If you are not already waist-deep in a puddle of squee at the sight of a golden retriever puppy in a hockey jersey, prepare to deal with the cutest, saddest Facebook bio ever:
Hi, I’m Ray Charles a golden retriever that was born blind (12/8/12), but don’t feel bad for me! I can run and play and do everything else other dogs that can see do! I live at home with my two older brothers Harley and Jack and my sister Maggie!
You should already be frantically running around your house screaming OH MY GOD HOW DO I HUG AND HELP THIS BLIND PUPPY WHO LOVES HOCKEY. I can’t help you on the hugging part (that’s up to Ray Charles’ owners), but I CAN share with you a way to help him out … you see, there’s a petition going around trying to get Ray Charles The Oh My God Blind Golden Retriever Puppy Are You Serious into a Boston Bruins home playoff game as the celebrity guest puck-dropper.
“An avid Boston Bruins fan, Ray would like to drop the puck at a Bruins home game and we need your help to make this happen,” the petition says.
“For all the joy he has brought us, it seems only fair that we take a few moments to sign his petition. “Ray Charles may not have his sight, but we can still show him how much he means to all of us! Help Ray Charles drop the puck at a Boston Bruins game and keep helping to enrich the wonderful dog’s life!” (via NESN)
Signing this petition is the most important thing you’ll ever do. I don’t want to live in a world where a blind golden retriever wants to drop a puck at a hockey game and doesn’t get to. LOOK AT HIS JERSEY. HE CAN’T. Sign this thing and join the over 3000 people who have announced to the world that they have a heart and are not horrible.
(I love you and want the best for you, Ray Charles.)
(I would also very much like to hug you.)
