I recently received a wonderful update from Cassie B. in Montana, who adopted a delightful little blind girl from us many years ago. We had named her Nevada because she came from a shelter in that state, and here is our blog post from 2007 announcing her arrival and how she came to us. (Note there is a video in that post that no longer works.) Cassie adopted her later than year, and renamed her Bindi. Here’s an earlier update from Cassie on Bindi.
In this most recent update, Cassie wrote:
“I am attaching a fairly recent photo of Bindi—I can’t believe how “grown up” she is compared to the photos of when she first came to Rolling Dog. It’s hard to believe she is almost 9-years-old! In spite of the gray muzzle, she is doing GREAT, and is such a sassy-pants. She is still in charge of everybody. Our 4-legged head count is currently at four, and Bindi has become the matriarch, which suits her. She expects everyone to cater to her, including her humans. Because of our amazing vet, Bindi’s seizures are completely under control and she is in great health. She tears around the yard, climbs up & down the stairs, jumps on the couch—all with the confidence & skill of a sighted dog. We are always in awe of her ability to memorize her surroundings.
Bindi’s favorite ‘job’ is to come with me to get the mail at our mailbox every day. Without even having to put her on leash, I just click to her and she follows me to the edge of the yard and waits while I get the mail. She loves getting out of the backyard for these little excursions, and I think it’s good for her mind and her self-confidence. 🙂
We are more in love with sweet Bindi than we were when we first brought her home from Rolling Dog all those years ago. We continue to be SO grateful to Dara for saving Bindi from the shelter, and to you & Alayne for giving her the second chance she needed. She is proof that the work you & Alayne have done makes a difference in the lives of both dogs AND people!”
Thank YOU, Cassie!
