NY Post Cover -- Bow Wow -- 12-18-13

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.”


Well, worry not, the interwebs are in motion and people are raising money for Cecil and Orlando to be able to stay together. Even net of all the scammers, these dudes should be good to go.

Cue Bing Crosby. Ah, fuck it, cue Joan Jett.

    In two years, Orlando is a lock for a slot on MTV’s Teen Dog series.

      I can’t wait until Orlando revives the Jersey Shore.

    Not quite “Headless Body In Topless Bar” but close! And you can never go wrong by ending on a Joan Jett note! Happy Holidays!
