Thanks for animal friends

I just read a good dog book—the heartwarming story about Haatchi and Little B.

Haatchi is a big dog—an Anatolian shepherd—that was abused and then left for dead on railroad tracks. Little B., whose real name is Owen, is a boy who lives in England and has a rare genetic disorder. He had become anxious and shy because people stared at him.

The dog with three legs and the boy in a wheelchair form a special bond, and Little B. gains confidence from his relationship with his special friend.

Wendy Holden, the author of Haatchi and Little B.—The Inspiring Story of One Boy and His Dog, quotes Konrad Lorenz, who said: “There is no faith which has never yet been broken—except that of a truly faithful dog.”

After finishing this book, I took a few minutes to play with my own animal friend, Ginger, a lively Brittany. She faithfully accompanies me on morning walks and often finds a comfortable spot close to my desk during the day.
