On Reddit, several users were touched after user what-fun-that-was posted a photo of piece of paper with a poem printed on it.
A compassionate veterinarian who had to put one family’s dog to sleep did his best to help ease the family’s heartache. He sent the family a poem adorned with their dog’s paw print.
The Reddit user posted the photo of the print with the caption: “The vet sent us this after having to put our 10 year old dog down”.
The poem reads:
“The tide recedes, but leaves behind bright seashells on the sand.
The sun goes down, but gentle warmth still lingers on the land.
The music stops, yet echoes on in sweet soulful refrains.
For every joy that passes, something beautiful remains.”
It has since earned more than 1,000 emotional comments from users who are also dog lovers.
One user said: “I am awestruck by how considerate and touching this is. The pawprint makes me sad though.”
