“She was about 15 years old and I’ve had her since I was a kid,’ Nicole explains, before adding: ‘She started getting very sick. Having seizures, collapsing and unable to move or control her bladder. She was our baby and this was the hardest thing.”
“Libra was ready to go, so we helped her. She was so peaceful and happy and the picture makes me feel better about not having her around anymore.”
The photo was initially removed by Reddit administrators as it had distressing content, but it has since been reinstated and users started to share their own stories, as well as their condolences.
