no not a joke, my daughters Patterdale went out on Monday and shot through some brambles and tore the lens in one eye, vet decided it would be best to take his eye out Just wondered if he'll mange perfectly well with just one
Antone know how a dog copes with one eye??

Current thoughts on dogs
is that they rely on scent far more than eye-sight, though he/she may have to relearn depth perception.
It'll soon get used to it and adapt. My cat lost an eye after scrapping with a squirrel and coped just fine. Still climbed trees etc.
was quite worried when I heard and then saw him today, seems to be ok at the minute
Beauty of dogs
is that whether you like them or not, they have this uncanny ability to live life in 'half full' mode.
I'm sure he'll be fine - even if he has to re-adjust his depth of field perception.... (bump...)
Non-human animals have a wonderful way of just pressing on regardless, coping with whatever they've got, and not moping. Who knows how their minds work, but I suspect it won't even miss it/ remember anything is wrong after a bit of time passes.
**Doesn't seem to bother him too much, **
but he has to stay indoors for a bit. He's a bit of a hunter so not sure he will feel the same when he goes for a walk.
That's how the silly mutt lost it in the first place, chasing something he was never going to catch and didn't look where he was going
Unlike humans in the animal world they learn quickly to overcome and conquer.
I have a one eyed squirrel which visits my garden and is able to out perform a two eyed squirrel in a chase.
assumption is the mother of all f*** ups.
he will be fine then,
Aren't we just a soft lot
just a quickie for Vulc on his dog
it looks like you had a Westie in the photo.
My mum lost her last Labrador in October, and is missing the company of a dog as she lives on her own. At the minute she has to hang fire as she isn't very well and not sure what hospital stays she has in front. But if everything turns out ok she wanted a Westie or a Pug, (I know what your thinking about a pug!!)
What are the Westie temperaments, and are they ok with other dogs. She is 77 next week and fairly fit (she still manages to go swimming every day) would it be ok for her .
If she gets the all clear I would love to surprise her with a new friend but would like some feed back
Sorry not very bike friendly
just the info I needed, I'll tell her tomorrow, No more health problems than a pug if not slightly less.
Not sure about the heat tho my mums house is always warm.
Still plenty of time to decide yet thanks
she only wants a female
and when we know if she is going to be able to have another dog I'll have a good look.
I have to be aware that my Mum won't live forever and the implications of having another dog with me if the unfortunate was to happen has to be dealt with, that's why I need a breed that will be ok with mine.
eye have no idea.....
it will probably bark up the wrong tree at first, and he'll feel a little ruff for a day or two, or maybe paws for thought before chasing that cat, but he'll be charging around like a mad, well dog, pretty soon.............as long as he can still lick his nuts, he'll be fine!
what did i say

in hand compliment.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
