The love for our furry friends is eternal. They are our best friends, cuddle buddies and more. So when we have to say goodbye, it is a very heartbreaking experience.
Sallie Hammett, who lives in Greenville, S.C., lived with her good boy Charlie for seven years. Sally took her puppy everywhere, they were inseparable. However, the golden retriever sadly lost his five-month battle with lymphoma earlier this month.
Hammett penned a heartfelt obituary for her departed best friend, whom she adopted as a 23-year-old living in a new city, the News reports.
Charlie was Hammett’s “constant companion” through moves, grief, joy, and eventually her marriage. He loved collecting sticks, swimming, and smiling. He hated stairs. Who doesn’t?
She tweeted out the obituary, which has now been seen by thousands of Twitter users.
I wrote my dog an obituary because of course I did. He was the best boy. pic.twitter.com/FKmqeivtq9

“He was good at a lot of things, but he was best at unconditional love,” Hammett writes. “He taught everyone he met about loving people and always seeing the good in everyone.”
“We will think of him every time we open the peanut butter,” she writes. “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.”
