Hero guide dog receives medal at Knicks game

New, comments

BEST DOG OF ALL TIME.

Ohhh man. Oh man. Ohhhh man. You trying to cry? If you're trying to cry, read on. In December, 60-year-old Cecil Williams, who is blind, stumbled and fell onto subway tracks in Harlem. After futile attempts to hold him back, Williams' guide dog, Orlando, dove onto the tracks and tried to move him, then stayed by his side as they let several cars of the A train pass over them (at the urging of subway employees). Both dog and man survived, and Orlando is a hero. Friday night at the Knicks game, Madison Square Garden gave Orlando their monthly Sweetwater Clifton award for his heroics, and here's where you start crying:

Gooddog

HE IS WAGGING HIS TAIL. HE KNOWS HE'S A GOOD DOG. VERY GOOD DOG, ORLANDO. VERY VERY GOOD DOG.
