Dogs love the simple pleasures in life: food, playtime, and of course, long walks. But what happens when your dog’s mobility is hindered by injury or illness?
For one man, the answer was simple: You adapt.
Bryan Thompson saw one kind-hearted doggy dad doing just that one day as he pulled his dog behind him in a wagon. The dog, Thompson was told, has ALS, which sometimes affects older dogs. But the unidentified man was still determined to let his furry baby enjoy the fresh air, so he bundled her up and pulled her along.
Thompson, who says he doesn’t know the man, shared an emotional post with pictures of the duo enjoying their winter walk:
“I don’t know this man, and I hope he won’t mind this post. This guy with an awesome heart was walking his dog through Shubie Park in Dartmouth, as you can see, in a wagon.
He told me she has ALS, she was all bundled up and was happy for extra love.
I told him he was a great person for doing that, because I know there are many who wouldn’t. He just said that she would do the same for him and kept trucking. It’s hard to type this without tearing up.
I hope you can share this, especially everyone who shares the lost animal posts, this guy deserves a huge dog kiss for his love of his dog.“
Our pets are our family, and it’s always heartwarming to see such kindness from a human given to the animal they love.
