Man Takes His Paralyzed Dog For A Stroll In A Wagon Every Day, Says She’d Do The Same For Him


hen you love someone, there’s nothing you wouldn’t do to make them happy, and this dog owner is going the extra mile for his pup.  Bryan Thompson was enjoying a stroll through Shubie Park in Dartmouth, Massachusetts, when he saw something unusual.

A man was pulling a wagon, and in the wagon, bundled up and snug as can be, lay a dog.

Thompson was intrigued and after snapping a few photos he decided satisfy his curiosity and approach the man.

What he then learned was both beautiful and sad.

The man told Thompson that his pup had ALS.

Canine ALS, or degenerative myelopathy, is a slowly progressive spinal cord disorder that eventually leaves the afflicted dog paralyzed in the back legs.

The man’s dog could no longer walk, but he didn’t want her to be deprived of the outside world and miss out on the fresh air, the adventure and the joy that going to the park means.

So, he got creative and decided to take his pup out in a wagon and give the sweet girl her daily walks that way.

Thompson was touched by the man’s love for his dog and posted about it on facebook

He said that when he praised the man for his actions, the man just said that his dog would have done the same thing for him.

It’s absolutely beautiful to see such a pure expression of love and affection and such a strong bond between a man and his dog.
