The power of dogs is incredible!

A 73-year-old man named James Wathen was confounding his doctors over at Baptist Health Corbin in Corbin, Kentucky when his health began deteriorating and he refused to eat for seemingly reasons beyond them.

But nurses realized James was upset about not being with his a one-eyed Chihuahua named Bubba. The two had been separated since James first was taken to the hospital.

Well, nurses were able to figure out that the dog had been taken to a foster family through the Knox-Whitley animal shelter, and on October 11th — a reunion of epic proportions took place!

Here's what Deanna Myers, the Director of the Knox Whitley Animal Shelter, said online:

"When bubba was handed to James he started to cry and then Bubba started to snuggle James and it makes you realize that animals are not just pets they are loved ones."

Since then James has been like a whole new man as he's now eating and sitting up with regularity! Something he was NOT doing before!

And the dog, who was described as depressed too, is ALSO doing better!

Here's what one person said about his condition:

"He's done a complete turnaround. He's speaking, he's sitting up, he's eating. He doesn't look like the same guy. And the dog is eating and doing better now, too."

Such an amazing story!
