To go along with my recent post about dogs, I want to refer readers to this recent article: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/04/09/lucky-paws-blind-dog_n_846938.html.
This story of a seeing-eye companion to another dog warmed my heart. It also points out the almost human-like responses animals often show. The more I see and read about the subject, the more I realize that we humans, though certainly special, aren't all that unique. If you read the account, you'll probably agree.
