The Disabled Dachshund Society

It is the goal of the Disabled Dachshund Society to show that quality of life
can be maintained for most disabled Dachshunds. It will require some help from you.
We are here to help you find the things you will need to know.
There is hope!

Kidney Failure


I cannot see you Mommy, when you cuddle me so near.
And yet I know you love me, it's in the words I hear.
I cannot see you Daddy, when you hold me by your side
But still I know you love me when you tell me so with pride.
I cannot see to run and play out in the sun so bright
For here inside my tiny head it's always dark as night.
I cannot see the treats you give when I am extra good
But I can wag my tail in Thanks just like a good dog should.

"She cannot see. The dog’s no good" is what some folks might say "She can't be trained, she'll never learn, She must be put away."

But not you, Mom and Daddy, You know that it's alright Because I love you just as much as any dog with sight.
You took me in, you gave me love and we will never part Because I'm blind with just my eyes, I see you in my heart.
