I have to share with you guys what I saw while on a weekend getaway. We were in Harpers Ferry WV. It is an old historic town and is a hiker & bikerís paradise. Beautiful trails and it naturally attracts BP owners. They were everywhere and each and everyone was really enjoying the sudden warm weather (mid 70ís). Anyway I thought I was a dedicated BP owner but I saw a young guy that truly fit the definition of ďin love with his BPĒ.

I was enjoying a break from a long hike ant an ice cream stand.  I saw a huge German Sheppard dog lying behind this young guys truck and you could see the guy getting things together to go on a hike. I though the dog was lying there in kind of a strange position but I didnít think anymore about it till I saw him lift out a doggie wheelchair. The dog was paralyzed from mid-spine down. I watched as he lifted this huge dog and very gently placed him in the cradle. He fixed his tail and then each rear paw into little harnesses so his paws would not drag. The he put on his leash and that dog just looked so happy and off they went.
This stand was packed since it was really warm and no one made a sound. Everyone there with dogs just stood there with tears in their eyes. It was awesome to see so much love and care for a dog.

Just had to share since we see so much bad done to manís best friend!!

Oh my gosh! I know that dog! Well I don't know it, but I've seen him and his owner many times. We used to live in Charles Town WV which is only a 10min drive from Harper's Ferry. I even know the ice cream stand, kind of on the last little spit of a road between the town and the railroad, right?

I still have a vivid image of those two. When Sophie first had blown ACL's the first thing I told hubs was, "well we can always rig her up like the Harpers Ferry guy."

It truly is a small world. And I have always loved that guy for what he has done for his bub.

That totally brings a tear to my eye to hear that.  Not many people would go to that extent, unfortunately.

Thanks for sharing that--we need more stories like this one! :-*


We sure do!  Thank you for both the smile and the happy tear.  He sounds like a wonderful man and a very special sweet pup.  They are both so lucky to have one another.   :-*
