- 15/06/2016There is no denying the power of honorable deeds and photos of cute dogs in restoring our faith in humanity.
Owen Lima and his service dog, Blue, are the newest recruits at a Lowe’s home improvement store in Canada.
Lima suffers from a brain injury that requires him to have a service dog.
Because of the injury, Lima can have a hard time understanding people when they speak too quickly.
His canine sidekick helps calm him down and prevent anxiety attacks.
But, it came with a problem: He had difficulty finding a job.
“It’s so hard to find a job where people can accept me for the way I am and the fact that I have a service dog with me,” Lima told the Lowe’s staff.
This didn’t seem to be an issue for store manager Paolo Gallo.
Gallo found a position that would fit the duo perfectly: greeting customers at the store-front as the new customer service associate.
The company posted a photo of Blue in his custom-made Lowe’s employee vest.

Why do people have to label and discriminate??? I really fail to understand.
A good set of talents/skills and a wonderful personality can't be judged based by outer appearances.
Tall/short, size 0 or plus size, skin color, gender ... shouldn't matter!
