When she walked out, his world was shaken. How could he go on? After all, it was she who gave his life direction. It was she who was always there for him when the world seemed unforgiving and dark. She alone knew his unique and special needs…and he knew hers. It was as if she was an extension of him, as if they were one.
The day she left him, he withdrew into a shell of utter darkness. He could not even bring himself to step outside his home. How could he live with himself knowing he was responsible for the loss of the one thing he could never afford to lose? How could he live with himself knowing he had let her get away? Yet, he was to blame. He had left the door ajar. Yes, there would be other seeing-eye dogs, but none like Muffy.
