Daisy the beagle was taken from us all too soon. Thanks to a series of now-viral images, people across the world who never even met her are crying as they scroll through the story of her very last day on Earth. The pictures are heartbreaking, yes, but also so affirming of the bond between people and their dogs.
Daisy, who was 13, was too old for the surgery she needed to restore function to her lower half. She was living in constant pain from a ruptured disc. After exhausting all options, her family wanted to spare their sweet girl further pain, so they chose to give her a wonderful sendoff.
On Twitter, Victor Flores shared the images his Mom texted of all the treats she showered on Daisy for her last day. The beagle’s “bucket list” included:
Bacon for lunch
Wagon rides around the neighborhood
Steak and roast chicken for dinner
And plenty of snuggle time
The response was a literal waterfall of tears.
Rest in peace, fair Daisy. Know how much you are loved!
Bless you Daisy!
