All dogs go to heaven. But, as their humans and best friends, it's a reality we never want to face.
Our pets -- dogs, in particular, because dogs are the best -- become members of the family. They're our little children, our brothers and sisters, our nieces and nephews.
We love and cherish our pets more than we cherish most people. That's why, when their short lives are coming to an end, we want to make their last days more special than the rest and show them just how loved they are.
One Reddit user by the name of ewhippieyoustink2 posted a heart-wrenching photo of his pup in his last days, which he captions, "An old dog's last ride."
The dog's age shows in his wrinkled skin, sparse coat and grey hair. With a wide smile and closed eyes, he's taking in the fresh air one last time.
If you're one of those people who cries more when the animals die in movies than when the people die, this image is NSFW.
I mean, really, cue the waterworks.
Take some extra time today to give some love and attention to the furry friends in your life. And if its furry friends you can only remember, hop in the car, roll down the windows and let the wind blow through your hair in their honor.
