The true story of a little blind dog who could paint

Written and illustrated by Dee Dee Murry

Hallie, the dachshund, was dumped at a shelter during the night as a puppy. She found her forever home and lived a great life until the age of 10 when she went blind. What happened after that was something neither her or her human Mom would ever have thought possible. A story of inspiration and hope!

This is a video of Hallie creating her very first painting. It was about 2 months before she went blind and the only painting she did before she lost her sight.

This is an early “training” session just 2 months after Hallie went blind. She loved learning and never wanted to stop during our practice!
