There was a painful decision but fortunately, a nurse took action.
John Burley, who was hospitalized due to a serious illness, had no choice but to part with his beloved dog. An agonizing decision… Luckily, the nurse helped.
The day before Thanksgiving, 60-year-old John Burley was hospitalized with a serious illness. Boomer, his 13-year-old four-legged companion, couldn’t stay home alone…
A 60-year-old man has made the difficult decision to give him up to the Roman Society for the Protection of Animals from an orphanage in upstate New York.
After hearing about this heartbreaking breakup, nurse Jennifer Smith wanted to help. A 41-year-old woman rushed to the shelter, according to Newsweek.
That day, Jennifer paid for the adoption, took Boomer to the vet, and went shopping for her new little protégé. Food, basket and toys, the dog is spoiled by his new owner.
John Burley, devastated by the loss of his best friend, could not bear the thought of leaving him in the hands of strangers…
When Jennifer told him the good news, the patient felt great relief. His heart, broken by this tragic separation, was quickly healed by the nurse.
While in the hospital, she called John every day to tell him about her favorite hairdresser.
After hospitalization, John learned that he needed rehabilitation sessions. She decided to enroll in Greater Rehab and Nursing, the facility where Jennifer works.
As a sixty-year-old man settles into his new room, Boomer and his guardian angel pay him a little surprise visit.
“When he saw that they had arrived, he began to cry and reached for his friend,” one of his colleagues explained. “He was so happy to see the dog and so grateful to Jennifer.”
