A veteran says goodbye to his dog

The day of the visit came and the entire staff was ready to say goodbye. Patch was ready so they drove him to the hospice where his master Vincent was; during the trip the dog was very calm and enjoyed the trip, but when they arrived something changed; it was like the dog noticed something.

The dog had never been there before, but for some reason Patch raised his paws to the window and began to whine. It was as if he knew where he was being taken. The dog was very worried about the situation. The therapists knew it. They sensed that the dog was excited, because deep down he knew he had to visit his master.
