After their owner died in a hiking accident, two dogs console one other. Tonka and Little P were hiking with Kris Busching and his friend Mark in Colorado, USA, when the party became disoriented.
According to Mr Bones & Co., the New York NGO that is presently caring for Kris’s dogs, Kris tried to lower her pups down a canyon to obtain some water after two days, but they fell in. Kris.
Kris lost her footing and attempted to save her dogs, but they all fell to their deaths at the canyon’s bottom.
The guy died instantly, but Tonka and Little P were hurt.
Their pets patiently awaited Kris’s death. They didn’t move away from him until relief arrived a day later, and everyone was saved, including Kris’s buddy Mark.
Mark delivered the pups to Kris’s bereaved family on Long Island, where Mr. Bones & Co stepped in to assist and transport the dogs to the vet so the family could grieve.
Once there, the “suddenly lost their whole world” small dog brothers provided each other solace as they suffered with the anguish of their injuries as well as the grief of loss.
When Tonka was brought to the animal hospital, the group published a video of the dogs softly brushing their noses, demonstrating a particular affinity.
Mr. Bones and Associates wrote:
When elder brother Tonka was taken to our @amcny emergency animal hospital to save his leg, these two emanated a degree of devotion and affection that needed no further explanation. His love for Little P is unbreakable.”
Tonka required emergency surgery for a shattered leg, while Little P required X-rays for a broken jaw.
Little P will not require surgery and will be placed in foster care while Tonka recovers from her surgery “without the temptation to play for a few weeks,” according to Mr. Bones & Co.
Tonka’s right wrist was injured in addition to her fractured leg, so the doctors put her in a splint in the hopes that it would recover without the need for surgery.
Mr. Bones & Co. created a GoFundMe effort to seek money for the dogs’ medical care since Kris’s family is burdened with funeral expenditures and unable to handle the costs of caring for these canines.
