Eine Kleine Nichtmusik

Witty and pertinent observations on matters of great significance OR Incoherent jottings on total irrelevancies OR Something else altogether OR All of the above

A four-legged friend, a four-legged friend....

It's funny, the things you find. When I encountered this site in somebody's blogroll it struck me as a good rejoinder to the morons like Brett who believe you can tell everything about a person by what they're wearing: or conversely that if someone is, say, a Muslim then you can make assumptions about how they will dress.

So there I was, browsing through the site, when I encountered this picture. And I thought, I bet there's an interesting story behind that one (though with the slight sinking feeling that there was going to be one of those "Muslim cab drivers refuse to carry guide dogs" angle to it).

Anyway, here is the Mona Ramouni story, and very heartwarming it is too. Also this report, which follows up her story a little later, points out that Muslims can use dogs as assistance animals, and that one of the reasons Mona chose a horse was that it would cut down on the sad business of having to change guide dogs when they become too old to work.



Of course, the other approach is to get your local Muslim community to accept your guide dog, as with this guy in Leicester:



or these ladies in Australia.



I think Neslihan, Karina, and the Muslim community which supports them, are far better advertisements for Australia than the ignorant Nazi troll who originally inspired me to write this post. (But Brett played his part too, like Gollum in Lord Of The Rings.)
