After Her Dog Died, Girl Tweets: 'Doggie Heaven Does Exist'

If you're wondering what I've been up to for the past twenty minutes, I'd tell you just the usual...

I was crying and holding my dog because OMG I love her so much, I don't know what I'd do without her.

Please never leave me, my beautiful cinnamon roll (too good for this world, too pure).

What's that? You want further proof that human beings don't deserve dogs?

You want more evidence than the knowledge that your dog dreams about you and the way you smell? (Sometimes, I'll wake up my dog Zelda to inform her, "Hey, I love you.")

OK, I see what you're saying. I also always want more proof that dogs are better than humans in every way.

Catie Callaghan said her family dog Bandit was a very good dog.

*Eyes already well up with tears.*

The Callaghan's household was Bandit's fourth home. Catie told BuzzFeed News,

We never gave up on him.

Bandit loved everyone, but he was especially close to Callaghan's father.

This is me right now:

Bandit had to have a number of surgeries through his life, but after his last procedure, Bandit passed away.

He was 15 years old.

The family was naturally heartbroken. But then Callaghan's mother saw a "sign from doggie heaven."

Twitter

Callaghan tweeted the above photo and wrote,

So my 15 year old dog passed away two days ago.. My mom found his bowl like this tonight. Doggie heaven does exist. Love you Bandit.

She told Buzzfeed,

The bowl was a sign that he's happy. We even thought the smile looked like his. It was a God wink.

*Sobs uncontrollably.*

OBVIOUSLY TWITTER FEELS THE SAME WAY I DO ABOUT THIS.

WE'LL BE FINE. LET US JUST REHYDRATE.

IT DOESN'T MATTER WHERE YOU ARE WHEN THERE'S A SAD DOGGY STORY.

Callaghan said she's happy her tweet has gone so far,

My family is extremely happy about how everyone has seen the tweet. It warms our hearts and makes us feel good about it. My mom now wants a Twitter account.

I did not know you, Bandit, but I loved you.
