Blind Golden Retriever, Ray Charles, Takes Web by Storm

They say every dog has his day, and for Ray Charles, the blind 5-month-old Golden Retriever, that day is now. The visually-impaired puppy is taking the internet by storm with more than 13,500 Facebook friends.  The only male born in a litter of five on December 18, Ray Charles’ breeder could quickly tell something wasn’t quite right with the pup.  “He wasn’t interacting with the other puppies in the litter. He would just sit here and not do much,” his owner, Andrew Fales, 24, of Boston, told But now that he’s been adopted into a home with two older Golden Retriever siblings, Jack and Harley, Ray Charles is happy, healthy and not impeded by his lack of vision. “He’s up for anything,” Fales said. “His favorite thing to do is play with Jack, his older brother. Whether it’s tug-of-war, or a ball, they’re always playing. And he loves to go on walks.”
