Former Marine John Vincent, who fought in Vietnam, is 96 years old.
The veteran lived alone, did not have a family. All he had was his beloved dog Patch. He almost never parted with it, even when riding a Harley.
The dog even had tiny glasses for such trips.
When the old man was brought to the hospice, there was no one to leave the dog with. Patch was temporarily transferred to an animal shelter.
Soon, the shelter staff was informed that John had little time.
The old man made a last request. He wanted to see Patch and hug him one last time.
«When we found out about it, we immediately agreed. We decided to do everything in our power to make this meeting happen. We quickly found him, Patch,» said the director of Animal Protection.
Patch’s last meeting with John was very touched.
«Yeah, it’s me, it’s Dad,» John said as Patch licked his face. — Are you glad to see me? I’m very glad to see you. »
The animal care service posted photos on Facebook from John and Patch’s last meeting. It was a touching farewell.
«It was such a heartfelt moment! They were so happy to see each other to say goodbye. It was an honor for me to fulfill the last wish of a veteran,» Danny said.
Patch returned to the shelter. But he was not left alone. He has already found a new owner.
