Old man dies heartbroken after his 16-year-old dog dies

Dog lovers understand the bond of love that exists between people and their pets. We love our dogs so much that, in many cases, they are even closer to us than humans. Dogs give so much and ask for so little in return. 

A man named Ken, who lives in Hemet, California, with his little dog, Zack, is breaking hearts around the world with his story.

Ken lived in a mobile-home community with his 16-year-old dog, Zack. He lived a quiet life with his sweet old dog.

A neighbor came to visit Ken a few weeks ago and when there was no response. She started knocking on the door. When the neighbor came in, the dog was in a rough state. The dog owner, Ken, was crying, knowing his dog needed help, but he didn’t have the money to pay the vet.

The neighbor, named Burt, posted a request to social media for help. Within an hour, Elaine Seamans of the At-Choo Foundation, to help shelter dogs, contacted Burt.

The dog was taken to the vet, but unfortunately he was too sick to survive. Ken cried so hard he could barely stop.

In the end, Burt took a picture and the photo is capturing and breaking hearts around the world.

Cards came to Ken, but in a sad twist of destiny, he succumbed to a heart attack. Many was saying that he really died heartbroken since losing his beloved dog. We can fully understand.

We imagine that they are together in Heaven and are no longer suffering. Our condolences to all affected by this tragic loss.
