Charles Hooper had met with an accident which rendered him paralytic and confined to bed. From being a very fit high-charging zone sales manager, he was forced to lie on a bed alone. His dog,Duke's re-entry into his life lifted his numb spirits. The day he made him take his first step, there was a rekindled hope. Duke assumed all the responsibility for leading him back to his office desk … Life had taken a full circle. From shock to denial and helplessness to anger, Duke taught me to cope with the challenge and led him to accept the changed mode of life. The order that he received that day was a befitting tribute to Duke who would always be alive with him and be a part of everything else he achieves in his life.
