It’s no secret that some dogs can get too attached to their owners that they get separation anxiety whenever their owners leave them alone no matter how briefly they do.
A video recently went viral after it was shared on Reddit that shows a lonely dog that found a heartbreaking way to comfort himself while his owners are away.
Warning; you need some tissues, because tears are inevitable.
The video starts by showing the dog going to get one of his owner’s shoes from another room.
The dog, unaware of the surveillance camera, then got up on the couch and curled up with the shoes, seeking comfort with something that reminds him of his owner.
The post was shared on Reddit while captioned:
his surveillance camera catches the moment a dog took his owner’s shoe and sleeps beside it showing how much he misses his owner while he was at work.
The video quickly went trending on the website, breaking the hearts of thousands of people who felt the dog’s loneliness from the video. Many redditors added that it will now be very hard for them to leave for work at the morning knowing how truly lonely their dogs will be after they leave the house.
Other people shared stories that showed the incredibly sweet things their pets do while they’re out of the house.
“My dog does it all the time with my slippers when I go out. If I’m out for too long he might go and get the other slipper too. When I come home I find her sleeping with one or two slippers,”
Another person commended:
My dog takes one flip flop or one boot. It’s quite funny and odd. When I first had him he would chew one flip flop so it would always break at the worst time when I was out somewhere! He doesn’t chew anymore just carries one to his bed when I am out for the day!
