made me cry

OK, maybe I'm a big baby, or it's my special ed background, but this video made me cry.

I've seen dogs with disabilities do agility, and people with disabilities do agility. This tops them all. A blind man doing agility with his dog. Make sure you turn your sound on. The dog wears bells, obviously so the blind man can tell where his dog is.

Thats amazing, where would we be without dogs? I'm sure this guys life is so much richer because of his dog.

One of my friends showed me this and it's amazing. What a great bond between that dog and handler. And I give a lot of credit to the guy running with the handler for not getting in the way! Thanks for sharing!

Truly inspiring, makes you thankful for what you do have and love your dog even more.

Wow! What a beautiful image of the bond between humans and dogs and the tenacity of the human spirit! You couldn't create a better picture of teamwork: handler guides dog while dog also guides handler and assistant plays the most perfect role of support. Thanks so much for this, Sara!

Oh AC, teamwork is the best way to describe this video. You could see the love and the group effort.

Isn't it wonderful what determination, passion and love can accomplish. I was uplifted watching this video. The joy at the end of the run is contagious.

I normally can't watch dog video with the sound on because Katie barks at it. But this morning I stood her in my lap and we watched this together.

Now I'm drying my tears on her fur and she's licking my face. How lucky are we to each have such special dogs.
