He ran off the ship and ran to the maripa, where he approached Kim, the maripa’s dock captain. “He approached her and instead of barking, jumping and licking her like he usually does, he stopped right in front of her and lay down on his side,” Brady Popp, public relations mapper for CaroliEast Health System, told The Geezer.
Bυbυ took Kim back to the ship, where he discovered that Armstroпg had suffered a stroke and called 911. Paramedics took Armstroпg to the hospital, while Kim cared for Bυbυ.
Bυbυ’s quick actions helped his father recover quickly. Armstrog, on the other hand, was sadly missing his little friend after weeks in the hospital and rehab center. “I cried in Rυdy’s room to hear about Bυbυ’s role in his life, and I had the pleasure of sitting with him for over an hour, hearing story after story about his life, his time at the Naʋy, and their bond, especially with Bυbυ. ” Popp said. “The fact that he has no close friends or family led me to try to orchestrate a relationship between him and Bυbυ.”
Armstrog was wheeled to the facility’s lawn on the day of the meeting, where he was unable to share his enthusiasm. “Rdy was practically bouncing around in his wheelchair like a kid at Christmas approaching his arrival,” Popp said. When Kim and Bυbυ arrived, the dog seemed perplexed to find himself in such familiar surroundings. But it didn’t take him long to recognize his father.
“When Rυdy took off his mask, Bυbυ immediately recognized him, jumped onto his lap and started licking his face.” -Popp commented-. “It was a beautiful moment, and everyone in the room was on the verge of tears at Rυdy and Bυbυ’s obvious joy.” Armstrog has now been freed and is back on his ship with his beloved Bυbυ, ready to hug and kiss him for another day.
