I received my first puppy when I was seven years old. At 23, I adopted my first very own collie, Sam, a decision that would change my life in immeasurable ways.
I acquired Sam as a healthy 11 month old puppy. A year and a half later, he went blind, from uveitis, glaucoma and detached retinas, all at once. Little did I know how much this would change my life.
I spend the next three years, medicating his eyes, hoping to keep him free from pain, but eventually needed to have his eyes removed. Once they were gone, and he was free from medications, our life was much more free. He was mobile, easier to manage, portable, and more fun. I vowed to take what I learned from my experience, and help others in the same situation.
Five years after Sam went blind, I picked up and moved to arguably one of the most dog friendly places in the country, San Diego. I've been here over eight years and Sam and I have helped many clients struggling with blindness to see how capable and portable your blind dog can be.
Sammy Wonder was laid to rest in 2015, but his impact on my life, to help others with their blind (and sometimes deaf) dogs, will remain with me forever.
