Sad News

With a heavy heart, I must report that we lost one of our pack last week.  I am not sure what happened, likely heart or stroke, but I was out for 5 hours and came home to find that Cognac had earned his wings.  He would have been only 6 years old later this year.  We had 4 short years with him, but he will be in our hearts always.

My long hair chocolate dapple boy (we think mixed with just a touch of terrier, likely yorkie judging by the texture of his fur)
Typical Cognac, one end barking and the other end wagging.

How do you occupy a deaf and blind dog?

This is my former foster, Lilou.  She is 12 years old. She went blind from SARDS about 4 years ago and just recently lost her hearing.  Yes, she is deaf and blind; BUT she is not handicapped.

This is Lilou's favourite game (and, yes, she has been adopted)
