A Boy and His Dog
August 6, 2014 11:31 AM   Subscribe

A young boy named Owen who has a very rare muscle condition called Schwartz Jampel Syndrome, as well as agoraphobia, had his life changed when his parents rescued a young Anatolian Shepherd named Haatchi who lost a leg after being deliberately tied to a railroad line in North London and hit by a train.

Dammit, it's a perfect set up for a Don Johnson joke, but... but... those damn onions.

Dogs are great. I don't understand people who don't like dogs. I pet my dog. so that I don't strangle people.

Somebody needs to punch that guy in the eye.

The first good news is that an Anatolian Shepherd is a dog, and not a shepherd from Anatolia. The second is that this is adorable.

Haatchi is gorgeous beyond words, I am very pleased that these two have found one another!

Dogs are great. I don't understand people who don't like dogs.

Any person who doesn't like dogs isn't a full and proper person. Dogs are the best thing the human race has ever created, and saying you don't like dogs is like saying you don't like "art" or "cooking" or "chairs".

Or "breathing".

I love Owen, and his parents, too. They seem like such affirming, down-to-earth people.

The dog who would bark like a lunatic and charge the fence when I tried to visit my local library was kind of a jerk.

But this dog is cool. #notalldogs

Maybe he just thought you had terrible taste in books, and was trying to encourage you away?
