Dogs always have long been known as a symbol of loyalty. This has been proven and praised in films and stories. And if you are having or ever had dogs, you will know how wonderful they are. They might love you even more than they love themself and build an inseparable bond with their humans.
The story of Nero (the dog in this story) below is a great example. However, you might burst into tears because of the sad ending. But more than that, the story will make you appreciate what you have, especially your cute furry friends. And if you don’t have such a friend, you might consider adopting a dog to make your life more meaningful.
Let’s talk about Stuart Hutchison (the owner of the dog in this story) first. Stuart was detected to have a tumor in his brain in 2011, and this was the time Nero (the dog in this story) came into his life.
Although Stuart had undergone chemotherapy sessions and surgery to remove the tumor, his cancer came back stronger. The disease had spread to most of his brain, bones, and pelvis. Stuart tried a new treatment, but the success was minimal. His life seemed less harsh when he has a best friend Nero as a good treatment.
Nero seemed to deeply understand that his owner was very sick. He followed him everywhere and pleased his owner. He loved to be cuddled in the owner’s arms, the bond between them became stronger and stronger.
Stuart knew that he was in the last days of his life. He left the dog in his house for a woman to take care of him and decided to move with his wife Danielle to his parents’ house.
One day, Danielle’s glasses broke. Her father-in-law offered to come over to the couple’s house and take a pair of glasses. Upon arriving at his son’s house, the man realized Nero got sick. He immediately took Nero to a nearby vet because he knew this dog meant a lot to his son.
“When he got there, he realized that the dog had gotten sick and took him to the emergency vet. They said something in his spine was broken but he had been totally fine before that.” Fiona (Stuart’s mother) said.
In the end, whatever comes must come. Stuart passed away in the afternoon on that day. And Nero breathed his last 15 minutes later. The incredible connection between Nero and Stuart Hutchison. They might be very happy in heaven now.
