I would like to thank two couples, the Kippers and the Martins, who helped me with my dog on a recent Sunday morning.
Heading east on Chandler Boulevard, just west of the intersection at Desert Foothills Parkway, I stepped off the sidewalk to let another dog and his owner pass. Too late, I saw the blown off cactus branches, and my dog stepped on one. The Kippers helped me calm Scooby and use a shirt to dislodge the ball, but there were still a lot of needles sticking in between his pads. The Martins stopped their car in the median and drove us home.
Random acts of kindness are a blessing and I will be sure to pass on the good deeds to someone else some day.
