Duke has been doing well on homemade diet. We knew he had cataracts and on Tuesday he went blind. He was having a hard time getting around the backyard but today he started following the fence line which brings him back to the door. It hurts to get that blank stare from him but he still seems to be happy. He got really excited when he went to the vets yesterday. The vet said he wouldn't be a good candidate for cataract surgery because he's diabetic and the tumor on his liver. He says if Duke is doing good it's better to leave it and not put him through the stress of surgery. He said the tumor is very large and doesn't think Duke will live past 4 months. Whether he has 4 months or 4 yrs. I' just going to enjoy what time i have left with him.
