Denver Hospital Worker Sings ‘Lean on Me’ As His Dog Howls Along In Viral Video

When times get tough, we all could use a loyal friend to lean on and there is no better friend than a dog.

Dogs have a way of making everything better and bringing a smile to our faces when we need it the most. People around the world are stressed due to the global pandemic, especially those working on the front lines. However, one man relaxed by singing a song with his dog.

Tate Hegstrom, a Denver hospital worker, decided to grab his guitar and sing ‘Lean on Me’. His faithful husky, Kovu, couldn’t let him sing alone, so he joined in by howling.
