Tavare spent two weeks in an intensive care unit at the hospital while he got surgery and two blood transfusions. Not only was he in a lot of pain physically, but he was also distraught after being away from his furry best friend for so long.

Finally this past week, after not seeing Mr. Kippy for so long, Tavare was finally wheeled outside to reunite with him. The heartwarming reunion was caught on camera and is so touching to see! Tavare was in tears as he held his dog close and hugged him tight. Mr. Kippy was equally excited and jumped all over his owner.
