It was a little after 7:30 in the morning. I was on the phone with my BFF discussing where and when we would meet for lunch. The part of my brain that listens for unusual noises heard one. I turned to look and saw my dog at the Christmas tree. His back feet were firmly planted, his neck outstretched. Between his jaws was a string of Christmas lights. He was pulling with all his might trying to get them off of the tree. I gave an outraged howl and pried his teeth from the string, silently thanking the powers that be that the lights weren't plugged in. Ray's teeth had flattened one of the light sockets and the little glass bulb had been ejected and was laying on the carpet.
My name is Ray the Blind Dog. I'm a Redtick Coonhound that was born blind in July 2008. I'm named after my blind counterpart Ray Charles. I joined a family of 2 cats and 2 humans in June of 2009. I want to show everyone how well I get along in this world and let my friends know how I'm doing. Please feel free to add remarks or share your experiences in the comment box. We all want to know what you think.
