On November 3rd, Little Blind Billy had both of his eyes removed. For those of you who do not know, Billy's eyes did not fully develope in the womb. They were an infection waiting to happen. In lieu of flushing them daily, and worrying about infection, the eye-specialist suggested they be removed. I agreed.

My heart is so very full of love for this little guy. He is my Hero. I wanted to share this picture with you. This was a day or so after surgery. He's my little trooper. God Bless this little guy, who is so full of life, and has so very much love to give, even hours after surgery. I am so proud of him.

Yes he does. His eyes are healing nicely, though. Soon the hair will grow back and down his little face. I thought of getting the glasses with eyeballs in them

God bless that sweet Billy! I have to say that picture freaks me out a bit but Billy's spirit is so strong that I still feel his personality.....Can they put in artificial eyes now? I know they have them for humans but I don't know if they do for animals. Or does that create a whole other set of problems?

Pico and I wish a fast recovery for Billy and we both send hugs and kisses.

He has been so brave. Not a peep out of him. He is now, semi, out of confinement, and playing with Big Butt Henry, his bestest friend

Oh, thank you so much I must say though, this little guy has brought so much love and entertainment to my life. I remember when he first came to my house, from rescue. I thought "What in the world am I going to do with this blind puppy?" Within the hour, I knew the answer. KEEP HIM!! He won my heart...
