Marnie the dog fun facts 5:
She may be 14-years old, and have a distinct head tilt, but Marnie's actually healthy as a horse.
According to Braha, the tilt is down to Marnie having once experienced a brief illness called Vestibular Syndrome, which many people often confuse with a stroke.
When she was adopted, Marnie had a dark grey cloudiness in her left eye, which, Braha was told, would mean she would be permanently blind on that side.
However, with plenty of TLC, Marnie's left eye has cleared up, and now she can see perfectly well.
