The site is owned by Paula Carnogoy, whose dog Lucy lost an eye to glaucoma and is blind in the second eye. “The reality,” Carnogoy stated, “is that thousands of dogs all over the world live quite happily without their vision and their owners cope very well.”
The site allows interaction on a smaller scale while allowing questions and comments on the website’s forum. The website also features a blog section, where members can post their stories.
“Our goal at www.BlindDogSupport.com, Wanda Sowden said, “is to develop a community where people with blind or visually impaired dogs can come to when they need questions answered or just a little support during a difficult time.”
