Photo of a Senior Dog's Last Car Ride Leaves the World in Tears

All dogs go to heaven. But, as their humans, it’s a reality we never want to face. Our pets become our friends – family members – that look to us for comfort and affection. They become our children, and in the end we cherish them more than most people. And when their short lives come to a close, our hearts break.  We want to make their last days as special as possible. They get all the love an affection as if they were a puppy again. We’ll give them treats, cheese burgers, etc. In the end, we want to show them that we love the. That is why one photo is moving the world to tears.

This is Libra in a Sweet Photo

Though it has been two years since this sweet pup has passed, Libra touched the hearts of many. As the car goes down the road, she puts her nose up to the open window. Clearly you can see she’s enjoying the air passing over her. The sweet photograph shows a slight smile upon Libra’s face, pulling on our emotions.

A Reddit user by the name of ewhippieyoustink2 posted the picture to a thread. It depicted Libra enjoying a last moment before her owner said good-bye one last time.

“She was our baby and this was the hardest thing,” NicoleAlderman writes on Imgur. “She was about 15 years old and I’ve had her since I was a kid. She started getting very sick (frequent seizures, couldn’t control her bladder, etc.) Libra was ready to go, so we helped her. She was so peaceful and happy and the picture makes me feel better about not having her around anymore.”

Our loving pets deserve nothing but the best.

Though some who commented on the photo thought it was inappropriate to post something like this, others gave their best wishes. You can clearly see the dogs age in his wrinkled skin, sparse coat and grey hair. With a wide smile and closed eyes, he’s taking in the fresh air one last time.

If you are one who cries easily when an animal dies in the movie, this photo is NSFW. Let the water-works ensue!


Take extra time today and give your heartfelt love to your pet – the one who loves you above all else. As heartbreaking as this photo is, seeing Libra so clearly happy is a reminder to give our pets as much love as we have to give, because their time on this earth is short.
