This Woman’s Snapchats Of Last Day With Dying Dog Will Make You Cry

“Dogs are too amazing to let go, but sometimes it happens, and they will forgive you.” That’s the message of this heartbreakingly sad story recently uploaded to Imgur by a woman who bid a final farewell to her dying family pet in an emotional series of Snapchat photos.

Her dog Hannah had been having seizures that had been getting progressively worse over the last couple of months of her life. The seizures were exacerbated by the medication prescribed in a vet clinic for her kidneys, elbows, and hips, but without the medication, Hannah could barely walk, and several times she’d fallen down the stairs. Because of this her owner decided that saying goodbye is the most humane thing to do and dog euthanasia was in line, but only after treating her to one last day full of love. If you don’t already have a box of tissues nearby, then we suggest that you go and get one, because the loss of a dog is very emotional…

I'm sorry but I don't understand... Why do you put down dogs even when even when they are still active. We treat our dogs like family so why not do everything to keep them alive? Like when your grandparents are old, sick and frail but they are still alive and having a good life with family, you don't put them down right? You do everything to keep them alive and happy. Have you considered that the dog wants to stay alive and be with you longer. I'm sorry but I undestand that we have different sets of values but that's just me and I respect your decision because that's your dog. My condolences.

A loving owner is best placed to know when their pet is in constant pain and no longer getting any pleasure out of life. Deciding when the time has come to end their suffering is one of the main responsibilities of owning a pet. You shouldn't keep a sick and miserable animal alive just because it makes you feel better about yourself. Unless you know the pet in question and what its quality of life is like, it isn't your place to judge another family's painful decision.

I loathe these sorts of stories and I wish Bored Panda and other websites would stop publishing them. These are the lowest form of schamltz known to mankind. Losing a pet is a traumatic event for many of us and finding stories like this showing up on our newsfeeds is like rubbing salt in the wound. And who in their right mind would spend their last day with their dog taking snapchats? Some people just can't resist sinking to the lowest possible denominator in their desire to gain attention for themselves.

same here... and think about the people who received those snapchats all day long. I think 1 or 2 pictures would've been enough to make sure everyone know she's sad

I have done the last ride with my dog to the vets. I don't want to remember that... I want to remember the days when she was happy and healthy. I have those pictures. I feel sorry for this family. I feel sorry for all the people who lose pets :( It's totally heartbreaking.

When it was time to let our old girl go a few years ago we asked the vet to come over. She had lost use of both her limbs on one side. She was tired and in pain. We scheduled the vet visit for Monday and doted on her that weekend, gave her all kinds of fast food that we'd normally not let her eat. Saying goodbye was hard, but I'm glad she didn't have to ride the car to the vet on her last day. She hated the car and the vet - it would have given her so much stress. :(
