For blind husky Mackenzie, there is no greater joy than somersaulting in a deep snowdrift.
It smells the snow on the tips of its mustache before it even leaves the porch.
When the snow melts, the dog begins to wait for the next year and the next frost. It’s funny, but as much as this husky loves snow, it also hates liquid water.
Persuading it to swim is a whole story, and you have to tempt the dog with treats to wash it after the dog playground.
Mackenzie is friendly with people. It is always ready to meet someone new.
Lack of vision does not at all prevent the dog from recognizing people: it smells the sister and brother of its owner even before they enter the house and perfectly understands when the stranger will be happy with its company.
Even without eyes, it faithfully looks at the owner when she calls it: it turns its head and smiles. Listens.
Sounds pretty creepy, but looks cute.
Mackenzie lost its sight as a puppy. When it arrived from the breeders, it already had glaucoma in one eye, but the owner hoped that the eye could be saved.
Unfortunately, the disease also affected the other eye.
Both eyeballs had to be removed surgically, and now Mackenzie looks like a smiling dog from a Japanese comic – very fitting for its character.
However, a blind husky feels like any ordinary dog.
It makes no difference to the owner either: this is her first dog, and she loves Mackenzie.
It’s just that every time they come to a new room, she shows the pet where the stairs are – and after that, she is completely calm for it: the husky uses the scent and feels the movement of air with vibrissae, so it perfectly understands when an obstacle may arise in front of it.
