Hospitalized Man Was Not Recognized by His Own Dog Until Pup Sniffed Him

Shane Godfrey recently spent 5 weeks in the hospital. The result? This hospitalized man was not recognized by his own dog!

 

 

A year ago a lonely pup wandered onto Shane Godrey’s front porch. That sad little dog soon had a loving home and a new name, Willie.

From that moment on, the two were inseparable. Until an unexpected case of the flu turned into a 5 week hospital stay for Godfrey.

“They weren’t sure if I would make it for a while, he told The Dodo.

But make it he did! When Godfrey was finally strong enough to be discharged, he left the hospital 50lbs lighter.  Willie the pup stayed with Godfrey’s sister while he was in the hospital.  Shane couldn’t wait to be reunited with his best friend.

When the time came to see his friend, it was apparently something was wrong.  Willie didn’t recognize him and started barking.  Each time Godfrey calls to the dog, Willie came a little closer but still very unsure of this much slimmer man!  It wasn’t until Willie finally made it close enough to sniff his owner that he showed his true excitement over having Godfrey home.

We loved seeing how excited Willie was when he realized that the skinny man was his best friend. Look at his tail wag – Willie almost couldn’t stand up; he was so excited!

Godfrey is quick to thank his family and friends for the support during this time:

“I just want to send out a thank you to everyone who has prayed and sent good thoughts and well wishes my way…” Godfrey stated on his Facebook page. 

We add our thoughts and prayers for a full recovery too!
