Meet 3-year old albino miniature pinscher/chihuahua Tucker. Tucker was born with MPS VI, a “mucopolysaccharide disease that causes deformities and various medical issues.”
In this case, his eyes are cloudy so he has to wear goggles outside, and he can’t walk on his front paws so he gets around on them soldier-crawling-through-mud style. Plus he looks like a vampire. That said, even with all of Tucker’s setbacks, there’s no question in my mind his quality of life is at least tenfold what mine is. I drank spoiled milk for breakfast and was supposed to get an Amazon package this morning but when there was a knock on the door it was just a neighbor who wanted to punch me in the face. At least Tucker has somebody who cares about him. My friends are always betting me to eat broken glass.
