Dog helps man with Alzheimer's regain speech

Alzheimer's Disease can be devastating to a family, leaving patient's without the ability to do even the most simple task, let alone speak. This is the case with Lisa Abeyta's father. In a video uploaded to Youtube, Abeyta says her father has lost nearly all of his speech to the disease. Despite the disease, every time her father sees the family dog he regains his speech. In the touching video, Abeyta's father can be seen talking to and playing with the dog.
