Now, each time I look down, it’s like he is hugging me, For six long and happy years, Anna Halcin her dear dog, Sebastian, were inseparable friends. Through all of life’s ups and downs, the little puppy never failed to make Halcin smile.
” He was special to me, and always will certainly be,” Halcin told The Dodo. “We were definitely best friends.”
Amongst the many ways Sebastian would certainly reveal his love for Halcin was a sweet gesture he had actually invented all on his own.
Relatively always at the perfect time, Sebastian would certainly walk up and cover his little paws around Halcin’s arm.
” He liked giving my arm a hug,” Halcin claimed.
As joyful as their time together was, however, it could not last permanently. Last October, unfortunately, Sebastian died.
Halcin was heartbroken to suddenly be apart from her precious dog. But in the midst of her sorrow, she thought of a wonderful method to make Sebastian forever a part of her.
” I wanted something that was always with me, whatever, and a tattoo seemed just best,” Halcin said.
She picked a layout that mirrored Sebastian’s favorite pose:
Just as Sebastian would embrace Halcin in life, he now does the same in spirit– memorialized in that artistic homage.
” Now, every time I look down, it’s like he is hugging me,” Halcin said. “That’s helped me cope quite a bit.”
Sebastian might be gone, but he’s still making Halcin smile and bringing her comfort when she needs it most. Like he always had.
Nowadays, through that tattoo in his honor, Sebastian remains to survive on in other people’s hearts too.
After Halcin shared the body art with a pet loss support group online, it caused an outpouring of well-wishes and praise– for both the tattoo and the sweet little dog who inspired it.
Sebastian’s hug just keeps on providing.
” A lot of individuals messaged me after that, showing me the pictures of their similar-looking canines, and I see him in each one of them,” Halcin claimed. “I such as to believe it’s him saying, ‘Hi, Mama,’ each time.”
