A dog owner has captured the hearts of social media users after penning a tear-jerking tribute to her beloved dog who had died of cancer.
30-year-old Sallie Gregory Hammett from South Carolina opened up about the passing of her Golden Retriever, Charlie, in an emotional obituary that has been making rounds on the internet.
“Charlie James Gregory-Hammett crossed the rainbow bridge Sunday, September 13 peacefully in the arms of his mom,” the dog owner wrote.
As she went on to explained, Charlie was her “constant companion” who accompanied her “through heartache, moves, grief, and joy.”
“Charlie’s favorite activities were walking, stick collecting, swimming, smiling, and snoozing. If we’re being honest, Charlie loved everything life had to offer (except stairs. He hated stairs),” Sallie added.
“Charlie loved the beach, car rides, bananas, and socks. Charlie always loved going to his Grandma and Grandpa’s house, where he could get treats, chase squirrels, and pee everywhere cousin Captain peed. Charlie went tailgating, camping, hiking, and fishing. He lived the very best life.”
In the heartbreaking obituary, Sallie also recalled how her beloved pooch showered her with unconditional love and “taught everyone he met about loving people.”
As the 30-year-old explained, Charlie died after a five-month battle with lymphoma, whereas he had spent his last days running on the beach and enjoying the waves.
“We will think of him every time we open the peanut butter. We will miss him every time we see a sock on the floor or pass a stick on a walk. We will carry him with us everywhere,” the obituary concluded.
“He will be forever missed and forever remembered, but he left behind his fierce love, which never wavered. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you give all your pups some extra love in honor of Charlie.”
