The Silicon Valley Humane Society and SF Gate shared a video of a man’s amazingly beautiful story this week and it is touching the hearts of many across the globe.
Six years ago, Eric O’Grey had a wake up call after he caused a flight to be delayed because the fight staff couldn’t find a seatbelt extension large enough to fit him. He weighed over 300 pounds, was diagnosed with type-2 diabetes, and high blood pressure. His doctor had also warned him that without any changes, he would only live for about five more years.
O’Grey decided enough was enough and went to see a nutritionist for help and guidance. The nutritionist advised him to first visit an animal shelter and adopt a dog, since this would get him out of the house and would force him to be more socially interactive. That is when O’Grey met Peety, who wound up saving his life.
Watch the video to hear O’Grey’s incredibly heartbreaking and inspiring story and SHARE it with your friends and family on Facebook today.
Eric & Peety (from Humane Society Silicon Valley)Eric weighed over 300 pounds, had type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and his doctor told him he would be dead in 5 years unless he changed. They suggested a dog. Eric went to the Humane Society Silicon Valley and said he wanted an obese, middle-aged dog, so they would have something in common. What happened next transformed their lives.
