Spencer and Rocky had had a bond that lasted for 10 years.
Throughout their journey, they had nothing but love for each other.
“They had never spent a night apart,” Beth Fisher, the dogs’ owner, said. “Rocky and Spencer slept in the same bed, ate from the same bowl and always walked together when they went out.”
But fate is twisted and sometimes, evil. Their long journey had to come to an end.
The blonde dog, Rocky, was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor inside of him. Since the discovery was too late, there was no other way to help Rocky.
“Rocky had to get put down that day,” Fisher said. “It was hard to process Rocky’s sudden death, but we can’t imagine how hard it must be for Spencer to have lost his little brother.”
To say Spencer was gutted would be an understatement.
“Since Rocky passed, Spencer has been getting up in the night to wander the house looking for his brother,” Fisher said. “And then he starts crying because he can’t find him.”
To keep the pair close, the owners had placed Rocky’s ashes near the shelf of their beds. But that wasn’t enough for Spencer.
When Fisher’s dad ordered a pillow with Rocky’s face on it, there wasn’t much hope.
But it worked magnificently.
It seemed as though seeing Rocky’s face every day filled him with new zeal.
“Spencer has been cuddling into the pillow since it arrived, carrying it from the sofa to his own bed,” Fisher said. “He seems a lot more settled now he’s got something to cuddle into.”
He doesn’t sleep alone anymore.
Even though nothing can bring back Rocky anymore, Spencer is dealing with the loss pretty well since he got the pillow. It’s like he knows Rocky is still with him in spirit.
“I don’t think Spencer will ever get over Rocky’s passing, but I hope he’s able to learn to go on without him,” Fisher said. “We’re hoping Spencer is able to take comfort in his new pillow, and take comfort from all the cuddles he’s getting from his family,”
