I am deeply saddened to have lost one of the wonderful dogs that I walk, my beloved Peanut, pictured above. She was a feisty Chihuahua and despite being 85% blind, she didn’t let that stop her! At 16 years old she loved her walks right up until the very end. Peanut was small in size but big in spirit. She’s in a happy place now, in puppy heaven with her sweet brother Gordy. Love & miss you, Peanut. XOXO
Meet Smiley, the blind therapy dog who was rescued from a puppy mill and trained to be a St. John Ambulance therapy dog for seniors and children with disabilities. Smiley was born without eyes and has dwarfism, making him smaller than most dogs of his breed, but that hasn’t stopped him from spreading hope and smiles everywhere he goes! Check out Smiley’s story here.

Munchkin the Shih Tzu isn’t your average dog.
Actually, she’s almost more bear than she is dog!
Her owner Cindy Roth did the greatest thing anyone could’ve ever done… she dressed her pup up like a teddy bear!
Munchkin is so impossibly cute as a teddy bear it almost hurts to look at her.
When Skylar the Whippet’s parents went on vacation, they left her in the hands of a dog sitter named James. James filmed the two of them together as the bonded, played and had fun. What he filmed was really awesome. Skylar’s parents had no idea until James sent them the video!
