THESE DOG DAYS
A resource for disabled dogs and their owners
Today we talk to Paige from Santa Cruz, CA about life with her pit bull cross, Steve.
Steve was born both blind and deaf. His life could have taken two routes - he could have been aggressive, scared, and unpredictable (I would be terrified of everything if I couldn't see or hear it approaching!) or he could have been a confident, happy dog who didn't let his disabilities get in the way of enjoying life. He chose the latter. As far as I'm concerned, Steve doesn't have any disabilities - he is a normal dog that likes to eat, sleep, play, go on walks, and snuggle (ALL the snuggles).
What does a regular day with blind and deaf dog look like?
Today we talk to Ashley from Eugene, USA about life with Lumen (aka. Unicorn) the Great Dane. Lumen was born deaf and with severely deformed feet, then dumped at four weeks old in Tijuana, Mexico. Ashley talks us through their daily routine with Lumen and their other rescue dogs, all while running the busy Luvable Dog Rescue.
Could you tell us a bit about Lumen's condition?
