There are endless reasons to love a dog. That is because, every day, dogs tirelessly prove that they have so much goodness to provide to this world. And in a world full of selfishness, hatred, uncertainty, turmoils, and sadness, indeed, there is room – a giant room – for their genuine goodness.
This heaven-sent canine goodness can be seen on a rescue dog named Boomer. He is a qualified therapy dog at East Anglia University with Dave Brown’s help, his very supportive dad.
The duo’s role in the University is significant as they assist its security team by helping students strengthen their emotional well-being. Boomer and Dave also help them to cope up with extremely stressful situations. And for them seeing that they are helping a lot of students in this area is already a reward itself.
They were recently greeted with very delighting news: both of them received recognition for their selfless and inspiring efforts in helping students strengthen their emotional aspect. Therefore, Boomer and David were invited to receive their award for the Year’s Security Innovation Initiative.
But when everything was all set, the global pandemic broke out, which canceled all thinkable public events throughout the world — including their awards event. Yes, the much-awaited event was canceled, but this unexpected event didn’t faze the duo. Instead of letting the pandemic drag down their spirits, the father and son decided to make something that would bring grins to their faces.
Dave Brown organized an event that would somehow compensate for the canceled event. But he didn’t forget to consider following safety protocols such as organizing only a small event and social distancing.
In their mini-event, the duo was dressed in tuxedos as if they were attending an awards event. And what they did was also a great example to their students, which shows that unexpected and disappointing circumstances should not sway one. No matter what happens, everyone must find a way to be happy and appreciate life even better.
