    Edit Photo Details My beloved dog Ferdo died.   #death #died #emotion #beloved #dog #burial #love_my_pet #many #years
    On december 18th I lost my beloved 14 years old Ferdo, a rescued spanish pointer. Originally he belonged to an 86 year old friend, who passed away 2 years ago. I had promised him to take Ferdo home with me to join my dalmatian if something happened to him. I buried him together with the remains of my old dalmatian Teddy who died 8 years ago, with which he grew up. His grave was going to be bulldozed, so I exhumed him to make them stay together forever... All together a big transition for me.

    Thank you so much for sharing this touching moment and the story that went with it. And my best to a good dog, Ferdo.
