This seeing eye dog, Orlando, leapt onto the subway tracks yesterday to save his blind master. Would your dog do the same thing?
Cecil Williams fainted on the uptown A train platform yesterday and fell onto the tracks. ENTER ORLANDO, WORLD'S BEST DOG. This dog, who does not even get paid, leapt down onto the tracks with Cecil and kept licking him to wake him up.
What's that—an oncoming train? Look out, Orlando and friend!
THE TRAIN LITERALLY RAN OVER THEM BUT THEY WERE OKAY.
Orlando sat by his master's side in the space between the tracks and they both survived.
Cecil Williams told the New York Post that "he will give Orlando a special treat, as well as affection and scratches behind his ear." You're god damn right he will.
Orlando the dog makes all the other subway heroes look like shit. No offense.
(Update: Well, I see that Gabrielle Bluestone took note of this story last night. Let's just say we can't get enough dog subway hero!)
