The love and happy memories you collect and share with your favorite canine over the years shape us as human beings. Taking care of a small puppy who hasn’t been potty trained, going on walks and family vacations, or running around the living room of your childhood home- are all cherished memories, here to remind us the great life our dog has lived, being loved and content, outweighing the pain of the loss.
Growing up with a family dog as best friend is of course no exception, as reddit user weezabeeb posted a simple recreation of a family picture, including all four, now grown, sisters and their beloved family dog in the middle, now sporting white hairs. The family photo first shot 16 years prior to the recreation shows all four siblings giggling, with the pup being held up.
This was shot just a day before he had to be put down, showing the love and care he has received from the family through the years.
Most importantly, Those photos goes to show real love never ages, even when we do.
