Doug Delony of KHOU Houston snapped a picture of a man and a stroller at Houston’s Discovery Green, and when people noticed the dog, they instantly wanted to know more about it. The truth captured the hearts of hundreds of thousands of people.
Doug Delony took to Facebook and said: “Most afternoons I take a run through Discovery Green, and most afternoons I see this guy with a stroller but no baby. He brings this beautiful… what appears to be… disabled pup to the park. He lets it sit in the grass and take in the smell and the sound. Here he is giving it water out of a small cup he brings with him. An adorable dog and a nice guy- God bless ’em.”
The love and kindness the man shows his blind dog has restored our faith in humanity. KHOU Houston sat down with the family to talk about their story.
“He’s part of our family,” said Edie Mayo of 16-year-old Max. “He’s my best friend. He’s taught me life lessons that I will never forget.”
