Default A Dog's Seeing Eye Dog

Lily is a Great Dane that has been blind since a bizarre medical condition required that she have
Both eyes removed. For the last 5 years, Madison , another Great Dane, has been her sight.
The two are, of course, inseparable.

My neighbor fostered, then eventually adopted a smaller version of your Lily. Her name is Abby and she is not a Dane but is still a large dog (white with black spots). She too, is blind but does have her eyes. It doesn't seem to bother her a bit. They go for walks and she comes up to you for her pat on the head and knows just where to go and when to stop. Must be the scent.

What a touching story. Animals learn to adapt to whatever comes their way.
