It's no secret that Manny the Frenchie is an internet sensation. His Instagram is inching closer and closer to hitting one million followers, a mark hit quite some time ago on his massively popular Facebook page. Not to mention, he's quite the avid Puppy Bowl fan. However, it's not just about the glitz and glam of stardom for the precious pooch.
Recently, Manny traveled to Louisiana to bring a smile and a sloppy wet kiss to the face of a true survivor. Joycean, one of Manny's biggest fans, suffers from Cystic Fibrosis and had no idea her favorite pup was coming to visit. Check out the incredible surprise below:
Bites @ Animal Planet had the opportunity to chat with Manny about his travels and what it meant to bring some joy to Joycelun.
Bites: What made the email about Joceylun stick out in your inbox? Was there ever any hesitation in making this surprise happen for her?
Manny: We receive a couple hundred emails like this every month and although I wish I could help every single human and animal that emails me, unfortunately I can't. This particular email stood out because it was regarding a disease that affects only humans and not animals. Katie showed us how much Joycelun loved looking at my pics and how much I help cheer her up when she is in pain. After learning more about Cystic Fibrosis and what Joycelun has endured her whole life, there was no hesitation to visit her. My mommy and daddy decided that instead of a regular visit, we wanted to surprise her and capture her reaction.
