A “Strong” Man Breaks Down After Having To Let Go Of His 14-Year-Old Dog

Not everyone realizes how important a pet can be in one’s heart and in one’s life. They become a part of our family, and when something horrible occurs to them, we find no solace, just like we do with our loved ones.

He tries to caress him, looks him in the eyes, and kisses him at one point, as if he wants to hold him back, but he realizes that time is running short.

“The strong guy will have to say goodbye to the dog with whom he has shared his life for the past 14 years.” “I pray there’s no more agony in paradise,” it says next to the video’s description, which has received over 17 million views.

In the face of the man’s anguish, which they perceive as their own, the networks have not been reluctant to reply with heartfelt responses of empathy.
