Spencer and Rocky for 10 long years were inseparable pals and the best of friends.
The adorable brothers happiest times were simply being around one another.
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.”
Unfortunately the pairs happy time together recently came to an end.
During a visit to the vet after an ailment on the blonde dog Rocky was discovered, a large cancerous tumor was found to be growing inside of him.
The heartbreaking discovery was too late for treatment and left only one option to end the poor pup’s suffering.
“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 absolutely heartbroken at the loss of his friend.
“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.”
Although Rocky’s ashes were placed on a shelf above where he and his brother slept, to keep the pair close, it was apparent that Spencer needed something more to help him to cope.
Fisher’s dad ordered this: a pillow for Spencer with Rocky’s smiling face printed on it.
Straight away the thoughtful gift put Spencer at ease.
The pillow honouring Rocky seems to have warmed Spencer’s heart.
“Spencer has been cuddling into the pillow since it arrived, carrying it from the sofa to his own bed,”
“He seems a lot more settled now he’s got something to cuddle into.”
Spencer no longer has to sleep alone thanks to this precious gift.
Nothing can ever bring Rocky back completely.
Spencer, who himself is getting old now, drifts off to sleep reassures to know his best friend is still by his side.
“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”
