Grieving dog won't stop cuddling pillow of brother who passed away

Grieving dog won't stop cuddling pillow of brother who passed away

A heartbreaking series of images of a dog cuddling the pillow of his deceased brother after he passed away from cancer has gone viral on social media.

Spencer and Rocky were inseparable for the better part of a decade. However, after a visit to the vet, a scan revealed that Rocky had developed a cancerous tumour, and the family had to make the difficult decision to put him down. After Rocky's euthanasia, Spencer has apparently been inconsolable.

Commenting on the relationship between the two canines in a recent interview, Beth stated:

"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. 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."

She added: "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. 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."
