American actor and director Kevin Smith has written a beautiful letter to his dying dog

Any dog lover knows the life of our four-legged friends is too short, and losing one brings a lot of pain and sadness. This heartbreaking moment, Kevin Smith has recently experienced. he, in fact, lost his man’s best friend Mulder.

He shared a moving letter full of sadness and love before the death of his dog.and he posted a photo, on his Facebook account, of him caring Mulder in his arms, with the news that Mulder was dying.

He wrote

“Dark day in our household: our oldest dog Mulder is dying. As I’ve spent the last year carrying him around like Hodor, I’m not taking this terribly well. They never tell you when you get a dog, but there is a price to pay for being the recipient of 17 years of unconditional love, loyalty, and companionship: they take a huge chunk of your heart with them when they go. I’m reminded of a line from DOCTOR WHO, Series 2 – the “School Reunion” episode (which featured the return of Sara Jane Smith and the robot dog K-9, ironically enough): “You can spend the rest of your life with me… but I can’t spend the rest of my life with you.” And later, when Rose asks Sara Jane if she should go with the Doctor, Sara Jane responds “Some things are worth getting your heart broken for.” Mulder was beyond worth it. Fuck, this hurts…”

A few hours later, Mulder passed away. Around 1 pm that day, he updated his Facebook status and wrote:

1 pm UPDATE:

“He’s gone. RIP Mulder, my Buddy-Man. Thank you for 17 years of sheer joy and affection. It took a dog like you to make me a better person. If you’re a dog-owner, go hug your dog a little tighter tonight. If you’re not a dog-owner, think about becoming one. It’s all love.Good night sweet Mulder. Rest in Peace”.

Please SHARE this with everyone, and remember then to hug your pet close to your heart as much as you can while they are still with you.
