The Reason This Dog Only Eats Half Her Food Will Both Warm and Break Your Heart | 22 Words

Dogs are really just too pure for this world, and for anyone who says that they don't have genuine feelings and the capacity to understand situations, need look no further for proof of that than this story relates.

Get out your tissues.

Filmmaker Easton Dufur tweeted out this story about his two dogs over the weekend.

I can't decide if this is more heartwarming or heartbreaking so I'll leave that up to you decide. What you see above is a photo of an only half-eaten dog food bowl.

This is the accompanying story and the reason you'll need those tissues.

"So we have only one food bowl for my two labs," he wrote. "And my dog Stitch trained my other dog Cookie to only eat half of the food that's in the bowl. So ever since she was young she knew to leave half of the food so Stitch can have some (he liked to make sure she would eat.)"

Get ready because this is going to be you in a minute.

"Now Stitch recently passed away. And this is Cookies first time alone. So since Stitch is gone, I've been feeding Cookie less food. Well before I went to bed, I wanted to check to see if she ate. And so I did, and she still left half of her food there so Stitch can eat." ALL THE FEELINGS!

If your heart broke a little, you're not alone, as Twitter felt the same way.

"We got Stitch when I was in kindergarten," Dufur told Mashable. "Then around the third grade is when we got Cookie. We felt that Stitch should have some company."

"But they were like Batman and Robin they were always together they always always got along and always were playing with each other and taking care of one another," he added.

If you think your heart can handle a little more, there are pictures of the two of them together...

And a video, to see them in action.

And even though Cookie is said, she is said to be doing okay.

"We still are making sure that she is getting love and comfort that she needs right now so she is doing well," said Dufur. Because Cookie is such a good girl. Now go and hug a dog.
