Default Has Anyone Ever Had Experience With A Blind Dog?

Didi is now full-blown blind. Both eyes She knows how to get to her water/food bowl and to the backdoor. She's been a very spoiled pooch with treats, ect. But will she get the same enjoyment from walking even though she has no sight? Last time I tried walking her, it was like she was scared to walk in such unfamiliar surroundings and her not able to see where she is and all. But that just saddens me so much, walks where her most favorite thing to do, besides eating her favorite meaty foods. What can I do with her to make her days worthwhile even though she's without sight now? I cuddle with her alot, pet, scratch her, but is there more? My mom thinks she's suffering to much and i should pts. But when I come in the room and I call her name and see that wagging tail, I don't see how she can't be a less of a happier dog than she was before even without her loss of sight. I'm going to try the whole walking thing again, try coaxing her more with my voice, I know in the backyard she still sniffs around, so she has to still get some enjoyment from a walk. I know it'll be more expensive keeping her alive, now with having to have meds for her other eye, but when its her time to go, it'll come, I don't see how this will stop her from enjoying her life she still has ahead.
