I was forwarded this email from my mom and knew I had to share it on my blog...
Blind Dog’s Seeing-Eye Dog
Reminds me of the old adage: “If you want a true friend, buy a dog”.
Lily is a Great Dane that has been blind since a
medical condition required that she have both eyes removed.
For the last 5 years, Maddison, another Great Dane, has been her sight.
The two are inseparable.
Maddison leads Lily to wherever she needs to go –
faithfully - all day, every day.
Playing out in the open, Lily can sense Maddison nearby...
and Maddison, of course, makes sure of it.
They romp freely, enjoying the outdoors that every dog loves.
Caring, patient, non-judgmental, wonderful camaraderie
exists between these two dogs.
Humans could take a lesson.
People may forget what you said.
They may even forget what you did.
But people will never forget how you made them feel.
Be kinder than you might think necessary…
It morphs into an enjoyable habit.
