6 Year Old Boy Loses Dog To Cancer – You May Think Differently After Reading This!
Often kids show us just how tough they really are when faced with adversity or heartache. This 6 year old boy Shane takes this to a whole new level. When Shane found out that his beloved Irish Wolfhound Belker was dying of cancer what he came out with stunned his parents and everyone else who has heard this and is a profound outlook on why dogs have short lives.
This is such an incredible account of strength and maturity through such young eyes. It tends to put everything into perspective and I guarantee that you will think differently after reading this incredible story which is courtesy of Reshareworthy:
Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish wolfhound named Belker. The dog’s owners, Ron, his wife, Lisa, and their little boy, Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.
I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn’t do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.
As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience.
The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker’s family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.
