Dogs are superior to people. Simply put, they are the best friends we don’t deserve but do have. Here’s yet another illustration of their superiority.
James Isaac, age 9, has autism, is unable to speak, and feels awkward around people. Fortunately, he has Mahe.
Mahe is his loyal service dog and will never leave his side. The young patient from New Zealand recently underwent an MRI scan to determine the cause of his seizures, and when the doctors observed how close the two were, they permitted Mahe to accompany him.

Mahe stood by his best friend, nuzzling his face as James was placed inside the machine.
According to Michelle Isaac, James’ mother, who spoke to Stuff.co.nz about their conversation, “He was just looking at James and looked really worried.”
The way to the hospital is probably enough to make the majority of people weak in the knees, but Mahe has also been helpful in other contexts. Since they became best friends two and a half years ago, the dog that was trained by the Assistance Dogs New Zealand Trust helps keep James calm during all of the various outings they go on together.
According to Wendy Isaacs, who works for the trust, “there is such a magic that happens between a child with autism and the dogs, they just calm the kids down.”
Mahe, you’re already a legend; keep it up.
