Puppy accompanies his best friend to school every day until he graduates
When you decide to welcome a pet into your home, it is always a happy event. In some cases, some people start off thinking a pet is just an animal who lives in their home - but later they realize that their pets are so much more: they become part of the family.
An example of this is Ruger, a dog who accompanied his best friend from his first day at elementary school until he graduated years later.
On his first day at elementary school, little Dylan Bliss posed for a photo with his cute puppy, named Ruger, by his side. In fact, a deep friendship developed between the two and Ruger became Dylan's constant companion. "No matter what grade I was in, I would always be greeted by Ruger at the door when I came home from school," Dylan said.
After 11 years, Dylan took a new photograph with Ruger: this time, however, Ruger is old and Dylan is a young adult. The photo shows them together with Dylan in his graduation clothes. Dylan's mom, Corie, decided to share both photos on Facebook.
"No matter what I was doing, Ruger was always there with me. On vacation, after school, he's always been there with us. He's present in almost every memory I have of my life," Dylan commented. "That's true," said Corie. "I have dozens of photos of our beautiful puppy," she added. "We have a small farm and he loves all the animals. He loves running around and swimming in the pool. He has a very nice life. We have had Ruger since he was born and he is a part of our lives," Dylan said.
And we hope that Ruger will be around for a long time to come living with this wonderful family.
