Get ready for some waterworks, this one is a tearjerker. When Beth Fisher's dog Rocky passed away, one member of the family took it really hard -- his loving brother Spencer. Spencer and Rocky were inseparable and have never been a day apart. The poor grieving pup would helplessly cry, in search for his brother. That is until Fisher's dog thought of this beautiful gift to help him cope.

In an interview with The Dodo, Beth Fisher revealed that the dogs "had never spent a night apart. Rocky and Spencer slept in the same bed, ate from the same bowl and always walked together when they went out."
For 10 years...
These two did absolutely everything together.
Beth Fisher had found an ailment on Rocky and took him to the vet to get it checked out
The ailment proved to be a very large cancerous tumor that was growing inside of him. And unfortunately the tumor had developed to the point that made it too late for any sort of treatment. Devastated, the tragic discovery left her only with one option -- to end poor Rocky's suffering.
Fisher said, "Rocky had to get put down that day. It was hard to process Rocky's sudden death, but we can't imagine how hard it must be for Spencer to have lost his little brother."
Spencer was heartbroken — and it showed.
Fisher continued, "Since Rocky passed, Spencer has been getting up in the night to wander the house looking for his brother. And then he starts crying because he can't find him."
The article also states that Rocky's ashes have been placed on a shelf above where Spencer and Rocky both slept, to keep the two close. However, it was apparent that Spencer needed something more to help through this difficult time.
To help Spencer cope, Fisher's dad ordered pillow with Rocky's smiling face printed on it.
Since then, the mourning pup no longer sleeps alone
"Spencer has been cuddling into the pillow since it arrived, carrying it from the sofa to his own bed," Fisher said. "He seems a lot more settled now he's got something to cuddle into."
"I don’t think Spencer will ever get over Rocky’s passing, but I hope he’s able to learn to go on without him"
"We’re hoping Spencer is able to take comfort in his new pillow, and take comfort from all the cuddles he’s getting from his family,"
