Dogs are innately sweet animals. Even if we do not tell them what we feel, dogs have a strong intuition about how we think. This is the reason why most dogs would often go near their humans whenever the latter feels lonely. But dogs are also their during the happy moments of their humans.
This dog, however, is different from the rest. While Lego is just like many dogs who know how to comfort their humans, he does it differently. Lego’s human, Tupper, got diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder when the child was two-years-old. Tupper’s condition prevents him from having a good night’s sleep. More often than not, the young boy always wakes up due to a bad dream.
This is where Lego’s duty comes into action. The dog would often comfort Tupper when the latter experiences bad dreams. When the young boy begins shouting while asleep, Lego already knows that Tupper is having nightmares.
Lego makes sure that he is beside Tupper whenever the boy goes to bed because he plays a vital role in the boy’s life. He understands his part, and Lego does it well. According to Tupper’s mom, Nancy, the dog would often hug and cuddle with Tupper whenever the boy has nightmares.
Each time the dog does this act, the young boy would stop screaming. It became apparent to Nancy that Tupper’s kryptonite is Lego. Nancy is thankful for all the dog has done to her son. If not for Lego’s constant assurance to her son, Nancy does not know what to do.
But more than the calm he provides to Tupper, Lego always gives the young boy companionship. Nancy understands that due to the boy’s condition, it would be difficult for Tupper to live a normal life. But because of Lego’s presence, the boy has been given a chance to live normally.
