A dog owner was so thankful to his local vet school for saving his boys life he decided to thank him by spending $6,000,000 on a tv ad to air during the Superbowl.
The man's dog, named Scout, was just seven years old when he was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer. He took Scout to the vet and was ultimately told that Scout only had about one month of life left in him.
But David, the owner, wasn't willing to accept that diagnosis.
"There he was in this little room, standing in the corner... and he's wagging his tail at me. I'm like 'I'm not putting that dog down. There's just absolutely no way,'" he said to his local news site.
David took Scout to the local vet school to see if there was anything they could do to help.
Scout underwent chemotherapy and radiation (with only a 1% chance of survivial!). After two months, the tumour had shrunk to 90% of its original size and today Scput is pretty much cancer free!
The ad that David put together for the Superbowl chronicles Scout's journey from diagnosis to recovery, as it features the adorable pooch running on the beach before walking down the halls of the veterinary school. At the end of the ad, viewers are encouraged to donate, with all the proceeds going to the school's medical research.
