Morty is both deaf and blind, while his sister Lucy is visually impaired and deaf too – but that doesn’t hinder their communication a bit
Owning a dog with additional needs can be fraught with challenges.
Deaf and blind dogs experience the world differently from other pets, but that doesn’t stop them from having fun – as two disabled dogs have proven.
The TikTok account @ Echo bath listener documents what it is like to live with four disabled dogs, each with their own individual quirks and personalities.
But the dogs named Morty, Echo, Lucy and Frank still love to play with each other, even when they can’t see or hear each other.
In an adorable video that was viewed over 216,000 times, her owner showed her fans how some of the dogs try to communicate despite their differences.
In the clip, deaf and blind Morty is encouraged to go after Lucy, who is deaf and visually impaired.
Having some vision, Lucy wrinkles Morty’s nose to get him to join in when a confused Morty tries to figure out what the game is all about.
Overlaying text read, “Come on, chase me!” As Lucy jumps into a game arc while Morty pushes forward to find her.
It looks like Morty is thinking and planning the best way to get into the game before pouncing on an unsuspecting Lucy.
The heartwarming video received hundreds of comments from viewers who loved watching the duo play.
