When you have grown up and spent your entire life in the Inland Empire you sometimes forget how big it is.  It doesn’t help that we lack our own media market and we constantly live in the shadow of moronic Los Angeles newscasters.  Every now and then I come across a story and figure it is happening in some place hundreds and thousands of miles away.

That was the situation with this blind dog and its seeing eye dog companion story.  For those who do not know here is a quick snippet from the SB Sun story:

Just days after a blind Husky and his seeing eye dog – a female Terrier mix – were brought into the San Bernardino City Animal Shelter, the duo received a new “leash” on life Tuesday thanks to a Los Angeles-based rescue organization.

Isaac – the Husky – and his pal, Isabella, were found roaming the streets of Fontana prior to being brought to the shelter.

I read about it on Facebook and then heard some radio tidbits about it.  It never dawned on me that it might be happening in our own backyard.  A picture included with the story reminded me a trend in dog breeding of late where breeders breed a Siberian Husky with a Pomeranian to get a Pomsky.

There are over 2 million people in San Bernardino County and it still kind of catches me off guard when for some reason or another there is a story that comes out of our county and makes national news.  Thankfully in this instance, it was a really cute story with a really happy ending.
