NEW YORK  – The guide dog that leaped onto subway tracks after his blind owner lost consciousness and fell off a station platform is assured a loving home after his retirement.

Cecil Williams, who has been recovering at a hospital with Orlando still by his side, had been slated to get another working dog in January or February to replace the 11-year-old black Lab.

His medical benefits will cover a new guide dog, but won’t pay for a non-working dog.

Guiding Eyes, based in Yorktown Heights, provides working dogs for free but cannot cover retired dogs’ expenses.

“Orlando is my best buddy, he’s my pal,” Williams said Wednesday during a news conference at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center. “He takes me everywhere I need to go. He’s a very gentle gentleman.”

When word got out that Williams couldn’t afford to keep the black lab as a pet the donations began pouring in.

A pair of anonymous donors will cover all of Orlando’s expenses as he sails into retirement and remains by Williams’ side, 1010 WINS’ Gary Baumgarten reported.

“They told me that somebody was nice enough. So this is what I want to say. Christmas and the spirit of giving it exists here and it’s in New York,” Williams told CBS 2′s Jessica Schneider.

The black lab bravely leapt onto the tracks Tuesday morning after Williams, 61, lost consciousness and tumbled in front of an oncoming train at the 125th Street station.

Witnesses said Orlando began barking frantically and tried to stop Williams from falling from the platform.

“I tried to scream at him to come in because he was near the tracks and then he fell down to the tracks and he pulled the dog in with him and the train was approaching,” witness Ana Quinones said.

“We saw when he fell down to the tracks and his dog fell with him and everyone started freaking out,” said witness Danya Gutierez.

Orlando began nudging and licking his owner, trying to wake him and get him out of harm’s way. Witnesses called for help and the train’s motorman slowed his approach as Williams and Orlando lay in the trench between the rails.

“I yelled at him to stay down as train was coming in,” Quinones said.

“When the train came in, I screamed really loud, because I didn’t know what happened to him,” said Gutierez. “I thought he was hit.”

Both escaped serious injury when the train passed over them.

I'm not reading anything about how witnesses bravely banded together and rescued them by hand.

Why is that a low Fraxxx. If nobody gets hurt in the process and they don't bother you with it, who cares.
Or do we have got a norm? And if so, who decides these norms?
And how can they change?

That is a philosophical question my friend.

No it's not. You really want me to argue against zoophilia to the point where you can say "Hah, and the same goes for hoomooes!" (preferably in a British accent)? If you can't come up with something solid yourself I can't help you. I am against zoophilia and so are you, I presume. So I don't see the benefit in wasting my time on discussing it (Cause writing these textes is time-consuming, after all. For me, anyway). If someone truly would be in favor of it, I might argue against it. But you're just playing Devil's Advocate here to turn this around on me. Don't think so. Also wouldn't work :) The burden of proof is on you. Most basic scientific principle there is.

So it is a challenge!
oke. let me get my mind and time straight and I give you mine point of view.

By the way, although I agree with some of the other posters on the basis that we have the same religious point of view.
I don't necessary agree with them the way they attack you for not being spirtual.
I do value your input from your perspective. And respect your opinion.
