They say all dogs go to heaven, and this dog was sweet enough to send a message from up above that he’s doing just fine.
Catie Callaghan’s family lost their beloved dog just over a week ago. He was 15 and underwent multiple surgeries, according to an interview Callaghan gave to BuzzFeed News.
Bandit had a special bond with his family, and Callaghan said the bond Bandit had with her father was extra special.
After undergoing his last surgery, Bandit sadly passed away.
“So my 15-year-old dog passed away two days ago. My mom found his water bowl like this tonight. Doggie heaven does exist. Love you Bandit,” Callaghan wrote on Twitter.
