Hearing dog on a Metrolink tram

I took this photograph today on a Metrolink tram when it was stopped at Droylsden. The dog is a hearing dog for the deaf. I've not seen too many about. The sun was streaming through the windows and casting shadows.

  1. Cute doggie, it is nice to see these special dogs. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

  2. Service dogs are amazing creatures. Glad you got a shot of this one.

  3. Service dogs pay quite a price in their training years. They bond in their first year with humans, only to suffer the heartbreak of being put into a training school. I always hope they luck out when they are finally matched up with a human that needs them. As a friend once said to me, we sure do owe them a good life.

  4. Looks like a delightful, placid dog who adapts well to different situations. And your tram interior looks like our train interiors with a focus on yellow.

  5. I never knew there were dogs for the deafs ! Interesting picture with the light and shadows and ... the yellow of course !

  6. Beautiful, loyal dog and shadows cast by a warm sun.
    The dog likely conveys this to the owner also.
    Loved this photo!
    Have a Wonderful Day!
    Peace :)
