80-Year-Old Man Dies After Losing His Beloved Dog For 16 Years

Ken Penda, an 80-year-old man who live in a mobile home community in Hemet, California, used to spend time with his fourteen-year-old dog by taking him for walks every day, and experiencing an unconditional care and love.

One day, the dog became very ill, so, many neighbors came around to help the dog, Zack! Unfortunately, Ken did not have enough money to take Zack to a veterinary clinic, so, Carol Burt, a kind neighbor, helped him by sharing a post online hoping that Ken would find help.

Thankfully, founder of a rescue organization that helps dogs in need called the At-Choo Foundation, Elaine Seamans, answered the plea, and took the dog to a veterinary clinic, where they found that Zack was unfortunately on the verge of death as he had a 6/6 heart murmur, severe arthritis, and glaucoma!

Sadly, the dog died leaving his elder owner in grief! Ken tried to pass this pandemic, but unfortunately, it was too tough for him as he passed away because of a heart attack not long after Zack’s death! How heartbroken!
