On November 3rd, Little Blind Billy had both of his eyes removed. For those of you who do not know, Billy's eyes did not fully develope in the womb. They were an infection waiting to happen. In lieu of flushing them daily, and worrying about infection, the eye-specialist suggested they be removed. I agreed.

My heart is so very full of love for this little guy. He is my Hero. I wanted to share this picture with you. This was a day or so after surgery. He's my little trooper. God Bless this little guy, who is so full of life, and has so very much love to give, even hours after surgery. I am so proud of him.

Ah, what a precious soul! He needs some really cool shades, though!

Yes he does. His eyes are healing nicely, though. Soon the hair will grow back and down his little face. I thought of getting the glasses with eyeballs in them :eek:

God bless that sweet Billy! I have to say that picture freaks me out a bit but Billy's spirit is so strong that I still feel his personality.....Can they put in artificial eyes now? I know they have them for humans but I don't know if they do for animals. Or does that create a whole other set of problems?

Pico and I wish a fast recovery for Billy and we both send hugs and kisses.

He has been so brave. Not a peep out of him. He is now, semi, out of confinement, and playing with Big Butt Henry, his bestest friend

Oh, thank you so much
I must say though, this little guy has brought so much love and entertainment to my life. I remember when he first came to my house, from rescue. I thought "What in the world am I going to do with this blind puppy?" Within the hour, I knew the answer. KEEP HIM!! He won my heart...

Awww...I don't know why, but that just made me cry. Bless his heart. I guess I'm just sad that such a sweet little guy had to go through that, but atleast he has you to love him and take good care of him. Such a brave little guy too.

While at the eye-specialist, there was an elderly gentlemen with his black Lab, he said his dog was getting a fake eye. I didn't check on it, if Billy had fake eyes that would freak me out, since he only had one little floaty eye to begin with. Can you imagine, if one fell out and Billy was running around with his eyeball in his mouth - LOL

I'll take pics this weekend, after Billy has the stiches removed. He is going to look better than ever. If not, we'll borrow Henry's shades - LOL

My Sandi cat was one-eyed. She had an eye ulcer that caused her to lose one eye. You really couldn't tell unless you looked close...but his may be different..I don't know.

I think that after all is healed, if you just let his bangs grow in he will look cool 
  When phoebe doesn't have a bow in all I can see is her nose, and I think its adorable
  she however, doesnt have Billy's talent nor his friends to help guide her around so she does not particularly care for that style

That's exactly what we are going to do. We won't have to worry about his hair getting in his eyes. He is going to be the envy of the neighborhood. As you said, he is going to look so cool. Yep, he'll be Cool Billy Boy...

Here's a pic from last February, as you can see, he didn't have much to look at then either.

When Paris' hair is not pulled up, she looks like a miniature sheep dog.
Now I will think of Billy everytime she is like that!
