- A woman documented the last day of her dog through Snapchats
- The heartbreaking Snapchats and the short story about the dog were posted on Imgur
- The dog Hannah became terribly ill so the owner gave one last hoo-rah day of pampering then let her go
“Dogs are too amazing to let go, but sometimes it happens and they will forgive you.”
These were the words written on the post of a woman who bid a final farewell to her dying dog in an emotional series of Snapchats.
In an article written by James Gould-Bourn of Bored Panda, it was disclosed that the dog named Hannah had seizures for two months and gradually got worse so her owner decided to pamper her for one last time.
“For about two months Hannah has been having seizures, they were small and nothing to worry about, but they gradually got worse. Hannah was on a couple of meds, one for her kidneys and another for the pain she had in her elbows and her hips,” wrote the dog’s owner.
“When she wasn’t on her meds, she didn’t have really bad seizures, she had them, but they weren’t horrible, but when she wasn’t on her meds, she couldn’t walk well or make it up the stairs, several times she fell down them or up them. I finally decided that keeping her on the meds was selfish, but keeping her off of them was just as cruel. So I decided to give her one last hoo-rah day of pampering, like the queen she’s always been, and let her go. Where there would be no pain, no seizures, no whimpering in the night. Just peace and hopefully love,” she added, saying “R.I.P. (Rest in peace) Hannah.”

Blog for a dog’s last day
Meanwhile, the hearts of people online were touched before by a similar story; an owner created a blog narrating an ill Houston Labrador retriever’s last day on earth.
The post “I Died Today by Duke Roberts” with photos of Duke who was then dying from cancer, though bittersweet, melted the hearts of thousands of people online as the blog reflects the dog’s point of view.
Duke was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in his leg. Although he had his front leg removed, the tumor still grew and started to separate his ribs.
Duke’s last day, as detailed by photographer Robyn Arouty, included eating hamburgers and having a party.
