Watson, our blind Golden Retriever puppy, was born July 12. About the time his eyes opened, we noticed Watson was acting funny, and took him to an animal eye doctor. Watson’s eyes are OK, but the circuitry to his brain is not. Watson is blind due to hydroencephaly from an infection or virus in the womb. It turns out that sight is not a dog’s main sense, and already Watson is adapting well. We see him as a sign of hope for all of us who are less than perfect.
