Spencer and Rocky were the absolute best for friends for a decade. They were inseparable, eating from the same plate, walking together outdoors, and even curling up in the same bed at night.
But then, a horrifying discovery came to light. Rocky was ill, and a checkup by the vet revealed a cancerous tumor. It was too big and too late to treat, and the tough decision had to be made to put the pup down before he suffered further. His ashes were later placed on a shelf over Spencer’s bed.
Spencer was absolutely devastated. He began to spend his nights searching the home for Rocky and breaking down to cry when he couldn’t locate him.
Beth Fisher, the pup’s Mom, didn’t know what to do.
That’s when her dad decided to help by ordering a special gift for Spencer – a custom pillow that had a picture of Rocky on it!
The moment Spencer saw the pillow, things changed. He was more at ease, and he began bringing it along with him everywhere. Having something to snuggle at night was definitely helpful in calming him down, and the fact that it bears an image of his best friend makes it even better.
Spencer’s family knows that he may never truly overcome the pain of losing someone he cares about so deeply, but they are hopeful that he will be able to slowly move on with the help of a lot of love.
After all, he has his whole family there to support him and offer him compassion in this difficult time.
