Having a pet around will bring so many joy-filled days, but eventually the time will come to say goodbye. We know–no one likes to think about it, but it’s an inevitable part of having a pet. What you can control, though, is how you honor your pet’s legacy. 

After one family lost their beloved senior Dachshund, they chose to honor her love by sharing theirs with another dog.

When @stephaniejenson481 and her husband surprised their kids with the most adorable new family member, no one could imagine just how special it would be.

Now that’s what we love to see! The kiddos were both so kind and gentle to her, too, which only goes to show how much they care for animals. That precious little boy simply stole our hearts!

For some people, it takes a lot of time after saying goodbye to a pet before they feel ready to move on. And that’s okay!

Everyone navigates pet loss differently, but many folks find that opening their heart to a new dog is a beautiful way to honor the love they’ll always have for the pet who came before. 

In the case of Stacy and her family, this looks like the beginning of a beautiful new era. They already love the wiener dog puppy so much!
