Lily, had to have her eyes taken out when she was two years old due to an illness. The other dog, Maddison, has guided her around for the past five years, never leaving her side.
Lily, six, was barely a puppy when she was struck down by a condition that caused her eyelashes to grown into her eyeballs, damaging them beyond repair.
It was after this traumatic event that her relationship with seven-year-old Maddison developed as she took her under her wing. The best buddies decided to continue their lives together.
Maddison is Lily’s guide dog. If they are out and about, for the majority of the time Maddison will lead and Lily will walk nearly touching her so she knows where to go. It’s lovely to watch. Maddison is always looking out for her.
With her lack of sight, Lily’s other senses have heightened so although we don’t split them up often she can tell if Maddison is nearby. They curl up together to go to sleep and they are very vocal with each other. They are very close to one another and really enjoy each other’s company.
They are really happy with life, the glass is always half full with these two. They are not gigantic when you see them outside. These are two lovely big girls who deserve to live out the rest of their lives together in comfort. They are very affectionate; no one could see them without falling in love with them. That’s so sweet!
Seeing dogs helping each other like that gives us a great example of how loyal dogs are! All dogs really deserve to be happy, safe and having a peaceful life.
