Welcome to our "dog blog"

Mocha and Latte are brother and sister Chihuahua's. Mocha is totally blind from an accident when he was only 6 months old. He got his head jammed in a door when he lived with his previous owner. He had brain damage which caused the blindness and also misshaped his jaw. He had his left eye removed a few months later. So far his right eye is healthy but blind. I am hoping this blog will be of some help to other owners of blind dogs. Mocha has taught us so much all ready!

Living life on the edge

Living life on the edge
Mocha likes to sit in high places so he can "see" things better...:-) Or he just likes to live dangerously?

Getting ready to go out.

I made these harnesses for them because I could not find anything on the market that I thought was safe or secure enough, especially for Mocha. With this harness I could lift him off the ground in an emergency without hurting him. They are made of soft leather with wool fleece lining and do up with velcro.
As you can see in the video clip they have learnt to almost put them on themselves:-) They are sooooo clever!!
