Loyal dog won't forget his best friend (PHOTOS)

Dogsarefamily_thumb By Dogs Are Family | December 15, 2013 | Comments (5)

Tonka the dog and Sarah the cat were best friends and took care of each other. Julie Nelson shared the story behind their special relationship with DogHeirs and wrote:

"Tonka is 9 ½ years old, and has the sweetest, most gentle soul. Tonka and Sarah became best friends shortly after we got him in 2004."

Tonka and Sarah were best friends and liked to play and cuddle together

"They loved to play and chase each other around the house. Tonka was always so gentle while playing with her, like he knew she was more fragile than him."

Tonka and Sarah were best friends

"After they would play, Sarah would always groom Tonka by licking him all over his face and head, then they would fall asleep together, with their heads touching. It was the sweetest thing!"

Tonka and Sarah were best friends

"Sarah died on November 15th  2013, at the age of 15 ½. After Sarah died, Tonka started sleeping with his nose snuggled in her kitty bed.  I’m pretty sure he can smell her on it! It's both heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time."

Take care Tonka....got me crying.....RIP Sarah :(
Poor Tonka! I'm sure he misses her like crazy. Bless his heart.
aww poor tonka. maybe he needs a new buddy? one of our dogs got depressed after another pet loss. it took awhile to find just the right new friend but we did and she brought him out of his funk.
What a touching story of a gentle and loving friendship. When humans lose someone very close we will mourn for a while and then pick ourselves back up, find new friendships and love. We will do our best to live our lives the best we can to honor those that we have lost. Perhaps in time Tonka will open his heart up to a new little cat and he will begin to heal. Until then give Tonka a great big hug for me. Beautiful dog. Thanks for sharing their story.
