Little boy says an emotional goodbye to his 17-year-old best friend – his pet dog


A grieving man pulls out his camera and starts to record the scene in front of him. He’s at a vet clinic after a tragic accident crippled his 17-year-old dog, BaoBao.

In the video, his young son sits cross-legged beside their dog and struggles to understand why they have to say goodbye. The father does his best to explain that if they wait, BaoBao will be in too much pain. It may be hard for them to let her go, but they love BaoBao too much to let her suffer.

The accident happened quickly and without warning. Earlier that day, the father decided to take his scooter out to buy lunch. BaoBao hopped into her usual place next to him. At an intersection, he had already slowed to a walking speed when she fell off the scooter.

“There was only one other vehicle anywhere near me,” the father wrote later in his video’s description. “Its rear tire went over BaoBao’s back crippling her and smashing her pelvis. She would have needed extensive surgery and with no guarantee of being able to walk ever again.”

It was unusual for BaoBao to simply fall off the way she did. Over the years, they’d clocked in over 200,000 km on a scooter together and even returned from a 1500 km tour a couple of days ago. Up until that tragic moment, there’d been nothing to indicate anything was wrong.
