The Story Of A Blind Golden Retriever Puppy, Ray Charles

07 Jul 2016 | by Prekshita Patwa | Posted in: Wag News

Ray Charles the Golden Retriever was born blind in December 2012. After reading his story you'll understand how nothing in life is worth giving up. There is always a chance to live life to the fullest and enjoy it the way it is. This little ball of fur teaches us lessons beyond our own understanding. Have a look:

Ray was the only boy in a litter of three puppies, and when he wasn’t running around playing with his sisters like a normal pup, his breeder took him to the vet and found out he was blind.

The breeder didn’t expect to find a home for a blind dog and considered putting him down, but when Andrew Fales heard about the pup, he dubbed him Ray Charles and took him home to live with his other three golden retrievers.

Once Ray was adopted, his new dad took him to Angell Memorial Hospital in Boston where they found out that, while Ray’s eyes function fine, there’s a disconnect between them and his brain which prevents him from seeing.

That doesn’t slow him down,though. Ray runs and plays in Boston, MA with his big brothers, Harley and Jack, and big sister, Maggie.

According to his Facebook page, “I believe I was born the way I was so that I could help inspire others who are born with physical/mental disabilities to always live their lives to the fullest and do as much as they can with what they are given.”

In an interview: 

If you could be any dog for a day, who would it be?

I would be myself, but would have eyes that worked so I could see the world I live in.

We see you like to dress up. What’s your outfit of choice?

I like to wear hats and glasses the most, but the onesie I wore when I was a baby was really comfy.
