When his adult son died of cancer a few years ago, Ara was heartbroken, empty, and lost. And then he adopted a dog named Spirit. Spirit had had a rough go of it himself, and had his own emptiness and emotional damage to overcome. Ara and Spirit have been inseparable since. They’ve traversed 140,000 miles by motorcycle together. As they zip along, Spirit sniffs the terrain in his sidecar, looking ever so happy to be with his man for this grand and healing adventure.
“Spirit is my therapy…His unconditional love is always there, lifting my heart,” says Ara.
There is a movie in this. For now, here’s a pretty awesome little music video.
