Over the past several days, we've posted a number of stories that emphasize the adorable bond between dogs and children.
But the following footage is cute and memorable for an unusually special reason.
It features a six-year old named Jack who is recovery from having a brain tumor removed.
As a result of the procedure, Jack has limited mobility on the left side of his body, a problem his family is trying to rectify via physical therapy that involves Jack lifting up his arm in order to feed his uncle’s dog.
If he can feed the pet four treats, Jack will earn a new bike from his mom. Watch the little patient try his hardest and take note of how he giggles each time the dog gobbles up a treat from his hand:
Talk about a creative way to help someone recover, huh?
So cute. So memorable. Such an important reminder of how dogs can play a key role in the lives of parents and children.
Speaking of which...
