Pet's really are therapy and this photo shared by Kerri-Anne Kennerley certainly proves it.
The 62-year-old Australian TV star has been by her husband John's bedside ever since he had a bad fall and broke his C2 and C3 vertebrate in March.
Kerri-Anne has become her husband's rock during his recovery, doing all she can to help him heal, including taking his beloved dog Digger to the hospital to visit him.
Sharing the beautiful photo from her husband's hospital bed at the Royal North Shore hospital in Sydney, Kerri-Anne said the touching moment made them all so happy.
"Today was the first time Digger recognised John and made us all happy. So true, pets really are therapy," she wrote.
Kerri-Anne's fans were quick to comment on the heart-warming photo.
John has so far been diagnosed with incomplete quadriplegia and remains in hospital where is recovering.
