A young American man recently re-shared the touching story between his father and his loyal pet dog on his personal page, taking away the tears of many people. The guy said the incident happened more than a year ago, but only now he decided to tell everything.

Specifically, the boy’s father is a veteran named Daniel Hove. After many years serving the country in the US Air Force, Mr. Daniel returned to work as a firefighter in his hometown of Burnsville, Minnesota. In 2011, he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Due to illness, he was forced to retire in 2012.

During the treatment, family and friends were always there, encouraging and supporting Mr. Daniel through the exhausting chemotherapy sessions. Mr. Daniel also has another special companion, the 11-year-old pet dog Gunner. The dog was always at his bedside, becoming a great source of encouragement for him during his 9 years of fighting cancer.

Even if Mr. Daniel had to stay in the hospital, Gunner would follow him around and hang out in the ward, lying under his bed and waiting while he was undergoing chemotherapy. Worried that the dog sleeping on the hospital floor would catch a cold, Mr. Daniel’s family specially prepared a small bed for him, right next to Mr. Daniel’s bed.

Having been together for a long time, intelligent dogs can feel the emotions and pain that their owners have to go through. Every time he received chemotherapy, Mr. Daniel was in pain, the discomfort from within made him irritable. At such times, Gunner also became depressed. Whenever Mr. Daniel is unhappy, the dog’s mood is also not good.

“When my dad gets agitated, Gunner gets agitated, and if my dad doesn’t calm down, the dog doesn’t calm down either. If my father does not respond, so will Gunner,” said Heather Nicoletti – Daniel’s daughter.

Gunner’s condition got worse and worse, with no cure. The doctor helplessly informed that Gunner would not be able to last much longer, hoping that the family would accompany the dog for the last time.

One afternoon, the faithful dog took its last breath, leaving Mr. Daniel forever. Fortunately, Gunner passed away very gently and peacefully, without suffering any pain.
