Shane Godfrey was hospitalized for over a month fighting an almost deadly flu bug. When he finally came home, over 50 pounds lighter after his ordeal, his rescue dog Willie had no idea who he was—until he gave Shane a good sniff!
Shane found Willie abandoned as a puppy and their bond is deep. One look at the wiggle dance Willie does when he recognizes his person will bring a happy tear to your eye. Dogs are truly the best thing in our lives.
“I had lost 50 pounds in the hospital and am sure I looked different,” Shane told The Dodo. “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.”
Reunited after over a month
So happy together
