For the past year, one Nashville, Tennessee boy named Lennox has prayed every single night for his four-legged best friend Bogart to return home.
“A year ago our neighbor had to take her dog to live in another state while she traveled and my son stood in her yard and cried as they drove away. We didn’t think the dog would be gone for so long but my son has prayed for his beloved canine friend every single night since he left,” said mom Ellen Tift Goebel.
And as the months passed, Goebel could tell how much her son missed Bogart and how sad he was. “I have known the emotional drama that he had felt while Bogart was away,” she said. “It was so sad when Bogart’s owner told us she was going on tour, so she had to fly him to California to stay with her mom. She had said he would be gone until last July, and he left last April, so we thought he’d only be gone a couple months and my son was already crying. The day they were going to fly we went over there super early so he could play with the dog before they got on the plane.”
So when Goebel found out that her neighbor and Bogart were home, she brought him over to their house and surprised her son with the amazing news “I had no idea. I just immediately thought, ‘I need to pet him,’” Lennox said about the emotional moment. “It felt like Spring break all over again.”
