Heartbroken Dog Won’t Stop Cuddling Pillow Of His Brother Who Passed Away

Two sweet dogs Spencer and Rocky are best friends, and they have been inseparable pals for 10 long and happy years.

“They had never spent a night apart,” said Beth Fisher, the dogs’ owner. “Rocky and Spencer slept in the same bed, ate from the same bowl, and always walked together when they went out.”

Sadly, their happy time together recently came to a close when vets pinpointed a large cancerous tumor that was growing inside of Rocky. It was too late for treatment, and the only option left was to end his suffering.

“Rocky had to get put down that day,” Fisher said. “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 after Rocky crossed the rainbow bridge. “Since Rocky passed, Spencer has been getting up in the night to wander the house looking for his brother,” Fisher said. “And then he starts crying because he can’t find him.”

It was clear that Spencer needed something to help him overcome this difficult time. So, Fisher’s dad ordered a pillow for Spencer with Rocky’s smiling face printed on it. The pillow seems to have helped fill the void Rocky’s passing left in Spencer’s heart.

“Spencer has been cuddling into the pillow since it arrived, carrying it from the sofa to his own bed,” Fisher said. “He seems a lot more settled now he’s got something to cuddle into.”

Of course, nothing can bring Rocky back and let him live with the family, but Spender can be comforted when his best friend is still by his side in spirit and he’ll never have to face alone on the path forward. And we hope that Spencer can take comfort in his new pillow and take comfort from his family.
