Posted by Mateja Lane

Saying goodbye is never easy, but now with social media, everyone can mourn with you. 

An Imgur user uploaded the last day with her old dog, Hannah, and it has quickly gone viral.

Hannah and her family had a wonderful last day, starting with an aromatherapy bath.

And as spritely as Hannah seemed, she had been having serious seizures for months that made it hard for her to walk. She was on lots of different medications for her kidneys and the arthritis in her elbows and hips.

Hannah's family knew it was time for a gently passing.

Hannah's owner knew what she had to do to help Hannah have a peaceful ending to a wonderful life.

"...I decided to give her one last hoo-rah day of pampering, like the queen she's always been, and let her go. Where there would be no pain, no seizures, no whimpering in the night. Just peace and hopefully love. <3"
