Heartbroken dog pays tribute to her furry best friend by lying on his grave for hours

Gaspar's human family recently laid him to rest in their backyard and soon after Kaya laid herself upon his freshly dug grave.

There wasn't a single soul that didn't love a brown-eyed, adorable pooch named Gaspar. Maybe that's why when he passed away following an illness, everyone was left heartbroken. But no one missed or loved him more than Kaya, who mourned his death for days.

Gaspar's human family recently laid him to rest in their backyard and soon after Kaya laid herself upon his freshly dug grave. She stayed there all morning and the bitter-sweet moment was captured by Gaspar's owner Marcelo Rodríguez, who then posted it on his Twitter account. 



 

People could clearly see the unspoken, special relationship Kaya shared with Gaspar. Apparently, Kaya belonged to Rodríguez's mother and that's how the two pups came in contact. They would spend hours playing happily until Gaspar passed away in January after suffering from kidney failure, according to The Dodo

"One Wednesday at 2:19 p.m. you slept in an apartment on the fifth floor, listening to music, with a lot of style, just the way you liked it," noted Rodríguez in an Instagram post. He went on to thank his beloved pet for his loyalty and boundless love. "You taught me countless things without saying a single word. Thank you for all this company time."

"You had a very peculiar life in this strange world, and you will always be with us, because knowing you, for being lazy and stubborn, I don't think you will be very far away. Thank you Gaspar, the dog that lived," it concluded. As for Kaya, she definitely misses her best friend, and the pictures shared on Twitter speak volumes about their strong bond.



 

"We would get them together on weekends to spend time together. That’s where their friendship began," said Rodríguez of the endless tail wags that would follow when they met. Like every good thing, their time together also came to an end. Thankfully, she got a chance to say goodbye to her closest friend.  

Despite the heartbreak, it's clear that Gaspar was immensely loved by both his family and friend, Kaya. It's nice to know that he led a joyful life before his demise and even though the sadness of his passing has broken his family, they at least have beautiful memories that will be treasured forever. His spirit will live on in Kaya's heart.

"Animals are superior beings that we will never understand and that we do not deserve," wrote Rodríguez concluding the post.
