Dog With Cancer Lives Just Long Enough To See Her Dad Again

 This was one touching reunion that made me cry! Kermie, the dog, was diagnosed with cancer a month after her soldier father, Eric, left on an eight-month deployment. She was only given 2 to 3 months to live. But she persisted until, just before Christmas, Eric hung home.


Eric’s wife stated:

“To put it mildly, we were devastated. Kermie was our first child, and we thought Eric would never see her again.”

“Kermie continued to do well for several months, outliving the vet’s prediction for survival.” As the end of the deployment approached, we began to harbor fantasies of an unexpected reunion. The tumor in her mouth, on the other hand, was making it increasingly difficult for her to eat and drink.” 

“November, the month of homecoming, was extremely stressful. We didn’t know if she’d make it until Eric returned. We were doing everything we could to ensure she took her medication and maintained her weight. “I was making her home-cooked meals and hand-feeding her at times.”

“Twelve days before Eric was supposed to return, we received devastating news: the deployment had been extended indefinitely.” Kermie was never going to make it until Christmas.”

“She hung on.”

“We received the best gift a few days before Christmas, after 9 long months.” It’s everything any of us wanted for Christmas.”

Although the family expected to put Kermie down within days of his return, Eric proved to be a “magic pill” for Kermie. She recovered and began to eat and drink normally again. She turned 12 a few months later, and while she was still enjoying her walks and tricks, her tumor was making her life miserable, and it was time to say goodbye.

The family shared a wonderful Dr. Seuss quote that encapsulates this touching reunion video: “Don’t cry because it’s over. “Smile because it occurred.” Please share this touching family story with your friends and family.
