A 15-yr-old Dog’s Gift

‘The next time you are a little down, do an act of service — it might just be the gift you need.’

This was the message that came to us through a mail that shared the story of Roadie, a 15 year old dog and his gift to a grieving man. This story was penned by Laura Simpson, a tireless advocate for animals.

Laura writes….”I have the pleasure of meeting hundreds of incredible heroes, but this one caught me off guard. Your hair will stand on end as you read the story of this man and this dog who picked one another up time and time again: ‘I saw in the front yard what appeared to be a very old dog that was in obvious distress. He would walk in a semi-circle, then fall to the ground, then struggle back to his feet and do it again. I saw him do this same thing at least three times as I walked over to him. This was to be by far my easiest rescue because this poor old boy was in no shape to run from me, but also the most heartbreaking”.

  1. A beautiful story. Salute the man for his tenacity and kindness. What a golden heart to painstakingly look after the poor darling despite paucity of funds. Love the friend too for sponsoring the treatment. Good decision of leasing a good life, short though it may be to the lovely darling. A real heart warming and touching story (not to mention the tears running down). I honestly wish our dear Almighty made more such souls to take care of his less fortunate creations. A BIG GOD BLESS U COMES STRAIGHT FROM MY HEART.
