“...I count my blessings every day.” Man's Dog Saves His Life on The Daily.

It's that time of year wherein many folks seem to be more open to hearing and receiving messages of compassion. And this story is sure to leave you in a pile of tears. In this short video feature, we meet Andy who has struggled with heroin and crack addiction, as well as homelessness. On more than one occasion, he'd contemplated suicide as a resolution to feeling alone in a world that seems to discard those who struggle, like Andy. Everything changed when Bailey came into his life. Andy said, "[Bailey] looks to me for food, love, and play. [He gives me a purpose, a role. It's an incentive to stay clean and have a home]." It's kind of amazing to think about just how many wonderful and at times life-saving ways non-human animals can affect change in the lives of those around them. Here's to Andy for finding resolve in helping himself and to Bailey for helping him find it.
