Dogs Amazing Reaction When Reunited With It's Sick Owner
Nothing sums up the old phrase that dog's are 'man's best friend' better than this video.
When Godfrey was diagnosed in February with double pneumonia and then kidney failure, sepsis and encephalitis his doctors feared the worst.
"They weren't sure if I would make it for a while," he told The Dodo.
Godfrey was in hospital for five weeks, and fortunately his condition eventually improved.
Godfrey's sister had taken care of his faithful dog Willie during this time, and when they were eventually reunited to say it was special is an understatement.
"I had lost 50 pounds (22 kilos) in the hospital and am sure I looked different," said Godfrey.
"At first he was unsure and barked at me but once he got close enough to smell me he recognized me immediately and totally went wild with excitement. It still makes me tear up when I see the video."
"He won't leave my side now that I've gotten back home."
