Lil Angel: Blind Dog's Family Invents A Bumper Collar For Him So He Doesn't Run Into Things

July 27, 2015


Meet Buddy. Buddy is a 13+ year old chihuahua who has gone almost completely blind in recent months. Buddy lost his confidence to get around without running into things and his owners had to carry him everywhere. Then they invented this bumper collar so Buddy can feel his way around the house without directly running into things. Now he's got his confidence back. You know, I could really use one of these for late night trips to the bathroom, because I run into a LOT of stuff. One time I even ran into the refrigerator and wound up taking a ham and turkey sandwich back to bed.

Keep going for a video of Buddy in action.

    I do have pets. I just said that this dog and the breed is ugly and annoying. And I've had pets that we kept alive and in pain too long.. Now I realize it wasn't worth it letting them suffer that long. It's just an Internet comment. Relax

    do you have to repeat everything your parents say to you?

    Man, that's pretty sad. He must have lost his hearing too because he could not really even get the direction of her voice either. Kind of on the fence about this - seems more selfish on the part of the owners when the pet is so old and has completely lost vital senses to having his age unnaturally extended. I have seen young dogs running around that lost limbs but could see, taste, hear - etc. but this is not like that. I don't see me doing this even for my own beloved pets but to each is own - they are after all pets and not humans.

    I don't believe this dog has given up on life yet. Pets let you know when they have given up. That's when it's time to let them go. Not before.

    Amen. people tend to look at things only through their own lens and forget that the animal has an even more important lens.
