“He looked at me in every sense as though I was the greatest person on the Planet. I decided that I wanted to be the person who he thought I was.” – Eric O’Grey
What would you do if your doctor told you to prepare and purchase a funeral plot because you would likely need one in the next five years? Definitely not the advice you’d like to hear.
Eric O’Grey was at the point of losing hope 6 years ago, but everything changed when he met Peety, a shelter dog, that results in proving the doctor wrong and saving his life.
At the age of 51 in 2010, weighed 340 pounds with Type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. As a last resort, he found a nutritionist and was immediately advised to adopt a shelter dog. Following the doctor’s advice, he went to Humane Society Silicon Valley and asked to adopt an obese, middle-aged dog so he would have something in common – that’s how he met Peety.
What happens next changed their lives. Let’s watch their touching story.
