3 years ago, veterinarians diagnosed Sterling with glaucoma. Since then, the 11-year-old Siberian Husky has completely lost his sight. Its owners Lillian and Mark McKee feared that their four-legged friend would have difficulty adjusting to his new condition.
“After the first procedure, he was very depressed,” Lillian said, “but we took him with Walker to the beach, and he immediately came to his senses. From that day on, the 10-year-old Alaskan Malamute became Sterling’s «guide dog».
Walker makes sure his best friend has fun and enjoys the great outdoors despite being blind. In general, Walker kind of became the eyes of Sterling.
Being able to do things you love, like long walks in nature, going to the beach or playing in the snow, keeps Sterling in shape. Husky literally enjoys life! “Having someone to lead him is the reason why he is always a happy dog,” Lillian said.
To protect his eyes, Sterling wears ski goggles. And so that “Walker does not feel left out, he also has it,” his adoptive mother added. Sterling and Walker are an adorable duo that exudes happiness.
The two inseparable hairballs even have their own Instagram account, @sterlingandwalker, which has nearly 18,000 followers to date. Their family regularly posts touching photos and videos.
