If you've ever had the misfortune of hitting an animal while driving, you know that the act, even though it's unintentional, can haunt you.
Meet Paul Anka, Paul for short, who despite being a friendly, smiley pup, spent nine long months waiting for a forever home at LifeLine Animal Project in Georgia.
One of the most heartbreaking things you can experience is seeing your beloved pet age and reach those final days, and feeling helpless to make things better for them. All you can really do is keep them comfortable and make the decisions that they can’t make.
That was the case for a woman who recently posted a series of Snapchats on Imgur titled “Dogs are too amazing to let go, but sometimes it happens and they will forgive you,” which chronicles her last day with her dying dog, Hannah, who wasn’t able to walk and could barely make it up the stairs of their home without medication.
“I finally decided that keeping her on the meds was selfish, but keeping her off of them was just as cruel,” she wrote.
So she decided to treat Hannah to a day full of love, pampering, and treats to celebrate “the queen she’s always been” before taking her to the vet to be put down.
It started off with one of her favorite activities — a car ride.

Ahead of the Olympics, American athletes posed with puppies, not just because they’re adorable, but to bring awareness to thousands of animals in shelters who are still looking for a home.
The campaign, called Clear The Shelters, connected almost 20,000 pets with forever homes last month.
You might take your daily coffee runs for granted, but dogs living in shelters don’t get to go out and grab a cup. In fact, most of their days are spent just waiting for someone to walk in, fall in love, and take them to their forever home.
