CATARACT

Today we take Bug up to see the eye specialist. The news is not good. Bug has cataracts, which should be considered hereditary. Surgery would be nearly $3000, dog would not be showable or breedable. The doctor strongly suggests sending pup back to breeder. Without surgery, eyes will look like this. Bug will end up blind, like this photo.
