Owner Gives Beloved Dog ‘All the Human Food’ for His Last Days on Earth

Many people on the internet were left in tears after a woman shared a video of a special farewell to her elderly and sick dog during his last few days.

The dog owner, a Florida body piercer who goes by the username piercings_by_calah, shared the video on TikTok on Monday, where it got almost 776,000 views and about 1,700 comments.

The video, accompanied by a line that reads: “All the human food for my best boys last weekend,” shows the 13-year-old dog, Bleu, enjoying all kinds of delicious human food that he’d never tried before, from cheesy tacos to eggs, not forgetting pizza and fried chicken, provided by his heartbroken owner as final treats.

In a comment, the owner explained that Bleu was suffering from an extremely aggressive form of cancer, he had multiple mass cell tumors, and that he was down to 65 pounds and losing control of his faculties.

According to ScienceFocus, the median lifespan of dogs is thought to be between 10 and 13 years, but the figure varies significantly depending on the breed and several other factors. While there’s little difference between males and females, smaller breeds live longer than larger ones, and mixed breeds live longer than purebreds.

The oldest dog ever was an Australian cattle dog called Bluey, who survived to the age of 29.

The Humane Society of the United States says that neutering or spaying your dog will help them live a longer life.

“A contributor to the increased longevity of altered pets is their reduced risk of certain types of cancers. Intact female cats and dogs have a greater chance of developing pyometra and uterine, mammary gland and other cancers of the reproductive system. Neutering male pets eliminates their risk of testicular cancer and eliminates the possibility of developing benign prostatic hyperplasia which can affect the ability to defecate.”

Most comments on the post were from people who had also lost their furry friend, trying to give Calah some comfort in knowing that she was not alone in her pain.

Hoosier.daddy2.0 said: “i’m sorry for your loss. I choose to believe Blue is up there playing with my dogs.”

Another user, G__kaee, said: “Wishing you safe passage bleu, find a brindle mutt named Seamus Guinness McGrath. He was always everyone’s bff. And it’s clear he had some great hoomans that loved him. I’m so sorry for your loss. “

Other users praised her decision to spoil her beloved dog and shared similar experiences. Aimnkev said: “We did this for our 14 year old pup. It was so hard but she ate well and drank some beer.” Parrotheadoverlander said: “My senior puppy was getting Oreo at the vet office while waiting for her flight across the (rainbow) bridge. She killed an entire sleeve, Lol.”

A veterinary technician, who goes by the username slurpnterps, also commented on the video saying that on these occasions spoiling a dog with food is the best thing you can do: “Bless your heart, I’m sorry y’all had to go through this, I’m a vet tech and sometimes the only comfort you can bring is food they haven’t had.”

Newsweek has reached out to Calah for further comment.
