"I'll take you. And you take me.”

Alzheimer’s is an ugly disease that can rob loved ones of their voice and the ability to perform even the simplest functions. But there’s still a chance for a final shining moment before that day comes.

Lisa Abeyta’s father is in the final stages of Alzheimer’s, and he’s almost completely lost his ability to speak. When it comes to the family dog, things sometimes work a little differently. 

Cue the piano music.

Dogs can do wonders in comforting those who are sick, and for Abeyta’s dad, there’s a moment of happiness.

“Why don’t I take care,” he said. “I’ll take you. And you take me.”

Abeyta shared the video in hope that other people will listen to their parents and not take them for granted because they “never know when will be the last time.”

Good lord, what is it with the tearjerkers today?
