Bride Breaks Down in Tears on the Altar saying Goodbye to her Dying Dog

Whether you’re a man, a woman, young or old, these dogs that come into our lives usually turn out to be the best four-legged creatures we’ll ever meet.
And all of this means, that when it’s time to say goodbye to our beloved pups, it’s just as hard as saying goodbye to one of our ‘human’ family members.
It meant the world to Kelly that Charlie Bear was able to be a part of her big day. She adopted Charlie when he was a puppy. Charlie was 15 years old and had been battling a brain tumor for several months.
When Charlie Bear, the beloved black Labrador Retriever of bride Kelly O’Connell, was too weak to walk down the aisle on her wedding day, he was carried by the maid of honor so that he could be by Kelly’s side for the special moment.
The emotions captured in the photos are absolutely raw, and heartbreaking, but so beautiful. Everyone can relate to a moment like this, and although it was a bittersweet moment, I’m sure that O’Connell loved being able to have Charlie Bear there.
The wedding was one of Charlie’s last days with his family. Charlie passed away a few days later.
