Can-Do-Ability: Answers and Solutions from my personal experiences of living with a disability

A Touching Goodbye

28 Apr 2014How beautiful is it when an animal knows a human is sick or unwell and the animal tenderly sits with the human with all the patience in the world.

My dogs are very sensitive in this way. When they see me struggle they get anxious and bark and when I fall they come running to see that I am okay. This week, once Bronte discovered I was okay after a fall, she through her ball, that landed on my face, as if to say, “yep, you're okay, come on, lets play ball!”

The beautiful article that has swept the internet where a giraffe said goodbye to one of the workers at the zoo puts a bit of a lump in your throat and reminds you that sometimes animals are far wiser than humans. They don't discriminate if someone has a disability and they know how to say goodbye to the sick.
