After eight years of hard battles with a terrible disease, a 25 years old man from Alloa, Scotland, passed away. His beloved dog, who “was always with him,” over those extremely difficult years, could not stand loosing his owner and minutes after he also died, the Mirror reports.
In 2011 Stuart Hutchison was diagnosed with brain tumour and ever since, his doggy, Nero, a French Bulldog was always there for him. But now, losing his fur dad, was too much for the loyal dog, who gave up life 15 minutes after Stuart passed away. According to local media, Stuart was married with Danielle, 22 and they also owned two other dogs, Nala and Amelia (puppy of Nala and Nero.)
“Stuart died about 1.15pm that day, and Nero died roughly 15 minutes later. He had three dogs, but him and Nero were like one man and his dog. Nero was the dog which was always with him. Danielle was heartbroken to have lost both of them, but she has been so strong,” the youngster’s mom, Fiona Conaghan said. “We got Stuart home four weeks ago – he wanted to die at home because that’s where he was born. We cared for him at home. We expected it but it is still tough. It is still a shock when it finally comes.”
Stuart and Danielle met each other six years ago and got engaged in 2017. They in Alloa, Clackmannanshire, Scotland, but in the last months they moved in with Stuart’s parents, so his mom to take care of him as Danielle works as a pharmacy assistant.
“Danielle had been staying at ours with Stuart and woke up one morning and realised her glasses were broken. Her dad said he would go and get another pair from her and Stuart’s house to save her leaving him as we knew he didn’t have long left,” Fiona said. “When he got there, he realised the dog had taken unwell and took him to the emergency vets. They said he had ruptured something in his spine but he had been totally fine before that.”
“Stuart was a strong, lovable character, everyone loved him,”the grieving mom added.
