Marley is my sisters dog, he is now 12 years old and went blind when he was just 2 from a rare genetic disorder, he eventually had to have his eyes removed. My sister, although devastated in the beginning decided to treat him as if he had sight, just like any other dog. To this day he still runs like the wind - using his nose for guidance and, although he often goes straight into a tree or brick wall that has never encouraged him to slow down! He dives into the river to retrieve sticks and has the happiest nature and waggiest tail you could wish for in any dog . His joy and enthusiasm for life has never left him, a true inspiration. Long may Marley inspire us to make the most of what we got!
