This video makes my heart smile. A formerly blind dog named Duffy, an Irish Terrier, lost his eyesight to diabetes. Medication helped to stablilize the diabetes and he qualified for surgery to get his eyesight back. This is Duffy reacting to seeing his family and owner Benjamin May for the first time with his newly regained sight. :)
This hits close to home for me because my dog Jane, a Jack Russell Terrier, who is definitely one of the loves of my life, recently became blind. She still manages to get around but is always bumping into things and increasingly anxious. She recognizes me by smell and touch, but it would be amazing if she could get a surgery like this one day.
Do you have a pet? Does it feel like a part of your family? It definitely does for me!
