Just like humans, dogs have feelings too, they are intelligent enough to feel emotion, especially grieving.
The reaction from doggo Fran after seeing a portrait of his brother who recently passed away is nothing short of tear-jerking.
Last month, after Smiff passed away, his owner Libby Davey thought it would be nice to commission a painting of him to hang in her home.
This sweet old pup named Smiff may be gone, but he’s certainly not forgotten.
Little could she have guessed that it would be as meaningful to Frank as it would be for her.
When the portrait was finished, and Davey hung it on a wall, Frank had the most touching reaction to seeing it.
“I think Frank knows that’s a painting of his brother,” Davey wrote.

Smiff’s spirit may have run free, but in some ways he’d never really left.
The new painting simply revealed that truth.
Nothing can ever bring Smiff back in the flesh, of course — but it’s clear that his loving memory will live on forever in the hearts of Davey and Frank.
A good dog like Smiff deserves nothing less.
