Hi! I've been searching the web to learn all I can about cockapoos in general, and blind dogs in particular. I'll be bringing my new cockapoo home next Tuesday. She is 10 years old and blind. Her eyes have been removed. We don't have any medical history to know details. She was a much loved pet of an elderly lady who has had to move into assisted living, so surrendered her to my rescue group. I'm so happy she hasn't been abused. She is a very happy dog, and I want to make sure I do my best for her. If anyone can share some advice, I'll appreciate it very much!

Hi Suze - what a lovely story and Bette (hope this is right as says so in your favourite names at the top) will have a great new life with you. Looking forward to reading how you get on. Good luck for Tuesday :)

Wonderful news for you and your cockapoo. Sounds like she has had some tough times in her life, but I am sure she is heading for the best-ever home, with all the love she needs. Feel quite emotional for her and you:) Warm wishes, and good luck with your new little dog.

hi
just to say
my dog which is a bichon has been blind since she was 6 years old, she is now 15 and her being blind has not made her any different from when she was younger, she is still the same but not so fast and she bumps in to things but this does not make her do any less then before.
she still loves her walks and loves to play with my mums dog who is only 6 years old.
i am looking at getting a cockapoo for us to have because we would like another dog and cockers seem to be the one we have gone for this time.
im sure you are going to do fine, the dog will adapte.
forgot to say my dog is deaf too, so not much she can do but smell her way around.
all the best
mandy

Wow. Thank you all so much, but I'm not special, I think the special one will be Bette, she's so happy, and she doesn't seem to think she has any limitations at all. I'm probably worrying more than necessary--but I have to learn not to leave the dyson out and that kind of thing will post pictures next week. :D

Just noticed most everyone who posted replies here are in UK. Makes me homesick. Was born there, brought up in NY, have been back for many visits, but wish it was permanent. Originally from Kent. It's lovely to "hear" the accents in your postings.

Miss Davis is ready for her closeup! --Old film joke--
She is doing very well, except just deafened me. I read on a blind dog site that the 'babble ball' is a great toy as they can follow the sound. She does, and she learned straight away that she can keep it babbling by barking at it. From now on she gets it when I'm going out!!

By the way--very jealous of your good weather. We're having sleet at the moment!
