The bond between a dog and a human can be incredibly strong and unbreakable, but the same can be said for bonds that dogs form with one another. They can be just as powerful and touching, just like in this story.
The 17-year-old teen Caitlin Wyanne recently had a dog that passed away, George. Her other four-footer Harry misses him dearly and he doesn’t really know what to do now that his best friend has passed.
Caitlin posted a picture of Harry who was sleeping directly next to Harry’s bed, where he used to sleep before he passed away.
These two friends have been through so many amazing moments, and they always managed to get curled up together in the corner of this room. George would stay on his bed as it was his safe and cozy spot, while Harry would always sit to the side right next to him – even though he had a comfy bed of his own, he preferred to be directly near George.
The two, both Lhasa Apsos dogs, were best friends and completely inseparable. A picture of just Harry sitting next to the empty bed is just heartbreaking and emotional.
George left the family over a year ago, but Harry still decides to sit next to the bed where he used to sleep with his best friend.
The poor pup had to be put to sleep because of medical reasons. Vets diagnosed him with kidney failure, and putting him to sleep was the best and least painful option. Up until this day, Harry still sleeps in the very same spot, he likes to keep George in his heart forever. He also knows that it was never his own bed, so he decides to leave it alone out of respect and in honor of his buddy.
“I’m full on crying rn…he always let george sleep there and he died almost a year ago and he still lies there,” the teen posted on her Twitter-account.
“Almost a year on and he clearly still misses George! He sleeps on the floor to the side of the bed now quite often but I didn’t realise why until I was looking through photos of them both from a year ago and saw the photo I tweeted which made me realise,” she later added.
It’s clear that this pup misses George madly, and it must be incredibly tough for a four-footer to lose a best friend. When George passed, Harry was there in his final moments.
“We took Harry to the vets with us when George was put to sleep and stayed next to him the whole time,” Caitlin said.
The image is incredibly emotional, especially when you put two images side to side. Caitlin’s tweet was seen by thousands, and she was flooded with comments containing warm words.
“Awwww this is so sad, dogs definitely have emotions, hope your cute doggy is ok, 💔❤️ xx” Sandy commented.
Another person decided to share a similar story on Twitter.
“This is so sweet! I lost one of my labradors 4 month back and my two others still leave room for her where she used to lay on the sofa and on their beds. Dogs are so precious.”
Even though Harry won’t be able to see his best friend again, he will always carry him closeby in his heart.
