THOUGH neither dog can hear or particularly see the other – nothing will stop Morty and Lucy trying to play with each other.
The adorable duo are proof that disabilities are in no way a hindrance, but enable them to find new ways to communicate and enjoy a full and happy life.
Morty and Lucy are just two of their household’s dogs with additional needs, living alongside Echo and Frank, where their owner documents their lives on the TikTok account @echobadlistener.
Morty is completely deaf and blind, and whilst Lucy can’t hear, she does have a small amount of vision – but the canine companions love to play chase with each other, which comes with some challenges.
In an adorable video viewed over 216,000 times, their owner showed their fans how the best friends try to communicate despite their differences.
The clip sees Morty encouraged to chase Lucy as she ‘boops’ his nose to let him know where she is.
A confused Morty tries to work out what the game they’re meant to be playing actually is, pausing to ponder his next steps.
The overlaying text read: “Come on, chase me!” as Lucy jumps into a play bow, with Morty edging forward to find her.
It looks as though Morty thinks, plotting how to best enter the game, before pouncing forward onto an unsuspecting Lucy.
The heartwarming video earned hundreds of comments from viewers who adored seeing the duo play.
One said: “Thank you for showing that they do play even though they are deaf and blind.”
Another added: “I’m glad to see it’s not just my blind dog who’s still crazy.”
Others were impressed with Morty’s skills, convinced he had a plan the whole time.
“Morty knew all along, just patiently waiting and plotting,” a third added.
Another said: “Morty being sneaky like this makes me smile every time.”
Blind dogs can still live a full and happy life, even though they don’t always know what’s going on around them.
