A golden retriever is a dog breed that is known for its dedication and concern for others. They are even ready to save another dog’s puppies and protect their owners from wild animals. However, this is not the only thing that makes this kind of dog special – they can be best friends and take care of each other. And here’s a wonderful example of faithful friendship and assistance to prove it.
Everyone was touched by the story of these two buddies who have become best friends and now they go everywhere together. This melts people’s hearts and rings them to tears of happiness.
Charlie is an old golden retriever, who lost both of his eyes due to glaucoma. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. Stipe, were concerned about their pet and decided to give him a present for New Year’s Eve to cheer him up. From that moment Charlie’s life changed completely. He met this little guy that soon became his best friend.
Maverick, the most adorable puppy became part of the Stripe family the same time they were waiting for a baby. The lovely family wanted to have a dog that will be the same age as their child so they can grow together. But Maverick was not just any puppy.
No one expected him to be a true friend and a valuable helper that will change the life of the whole family, but most importantly Charlie’s. He somehow noticed that Charlie had a problem with his sight and realized that he would lose toys while they’re playing. He would immediately go get them and bring them back to him so they could continue playing.
Basically, Maverick became Charlie’s eyes. He helps the old dog to orient himself in the space around them and makes him forget about his condition. They do everything together: sleep, eat, walk, play and have fun. On the other hand, Charlie teaches the puppy how manners and good behavior. Simply said, they make each other happy.
In the end, we all know that the greatest gift of life is friendship, and this dog definitely received it. Just like everyone says: “Friends are medicine for a wounded heart and vitamins for a hopeful soul.”
