A Remarkable Bond

I generally flip around the news stations when on the elliptical machine or treadmill at the gym. But this morning, I came across this amazing feature from ESPN's E-60 and thought you had to see it.

Owen is a nine-year-old boy facing things no child should go through. His best friend is Haatchi, a remarkable dog. Together the two are part of a story that provides inspiration for anyone facing adversity.
Both the boy and the dog have gone through hard times, which makes there bond stronger. Haatchi was less than a year old when he was deliberately tied to a railroad track in North London and hit by a train. His tail was severed and his rear leg severely damaged. The dog managed to walk away and hid for around five days before he was rescued. He ultimately lost his leg and tail, but the lack of them did not stop him from embarking on a remarkable journey with Owen who suffers from a rare genetic condition.
