If you’ve ever had a dog, you know that dogs become a precious member of your family. And as our pets age, they need more care especially if their mobility is affected in the aging process of old age.
But what if your dog can’t walk on his own anymore?
A Massachusetts man is being hailed as a social media hero for going above and beyond to make sure his ᴘᴀʀᴀʟʏᴢᴇᴅ dog can still enjoy life’s simple pleasures.
Bryant Thompson was walking in Dartmouth, Massachusetts when he spotted a man pulling his dog in a carriage through Shubie Park. But this was no ordinary wagon ride because he wrapped all of his fluffy baby in blankets to shield it from the cold and the dog wasn’t sitting in the wagon as you would expect and it was lying down.
Feeling a little warmer in his heart after the dedication and feeling a little curious, Thompson took a few photos from a distance. Thompson then approached the puppy’s owner and started making small talk.Then he learned that the dog had ALS and couldn’t walk on its own.
And unfortunately, ALS and other types of chronic myopathy are common in older dogs, especially larger dogs. But this man is not willing to let this illness stop his girl from experiencing the greatest passion of a great outdoor roaming dog! He takes his girl on beautiful carriage rides so that she still experiences the world instead of being its ᴘʀɪsᴏɴᴇʀ.
“I told him he was a great guy to do it, because I know a lot of people wouldn’t, He just said she would do the same to him and continued. continue to drive the truck.” Thompson wrote on Facebook.
Our founder did the same with his beloved dog Shadow. They would go for a walk and then sit in a peaceful place so Shadow could enjoy the beautiful outdoors he used to run over as a small dog.
Dogs are the sweetest creatures on earth and they deserve the best we give them.
The man who took his ᴘʀɪsᴏɴᴇʀ dog for a walk in the park said the best thing was “she will do the same for me”. This is how we should all treat our pets and each other the way we want to be treated with love and respect!
What a wonderful caring man! How lucky that beautiful dog is to have such a wonderful home.
That precious dog is so lucky to have you in his life.
