Dog's Best Friend: Three Legs? No Handicap For This Lab

 I've spent 12 seasons teaching skiing to people with handicaps, so I really responded to this video by Ted Hoff of Cottonwood Ranch and Kennel. Ted's contribution this week of a Labrador Retriever missing a left front leg reminded me how important heart and desire are in a dog's (or a person's) life.

Watch as this Lab enthusiatically absorbs Ted's training, how the dog visibly enjoys the water retrieves. As I have learned in working with Telluride Adaptive Sports Program, disability is a condition; it doesn't define the person (or the dog).
