To people who have never owned a pet, this story might sound a little crazy. To people who have owned a pet, this probably sounds like something you would totally do without a second thought.
Rebecca has a dog named Apollo, and every year on his birthday, she likes to do something special for him. Taking him to petco and buying him a new toy or treat is one of those things…but Rebecca used to do this with an ex-boyfriend. Once they split up, she knew that Apollo probably missed him and was confused as to why he wasn’t ever home anymore.
But after they had broken up, Rebecca opened her mailbox to discover that Apollo had received a letter from her ex! Inside was a birthday card and a giftcard to Apollo filled with all of the sentiment one could imagine for a lovable pooch.
We both love Apollo. He is our child. It sounds silly to people who aren’t animal lovers, but to us he is family. Our family.” She wrote.
The post quickly went viral as thousands of pet-lovers around the world could relate to something this sweet! Our favorite pets deserve love, and they will always have a place in our hearts…even if their owners do not. She bought Apollo a cute birthday gift, thanks to her ex!
