Rudy Armstrong, a former Navy veteran, was enjoying some downtime on his houseboat in North Carolina with his loyal furry companion named Bubu when he started experiencing unusual health issues. He felt the need to sit down as his foot had gone numb, and soon after, he realized that one of his arms had also stopped working. With no immediate means of seeking help, Rudy became anxious about his condition. However, his faithful Chihuahua-mix pet, Bubu, sensed that something was amiss and went over to check on him.
Bubu hastily left the houseboat, showing his understanding of his father’s words. Upon reaching the harbor, he sought out Kim, who was in charge of the docks, and knew exactly what to do. According to a report from The Dodo, Brandy Popp, the head of public relations at CarolinaEast Health System, stated that Bubu approached her and lay on his side instead of his usual behavior of barking, jumping, and licking.
Kim accompanied Bubu on their way back to the boat after comprehending his message. It came to her notice that Rudy had called 911 after experiencing a stroke. The moment the paramedics arrived, Kim attended to Bubu while Rudy was immediately transported to the hospital for advanced medical attention.
Thanks to Bubu’s bravery, his father received prompt treatment and was able to make a full recovery after spending a few weeks at Carolina East Health System. Rudy couldn’t help but feel a sense of longing for his faithful companion during his stay.
