Dog And Owner Recover In Hospital Room Together | Dogalize

Maybe the firts case ever of a dog and his owner recovering in a hospital room together. It is what happened at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

An IED that detonated in Afghanistan left a military dog and his handler in need of medical care, and in a sweet turn of events, they were roomed together and are now both recovering.

“I am a member AE crew of the 379 EAES (Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron) who transported Rocky and his handler from Afghanistan to Germany. We were very concerned about all three involved in the blast and we are very glad to see they are doing well,” commented Sherry Sexton on the Facebook post from the 89th Military Police Brigade

“We love our job. I had soldier Brown medicated to rest on the flight. Rocky was injured as well and exhausted. He got lots of attention. It just hurts our hearts when our working fur babies are injured. They can’t talk to us and tell us what to do for them so we do the medical stuff – but we shower them with hugs and pets.”

The picture showing them together in the hospital room went soon viral on the web.
