An Inspiring Run of Resiliency

(Leave a Comment)

Teamwork, trust, faith, overcoming handicaps, facing challenges head-on. These are but a few of the hallmarks of resiliency you will see in this short video. I’m interested to hear your thoughts, too, so please comment below.

First, a little background about the video. If you’re not familiar with dog agility competitions, the idea is that the dog must run an obstacle course guided by his handler. It involves a lot of practice and incredible communication between dog and handler. Sometimes even just the dip of a shoulder will cue the dog which way he is supposed to go. Experienced teams don’t always make it through a run cleanly.

Watch as a blind man and his dog complete the course. Make sure you see the wonderful celebration at the end. Gives me goosebumps each time I watch.
