“The only creatures that are evolved enough to convey pure love are dogs and infants.” ~ Johnny Depp

In our last post, “The Healing Power of Animals,” we talked about animals helping humans to heal.

An article I came across yesterday ago talks about the way a boxer named Romeo helped people heal while he was in the final stages of a fatal illness. His mistress, Riina Cooke, did her best to make his final days as easy and as much fun as possible. She even created a Facebook page for him.

The dog, a boxer named Romeo, became an inspiration to many before he died. As Riina put it:

I have thousands of messages from people saying he’s helped them with their grieving process and that they’ve now given their dogs bucket lists. I’ve had people tell me it’s changed their perspective on their dying animals or even family members, and how they want to stop hurting and instead enjoy every last moment.”

Here’s a video of Romeo’s final days.
