Dad Takes His Senior Dog With Arthritis On A “Walk” Every Day

When Tonino Vitale noticed that his 13-year-old Labrador’s energy levels were diminishing, he knew something was wrong. And he was right – Dylan was then diagnosed with arthritis, the poor dog’s joints were hurting him so badly he couldn’t run or walk like before.

Tonino knew that Dylan wouldn’t live long if he did nothing about it, so this dedicated Italian dad decided to take Dylan out every day for some fresh air. Because of Dylan’s arthritis, Tonino chose to build him a cart instead, so Dylan could sit and be pushed around on the walks with ease.

On their “walks,” Tonino noticed that Dylan seemed to get back to the happy doggie that he was before arthritis. During one of their daily morning walks, the pair were spotted by a neighbor, who caught their ritual on camera. The video footage quickly went viral as so many people praised Tonino’s efforts with the elderly Dylan.

However, for Tonino, it’s no effort at all. In fact, it’s payback for the time when Tonino was in his deepest grief after losing his father, and Dylan was there for him. To Tonino, it’s only normal to make sure Dylan is comfortable and has everything he needs – even if it requires Tonino going out of his way to make sure his best boy feels loved and well-cared for.

What a precious bond these two share!
