Photo Of Aging Dog With Owner Strikes Chord Around The World

HOUSTON ( — A simple photo of an aging dog has sparked a chord around the world after going viral.

The photograph shows a dog named Max in a park with his owners and was taken by a local television station in Houston.

But the image has touched people far beyond city limits.

You see, Max is in his golden years at 16 years old and is blind.

But his owners give him a ride in a stroller so he can still enjoy the outdoors.

On Thursday, more than a million people have seen the picture online. Max even gets fan mail.

His owners say the reaction has restored their faith that people are looking for good in everyone.

And some say, the photo offers a lesson about compassion for the elderly.
