Dale Thompson shared on Twitter the terrible moment of saying goodbye to his 14-year-old dog, Murphy. He was fighting cancer for a while. Saying goodbye to your beloved pup is one of the hardest feelings that we ever have in life. This pain never fades away.

Thompson wrote, “This is Murphy’s 14th & last Christmas with me. Tragically, the cancer is now all through his nose and into his throat. There’s nothing else I can do except make him comfortable & happy.”

A few days after the Christmas holidays, Thompson shared with his followers a video of Murphy having a slow walk down the street that ended up being his final walk ever.

Thompson said “Murphy walked to the vet today for the last time. He walked in with dignity, clarity, and honour. He left this world the same way he came into it: With style, grace and happy.”

Saying goodbye to his beloved pup is very hard although Thompson knows that it’s time to find comfort. Murphy was suffering a long time ago fighting cancer and he will not be suffering anymore.

Thompson stated: “Even in the end, he was happy and when I cried to say goodbye, he tried to get up and leave with me. I couldn’t tell him enough how sorry I was for doing this and how I regretted every single time I got upset at him or didn’t spend enough time with him too. He was happy.”

In a longer and much more detailed Medium post, Thompson expanded on Murphy’s disease as well as their final moments together.

“You know I would’ve taken on your cancer from you if I could’ve. You were an anomaly for not only loving visits to the vet but enjoying getting a needle. Your last gesture was to stop me from crying before your final breath. I wonder if you understood when I asked you to wait for me on the other side.”

There were thousands of other people on Twitter who knew what he was going through, so there were many comments who were willing to offer kind words to a grieving Thompson.

“Went through the same with my Schuey. He walked into the vet too and I sat on the floor with him until he was at peace. Wish they could live longer. Sending massive hugs,” wrote @bethmc1974.
