Two years ago, Muffin Bordeaux, a toy poodle, went blind. He stumbled around, bumping into hard objects and hurting himself. He was depressed and increasingly immobile. So his owner invented this gadget to help him navigate the world: Muffin’s Halo for Blind Dogs. It’s a harness that forms a ring around the dog’s head. This helps to protect a dog’s head when s/he moves around. Many of the harnesses come with padding shaped like angelic wings, hence the name “halo.”
Here’s a video of a dog wearing one of the halos. Since taking up his wings, Basil has become more active. He’s not worried that he’ll ram into hard objects, so he explores the darkness confidently.
