I'm sorry Sally not the news you wanted to hear.

I do not believe the Vet say's that to everyone! He can see Myrtle's confidence has changed since she first started to lose her sight! He can see the relationship and trust between you & Myrtle!

I think you both need a little time to adjust and I have no doubt you both will. You will learn not to stop before she knocks you over, please! I worry about all three of you!

Sending lots of love & strength to you three!
❤️❤️❤️

I am going to third that motion! I know for sure doctors don't just say that. Been on that road with furbabies and their humans. Docs don't say that unless it is sincere ((((hugs))))  I am sorry, I know that is not the news you wanted. On the brighter side, it sounds like you are both adjusting to your new normal, and adjusting really well from the sound of it. 

Sending you the hugest of hugs and lots of loveheart

Sally, you and your dogs are truly blessed to have formed the pack you have.  You guys just keep taking care of each other (do you have a "Service People" vest?).

Sally, I am so sorry you are having to deal with so much! My heart goes out to you!

And no, the vet wouldn’t say that to anyone unless they mean it! Myrtle trusts you beyond words and it obviously shows!! Please don’t doubt anything you are doing for your babies! You are doing everything in your power to take the very best care of them and each one of us wish we could take away a little bit of your stress from you! If only we could!

when i left my slippers at the end of Spike’s couch, HE DID FALL OVER THEM!! Don’t feel so bad Sally, ‘cause I am far worse! Myrtle will cart him and correct herself, she has four legs, you however only have two and may not be able to catch yourself... please do be careful Sally, we do worry about you!

We very much appreciate you too Sally, lean on us when you need!

Much Ruv to you all 

Petra, Stewie and his full Kittens

Sally, sweetheart 💖

I am so sorry to hear the news ...

But as all others said (and as you know full well) Myrtle's trust in you is unconditional.

You are her guiding light, your love shines brighter than the sun so she feels safe and nothing will change that.

I love the way you "laugh it out" if a little accident happens and she wags her tail and whatever happened becomes totally unimportant.

It is heartwarming to witness your love for her and hers for you 💗🏹

And let's not forget Angel Happy Hannah is there too 💕🕊💕

Sending you all my love, sugar bun and a zillion kisses to Myrtle and Frankie 😘😘😘🐮💫✨🌟🌹

Merry Myrtle don't need no stinkin' eyesight to find her Starbucks Puppacino 😎

I know in her mind's eye she can "see" herself  pulling up to the Starvucks' window and "see" them prepare her Puppacino .   

Got a "warm fuzzy" breakthrough today

If I just looked at Merry Myrtle and smiled, she ALWAYS wagged!  Her wagging tail was her way of smiling back😊 She doesn't wag as much anymore

You'll see her "study my face" as I'm  talking to her at the end of the video.  I know in her mind`s eye she can "see" me smile   at her and is remembering  what that looks like😊   I always make sure I have a smile in my voice  and a huge smile on my face when I talk to her so she can FEEL it, thus  "see" it.  

What you can't  see, is that her tail was wagging!  Of course,  it was probably  because  she wanted more whip cream, vut I'll take it!

Buahahaha! What a beautiful looking girl you are Merry Myrte!!!! I am in love with your tongue 👅! You know what Mum smiles like and you know you don’t need bloomin eyes to know that she is grinning from ear to ear watching you enjoy that Puppacine right down to the last window ledge drop!!! Ha!

Thanks for this super duper treat update on Myrtle Sally! I do hope Frankie got double portions for not being there with you! How is our beautiful brown eyed beauty doing?

many hugs and much love coming your way Sally!!!

HAHA! Thanks Petra! I love her slurping sounds too!  Yeah, she kmow how to slobber and slurp at the same time!😃

Believe it or  not, Frankie doesn't really like Starvucks.  But he never misses an opportunity  to get in the trash and eat garbage!  

I know I need to update on Frankie.  Just trying  to get clear on what path Im going to  take now  since it's  unclear what's  going on and rest and meds arent making any improvements.  He still counter surfs and that makes me happy😁

Love you!💟

Darling Sally, you never NEED to do anything my lovey except what is necessary to you! The fact that Frankie is being Frankie and is surfing his counter, then I think the beaches has better clear the way ‘cause Frankie Dawg is coming through!!! 

Sometimes forward is not a straight line and it is not always in the ‘forward motion’! Right!?! We all face these moments with our fur babies when we need to step back and reevaluate things. Know that we are with you and Frankie and Myrtle and keep you close to our hearts! We just need a fix of your beautiful fur babies every now and again! Thanks for taking care of mine! 😉

Ruv ya!

Sally,

I am so so glad that you got to take Myrtle for her pupachino.  She loves those.  I know she can still "see" you.  She knows you love her with all your soul

I know I saw how much she trusted you when we were on vacation.  She knows her surroundings and knows if there is something that shouldn't be there.  Keep breathing.  We are here with you  🙂

Oh that video made my heart smile! zero hesitation, straight into hyper-slurp mode! 

She does trust you, completely and that will not change. She's only going to get better and better adapted to her current conditions. I love how she looks at you just the same - she hears your smile no question.

and Petra I love the "forward is not a straight line" - it's so apt for just for dogs but humans too. "Normal" life is absolutely not a straight line.

I had to educate my local coffee shop about puppacinos - the girl was so charmed by the idea that she got Roxy's puppacino but forgot my coffee! 

Big hugs to you and Frankie and Myrtle!

love

That's a HUGE sign that she is finding her groove Sally! You are doing everything pawsible to normalize life for her now and this is a biggie. Knowing that she can still go out and have the puppachino's on a beautiful sunny day like that clearly lifts her spirits. I loved seeing this! And I do believe I saw a bit of a butt-shake while she was licking the cup clean. Beautiful!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™
