Bella Burton suffers from Morquio Syndrome and thought she would spend her entire life confined to crutches or a wheelchair. After a year of volunteering at the Service Dog Project, Inc., Bella met George, and the pair made an instant connection, her mother Rachel Burton said.

"The first time I walked with George, it was amazing," Bella said in an interview with Barkpost. "It was like I haven't walked in so long, and now I get to do it again."

Their special relationship deserved some special treatment, according to Barkpost, which organized a day out for the duo.

"We wanted to give him the ultimate day off where he could just enjoy doing his favorite things for the person he loves most in the world," BarkPost producer Laura Hartle told InsideEdition.com.

After a cordial welcome by at the Fairmont Hotel in Boston, Bell and George began their day at the famous burger chain owned by actor Mark Wahlberg and his siblings, Wahlburgers.

A video captured George picking past the buns and getting straight to the good stuff when waitresses brought him a huge tray of their famous burgers.

The pair then hit the slopes at the Blue Hills Ski Area to play in the snow, George's favorite activity.

And as a real "treat," George and Bella made a visit to Polka Dog, where George feasted at the dog treat bakery.

After a long day hitting the town, George and Bella retired to their suite at the Fairmont Hotel, and the two concluded the pooch's best day ever with the best sleepover ever.

"George works so hard for Bella," Hartle told InsideEdition.com, saying George helped Bella gain the strength to walk on her own. Now the resilient girl can even ride a bike. 

"George deserves the world's best day because he had changed the life of my daughter," Rachel added.
