Last nite this story appeared on the Evening News with Diane Sawyer. A two-year-old Golden retriever is blind. Born that way. He's been having seizures his whole life and they are getting worse. They have repeatedly talked about putting him down. He is in a veterinary hospital in Tulsa, OK. Enter a street dog who had been shot as a pop. Street dog cowers when faced with people or other dogs. The two are introduced. Street Dog instinctively knows Golden is blind. She picks up Golden's leash with her teeth and begins leading her around the yard. No cowering here. Golden follows her. They begin to bond and play together. Street Dog becomes Golden's seeing eye dog. Soon, Golden's seizures stop and the two dogs are living happily ever after. When I stopped crying, I asked myself why humans can't learn to behave like these two doggies?

Welcome to Following the Whispers blog
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here on Monday and Tuesday. This blog was created at the time my memoir came out, in February, 2009. Its motto was: creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair.

"The way to do is to be."
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs..(And) if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly."
