Dog lovers, make sure you have a box of tissues handy for this one. It’s a 100% certified gut-wrencher.

Twitter user Victor Flores (@Victahhhh) and his family with coming to terms with the fact that the family beagle would have to be put to sleep.

But devastated though they were, they weren’t about to let her pass on without a very special send-off.

The family, from Austin, Texas, took Daisy for a final walk and throughout the day treated her to all of her favourite foods.

Victor documented the whole thing on Twitter, where the pictures have been shared with nearly 100k people. There’s a lot of dog-lovers out there.

No less than the most succulent bacon rashers for lunch.

Then it was time for a walk. According to Metro, Daisy had ruptured a disc in her back when she was 13-years-old, but while she wasn’t able to move around herself at the end, the Flores’s could still take her out and about in a special wagon.

And if lunch was a treat, dinner was a feast fit for kings (or Queens). We’re talking steak, chicken, vegetables – the lot.

Knowing that she was to be put down the next day, the internet reacted to the heartbreaking (but happy) pictures as you might expect.

And then came the final tribute.

Right, that’s it. You’ve finished us off mate. Love your dogs, people.
