Doggy Comfort

Many people think of their dogs ... as ... well ... dogs.  Somehow, lesser members of the family because they do not have the same feelings as people.  We at Family Pooch don't believe this.  The family dog is an important member of the family and has a large range of emotions.

An example of this is Twinkle the dog, who, after losing her puppies, became attached to three stuffed toys. Xavier Hernandez, who tweeted a photo of the dog surrounded by the stuffed animals, Twinkle has been comforted by the toys. He told BuzzFeed: "She doesn't do anything without them and wouldn't let anyone touch them."

Twinkle's puppies died during birth

He tweeted two images of Twinkle with the toys, writing: "So my dog was pregnant and she lost all 3 of her puppies so my mum bought her these toys and she thinks they're her puppies...breaks my [heart]." People were quick to react to the sad pictures on Twitter. One wrote: "Her sad wittle face literally breaks me into piece." Another added: "This is so sad. I'm sorry. I wonder if you can contact a shelter? There may be puppies who need a mama."
