Dog mourning loss of best dog friend eats only half bowl of food

A dog’s love for another dog may be the best love.

Easton Dufur knows that first hand. The 18-year-old aspiring actor and filmmaker recently shared a photo of a dog bowl neatly showing it was only half-moon full with kibble.

Turns out his family’s labrador Stitch “trained” their other lab, Cookie, to share.

“So ever since she was young she knew to leave half of the food so Stitch can have some,” he posted on Twitter from Boise, Idaho.

But earlier this month, Stitch died. Old age.

And the family, started cutting back the food rations.

“Well, before I went to bed I wanted to check to see if she ate,” Dufur explained. “And so I did, and she left half of her food there so Stitch can eat.”

People reading it died.

Which of course caused on a outpouring of love — and tears — online.

And advice.

Dufur then shared photos of Cookie and Stitch.

And a video.

And the internet lapped it up.
