atmosphere. Like I said it really does depend on the dogs personality. But for the sake of your older dog, I wouldn’t hesitate to try.
