A Navy veteran, living alone in Oriental on a houseboat needed the help of his pet during an emergency that took place recently. On Friday, both were finally reunited.
Rudy Armstrong reveals that he is used to keeping things with himself, and most of the time, he is with Boo-boo (his pet dog), so when an issue came up, he had to turn to her.
The day started normally for the 86-year-old, only for things to change suddenly into an emergency.
I sat down in my chair, drank my coffee, and the next thing I know it was after lunch, and I couldn’t even get my hand to move and my foot wouldn’t move.Rudy Armstrong
The Navy veteran revealed that he had a stroke and he couldn’t get to his phone, so he had to reach out to his best-friend and Chihuahua Boo-Boo.
I didn’t want to be there for a couple of days before somebody would come by, so I said, Ok Boo-Boo, go get me some help.Rudy Armstrong
Boo-Boo brought in the Dockmaster, allowing his master to get the required help by the paramedics at CarolinaEast. Five days after Armstrong revealed how his dog saved his life, he and his pet dog were finally reunited on Friday.

He revealed how proud he is of his pet, and that he won’t have been able to survive it without her.
