I did some googling tonight hoping to find a copy of James Herriot's story
online, but I didn't have any luck.  It really is a touching true story about 
a dog that loses its vision and how the owner is distraught and calls 
James, asking what can be done and fully expecting that the dog should be
put down.

James suggests that he let the dog be and see how things go.  Amazingly
enough, the next time that James comes to visit the dog is running 
through the fields and jumping over stone walls that it can't even see.

He has a similar story in there about a two-legged dog with both legs
on the same side.

Anyhow, I did find this book which looked like it might be useful, though:


It's called 'Living With Blind Dogs' and has really good reviews.
