Believe It or Not!
Milo & … Eddie?
Eddie is a black lab mix that ADORES his brother Milo. Without Milo, Eddie wouldn’t be able to get around. Eddie started having issues with his sight and went blind about a year ago.
Milo and Eddie have a very strong bond. Before Eddie went blind, he and Milo were the best of puppy friends, romping it up in the woods, playing fetch, chasing after toys….
When Eddie went blind, Milo stepped up to the task of guiding Eddie without any training.
Today, you can see Milo leading Eddie on a leash, and acting as his eyes when he plays in the lake (see video posted at the top of the blog). Milo also wears a bell on his collar so Eddie can easily find him.
Lost and Found
The dogs’ owner, Ms Baker-Stedham, says Eddie would lost without Milo:
“Milo really cares for Eddie, he always licks his face, they sleep in the same room and spend all their time together. Without Milo, Eddie would be lost.”
Eddies’ reliance on Milo became very apparent when Milo had to stay overnight at the vet while undergoing treatment for anaemia.
Ms Baker-Stedham said Eddie he kept bumping into walls and couldn’t find his way around. Luckily Milo is back home, safe and sound and caring for his brother.
