Caring community grants dying stray dog his last wish (VIDEO)

Dogart_thumb By Ellen | August 19, 2012 | Comments (71)

An ailing stray dog named Ol Boy was spotted in Singapore by a member of the public, who asked Save Our Street Dogs (SOSD) to help. What started out as a routine rescue of a stray dog turned into a touching lesson of life and love for everyone involved. This is incredibly moving, as Ol Boy was finally able to receive the love, care and compassion in his final days that he never received before.

Save Our Street Dogs is a non-profit organisation that rescues and rehomes stray dogs in Singapore. The president of Save Our Street Dogs is Dr. Siew Tuck Wah.

This made me cry, this is how I bury my loved pets, with flowers and ceremony. All animals want to be loved - not just dogs (gods) if you wouldn't eat your cat or your dog, please help this world and all it's animals by being compassionate to all - animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment or abuse. I'm a firm believer that when the whole world starts eating a compassionate diet this will extend to all living creatures.... Begin now, and don't make your stomach a graveyard of animals that want to live!
May you rest in Peace ole boy and thank you for giving him love that he deserved. very touching.
I have two rescues from Spain, one of them found on the street. Almost 50% underweight, dirt and scared. This could have been her had she not been rescued. I cried my eyes out for you, Ol Boy. I'm so happy you got to die in peace, warm and loved.
TY guys for this video... May Ol Boy rest in peace now... <3
fucking thank you to those people who gave the dog the one thing he needed! I love you guys!
Loved this video. Cried all the way through. I wish no dog ever had to go through this. Thank you for caring for him in his final days.
This video was so touching....tears of joy and sadness filled my eyes. It is so sad that such a cute doggie went through this. Thanking the Lord for these wonderful & amazing people that took part in giving this doggie love, shelter, & caring for him til the end. It was beautiful to see him with awrapped in a blanket with flowers. This doggie for sure is in paradise. God Bless.
So sad.Its such a shame that Ol boy did'nt have the life he would of wanted but so glad he finally got in before he went :( RIP X
Rest in peace Ol Boy. I can't top crying watching this. I think even my dog knows it. He came to me and comforted me the whole time I am watching this. Yes, dog have feeling just like human. I wish more people would realize that and help any stray animal they see whenever they can instead of just ignoring them. Thank you for granting sweet Ol Boy last wish.
I'm still in tears as I write how touching this story was for me to watch. If only others understood that animals have feelings too maybe they would take better care of them. R.I.P.,Ole Boy, you can run free without any more pain.
this has just broke my heart i cant stop crying x x x x R.I.P. Ol BOY . . Now free from pain and suffering you can run with all the other beautiful doggie angels x x x x x x
Thank you for being so wonderful and loving to Ol Boy.
I cried like a little boy who got lost and couldn't find home...if only more people could care about stray animals, things wouldn't have been much more different. We are so mired in the "perfect world" that we live in now that we are consciously trying to avoid, ignore social problems including welfare for animals, constantly reminding us that as long as we don't watch scenes like these, they will automatically disappear. They don't, unfortunately. More efforts need to instilled in PR, Ads. More campaigns need to be raised. On top of that, more money...
God Bless you for granting a final wish.
Lord, God bless the good souls on this earth. Thank you for doing so much for this poor little thing...he went away well. And now he is in peace in heaven! It is a beautiful ending<3
A beautiful video. I cried the whole time, for Ol Boy and all the dogs unwanted and unloved. God bless the wonderful people who honored him at the end of his life.
...cried as if he were my own dog... it's beautiful how Ol' Boy, instead of dying some anonymous death, through the compassion and care of some very special wonderful people, left behind a legacy of Love and Kindness... that will always be... ...thank you ol' boy for the feelings, thoughts, lessons, and Love you left for us... God has a new forever dog... and the Universe, a new star...

Peace and love and kisses ol boy
