Dad Captures A Heartbreaking Goodbye Of A 6-Year-Old With Her best friend


Last Updated on

It’s never easy to say goodbye to someone you love. Let alone someone you’ve known your entire life… And it’s got to be 10X’s harder if you’re only 6 years old!

6-year-old Lynn Bakker from Den Helder, Netherlands recently faced such an excruciating loss. The family bulldog, Jaden, was her best friend and companion since she came into this world.

At the time of Bakker’s birth, Jaden was already 7 years old. When Lynn turned 6, full of energy and curiosity– Jaden turned 13 with severely poor health. Poor Jaden became deaf, blind and was barely walking.

Hearing the vet’s diagnosis, Bakker’s dad, Jeffery decided that the dog would have to be euthanized.

He said, “Lynn could do anything with Jaden, he let her do anything: sit on him, put accessories on him, which led to some very funny photos.”
