Lily, a six year old Great Dane, had lost both of her eyes due to a rare medical condition. She’d also lost the will to live. Until one day…


…another Great Dane named Maddison came into her life. He soon began “walking” Lily every day, guiding her with gentle but firm nudges, insisting she keep up. Her depression quickly vanished, displaced by an unbreakable bond of friendship. Now, neither Lily nor Maddison will go anywhere without the other.

You know that thing about dogs being good at being best friends? Maybe they should set up “human obedience schools” to teach us how…

to be as giving as Maddison and as grateful as Lily.PawPrint6Happy dog days of August!

  18. What a beautiful story. Yes, animals are so much better at showing and receiving love, than what we are. So happy that Lily has Maddison walking her through life.
