Family Celebrates Christmas Early So Their Sick Dog Can Be There Too.
Christmas is a special time of the year. Holiday music is always playing in the background, decorations are everywhere, and the sweet, welcoming smell of food is the perfect setting to put everyone in a joyful mood.
Even family pets get in on the fun. Whether it’s letting their humans dress them in ridiculous looking sweaters, playing with the tree ornaments, or stealing the baking off the kitchen counter, they know this is a special occasion.
One family in the United Kingdom knew their beloved dog Scooby would not make it to Christmas. Rather than let the sadness of what was about to happen consume them, they chose to celebrate the holiday with him a little early. It was the true meaning of Christmas.
Scooby had been with the family since he was a puppy. He grew up with the human kids.
At 16 years old, he could no longer go on regular walks, he had to be carried. He was also suffering from back problems, dementia. Additionally, he was blind and deaf.
Molly Bradshaw and her family were on a vacation in the United States but she returned when she heard Scooby was not doing well. "From spending time alone with Scoobs whilst the rest of the family were still in America, I could tell he had taken a turn for the worst," she says.
Fearing he would not make it to Christmas, they chose to celebrate early. Bradshaw and her friends decorated the house and put up the Christmas tree.
The rest of the family flew back to the United Kingdom to be with Scooby.
