Dog with cancer gets a loving farewell trip from owner

Some pet owners are just too attached to their pets, and cannot think about losing their best friends at all! Bella, a Labrador, was diagnosed with bone cancer early in 2015 – and after an amputation surgery, was given a few months to live. However, her owner Robert decided to give her a farewell gift and make it the most memorable days in their life. The duo went on a cross-country trip to various locations all over the United States, and spent quality time together. The best that came out of this entire effort is that the dog was possibly motivated by these efforts, and after 14 months, it is still going strong! Via: BoredPanDa
