Our hearts absolutely melted when we read the story of Milo & his blind older 'brother', Eddie. As you can see from the picture above, Milo, 6 helps his brother, Eddie, an eight-year-old labrador retriever, and literally guides him on a daily basis, leads him by his leash and shows him the way, & Eddie follows. Milo & Eddie live in Cardiff, Wales with their owner, Angie Baker-Stedham, 45. Angie, tells, Caters News Agency,"Without Milo, Eddie would be lost". Eddie has to wear a shield to protect his eyes from twigs & other objects he can't see outdoors, maybe our pals at Doggles should send him a pair of their awesome protective eyeware ;) Before Eddie went blind, the brothers would play together chasing toys, now, Milo, the terrier always has his eyes on Eddie to make sure he is there in case Eddie needs him. When Milo isn't guiding Eddie, he is showing him how much he loves him by laying next to him & giving him sweet kisses (licks).
We are so touched by such heartfelt stories like this one, because it truly reaffirms our beliefs of how much dogs are such compassionate, caring and loving beings. They don't judge, they love to help and be needed.
