White Dog Blog:
The Most Popular and Inspiring Posts
The White Dog Blog began several years ago as a way to educate the public about a tragedy. Puppies are being born blind, deaf, or even both, due to a completely preventable genetic combination of merle to merle. These puppies are often born mostly white leading to the blog's name - the White Dog Blog.
The blog follows the author's experiences living with several of these special dogs with varying degrees of blindness and deafness. Through her efforts to educate, it is the hope that one day, this type of merle to merle breeding will no longer be supported by the dog community.
In the meantime, the blog offers a tremendous resource for those who are rescuing, adopting, and training these special dogs. This book gathers the blog's most popular and influential posts all in one place, making them easy to find and refer to again and again.
