Touching Moment Heartbroken Dog Says His Last Goodbye To His Old Best Friend

 Here's a poignant pic of Chief the dog bidding his owner, William D. 'Bill' Schiller, farewell. Schiller and his partner Anne Marie Sibthorp adopted Chief, a rescue dog, in 2014. They had been inseparable friends since the beginning.

 


There is a specific chemistry between a person and a dog when they are truly special, Sibthorp explained. They were inseparable; they belonged together.

 


Schiller, sadly, passed over the rainbow and was laid to rest in Canton on April 13 at Forest Hill Cemetery. Friends and relatives gathered to say their final goodbyes to Bill Schiller before he was laid to rest. They were not, however, the only ones in grief.

 


Sibthrop knew she had to do something for his boyfriend, so she took Chief into the chapel for one last meeting with Schiller. No one could have predicted how gently the dog would say his final goodbye to his owner when Sibthorp escorted him to Schiller's casket.



He got to say his last goodbye to his daddy, Sibthorp explained. And that was significant. She will never forget the heartbreaking moment in our church when Chief said his final farewell to his dearest friend.

 


Seeing a dog standing on his tiptoes peering into a casket touched the hearts of this community, said Sam James, director of the James Funeral Home in Huntersville, North Carolina. Anne Marie (Sibthorp) sent it to us, James explained. We asked her if it was okay if we shared it with the community because it was such a touching photo.

Please tell everyone about this tale!
