Heartbroken Pup Cuddles With Pillow That Has The Face Of His Deceased Best Friend


Spencer and Rocky were two peas in a pod for almost 10 years. The two pups spent every moment by each other’s side and formed a beautiful friendship that touched so many hearts.

Beth Fisher always loved the fact that her two fur babies were such dear friends. Their time together was always full of love, which made what came next so heartbreaking.

“Rocky and Spencer slept in the same bed, ate from the same bowl, and always went out together when they went out. They have never been apart for a night. “- Beth Fisher

Rocky’s health began to deteriorate shortly before his 10th birthday. Beth knew it was time to visit her vet where they received devastating news that changed their lives forever.

Rocky had a large internal tumor that was diagnosed with cancer. When they discovered this tumor so late in its development, there was nothing they could do to save it. Rocky would just begin to suffer, leaving her no choice but to say goodbye.

“Rocky had to be knocked down that day. Rocky’s sudden death was hard to come to terms with, but we can’t imagine how hard it must be for Spencer to have lost his little brother. “- Beth Fisher

Coming home without Rocky was one of the hardest things Beth ever had to do. Not only did her home feel empty without his presence, but Spencer was devastated.

With Spencer so attached to Rocky, he had no idea what to do without his best furry friend. The grieving pup was absolutely broken and it began to show up as the days went on.

“Since Rocky died, Spencer has been getting up at night to look for his brother in the house. And then he starts crying because he can’t find him. “- Beth Fisher

Rocky’s ashes were placed on the shelf directly above where he and Spencer sleep, but it wasn’t enough to help his grieving brother. To bring him the comfort he desperately needed, Spencer received a special gift.

Spencer’s furry parents surprised him with a pillow with Rocky’s smiling face. From the moment he saw his best friend again, his aching heart sighed in relief.

“Spencer has snuggled into the pillow since arriving and carried it from the sofa to his own bed. He seems a lot calmer now that he has something to cuddle with. “- Beth Fisher

Spencer can now face the day with his best furry friend by his side again. Nothing can bring back the joy of having Rocky in his life, but we hope this pillow brings him the comfort he needs to move forward.

“I don’t think Spencer will ever get over Rocky’s death, but I hope he can learn without moving on. The way forward is one that he never has to face alone. “- Beth Fisher

We’re so happy that Spencer has such a wonderful family by his side and that he will never be alone when he misses his best buddy.
