Orestis – Daredevil

Orestis is one of my loves. He’s a Labrador Retriever.

A few years ago, he lost his sight, due to a degenerative and untreatable disease. But, of course, he kept going, showing us all how you must persevere, draw strength from the people you love and keep your chin up.

Most people that see him moving around don’t immediately pick up that he’s blind. His mapping capability is off the charts, but the most impressive thing is that he is literally afraid of nothing. He doesn’t hesitate, and sometimes throws caution to the wind, running into his unaware brothers, Ermis and Olly. He’s my little Daredevil.

See him unmasked, with the rest of the clan, here.
