A Big Step

Have you ever taken a photograph and found it too funny to not share?  One of those that you just have to show somebody?

I know some people think it probably isn't nice to laugh at a little blind and partly deaf dog happens. You have to. Our vet suggested it when Hiker was adopted. "If you don't laugh you'll feel sorry for her and she won't do anything. As long as she is no danger, find the humor and treat her as a normal dog."  That is how both Brook and Hiker have been treated and as you know, they do almost everything a "normal" and sighted dog does.

The look on (blind and partly deaf) Brook's face as she contemplates heading outside from the barn is too funny to not share.  In fairness to her, it IS a big step. One which she can easily navigate.


  1. Bwahaahaa! At least she can't see or hear us laughin'. She's so cute.

  2. Oh bless how cute and how amazing that they just get on with it. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. Oh that is funny. We're not laughing at her we're laughing with her. She's probably thinking "I may not be able to see, I can't hear too well, but I can smell you have NO TREATS in your pocket!! Take care and thanks for sharing a wonderful photo.
    No worries, and love, Stella and Rory
