He Created a Time-Lapse Video of His Dog Growing up but the Reason Why Will Break Your Heart

Unfortunately, some animals don’t get a lucky start on life and this was the case for a Great Dane named Pegasus. She was part of a litter of puppies bred from an inexperienced backyard breeder and nearly all of them died.

When South African director and filmmaker Dave Meinert rescued her as a 4-week-old puppy, he didn’t know how long she would live because of the numerous health complications she already had. He wanted to preserve every special day and decided to document her growth with a time-lapse video over a period of 5 months.

Over the course of 5 months, he recorded every special moment.

 

Through the incredible time-lapse video, we see Pegasus grow before her eyes.

 

Because his work involves travel, Meinert had to leave her with another family who now lovingly cares for her. She also has made a new best friend, a Great Dame named Luna and Meinert still visits with her every chance he gets.

Meinert’s video reminds us about unethical breeding and the importance of animal adoption. Without Meinert’s love and affection, Pegasus might not have grown up to be the wonderful dog she is today.
