These Halos For Blind Dogs Will Give You Hope For Our Tired World

Muffin's Halos protect blind dogs from running into things. And they are the cutest things ever made.

When Silvie Bordeaux's toy poodle Muffin went blind several years ago, she was heartbroken watching him run into walls and fall down stairs.

She looked everywhere for something to help blind dogs, and when she didn't find anything she set to work inventing something herself. And that's when Muffin's Halo was born.

This patented device helps blind dogs and their owners have a more stress-free life.

The lightweight copper wire attaches to a comfortable harness and lets dogs feel what they're bumping into before they hurt their heads.

It comes in all sizes, and many designs including the original "Halo", "Butterfly Wings", and a "Quarterback" jersey.

Bordeaux's goal is to get these "superman outfits" into shelters, where blind dogs are most often put down.

She started the Second Chances for Bling Dogs charity to raise money and awareness for getting blind dogs the love and support they need.

In addition to the Halo, she's even developing a whole line of products to help blind dogs live full and happy lives.
