While walking in Dartmouth Nova Scotia, Bryant Thompson spotted a man that was walking his dog through the park and he noticed that it was not a typical dog walk, he had him lying in a wagon and bundled up in blankets so he doesn’t feel cold.When Thompson saw his and his dog in his wagon he took some pictures from the distance.
Bryant started talking with the dog’s owner, and he found out that the poor dog has ALS (Degenerative myelopathy, or better known as Lou Gehrig’s disease), so the poor dog was unable to walk on her own.
Mature dogs usually between the ages of 8-14 years get affected by ALS, and gets worse until the poor animal is no longer able to walk and is paraplegic in the rear limbs.The kind man didn’t want that this condition prevents his loyal dog from experiencing the world, so he continues to walk her on a wagon.
“I told him he was a great person for doing that, because I know there are many who wouldn’t,” Thompson wrote in a Facebook post, which quickly went viral. “He just said that she would do the same for him and kept trucking. It’s hard to type this without tearing up.”
Dogs stay loyal to their humans, that’s why they deserve all the care we give to them.
