Quote of the Day

"The dog saved my life." --Cecil Williams on his guide dog, Orlando, who jumped onto Manhattan subway tracks in order to save Williams. Orlando attempted to keep Williams upright before his fall. When Williams fell, Orlando leaped off the platform and began licking William's face in order to rouse him. Witnesses called for help in time for the train to slow its approach and for both Williams and Orlando to duck their heads. Both survived with only minor injuries.

GOOD DOG, ORLANDO! All the treats and scritches!
