Precious is a tiny little min pin who is blind and deaf. She was easily scared and always hiding in a pile of blankets. Here is an update from her mom, Lara:
“Remember I said I had started to feed Precious on the floor next to her bed, rather than in her bed? Well, A couple of times now she has not wanted to take her food when it was given, and I just left the bowl there on the floor. After a time, she chose to leave her bed and go to eat her food, standing next to her bed – like a real dog. She is doing so well! The surgery has made a big difference to her quality of life. A very big difference.
Yesterday we sat in the garden for a short time (until I lost the sun) – I took her whole bed out and put it at my feet. Well, she squeaked and chirped a great deal and smelled the air incessantly for about twenty minutes, then curled up on her towel. I put a couple of different garden items in her bed – a small potted plant, herb leaves, flowers – and let her investigate. She seemed to have a grand old time. The neighbour’s dog was in their garden, Precious sensed him and whined with (positive) excitement. Very cool. She is learning to lie contentedly while I drink coffee or eat lunch at a restaurant. So much more trusting of her world.
She has changed my life too. She is lying here at my feet like a little bird in the egg of her basket. My cat is sharing a pillar of sunlight with her and the house is so peaceful."
It’s never too late for a new beginning!
