Based on a True Story...

It all began on Flight 483.

On the way home from Laguna, Shawn Welling and his dog, Ranger, were seated next to a man. Shawn was so focused on editing his photos, it took him a while to realize Ranger placed his chin atop of this man's foot. He looks to the man right away to apologize, as Ranger has never done this on any of their previous flights together. The man, who introduced himself as Dave McCoy, was beaming with the biggest smile. He then began to explain his joy: "I can't physically feel anything anyways, you see, I am paralyzed from the chest down. Funny thing is I feel something, an energy, where your pup put his chin on my leg. It's the first time in a long time I've 'felt' anything." Ranger then placed his chin over to the next of Dave's leg, and the top of his chest on the first leg.
