It's a story of a boy and his dog, but it doesn't follow the traditional tale of what you might think. Normally when WKYT brings you a Commonwealth of Kindness report, it’s about humans helping animals, but this story is quite the opposite. Recently a Jessamine County family encountered a dog on vacation that changed their lives.
When a child is rushed to the hospital or has an extended stay due to illness it can turn a family’s world upside down. One Madison County nonprofit works to bring hope and encouragement to those families through a small act of kindness meant to make their hospital stay a little easier. A stay in the hospital can be frightening for a child, for his or her parents left waiting with them it can be equally as terrifying and stressful.
Most all of us routinely roll our garbage out to the curb for weekly pickup, but do you know the drivers who service your street? One Bourbon County family is thankful for the two men on their route and a recent random act of kindness they will forever be thankful for.
