Man’s best friend, in this case, is woman’s best friend. Borias , German Shepard extraordinaire, and his mom Tami.

When you see Tami Michaels and her dog Borias out for a run, the first thing you notice is they’re both just having a good time.

What you don’t see when you look at them is Tami’s wheelchair, or a woman with a disability. She trained Borias, who she got as a pup, to be her service dog. In return, Borias taught Tami how to be free from the chair.

“Being in a wheelchair has its limitations and I’m the type that I see an obstacle and I figure out a way to get around it. I don’t let things limit me, but definitely having him really feels like there are no limits. I can do whatever I want to do,” Tami said.

This amazing duo shows, while it’s not always easy dealing with a disability, with the right mindset and the help of a best friend named Borias, anything can be overcome.

“He’s my best friend, he’s my soul mate. He’s like my better half… I’d be lost without him,” Tami said.

To watch Borias and Tami in action check out this video, http://www.cbs8.com/flv/video_pop_hd3.php?startID=135535&cat=undefined. It shows you don’t need wings to fly.

If you want to let Borias know how amazing you think he is, you can stop by his Dogster page and leave him a bone.
