Dog's Last Day With Family Recorded With These Photos

By

Let me preface this story by saying you'll definitely need to break out an insanely massive box of tissues for this one.

Meet sweet Daisy the beagle.

At 13 years old, Daisy lost her ability to walk, and due to her age, she couldn't undergo surgery.

According to MailOnline, Daisy's family decided the best decision for her would be to make sure she wasn't suffering any longer.

One of the family members, Victor Flores, took to Twitter to share Daisy's special adventures on her last day spent on this Earth.

The day was planned out to be all about sweet Daisy.

Victor captioned the series of pictures,

my dog is being put to sleep tomorrow so my mom made her last day memorable

Daisy went for a stroll around the neighborhood in her wagon…

…And when it came time for lunch, a pan of bacon was prepared for miss Daisy.

Dinner was a delicious feast of steak and chicken.

Victor even included a snap of Daisy eating her meal.

When speaking with MailOnline, Victor said,

Besides the good food and the walks around the neighborhood, we also made sure she was as comfortable as possible and most of our family stopped by to say goodbye.

Victor's tweet about Daisy gained over 99,000 retweets and more than 273,000 likes.

When speaking about Twitter's response to his tweet, he said,

I wasn't expecting the tweet to go viral, but when it did the support was tremendous. People across the world were sending their condolences. I think our story made everybody go over and hug their dog.

Victor continued,

Daisy was our first dog. I remember getting her for Christmas when I was nine years old. She's been in our family since. Everybody loved her.

It's said when a pet passes away, he/she can be found going to what's known as the "Rainbow Bridge."

Although the author is unknown, this poem about the "Rainbow Bridge" is really touching and brought me a little bit of solace when I lost my very first family dog.

According to the poem,

There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

The poem continues to say,

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

At the end of the poem, the important point made is that your pet may be physically absent now from your daily routine, but he/she will never, ever leave your heart.
