It’s been tough going lately for Kiefer. After a double eye
enucleation (removal of the eyeballs) a couple years back, the
terminally ill dog’s condition was steadily decreasing. And for
the last couple weeks, the poor fella was barely moving at all.
So when one night at 1:30 AM he jumped up and insisted on going
for a walk, his owner knew exactly what needed to happen next.
The best friends went to a pizza joint for a slice to share,
while the owner photographed Kiefer enjoying every bit of
their field trip.
When the owner posted his story on Imgur, the response was overwhelming. But not
without the wave of criticism for “torturing” the animal by
keeping him alive in this condition: “To those saying ‘I’ve
kept him alive for my own selfishness’ – you know what, I’m
not going to dignify such a dumb comment with a response. I
spent a considerable amount of money for his operation
instead of having him put down. If he was in pain after the
operation, I would have made the right call. But he wasn’t,
he lived another 2 happy amazing years.”
