    Smile Blind Golden Retriever Gets Seeing-Eye Dog! Your Feel Good Story Of The Day!

    A blind golden retriever with epilepsy is getting a new leash on life in the U.S. after befriending a fellow canine that serves as a seeing-eye dog.

    Life for two-year-old Tanner was fairly bleak. The dog was born without the ability to see and suffered from seizures that caused him to lose control of his bodily functions.

    However, that has all changed, thanks to Blair. The stray dog was brought to the Woodland West Animal Hospital in Tulsa, Okla., and now leads Tanner around by taking hold of a leash.

    Officials with the animal hospital also say Tanner's seizures have been reduced thanks to the canine friendship.

    Blair and Tanner are now up for adoption, hopefully as a package.

    That is really tugging at the old heart strings. I hope they find a forever home TOGETHER soon. Just shows compassion is not just a human trait.

    Yep, splitting them up would be a crime.

    I know I will get beat up for this but here goes. While I did get a lump in my throat while watching this for the first time on the news today I would never have allowed this to happen. I would have put the animal down just as soon as I determined after birth that it was blind. I suppose that determining which would be more merciful, putting it down or allowing it to live is up to each individual.
