This is Us

Yes, Virginia, there is good news!

The video makes you want to cry. Everything that’s good about people and “big business” and puppies and America and Christmas is all rolled into one story about a local guy with cerebral palsy who received a service dog yesterday.

The pup still has a year of training ahead (which was evident 😂) and that will be paid for by a local company that donated the $20,000 necessary to make it happen.

In my mind’s eye, I can already see this dog: bigger, calmer, older.. obediently walking next to his buddy’s wheelchair by next Christmas.  It’s just wonderful to imagine how both the dog and his new owner are going to grow.

There is so much good happening every day, and there are so many good people.

And puppies..?

Well, I just wish we could all live and love with their unselfconscious exuberance.
