There's nothing like brotherly love. Good story.
"Government is not the solution to our problem; government IS the problem". - Ronald Reagan 1981
When Gonzo first went blind, Poncho didn't treat him any different, she said. But then he realized his brother needed help.
"At first, he'd be a little bit nervous when Gonzo would lean into him. And then somehow — I don't know how dogs communicate — he learned that he was utilizing him to determine where the turns are and how fast they were going. And he would let him do that — he wouldn't get as grumbly as he did in the beginning."
Beaulieu describes a spring day when he took the pair for a ride on a trail known for its deep snow, and Gonzo strayed to the edge of the trial and stumbled. With the team still moving forward, Poncho reached over, dug his head in the snow and pulled his brother out, grabbing his harness with his teeth.
"He essentially picked him out of the powder ... threw him back on the trail and never skipped a beat," Beaulieu said. "I've run dogs in a lot of places, all over the country, and it was the most amazing thing I've ever seen sled dogs do."
Be nice if the whole world could show brotherly love like this.
Funny how a dog figured out how to have compassion, and a human being, like the one in Betty's post about her neighbors visit to Taco Bell, is a dismal failure. This happened to my neighbor at Taco Bell

He aint heavy, he's my brother!
If you died today and stood in front of God and He asked you " Why should I let you into My Heaven?" what would you say?
