Heart melting: Man Carries His Paralyzed Dog In a Special Wagon To Help Him Explore The World

While going out for a walk in Dartmouth, Massachusetts, Bryant Thompson noticed a man walking his dog through Shubie Park.

However, this was not a typical dog walk. 

The dog was bundled up in blankets to keep warm and was lying in a wagon. Bryant spoke with the dog's owner and learned that the poor dog has ALS (Degenerative myelopathy, or better known as Lou Gehrig's disease), and is unable to walk on her own. For this reason, the kind man uses the wagon to help his furry best friend explore the world and get some fresh air. 

Seeing these photos, we can totally understand why Bryan wrote on his viral post: "It's hard to type this without tearing up." 

Thanks for sharing this wonderful story, Bryan!

Another story that truly shows the importance of micro-chipping your beloved pets! 

11 years ago, in New York, Maggie Welz lost her beloved feline, Tiger. 

Fast-forward to today, that same Tiger was rescued and brought in by the Dutchess County SPCA, where they discovered he was micro-chipped! According to SPCA officials, it took staff member Carol O'Connell three years to get close enough to the missing feline that had been coming by her home every now and then.

O'Connell told Eyewitness News, "Each year he came to my house, he deteriorated more and more each year, and that's when I realized either somebody just abandoned him or he just was missing or lost or he was just a feral cat. This spring he started to come around a little bit more in the mornings so I started to work harder to try to gain his trust." 

Seems like he knew who to turn to for some help.

SPCA officials said they she borrowed a scanner from the shelter to check if he was micro-chipped on a whim. With the information they were able to locate Maggie Welz and finally reunite her with her Tiger!
