We got Walter and his sister Duchess about 6 months after I lost my shadow dog Sparky. Kelly and Jeff first came home with Duchess and she was so sad by herself they went back and got her brother Walter. It's a good thing they did because Duchess was pretty much blind. Vet said about 20% sight and she needed her seeing eye dog Walter. Duchess passed away about 2 years ago. Walter had been sad since. He was always overweight because he loved food. All the time. He knew exactly what time to get up for breakfast, he would bark at snack times and he would bark for dinner. He lived a good life even though he only had one eye for most of it. (That was due to a golf ball accident in 2004.)
RIP Walter. We loved you so much. I know you knew it. You loved us too.
