Seeing-Eye Dog Fails Final Exam, Something Incredible Happens

Tissues required.

Posted on

Meet Pesto. He's a super cute black lab who was basically raised in a library.

Look at that FACE.

Look at that FACE.

His mom, a librarian, raises puppies to be trained as guide dogs for the blind. Puppy Pesto came every day with her to work.

Best co-worker ever.

You know who else came to the library everyday? A single mom and her two boys, Javary and Javae'.

They're the sweetest.

They're the sweetest.

Both boys were being homeschooled because they have disabilities. Javae's autism was so severe, he couldn't even speak to his mom.

Seriously, how sad is that?

Javary was told by doctor's he would never walk.

Doesn't matter. He's still smiling.

It was love at first sight when the boys met Pesto.

The grins say it all.

The grins say it all.

After bonding for a year, the boys said goodbye to Pesto, who left to become a trained guide dog for the blind.

Super sadness.

Super sadness.

All the family hoped for was that Pesto be placed with a phenomenal human being who loved him as much as they did.

Because they were seriously besties.

On the last day of training, the family got a call.

Guess what happened?!

They were sure it was news of Pesto's placement, since he had passed all his tests with flying colors.

Pesto was one smart cookie.

Pesto was one smart cookie.

But instead, they learned Pesto had failed his final exam.

Pesto would not be a guide dog. He was being sent home.

Pesto would not be a guide dog. He was being sent home.

With no where else to go, Pesto went home with the boys and their mom.

No one was actually upset about this.

No one was actually upset about this.

And then, incredible things started to happen. Javae was talking to Pesto.

The only way he could communicate with Pesto was by using verbal commands.

And with Pesto by his side, Javary found the strength to walk.

No words.

This made their mom cry. A lot.

Let it out, mom, let it out.

Maybe, just maybe, Pesto had discovered failure could bring him closer to his forever family.

Dogs just pretty much know.

Because the best outcomes don't always end with everything going as planned. Sometimes the best thing to do is just follow your heart.

I mean, look where Pesto's heart led him.
