This is definitely the most heartwarming story you'll read today. A woman adopted a paralyzed stray dog she found dragging himself across a beach in Thailand. Now healthy, with a wheelchair, Leo the dog is living the squirrel-chasing life in Canada. The Dodo has the story.
One thing that touches me about,dogs is their, well, dogged determination to live, and to live happily, with limitations that might embitter some humans in the same condition. Dogs happily trotting along missing one leg still running and playing, dogs born without front legs who become bipedal, deaf or blind dogs still happily negotiating through life, still capable of sharing joy, and still able to love and be loved.
Only human mistreatment or neglect seems to be effective in stripping them of their inner wonder, joy, and sweet natures.
