I'm Not Crying, You're Crying: Dog Who Regained Eyesight After Surgery Sees His Family For The Second Time

June 16, 2014


WARNING: Loud baby talk. Turn the volume and try to tel to convince yourself you don't sound the exact same when you talk to your dog.

This is a video of Duffy the Irish Terrier getting to see his family for the second time. Duffy lost his eyesight to diabetes, then regained it through surgery. He is a happy dog. Me? I am a sad hamster. I just found out the wheel I've been running in doesn't actually go anywhere. I did five miles in that f***er last night and got out to the same food bowl and poop pile in the corner. That was a cruel trick.

Keep going for your feel-good video of the day.

Thanks to Diane, who told me she is a cat person. Whoa, DO YOU HAVE A TAIL?!

    Ugh. Those high-pitched baby voices. I wish only dogs could hear at that frequency.

    Anthropomorphism on so many levels... think about this story as;
    “Dog Who Regained Sense of Smell After Surgery...” and then go baaw ;__;

  • Cup-O-Jesus

    Anthropomorphism is the projection of human attributes to a non-human. The only description of the dog's attributes was "He is a happy dog." which is attributing emotions to a dog. Therefore, to call the article anthropomorphic is to state that humans have emotions and dogs don't, a belief that has been disproved multiple times, by many scientific studies and countless times by my three Wire Fox Terriers. Therefore, your statement is fucking ignorant.

  • Corky McButterpants

    Your understanding would seem as limited as your vocabulary. My problem is the assumption that a dog's separation anxiety is perceived to be joy at regaining, what is basically, a second-tier sense...

    Perhaps your vile avatar could have you with a foot in your mouth; instead of a todger

  • Guest

    Also having said all that, yes those women and their squealing is insufferable. Are insufferable? Damn my limited grammar!

  • Cup-O-Jesus

    Thanks for clarifying. It's not the emotion that is at question, it's the cause. So your premise is that the dog's agitated emotional state is a result of separation anxiety, not joy at recovering sight. That makes more sense, but
    a. since you don't conclusively know the dog's state of mind it's all conjecture.
    b. You label vision a second tier sense in dogs. It may not be the most critical sense but claiming an understanding of how important vision is to a dog's mind is also an assumption.
    Since you have no definitive proof, your statement of "fact" that this is Anthropomorphism is in fact opinion as much as those who are convinced of the dog's vision-restoration-based happiness.
    Also, since you used the word "baaw" followed by an emote, I believe the purpose of your post is simply to shit on veryone's good time, AKA squelcher or buzz kill, trying to be a spoiler for some harmless feel-good internet candy.

    Additionally, that's not me in my avatar, it's my daughter and I'll thank you not to mention her again. OK just kidding she's not my daughter, I bought her at a bus station. Well not so much bought as lured. And by lured I mean dragged. And by bus station I mean pre-school. Speaking of vocabulary nice use of “todger”, you just don’t hear that enough over here.

    I have some wood that needs to be chopped, ya know, since you don't have anything else to do....

  • Cup-O-Jesus

    I am in a position where I cannot leave my location and don't have much to do, so I stay sharp with debate and shooting down trolls. You on the other hand can leave anytime and meet people, go to a park, play with a dog, see a show, play music, build sand castles, go for a drive, get in a fight, chop wood, hike, ride a bike, people watch at the mall...
    and you spend time in debate with assholes like me. You sir are the one wasting time.
    Also you're supposed to say "nice story bro".

    Also having said all that, yes those women and their squealing is insufferable. ...are insufferable? Damn my limited grammar!

  • jeffrey jakubowski

    Ugh, I hate dog owners and their "babies"

  • Seth

    Well, you're a douche, so there's that.

  • Joe Ferschke

    I hate humans and their smug sense of self importance.

  • Ricardo Grassa

    I love this sentence.

  • GreyMatter

    "try to convince yourself you don't sound the exact same when you talk to your dog"...probably, if I was a 40 year old woman...but I'm not!

  • Johnny Bigrig

    A warning of all the over-the-top, shrill baby voices would have been nice.
    (oops, there it is)

    gw you ran too far, the whole world is only 5 miles around
