I read a very heart-warming story on my friend, Julian Long’s, Facebook wall:
Today I was out running errands and I had Edgar with me. We went into a store, and I was standing looking at something when I felt a tug on Edgar’s leash. I looked around and Edgar had jumped up into the lap of a disabled man in a wheelchair, and was letting the man hold him. I looked at the guy and tears were streaming down his face. “I had a Bichon that died last year,” he said. “His name was Edgar. What’s your dog’s name?” he asked me. What a lovely world this is sometimes.
Apparently Edgar has a knack for knowing when people need love and this isn’t the first time he’s comforted someone in need. But, how did he find someone who had lost his dog that was the same breed and shared the identical, unusual name? Coincidence? Synchronicity? What do you think? Do you have pets that have intuitively known the needs of strangers? Thanks for sharing your thoughts and stories by commenting below.
