On September 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.

How is he adjusting over there with your other dogs? Also, how is he getting around? Do you have to monitor him all the time? He's such a brave little soul. I'm sure the happiest times in his life will be spent loving you and your family. =] My heart goes out to you and Billy. Keep us posted on 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:

You have a wicked sense of humor....I like that in a person!!!!


I'm glad you came into Billy's life, he's one special, lucky malt. And you are truly his guardian angel on earth. Well Done 3MM! My hat is off to you (well, it would be if I wore a hat. How about his >>>
I'll take the bag off. Hmmm, that starts a whole different thing and no, I don't wear a bag on my head. I think I should shut up while I'm behind. :D )

Hope Billy has a very quick and comfortable recovery.
Keep us posted. He one brave, special malt.

Rose - A co-worker told me to get eyes at the craft store. The kind that have the black ball that moves around. He said to double-stickey tape them on Billy's head :eek:

I don't wear a hat either, but once my ex-husband told me to put a bag over my head. The stupid Jerk....

Billy gets around like you wouldn't believe. He has my house memorized by now. He runs, plays and chews, just like the rest. Many people cannot believe he is blind. If I move furniture or leave the hall closet door open, he will bash into that.

Leaving the TV on really helps him. I felt so bad the other day, I had the TV on and he kept walking into it. He's never done this before. I realized I had the surround sound on and not the TV sound. Billy could only hear the sound from the ceiling. Poor baby...

Debbie, well Billy called Sassy this morning and I was not going to say anything, but.....from what I gathered just from Sassy's side of the conversation this is what little Billy boy is thinking.

Sassy, first she had my balls cut off, and now she had my eyeballs removed. I don't know Sassy....what do you think? Sassy said..................Billy, her wubs you! Billy said, I am so glad, 'cause if she didn't there ain't NOOOOOOOOO telling what she would cut off next. I think I need my pee'er.

Just letting you know what the kids are talking about when you are at work. Have a nice day Deb!


p.s. correct the surgery date
We love you




Gottcha!! :D

Oh, what a precious angel you have! I remember reading about when Billy first came to live with you, and then when you decided to keep him! What a wonderful and happy story. I am glad he is doing so well and that the surgery was a success. He certainly is a brave little boy! Hugs and kisses from Tavish and I!

What a blessed little boy he is .... to have found his way to your home and heart!
My sister's neighbor had to have her pooch's eyes removed as she was blind but was startting to get pain. (otherwise a healthy pooch) That was several years ago and she did beautifully!
I know it is a much better option than risk the infections and associated pain that could occur. Once the healing has completed and the hair grown back.. I think it will he will absolutely HANDSOME!!!

What a trooper Billy is. You are such a Godsend to the maltese and doggy world Debbie. Billy couldn't have ended up in a better house.

I was reading along teary eyed drinking my tea until I read this then just about spewed my monitor with tea. LMAO

Oh Crap!! What's the difference between two weeks or two months?? - LOL

Did anyone else wonder why the healing process was taking soooo long? - ROFLMAO

And yes, you tell Sassy, ALL of Billy's balls have now been removed. However, his senses are VERY powerful...oooooh la la!!
