Woman Took Her Beloved Dog On An Epic Adventure And It’s Heartbreaking

Beautiful story. This made me cry and smile.

Lauren Fern Watt had been through a lot with her 160-pound English Mastiff, Gizelle. That’s why when her beloved dog was diagnosed with terminal bone cancer six months ago, she was totally crushed. Gizelle wasn’t only her bestfriend, she was also her roommate and confidant. Who helped her through college, boyfriends and moving to the big and scary New York City.

Instead of spending all her time crying. Lauren decided to be strong and create a bucket-list adventure of everything they want to try before Gizelle died. From lazing on the beach to eating lots of premium ice cream.

It was my mission for us to indulge and explore life’s joys. We’d escape the city and search for waterfalls, cook lobster, and nap in the grass. We’d jump in the ocean without towels, just to enjoy the sun drying us, and never stress about details like sand in the car.

Lauren Fern Watt was devastated when her beloved dog, Gizelle, was diagnosed with terminal bone cancer last year.

Like most New Yorkers, the two were “a little repulsed” by the famous landmark, but this occasion called for a visit.

Gizelle had the chance to meet some unusual friends from the sea, but only for a short while. Soon they were sent to a pot and cooked to perfection.

They were serenaded by a man with a broken guitar, met a guy with a fish tattoo on his face and helped a lady in red kimono feed the pigeons.

Watt was told that Gizelle wouldn’t make it till Christmas, so she knew it was a must to meet Santa. Or at least his little helpers.

“Sit on the beach in the winter.”

This was the last photo of Watt and Gizelle’s adventure.

That final trip not only helped Watt cope with the loss of her pet, but also to see life for what it is: “a sweet, simple, precious adventure.”

Although there are treatments that can prevent some symptoms to get worse, the ability of the patients to handle daily tasks may dwindle as the disease progresses. That is why it is heartbreaking to see a loved one having some memory loss or losing their ability to plan and organize on their own. Day by day, you will see changes in their personality as the patient pass from one stage to another, in fact, by the time they reach the severe stage they will show some fits and become a danger to themselves.

Whenever Alzheimer’s patients are lost in their memories, they have the tendency to get confused and wander off from their homes or caring facility.

Caring for Alzheimer’s patients is an everyday struggle for health care professionals and families who want to protect them from getting lost.
