Here’s a story that’s sure to melt your heart!
When the mayor of Attleboro, Massachusetts found out that his 10-year-old Japanese wolf dog Mura had only a few months to live, he decided to take her on the trip of a lifetime.
Paul Heroux has been Mura’s best friend since she was 8 weeks old, and he wanted to take her back to see the place where she was born – which happens to be Victoria, BC!
Cuteness overload warning!!! As if everyone here has not already had enough of Mura, here’s a picture of what she looks…
Mura was diagnosed with terminal cancer in September.
So a month later, Heroux set out on a road trip with her, covering 24 states and over 13,600 km in 12 days to bring her to Vancouver Island.
He shared photos and stories about their incredible journey on Facebook, garnering the attention of several media companies around the world, and their story has since gone viral.
The dynamic duo got to meet and play with other Japanese wolf dogs in Victoria before heading back home.
Mura is wondering why we are now taking a ferry ride to Vancouver Island. She’ll soon find out!
