JJ's Story
We adopted JJ, also known as Juba, when he was 2 years old. He was going to be put to sleep because his owners didn't want him. We wanted to give him a better life and lots of love. We love him so much and he has given us so much happiness in our lives. JJ, is 9 year old Cocker Spaniel. He traveled with us from New York to Florida, which now we live in. Around September 2011, we started seeing that JJ started having problems with his vision. He started to bump into walls and objects around the house so we decided to take him to a pet specialist. On November 30, 2011, we took JJ to Animal Eye Associates, P.A. located in Maitland, FL and the pet specialist, Heidi M. Denis, diagnosed JJ with hypermature cataracts on both eyes. He also was diagnosed with Stromal Keratitis (mild). His cataracts spread throughout his eyes very quickly, it was a matter of 2 months. He used to be a very energetic dog and now he only wants to be under our car and lays there for hours. He's very scared to go outside and he feels very lost. We love our dog we just can't afford the pre-surgical evaluation and the cataract surgery he has to get. We would like for him to able to see again. In the attempt of finding ways for him to make him happy even though he lives blind, we found this poem that broke our hearts:

I cannot see you Mommy, when you cuddle me so near.
And yet I know you love me, it's in the words I hear.
I cannot see you Daddy, when you hold me by your side
But still I know you love me when you tell me so with pride.
I cannot see to run and play out in the sun so bright
For here inside my tiny head it's always dark as night.
I cannot see the treats you give when I am extra good
But I can wag my tail in Thanks just like a good dog should.
"She cannot see. The dogs no good" is what some folks might say
"She can't be trained, she'll never learn She must be put away."
But not you, Mom and Daddy You know that it's alright
Because I love you just as much as any dog with sight.
You took me in, you gave me love and we will never part
Because I'm blind with just my eyes, I see you in my heart.

Every donation counts toward JJ's Cataract Surgery. Thank you all so much - Mosquera Family.
