Anyway....Jake (dd) For those of you who don't know us,
Jake posed for the lip testing photo's on www.petdiabetes.com site
He is coming up to his 5th year anniversary in August and is
He's is still a very happy boy despite going blind in December 2004.
He's a smart boy too and soon learned how to cope with his vision loss.
The ophthalmologist thought his cataracts were age rather than diabetes
related since his sight loss has been very gradual (3yrs +)
He can see variations in light but that is all....
He had Horners syndrome last year but that spontaneously reverted
He seems to losing muscle around his back end though...
I guess he is getting old now *sighs*
I am keeping busy...full time job, part time degree..
head cook and bottle washer n all that! Lol
I'll try not to leave it so long before posting again :-)
