Anyone who is a pet owner or has ever owned a pet can attest to this...they are family!!! Some are constant companions, a source of comfort when we are feeling down, their love is unconditional and they steal our hearts.
The story we are sharing comes from across the pond in Glasgow, Scotland where Mrs. Dunne teaches school, primarily 8 to 9-year old children. She loves to share stories about her Charlie, the family dog, with her students who have come to adore the pet that they haven't ever met.
The 18 month old Golden Retriever, despite the young age, was found with a malignant growth on his chest. Heartbreaking news becoming as dire situation for their beloved pet and the family knew that had to let him go. *tears tears tears* I know how hard that is to do!!! Going back to class after the devastating loss, Dunne knew she wasn't going to be the same and decided to share the sad news with her students and they too were saddened.
One of the children, Callum, decided to write a letter for his teacher in hopes providing some comfort in the only way a 9 year old can and it is a letter that has all of the internet's hearts melting..
Mum’s been so upset about the dog being put to sleep and stressing about having to go back into school today, and she got this from a wee boy in her class 😭😭😭 pic.twitter.com/2qslb572CX— lucie (@luciedunne_) February 19, 2018
The pain of losing a pet is never easy and saying goodbye is one of the hardest things to do but a kind word from someone, even a child, can touch our heart and bring a little comfort as we heal from our loss.
If you love this story, pass it along to someone to make their day a little brighter. Tammy Daye
