There's nothing quite like a good dog to make each day richer and fuller for the people who love them. But sadly, their time in our lives is so much briefer in comparison to the huge place they occupy in our hearts.
This week, Reddit user weezabeeb shared a set of photos of her family that captures that bittersweet truth better than most, writing:
"We had to put my dog of 16 years down yesterday, but before we did we recreated our favourite photo with him."
The touching tribute has clearly resonated with folks online, where it's been viewed more than 1.3 million times - and for good reason. Though years may come and go, the love of a cherished pet never fades, even long after we bid them a final farewell.
