Dog lovers all over the internet have their heart broken by a picture of 11 year old Sef saying his final goodbyes to his family.
Rawtashk, a Reddit user, posted the picture of three Belgian Malinois dogs kissing each other just before the older dog was taken away to be put to sleep.
Rawtashk wrote “Our old boy is getting put down today. Somehow our other 2 seem to know, and they’ve been saying goodbye all morning.”
To be able for the old dog to be with his family on his final journey across the eternal rainbow the family had arranged for the veterinarian to come to their house. He explains in his Reddit post: ““You know you have a good boy when your vet doesn’t normally do at-home euthanasia, but she volunteers to come out and do it for Sef”
The morning the veterinarian was expected at the home somehow the Sef’s family, Rhonin and Jaina, knew something was happening. All morning while waiting for the doc they came over and gave tender kisses to Sef.
Sef was allowed to leave this life among friends and family in peace while every member of the family assured him of their love.
Rawtashk ends his post with a tender statement: “I love you, Sef. You were the best boy I could have ever asked for. I would have carried you forever, had I been able to, but it wasn’t fair for you.”
The internet exploded in an outpouring of support and the family was careful to follow up on their original post letting followers know that the dog was cremated, and his ashes were placed on the mantle next to the remains of their first dog.
However, sadly, the two remaining dogs are mourning their missing family member and still sometimes believe that Sef will just turn up at the door and walk in with his head high. At other times the two dogs visit the place where Sef used to sleep trying to catch a sniff of their lost brother.
