If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you are well aware that our sweet little long-haired weiner is blind. One day over a year ago, she went blind. Very sad. It's been sort of a benefit because she is no longer obsessed with lights like she used to be. It's not so much a benefit when she STILL does naughty things and gets lost in the house. Or because she has gained so much weight she gets tired walking across the house and just lies down more than half way to her destination.
This was the case the other night. Brian & I were ready to head to bed so we start whistling, calling Lucy and clapping. Standard ways to call the blind mouse. She gets going in the direction of our bedroom.
Then just stops.
And lies down.
Literally, too tired to go on.
Do other dogs do this? Or is it just over-weight, blind dachshunds?
BTW... I think I may be swaying one way to the sex of the new baby! Just FOUR days until we find out! CAN.NOT.WAIT!
