New Toy for Blind Dogs

Want to keep your blind dog entertained for hours? Introduce a fly into the house. The other day, Ray spent at least half a day trying to catch a rather large housefly buzzing around. I've never seen him so focused and determined.
I don't know if you can see them in these photos, but there are nose prints all over the glass doors. All the windows too.
I'm thinking of letting another fly in the house today just to keep Ray busy and away from my shoes.


  1. oh yeah, the blind dog v the fly, goes on in our house too, the sighted dogs don't really exert themselves for a fly but Conor will track one round the room pretty determinedly, not the best thing to have 30 kg of greyhound chasing round a small house after an even smaller quarry. But a blind hound's gotta do...etc

  2. halle could care less... my cats on the other hand go crazy.....

  3. For Roxy it's spiders!
