    Blind sled dog aided by brother

    Sled dogs Poncho, left, and his blind brother Gonzo are hooked up for a run at the Muddy Paw Sled Dog Kennel, in Jefferson, N.H on Jan. 17, 2013. Poncho has taken to helping his blind brother on regular runs.

    The kennel takes in rescues and "second-chance" dogs.

    Dogs are such marvelous creatures.

    Thanks for posting, Marv. What good pooches. Dogs indeed are special. If only people could be as loving.

    More about Gonzo...

    Gonzo, an 8-year-old Alaskan husky, went blind three years ago. But it was clear that he wanted to keep running with the other dogs at the Muddy Paw Sled Dog Kennel in Jefferson, which offers dog sled rides for tourists and serves as an adoption shelter for rescued and retired sled dogs.

    Gonzo got back into his routine with help from his brother, Poncho, who nudges him in the right direction. During one trip, he even grabbed Gonzo's harness with his teeth and lifted him out of the snow when Gonzo got stuck.
