Loneliness is an ugly thing. Nobody – not even animals – deserve to feel alone. Everyone deserves to have at least one friend who is there for them.
For Rex, an elderly disabled Boxer, his best friend came in the unlikely form of a guinea pig named S’mores.
The two met and formed a very deep bond that resulted in S’mores suddenly going everywhere with Rex – to the point that he received his own special basket that could be attached to Rex’s wheelchair.
Their story of friendship began after Rex – who has degenerative myelopathy – was rescued from his shelter’s euthanasia list. From there, Rex found himself with a new home with Holly Walthers.
Things were great for Rex until he lost one of his friends. This devastating blow caused Rex to become lonely and depressed, prompting Holly to start the search for a new friend for Rex.
That is when S’mores entered the picture. He had been rescued from an abusive situation. When Holly introduced S’mores to Rex, the two bonded instantaneously.
From there, it was absolute bliss for the two, who spend their days in each other’s company eating, cuddling, and sharing daily walks with one another.
