“My grandpa loved his dog Lil Fee,” Miguel said. “She would follow him around everywhere. He would bring her everywhere he could. My grandpa had been battling cancer for the past couple of years, but last week it took over his whole body.”
King's wife had been bringing pictures of their dog in to give him a little bit of light in his day, but the nurses thought they could do a little more. “The nurses always heard my grandma talking about Lil Fee. So they encouraged her and helped her get the dog in," Miguel explained. “They had my aunt carry the dog in a really big purse. For the first time that day, he moved his arm in attempts to pet his Lil Fee. It was a moment I’ll never forget.”
Miguel shared photos of the moment that her grandfather finally got to see his dog, and the picture is heartbreaking. He was able to say goodbye to his best friend before he lost his battle to cancer. It just goes to show you how much these animal companions mean to people, even in their final moments.
