Here’s a sweet video making the rounds on social media which captures that touching truth better than most. In it, an elderly man is seen out for a walk with his faithful pup — though framed within that simple scene is something unforgettable.
The most patient dog in the world: Devoted dachshund goes for a VERY slow walk so his elderly owner can keep up
Despite the fact that the man, slow-moving with cane in hand, is unable to keep up with the flow of foot-traffic around him, the patient little dog is seen calmly keeping pace with each step of his labored steps along the way.
There are few additional details about this man and dog, or where this clip was recorded, but much can still be gleaned from this short snapshot of their lives. For older folks, having a canine companion around comes with a variety of health benefits, including reducing stress, lowering blood pressure and improving overall well-being.
