In 1953, Sally Rewehooeern moved to the United States from her hometown in Holland. Now 92 years old, Sally has lived alone ever since her husband died in 1990. She’s been lonely, especially since her kids are scattered across the country.
Recently, Sally’s neighbours in Mount Vernon, Washington, experienced a loss of their own when their beloved senior dog Blizzard passed away.
Then one day, the neighbours got a 15-week-old Saint Bernard puppy named Brody — and on the day they brought him home, Brody wandered off. Sure enough, Brody ended up at Sally’s house down the street… and the widow and goofy pup have been best friends ever since.
Whenever possible, Brody follows Sally everywhere. His owners constantly catch him following her around the yard as she works in her garden, walking with her to the mailbox and even hopping into her car with her on a daily basis!
Sally, who grew up on a farm in Holland and was surrounded by dogs as a little girl, says Brody has brought her back to her roots and has raised her spirits.
Now, she’s more active than ever, thanks to her furry new friend.
