Farewell to a very special hero, golden retriever Bretagne. The 16-year-old dog was euthanized on Monday at a veterinary clinic in Houston, TX after she began experiencing kidney failure over the past few weeks, and her owner, Denise Corliss, watched as she failed two do her favorite thing for three days in a row: eating.
ABC News explained that about two-dozen first responders lined the sidewalk leading to the veterinarian’s office to salute Bretagne ask she took her final walk into the vet. As she was carried out of the office, an American flag was draped over her body. Watch a clip of the touching farewell tribute to Bretagne below.
