Boy And Dog With The Same Skin Condition Are Best Friends.

A magical bond!

There is nothing more pure than a friendship between a boy and his dog. A boy named Carter, is suffering from a skin condition called vitiligo recently met Rowdy, a dog with the same skin condition. 

According to Carter's mom, the boy used to complain about his skin and his face. He hated it!


UPDATE ON ROWDY . Rowdy saw a neurologist in the ER today. They are not sure if it was a seizure or a stroke or something else. They did a lot of tests and without a "much needed" (expensive) MRI and CT Scan, we may never know. He could have a tumor or a mass causing a lot of his issues. . We left with them prescribing a new medication for seizures as well as some codeine for his pain. This could be age related, an isolated event, or he may have more episodes like today. . I want to thank EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU for the prayers, well wishes, and support! It is truly overwhelming to see the kindness and love this pup has from around the world! We love you all! Please continue to follow along the amazing adventure we are having with Carter and his mom from Arkansas! While Rowdy started his day with a scare and a trip to the ER, he was able to end it meeting up with Carter, another beautiful little girl Emma from Eugene, and some dear family friends for a play date and then squeezed in a photo shoot to boot. . This dog never ceases to amaze me with his resilience!!

Then, Carter met Rowdy and the boy was so excited to know that the dog is suffering from the same condition.


Not only to Carter, Rowdy is a joy to other kids too! 


The owner of Rowdy said that the dog is getting really old and that is a concern. However, the owner hopes that Rowdy's pups will continue to bring joy to kids all over the world after Rowdy. 



As the saying goes, "the best therapist has fur and four legs."
