Libra the Pit Bull mix was just a little puppy when she was brought to the Kramer household. The sweet pooch soon forged a precious bond with the family’s daughter, April, who was just 8 back then.
Over the years, Libra also became best friends with her adorable kitten sibling, Maxwell.
As time flew by, April grew up and Libra turned into a reliable source of support for her. But after being by her sister’s side for 15 blissful years, senior Libra’s health started giving away. Her troubles began with some violent seizures, which then led to the discovery of cancerous pulmonary tumors. After several vet visits, the verdict was loud and clear – Libra was in a lot of pain and didn’t have much time left.
For the Kramers, Libra had been nothing but a good girl, and they didn’t want her to suffer for long. As the ailing dog’s bladder failed rapidly and caused her unbearable agony, the family decided to face the inevitable. However, there was one last thing that April wanted to do for Libra to thank her for her unconditional and everlasting love.
Libra was always a fan of car rides. So on her last car ride to the vet, April decided to roll down the window and let Libra cherish her favorite experience. For the next 30 minutes, the sickly dog looked at peace as she felt the breeze and treasured the passing scenery with her eyes closed one last time.
Libra has crossed the rainbow bridge now, and her spirit is far away from any pain or fear. A grieving April has shared the emotional picture of Libra’s final car ride as a way to honor the legacy of her best childhood buddy. It sure is beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time. Rest in peace, sweet girl.
