Cole Massie is a really cute kid from California. He has cerebral palsy, but he’s battling tooth and nail to walk, even undergoing intense treatment to make that happen. You probably already knew this, but he’s awesome.
Possibly more excellent? His trusty dog, Ilia, the 2008 ASPCA DOG OF THE YEAR!!! Not only has Ilia not left Cole’s his side, but he even dressed up like a pirate once (see picture, right).
The moral of the story? CATS: 0, DOGS: 1. CASE CLOSED!
(Actually, it’s that miracles happen everywhere, all the time, even in the form of a four-legged Black Lab.)
