Naya (Chocolate Lab)

contest winner icon

Naya is a 10 week old chocolate Lab. We had the pick of the litter and we chose her. We visited her weekly, she was the runt of the litter. When the other puppies eyes opened, hers did not. She went to the vet, was given a prescription of eye drops, and they were told to massage the eyes. Her eyes still didn't open, and it was beginning to look like maybe they weren't fully developed. We had already fallen in love with her, and decided to adopt her anyway.

She went to our vet after we brought her home, and she is blind. What "eye" she does have, there isn't much there. But, other than that she is a healthy, beautiful chocolate Lab! At 10 weeks, she knows the commands "sit", "come", "down" and "stop". She also know the command "careful" means she is going to run into to something. She is learning "No bite"! We have scented our back door, and she is pretty much housetrained. She has "mapped out" our house now, and doesn't bump into things, unless you have moved something! She knows where her bowls are, where all her toys are, and how to find and torment her older sister "Bella", a 5 year old black Lab! She has been an absolute joy and we are so thankful she came into our lives!

She loves to go to the field, where big sister "Bella" plays Frisbee. She has lots of room to run safely. She runs right to us when we tell her "Come Naya!" When she gets close to us, running all out, we give the command "Stop". She stops immediately, and sits or lays down. She is such an intelligent girl!

Her favorite indoor play is her ball that has a bell in it. She always finds it somehow, and brings it back to me to throw it again. She sleeps and constantly plays with her new fluffy, soft stuffed dog "Puppy". Her favorite stuffed toy that is the same size as her. Big toys are easier for her to find!

Your story of Naya is heartwarming and I enjoyed reading about her. I sense you've given a lot of attention and time to Naya and she's come through with flying colors. I'm very happy for Naya. The easy adjustment she's made because of your thoughtful ways of helping her has made her one happy girl.

I hope that you know how wonderful you are for accepting her as she is instead of rejecting her because of her disability. Which does not seem to be much of a disability for her. She's so cute. You are both lucky. Lucky isn't really the right word, but I hope you know what I mean.
