Dog returns power of speech to man with Alzheimer’s

On her Mama CEO blog, Lisa Abeyta posted a deeply touching story about the video she had posted on YouTube. Her father, whose speech has disappeared as his dementia has deepened, had been having a chat with her dog. Abeyta had taken video of the interaction and posted a link to it on Reddit.

The short video is a reminder that inside every Alzheimer’s patient is a person who needs our love, patience and compassion. Over six million people have watched the video. Watch it, and you will understand why.
