Your Dillon is very lucky to have you both as owners. Good luck with the Ophthalmologist do keep us posted here on results.

You made a mistake but at the same time you probably save Dillion's life, he is in good hands now, thank you for taking care of him, he is a beautiful and happy dog now.

After reading your sweet note, I suddenly saw things quite differently. I felt joyful, and full of hope. Dogs pick up on every emotion - Dillon jumped on the sofa and started playing with Idgie and Griff the lab ran for his food bowl!!! You brought us all into joyful mode - it is wonderful to find such dear, insightful and kind people such as you - we thank you with all our hearts, canine and human alike...

We will post with updates on Dillon's prognosis and look forward to reading lots of posts, learning as much as we can, meeting wonderful people and seeing lots of happy dogs!!!

Heartbreaking! Dillon is a beautiful boy. Did your vet tell you what was happening to cause him to go blind?

You sound like wonderful people for Dillon. Since you don't have kids in the house leaving things under foot I am sure you will be able to adjust things in your home to give him a good life even if the opthalmologist can't give an optimistic prognosis. Do keep us updated.

I will say that I understand that too a point. I am concerned about finding a great breeder, but I'm not wealthy either and since I'm single and on a students income coming up with something more than $1200 for a healthy for a pet quality spoo is a bit of a reach. Especially when there are other puppy expenses so close together. I hate to be gosh about price but I have a price point being disable and a student and what I can afford. I got lucky with my Bichon when I got her 12 years ago. She was an impulse buy. Found out I was losing a pregnancy and in a moment a insanity found an ad in the paper. Quick 30 30 minute car ride, run inside the vet kama grab the check for $700, handed her send check she had me her AKC papers and the puppy and I went home two days later ended up in the hospital but I still have my baby Gracie so I think I got my money's worth in the end but I guess I got really lucky unlike a lot of people who end up with an impulse buy puppy.

The one thing that is so amazing about dogs is how they learn to adapt. I hope that you find the best for your boy, but that kind of love he will always see you.

Aren't our dogs amazing? They seem to have a 6th sense about so much! Thank you so very much for your words of encouragement - our house is happy and the dogs are happy and we have all of you dear people to thank for it. Whenever life seems tough, the things that we have to be thankful for far outweigh everything else. It's wonderful that you have your Gracie to love. I have loved the Bichon forever - :-) Adorable!!!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write and for your kind words. We will make sure Dillon gets the surgery. We're focused on that for now. Will be sure to post news this week. Take good care!!
