Astrid: Blind, Deaf, and Loving Life

Astrid, the blind, deaf dog extraordinaire.

I wanted to try a Wordless Wednesday post for tomorrow morning (it’s Tuesday night now), but Astrid deserves a little explanation. My incredibly inspiring friend is adopting her despite the following:

  • She is completely blind.
  • She is completely deaf.
  • She is about 13.
  • She has a rare, incurable cancer.

And Astrid is a totally pleasant and loving little being, who cruises around like she owns the world, despite the following:

  • All of the above.
  • She was found wandering in a park, close to death.
  • She has to learn new surroundings by bumping her head into things.

I mean this is a happy dog. And a very lucky one. Here she is cuddling away in a new bed and sweater today.
