When you have a dog in your life, in many ways you are definitely like a parent; you are responsible to educate (train) them, you are responsible for their health, you have to make sure that they eat properly, that they get enough fresh air, playtime and a safe roof to keep them warm.
But sometimes you also have to make really tough decisions, like to let them go. It’s a nightmare, really. When you see their health is deteriorating and that they are in constant pain, when it’s only going to get worse and there’s nothing else you can do to make it better for them.

And then you have a last day with them. What would you do? You’d probably make sure your dog has a great last day, doing favorite things and spending every second together.
This woman had to make that tough choice and she decided to let Hannah –her dear dog– go. But before that, she made sure she treated her with a last day full of her favorite things.
Then she shared it as a series of Snapchats on Imgur entitled “Dogs are too amazing to let go, but sometimes it happens and they will forgive you“.
Through the series you see her taking Hannah for a final car ride, treating her with an aromatherapy bath to relax her, giving her a last McDonald’s burger, enjoying some playtime with a dog friend, the farewells of the family members, the last car ride to the vet on her human’s lap and the final hug.
Whether you have experienced letting them go or not, you can understand the pain and relate to the heartbreaking moment of a tough decision we sometimes have to make.
Her final picture with Hannah was just so touching that it hurts us to post it. It has since gone viral and is the epitome of heartbreak. If you want to see it, please click here.
