phoebeSaying goodbye to a dog is always difficult. One family in Australia honored their dog Phoebe in a simple but special way that has touched people all over the world.

A Reddit user spotted the special memorial for Phoebe at a dog beach in Australia. He snapped a picture of it and uploaded the picture to Reddit where it soon received thousands of comments from people who were moved by the memorial and shared their own stories of losing a dog.

The memorial to Phoebe was simple. A plastic bin filled with tennis balls sat on the beach with a sing above it. The sign had a snapshot of Phoebe and the following message:

“Please help yourself to a tennis ball for your dog to enjoy. You may wish to pop it back in the box afterwards for another pooch to enjoy. Remember to live each moment just like your dog; with unconditional love, loyalty and happiness.”

  1. What a simple but loving tribute to Phoebe; rest in peace sweet dog and condolences from someone who knows the pain of losing their best friend. If we did not truly love, we would not grieve.

  3. Love this! Absolutely commendable. I’ve known many dog owners of many walks of life but this is animal companionship at its best. I guess what I mean is that many people go through life with a pet not really understanding that we are both animals getting along with each other, they just seem to put up with more from than we ask of ourselves. The fact is we are somewhat equal and dependent to one another for different and many reasons. Any animal lover would agree. Phoebe was undoubtedly a special and loving pet. Loving an animal from beginning to end is never easy yet through good times and hard some amazing humans find the love of these dogs too unbearable to live without. Thanks to Phoebe’s loving caretakers, my faith in humanity has seen some much needed inspiration. Pets=Love
