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?

Mocha caught a fly today!

There was a fly buzzing around mocha's head, I watched him sitting very still and following it around with his head, listening, He suddenly lunged out at the fly and caught it....! His senses must be really sharp to be able to do that! If i hadn't seen it with my own eyes I wouldn't have believed it. I think a sighted dog would have a job doing that! He is just amazing!!


  1. Wow, that is certainly a skill. Good for you Mocha! T-Rex my Rat Terrier is good at getting those pesky flies, but he is not always accurate.

  2. Not sure if it was skill, Probably just lucky, but he looked very pleased with himself and I was very proud of him...:-) not too pleased about him eating it though.

  3. This is so cool and encouraging! I'm from the blind dogs list and my Snickers who is 99% blind can still catch cicada's out of the air in the dark! Dogs are amazing! She is having her eyes removed due to pain tomorrow and I think she will be a new dog!

  4. Cyndi,
    Thank you for visiting our blog.
    You are right they really are amazing.
    Wishing you and Snickers all the best for tomorrow and hope she recovers quickly.
