It’s the holiday season, so I thought I would share a heart-warming story. Blind dude falls onto subway tracks; seeing-eye dog (named Orlando) follows his guy down to the tracks; construction worker coaches blind dude to nestle in the trough between the tracks to avoid oncoming train while passengers yell at the train operator to stop. How’d it turn out? All is well.
Holy crap. I just clicked on one of the stories, and it looks like Orlando and his dude (named Cecil) are okay, but he’s going to have to give him up:
Williams said the Labrador retriever, who will turn 11 on Jan. 5, will have to be put up for adoption soon because his insurance will no longer cover the cost of caring for the dog. Williams said that if he could afford it, “I would definitely keep him.”
