Sight and Smell

My Gabriel and Bella together.

This recent photo is all the more poignant for me as I recently discovered that my little Bella is quickly losing her sight at three years old.

Re: Sight and Smell

Yes, saw the same post on our DPNow.com forum - very sad and as I said there I will ask Julia's brother - who is a vet - for any comment.

I have insurance and the first 1000 is covered although I doubt it would cover the full cost but that is of no consequence as she means more than money to us.

Re: Sight and Smell

Paul, that's a wonderfull picture and it really captures the theme of sight and smell; you have such great intuition as a photographer. I'm so sad to hear the news about Bella's sight and I do hope there is something that can be done. Let us know the outcome, I'm sure you and Bella have the good wishes of the whole forum, hoping for a cure.

Thank you John the vet phoned us late last night to let us know her blood tests are completely clear so that is good news and means it is not diabetes or other illness causing it,and I will be sure to let you know how she gets on.
