ER Physician Dr. Travis Stork rescued his beloved dog Nala from the shelter 17 years ago, and she’s been a very special lady in his life ever since. “She’s one my best buddies in my life – maybe the very best,” he tells us. This beautiful pup has been a frequent guest on The Doctors .
The Doctors watch a montage of Nala in photos and videos from throughout her long and happy life with Dr. Stork, from romping in the snow to helping The Doctors demonstrate how to brush a dog’s teeth.
Dr. Stork smiles through tears – Nala is older now and having health issues, and Dr. Stork knows it will soon be time to say goodbye to her. “Preparing for the end, and yet not having their funeral until it comes – it’s a bit of an emotional roller-coaster,” he says.
Sadly, Nala passed away shortly after this episode was taped.
“She is who I wish everyone could be,” he adds. “I just think about all the people’s lives she’s touched … .She’s just so sweet, it melts my freaking heart!”
“I recommend that you always keep that alive,” says Psychotherapist Dr. Mike Dow. He urges us all to keep pictures and mementos of our loved ones, whether human or animal. “That love will always be there.”
Plastic Surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon lost his own dog, Lulu, a year ago, and knows how hard it is. “She really was like a family member.”
“To little Nala out there, I love you, girl!” concludes Dr. Stork.
Rest in peace, sweet girl.
