For 10 long and happy years, Spencer and Rocky were inseparable pals. Beth Fisher, the dogs’ owner said:
They had never spent a night apart. Rocky and Spencer slept in the same bed, ate from the same bowl and always walked together when they went out.
During a visit to the vet, blonde dog Rocky had developed a large cancerous tumor. It’s too late for treatment.
Rocky had to get put down that day. It was hard to process Rocky’s sudden death, but we can’t imagine how hard it must be for Spencer to have lost his little brother.
Spencer was heartbroken.
Since Rocky passed, Spencer has been getting up in the night to wander the house looking for his brother. And then he starts crying because he can’t find him.
So, Fisher’s dad ordered a pillow for Spencer with Rocky’s smiling face printed on it. The pillow honoring Rocky seems to have helped fill the void his passing had left in Spencer’s heart.
Spencer has been cuddling into the pillow since it arrived, carrying it from the sofa to his own bed. The mourning dog sleeps alone no longer.
He seems a lot more settled now he’s got something to cuddle into.
Fisher added: I don’t think Spencer will ever get over Rocky’s passing, but I hope he’s able to learn to go on without him. We’re hoping Spencer is able to take comfort in his new pillow, and take comfort from all the cuddles he’s getting from his family.
