Lucky came into my life in a very unusual way. My Harley is 10 and my husband and I decided that is was time to start looking for another pup so Harley could teach him. I started looking online and found a pup that I was interested in. I asked what color her eyes were because Harley has a blue and a brown eye and that was what I was looking for, but the eyes on this pup were just not right. I continued scrolling and I saw him, a big white ball of fluff! As I continued to read I saw that he was a "lethal white" and was blind. For some reason I did not care that he was blind. Me, the one that was searching for the "right" color eyes! I messaged the person that was selling him and said that I wanted him. This little guy was out west and right then and there I decided that he was coming to Pennsylvania one way or another. The owner was unsure about flying him and the hassle of getting him here, but I had to have him! We eventually worked out a plan and Lucky had his first plane ride!
This boy has taught that if you can't do something one way, there is always another way. Lucky has learned all the tricks you could think of. I just had to teach him in a different way. He amazed me when it only took him a day to learn the layout of our house. He now runs through it like a maniac! When I tell the boys we are going for a ride, they go straight to the door, straight off the deck, and to the truck. I do not know how he does it, but it is awesome!
In closing, I would like to say this, please do not be afraid to adopt or rescue a dog with disabilities. It may be a little more work and mean doing things differently, but in the end they will the most loving, loyal creatures you could ever ask for. I have some disabilities of my own and Lucky has helped me to see that where this is a will, there is a way.
