From tubmlr: "My sister's dog is blind and I guess today she made this ridiculous dog space suit thing to keep him from running into things."
Claire and Mark, both visually impaired, were brought together thanks to their seeing eyes dogs who would always managed to find and snuggle each other at a training course in Shrewsbury, England. I guess their puppy love was infectious, because Claire and Mark fell in love shortly there after, and now they're engaged to be married next spring. Congrats!
Meet Ray Charles the adopted, blind Golden Retriever who lives in Boston. The Bruins are his favorite team (as you can tell from his jersey), and he and his fans want him to drop the puck at the Bruins playoff game. He's a sweet dog with big dreams but now there's a petition to make his dream a reality! Good luck, Ray Charles!

Well, here's another story to warm your heart today. Four years ago, a man found a tiny kitten while on holiday. But it was not your average kitten. In the rescuer's own words:
4 years ago while I was on holiday in the south of Italy (was living in the north) I found a tiny kitten desperately crying with the power of a thousands suns. I decided to take care of her during my holiday, so that she would be stronger and more capable to survive when I would leave back home. At the time she was obviously too young to survive alone under a 43 degrees Celsius (109 F) sun.
Her legs were clearly not okay, the mouth was also asymmetrical and impossible to close, probably because of a trauma, but the worst news still had to come. The following day I brought her to the vet who said that her eyes were closed not only because she was still too young but also because an infection ate both eyeballs. The vet also said that she was too weak, and that he thought that she could not survive.
In the following days my brother and I started to take care of her eyes infection, ears infection, intestine worms and fever, while keeping her warm, feeding her with warm powder milk every 4 hours and teaching her to follow the noise of our steps and clapping hands. After 15 days Skunky was still weak but alive, but I had to leave. So I changed my plane reservation to include a pet, and long story short, Skunky is now sleeping in my bed, with the body under my covers and her head on my pillow.
…what Skunky gives to me everyday is worth 10 times more what I might do for her.
Is it dusty in here? My eyes are watering, so it must be dusty. Yes, it is very dusty in here. So dusty.
