Special Needs Pet Feature: Cassidy

What is your pet's name? 

How old is your pet? 
1 1/2 years old

Where did you get your pet? 
A lady contacted me and said, one of her dachshund puppies was born blind and asked if I would take it, because they wouldn't be able to sell her like that.  They bred to dapples together and that is the result.
37 (1)

What is your pet's physical challenge?  
Completely blind.

What is your pet's favorite thing to do? 
She likes to play with her siblings, go for car rides and play at the bike trail.

What is your pet's favorite thing to eat? 
Pumpkin or Peanut Butter Frozen Yogurt Cubes.
What do you love most about your pet?  
She is VERY loving and VERY brave.

What has your pet most taught you? 
That you don't have to be perfect....that you don't have to see love, to feel it.  And that a disability doesn't have to hinder you, from living and loving life.

Anything else you'd like to share? 
Cassidy is quite an inspiration.  Everyone that meets her, cannot believe she is even blind....she is courageous, outgoing and loves everyone....yes, I think she is amazing! 
Such beautiful, beautiful photos of darling, Cassidy!  I'm so glad you shared her with me and my readers.
