Great Dane Adopts Widowed Grandma On Walking Trail

A Great Dane and a widowed grandmother, who recently lost her husband, have formed a sweet friendship that has given her a sense of purpose after her loss. 

The good Lord knew what he was doing when he created and placed dogs on earth with humans. They are some of the most dependable, loyal and loving creatures on the planet. Canines are also resilient and persistent, refusing to let anything get them down. They are always willing to trust and love. 

Kernel, a Great Dane, would often go on long walks in the woods with his owner. It was on these walks when Kernel befriended and fell in love with an older couple. However, one day, the man passed away, but Kernel was there to provide the elderly widow with a sense of routine and purpose, according to a video posted on YouTube.

But Kernel forging a friendship and taking a liking to the older woman also reminded Kernel’s owner, Alyssa, of her own grandmother. Alyssa explains that she lost her mother when she was in high school and became very close to her grandmother and, as a result, so did Kernel.

“I was super close with my grandparents, and watching Kernel and my nana fall in love with each other kind of just made everything right in the world for a minute,” Alyssa said.

She later added that “losing my nana was a lot.”

Now, the elderly widow joins Alyssa, Kernel and Alyssa’s other dogs for a hike in the woods at least once a week. 

The elderly woman, Alyssa and Kernel have grown so close that she even invited them over for dinner on Mother’s Day. The video shows the Great Dane walking through the woman’s apartment, taking in the sights, sounds, smells and even drinking from the bathroom sink.

It’s amazing how much one large dog taking to an elderly couple in the woods has positively impacted the lives of everyone involved. 

Genesis 1:21 “And God created great whales, and every living creature that moves, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.”
