Lucy Giles is 45 years old and lives with his family and beloved dogs in Didcota railway town located in England. One of them is called brody. He is a Newfoundland of nearly 70 kilograms with a big heart.
Lucy adopted him in July 2021 when her husband Ashley62, had been in hospital for 6 months due to complications from Covid-19.
The giant canid breed is renowned for its water rescue skills due to its intelligence and natural selflessness.
Lucy didn’t train him for that, but brody did indeed perform a heroic deed.
“He had a strange behavior that I did not understand right away”
From September 2021, brody began to stubbornly sniff his mistress’s chest and snuggle tenderly against her.
“It was mostly when I was sitting, either watching TV or resting, and always in the same place on my right side”clarified Lucy at NewsWeek.
At first, the 50-year-old thought that her faithful 4-legged friend was eager for attention and caresses, but his insistent actions finally alerted her.
Lucy therefore self-diagnosed and felt a disturbing lump in her right breast. She therefore consulted a doctor who confirmed that she had a serious illness.
“The hospital called me one afternoon. The doctor immediately said that I had Her2-positive cancer. The news was hard to take”clarified Lucy.
Since then, the woman has undergone heavy treatment. brody supports her in this difficult ordeal by bringing her all her love.
