There was a great story on NBC Nightly News tonight about dogs making wonder companions for people that need extra help. They spent most of the time following a young girl as she went to school and then at home. Her loyal dog was with her every step of the way.
These dogs are very unique and special. While all of us know just what our pets mean to us every single day just think what they mean to someone that depends on them for everything.
These dogs are trained to open doors, turn on lights, help with getting dress ... well you get the picture. And the dogs never complain and seem to truly enjoy being with "their companion".
I'm sure that it is a wonderful relationship, both for the dog and the owner. Can you just imagine the love and care - really unconditional love - that person receives from that dog.
