Charlie and Maverick, the blind Gold Retriever and his seeing eye pup!
Above is an actual picture from the future of a geriatric me (so like in one year) posing with my seeing (brown) eye twink after I finally go blind from all my damn eyeball surgeries. Please, like I’ll ever be that cute. Above is Charlie and Maverick, the stars of the story that caused global warming in my chest last week when my heart melted while seeing their tale on Today.
Two years ago, Charlie lost his vision completely after doctors had to remove his right eye due to glaucoma. They removed his left eye the year before. Charlie was left down and out and can’t see shit! As if Charlie didn’t have enough crap to deal with, his humans, Adam and Chelsea Stipe of North Carolina, gave him more earlier this year by bringing home a 4-month-old golden retriever puppy named Maverick. Maverick started out as the Nermal to Charlie’s Garfield. They didn’t get along, and what’s even worse is that Charlie doesn’t have eyeballs to roll over Maverick’s annoying ass!
But like a Disney movie I’d watch a million times on a Saturday afternoon, Charlie and Maverick eventually became best fur friends. They play together, cuddle, and nap together, and Maverick is somewhat of Charlie’s “eyes.” Prepare for your lungs to collapse from awwwwwww-ing so much over this:
Screw that other Charlie and Maverick. This cuteness is really what takes everyone’s breath away!
