We already know that dogs make the best friends and are known to be extremely loyal animals, but this story is further proof.
Actor and filmmaker Easton Dufur had two yellow Labradors, Cookie and Stitch, who shared a very special bond with not only him, but with each other.
Dufur shared a story about them on Twitter that wound up going viral and stirred up the emotions of thousands.
He explained on Twitter that Stitch and Cookie always shared a food bowl. Stitch had trained Cookie to only eat half of the food so that Stitch was able to have some. Cookie caught on quickly, and ever since she was a puppy, she would leave half the food so her doggy brother could eat some.
Sadly, Stitch recently passed away, so now Cookie is without him for the first time. Cookie clearly misses her buddy Stitch, but Easton saw something that made his heart melt.
Easton has been putting less food in the bowl since Cookie is the only one eating out of it now.
“Well before I went to bed, I wanted to check to see if [Cookie] ate. And so I did, and she still left half of her food there so Stitch can eat,” Easton wrote.
Whether it was out of habit, or Cookie still had hope that her brother Stitch would be coming back to share her food, this is pretty heart-breaking and heart-warming all at once!
Dogs are so smart and this story just goes to show how loyal they really are.
