Lyle Lovett Is Feelin’ The Love!

6284277[1]

Hi Angels Friends,

Remember me? It’s Lyle Lovett!

I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who donated and shared for my eye surgery. I’m a couple days out from it and feeling so much better! I have not had any complications from my surgery and the vet says that I will be right as rain very soon and ready to be adopted.

I also want to tell everybody not to be sad for me because I don’t have sight anymore. I was in a lot of pain and unable to see anyway because my eyes were too damaged when the Angels saved me.

Foster mom says that she is so proud of me for being brave and strong, and that she will find the best home in the world for me.

I’m a happy boy and am already learning how to navigate my new world with my Muffin’s Halo…I’m especially good at walking up the porch steps and finding my way around the house all by myself without bumping into things. You’d be so impressed!

I can’t wait to learn more things and know my future will be lots o’ fun with my adoptive family.

Right now I’ll just concentrate on getting well and dream about the day when I go to my forever home.

I’ll keep you updated on my journey and send to you all of the love and gratitude from the bottom of my heart! LL @ Angels Among Us Rescue

Well brave boy Lyle Lovett, thanks to Second Chances For Blind Dogs you now have a Muffin’s Halo to help you navigate into your forever home. We are so happy you are recovering well from your surgery!

Nacho’s New Lease On Life

5076699[1]

Nacho was abandoned at a clinic in South L.A with horrendous skin issues and (of course) horrible ear infections. He lived in a kennel there for almost a year until creatureKIND rescue happened to see him when picking up another dog.

They treated all his issues and continue to do so – the foster is wonderful and has helped many senior dogs over the years. It’s just hard now that Nacho is blind and he has another dog he keeps bumping into and as that dog is a puppy mill survivor it is making things difficult.

<span “font-size:11.0pt;font-family:calibri;=”” mso-ansi-language:en-us;mso-fareast-language:en-us”=””>Thanks to our contributors to Second Chances For Blind Dogs, Nacho got his Muffin’s Halo and is leading a bump free life.  His foster said “Thank you SO much for the halo for Nacho! He is more used to wearing it now and it is really helping him as far as not bumping into furniture!”

Kevan Loves His Muffin’s Halo

1807123_orig[1]

Umbrella of Hope’s blind poodle, Kevan, tried out hisMuffin’s Halo today!!! “Thank you Second Chances For Blind Dogs for sending us one!!! Kevan is from Contra Costa Animal Services.

Kevan is a 5 yr old, 14 lb Miniature Poodle (Mix?) Neutered Male. He is also microchipped, vaccinated, free of parasites and has had bloodwork and a teeth cleaning.

Kevan is blind from early-onset cataracts. He will be evaluated by the eye specialist once he gets comfortable, but it is likely that he will never see. This does not bother him. He gets along well and thinks he is “normal”… He walks well on a leash, snuggles and gets around quite well.

Kevan seems to be housebroken and crate trained. He does not bother cats and gets along well with other dogs. He is not afraid of people and really likes kids. He loves riding in the car and going for walks. He would fit well into any family who is willing to welcome him in spite of his differences. He does not feel that he has special needs, so we don’t either.”

Yay Kevan! He got his donated Muffin’s from our generous network of angels at Second Chances For Blind Dogs. Muffin’s 14th Birthday celebration campaign. Thanks to all of you who donated!

A Healthy And Happy Twinkie!

4410418_orig[1]

Twinkie is an 11-year-old poodle/shih tzu mix owner surrender … husband passed away, Twinkie was his dog and his wife is unable to keep Twinkie as she deals with other life transitions such as selling home, relocating, etc. A caring neighbor did not want to see Twinkie dropped at the shelter, which is what the owner planned to do, and reached out to the Bichon Rescue Brigade for help.

They said, “We knew going into it that Twinkie had a cataract and was vision-impaired. Imagine our surprise when we picked her up and noticed her other “good” eye bulging almost out of socket.

Twinkie’s vet made no mention of it when we contacted them, but Twinkie has not been in since last September. Apparently, this is a recent development, but now is ours to deal with. ”

Bottom line… Twinkie was completely blind in her “good” bulging eye, with extremely limited vision from the cataract eye. The vet said bulging eye was likely due to glaucoma or cancer, likely was extremely painful and recommended we remove the eye as it has no function and would continue to cause pain. So, BRB (Bichon Rescue Brigade) had Twinkie’s eye removed and she currently is recovering from the surgery and doing well.

She now just needs to find a loving home where she is loved and can return that love as she lives out her final years. You can see from the photos how much better and happier she already looks since having the surgery done!

WELL GUESS WHAT?! NOT ONLY DID TWINKIE GET A DONATED MUFFIN’S HALO THANKS TO OUR ANGEL CONTRIBUTORS OF OUR NON-PROFIT “SECOND CHANCES FOR BLIND DOGS” BUT SHE GOT A FOREVER HOME AS WELL FROM BEING POSTED ON OUR FACEBOOK PAGE. I BELIEVE SHE IS WELL ON HER WAY TO OKLAHOMA WITH HER NEW HUMOM.

THANK YOU ANGELS XO

Sochi The Superdog!

Backstory

This beautiful blind Sheltie had excessive seizures due to a  brain tumor which was removed . He is a vital part of a medical study that is creating vaccine to help treat children and dogs with brain tumors by shrinking them.

Sochi could very well be named a big hero once he has completed his part in the clinical trail in June 2016, as he could be walking around with a successfully formulated vaccine that will save many lives.

His Muffin’s Halo is especially important to him as it protects his head since his surgery. We love you Sochi!
