In the comments section from yesterday, Diane asked whatever happened to Ray Charles, the blind pit bull. Ray has officially been adopted by my friend who works with Karma. Unfortunately, the surgery to try to regain sight in his one "good" eye turned out unsuccessfully and they had to remove the eye. So he is now Ray Charles the blind one-eyed pit bull. Not only that, but he has had some sort of problem with the joints in his rear legs coming basically out of the socket and laming him. He had to have surgery for that and has been away from home at rehab. He comes home this week and we're told he can fully walk and is good to go (aside from the blindness). In spite of everything bad that has ever happened to Ray, he continues to be the happiest dog in the world. He is also the spokes-dog in the video my friend is cutting for Karma. It may not make it for the party, but it will eventually end up on the web. Here's the video from last year's fund raiser:

Love the vid! We had a blue heeler come up on the property around 2002 who had been shot in the face and balls. After a little time in the vets, we brought him home to be w/ our gang. He turned out to be one of the best for keeping his one eye trained on me while working outside. His name was Jack Daniels which morphed to--you guessed it--One Eyed Jack.
