Vincent, born in Montana and raised on a farm, has owned Patch since the dog was a newborn puppy and the two often ride his motorcycle together.

Seems like Patc knew it just started whimpering like he was anticipating something. Vincent said he contracted the disease when a neighbor’s dog gave birth to a litter of puppies

He was the smallest and I wanted one that could ride on my bike. I only have a hair on my chin, called a patch. And he has a little white patch, so we’re patch brothers’ : Vincent said.

The two will ride Vincent’s motorcycle with little Patch wearing his own tiny glasses. After Vincent retired the couple would go for a walk every night.

The animal welfare organization shared about the two’s sweet reunion: ‘The two were very happy to meet each other and say goodbye. It’s an honor to make this Vincent’s last wish come true.’
