BBC presenter and veterinarian Dr. James Greenwood has one of the cutest dogs in the world. His Labrador Retriever named Oliver has only one eye, but that doesn’t stop him from having the happiest little face. Greenwood is proud to show off Oliver because he believes every dog is beautiful.
But one stranger ruined Greenwood’s day. Even though thousands of people comment on how cute Oliver is, all it takes is one negative person to ruin the moment. Someone made an obscene comment about Oliver’s appearance, which is obviously not true. It prompted Greenwood to speak publicly about the issue.
No Room For Hate
Greenwood turned to social media to share his emotions after a disturbing interaction. A stranger walking down the street called beautiful Oliver “f’ing ugly.” Greenwood was furious, but he didn’t want to make a scene. So, instead, he told his followers online all about the horrible person.
“To that guy today – Oliver is not ‘f’ing ugly’. But he is a dog. And can’t answer back. Which basically made you look completely stupid. You absolute doughnut,” Greenwood captioned beside an adorable image of Oliver.
As a puppy, Oliver had been attacked by an adult Labrador, which caused his eye to prolapse. He was the only puppy in the litter that didn’t find a family. But Greenwood later brought him home because he thought he was beautiful.
Greenwood’s post caused a lot of people to feel enraged at the stranger, but it also created lots of love. Many people commented how much they adore Oliver. Dozens of strangers also shared photos of their one-eyed dogs with Greenwood. Every dog is equally adorable!
All Dogs Are Beautiful
Of course, no dogs are ugly. All Greenwood’s loyal followers reminded him of that in their kind comments. Luckily, for every cruel person, there are also dozens of people willing to support others and spread positivity.
“What I do want to also share with you is the countless number of smiles [Oliver] somehow manages to magically plant onto the faces of people as they pass us by. It really is a wonderful thing to go on a walk with Oliver, and a sight to behold!” wrote Greenwood. “If Oliver has taught me anything, it’s that there are far, far more good people in this world than bad.”
Oliver isn’t letting one person’s judgment get to him. If anyone ever insults your furry friend, just remember that there are thousands of dog lovers out there with compliments to spare. So, let’s focus on those kind-hearted individuals instead of the hurtful ones.
