Best Friends (4 Photos)

Lily was puppy when she was struck down by a condition that caused her eyelashes to grow into her eyeballs, damaging them beyond repair. At the time, she was living with seven-year-old Great Dane, Maddison. Maddison knew instantly that Lily was blind and took her under her wing.

Since then, the two have been inseparable:

‘Maddison is Lily’s guide dog. If they are out and about, for the majority of the time Maddison will lead and Lily will walk nearly touching her so she knows where to go. It’s lovely to watch. Maddison is always looking out for her. They curl up together to go to sleep as well.'

Sadly Lily and Maddison's owners were unable to look after the dogs and gave them to the Dogs Trust Re-Homing center in Shrewsbury, UK. The owner of the center wouldn't dare separate the best friends.

'The two Great Danes come as a package. There's no way they should ever be separated. I'm sure they will find a loving home soon.'

      If I had the room Two amazing dogs like that needed, like an acre or so, Id take them as well. Thats just too awesome.

      euthanizing animals too that don't need to be put down is just sicking.(not that this post indicates that, Im just stating I dont like the idea of it in society anymore.)

        I know some humans that could stand euthanizing, however.

    Great story once you get past the bad writing…

    • Dick Salad

    • ThatGuy

      You're just butthurt that your $100,000 comparative lit degree isn't worth shit so you're on the chive in the middle of the day instead of at work. Go wine on wall street dick wad. Or better yet roll up your sleeves and get a manual labor job until the economy turns around.

      • Dick Salad

        I work for the Govt. actually, so long and thanks for all your taxes.

        • Georgie

          ha, greatest comeback I've seen read in a while.

        • Nah

          You say "work for the government" like you actually do something cool dood! I didn't know cashier's at the commissary actually had access to computers.

    • Jake Lemaire

      Yeah I noticed that too.

      • Dick Salad

        Just baffles me I said GREAT STORY which is the emphasis of the sentence but people are so herp derp that they think I'm actually talking negatively about the dogs… I don't want to live with this species anymore.

        • Guesty

    • Pookie

  • Dez

    Great danes don't live that long. Soon Lily will have to learn how to get by without Maddison. Sad but true.

    • Dick Salad

      Thanks Buzz Killington

    • Dez

      Not everything is sunshine and rainbows, DIck Salad.

      • Dick Salad

        You must be lonely

        • Dez

          Married with 2 kids, 3 dogs, and 2 cats, Dick Salad.

          • Dick Salad

            Do you feed them your sad negativity as well?

            • Dez

              No I feed them steak and caviar on fine china made of elephant tusks.

      That's why these animals are living in the moment and not concerning themselves with the future. Unlike us humans, who mostly can never be happy with what they have right now.

      • Hunter X

        in fairness, if I had someone provide ME with a home and food, I'd probably live in the moment, too.

    • Rocky Getters

      That was actually my first thought, too. Indeed, sad but true.

  • Pookie

    they look like awesome dogs

  • JWMan

    This is what makes the Chive so great. Beautiful women, funny pictures, and great stories.

  • IdahoGuy

    And where is the cat? Oh yeah. She's in the house not giving a crap.

  • JHarris

    This sounds very much like the plot of the next Twilight book.

    • Mickael Duncan

      Except with that, the readers go blind
