Dogs are truly man’s (or woman’s) best friends – and this has been proven in countless stories of dogs’ loyalty towards their masters. Just recently, another dog has proven just that.
Charlie Bear is a 15-year-old black Labrador mix who, despite suffering from regular seizures due to his brain cancer, managed to live long enough to be in his master’s wedding.
Charlie met bride Kelly O’Connell when he was but 12 weeks old. He was abandoned in a grocery cart and was adopted by the then 19-year-old veterinary student.
“I wasn’t looking for a dog. I was 19, still living with my parents and going to college. It was the worst time in my life to even attempt to get a dog,” Kelly said told BuzzFeed News. “He came in, and I was like, ‘Yup. I’m taking this puppy home.’”
