Saying goodbye to a pet can be an extremely difficult experience for anyone, as it was for this particular family who recently had to bid farewell to their beloved 16-year-old dog. This loss can be devastating and can result in a range of emotions.
Sadly, Okey, a beloved member of the family for 16 years, passed away this February. However, his kind nature and infectious smile continued to touch the hearts of those around him until his last moments.
In a heartwarming video captured by his owner, Okey is seen resting in the embrace of a young boy while his loved ones gather around him in his final moments.
Despite his declining strength, Okey showed his appreciation by nodding in agreement when the mother sang him a soothing lullaby. However, shortly after the mother expressed her gratitude for his nearly two decades of companionship, Okey peacefully passed away.
The departure of Okey from his family was a saddening experience for them all, especially the young boy. However, they understood that it was necessary as Okey had been unwell for a period spanning two years, and had even required hospitalization.
Regrettably, there was no viable treatment for Okey, and as a result, his family decided to bring him back home. The elderly dog was able to spend his final days in the loving embrace of those who cherished him the most.
Despite Okey’s constant illness, his family was not prepared for his departure to come so soon. The teenage boy tenderly held Okey’s weak body, realizing that his time was limited. However, Okey was fortunate enough to have the comfort of his family during his final moments. In March, a video documenting Okey’s passing was shared on YouTube and garnered over 1.72 million views. The viewers offered their condolences and sympathy to the grieving family who had lost their beloved canine companion.
The departure of Okey and his family was an emotional one, but they held onto the belief that it wasn’t a final farewell. “We’ll reunite in the next life,” they expressed their gratitude to each other. If you’re interested in seeing the final moments of Okey’s life, you can watch the footage here.
