The relationship between a dog and their owner is the most special one. They are there for each other, in sickness, grief or good times. Losing a pet is one of the most challenging experiences of anyone's life. It is difficult to let go of someone who has been by your side through everything. Mackenzie—who goes by @mackenzie.seton on TikTok—shows us how difficult that grief is to deal with. In the video, soft guitar strings are being played in the background and the song goes like this, "I think of you all the time now that you're gone." She can be seen giving a chocolate to her dog sitting inside the car's trunk.

The text overlay reads, "Because no dog should go to heaven not knowing how chocolate tastes." The video is captioned, "I miss my best friend." The song evokes the pain that these dog owners feel after losing their pets. People who follow Mackenzie could understand what she must have gone through after her pet passed away. @saucebest1 commented, “For us dogs are just a chapter, but for them, we’re their whole story.” @tangobird wrote, “I gave my girl a 10 piece and a McDouble on the ride to the vet and it didn’t seem like a grand enough gesture to repay her for the years of comfort and companionship.” @buildingalewis said, “I worked as a vet tech for 5 years and my favorite was grabbing a brownie off the break room table for them. Hugs to you as you go through this extremely hard time.”

In a trend that has been gaining traction, a woman—who goes by @Millie_Archie on TikTok—posted a slideshow of pictures with her dog Rooster, with that same music in the background. It starts with a picture of her and the dog and it is captioned, “I want this one.” The next one is a picture of Rooster and the overlay text reads, “Really? But I’m old and lumpy and blind. I may not have much time left.” In the next picture of her and Rooster, she responds, “I don’t care, I adore you.” She then narrates how he enjoyed being part of her life. She writes how he loved having his own bed and how he loved playing with his sister Bailey and sharing his meals.

It ends with Millie and Rooster’s picture with the overlay text, “But I think I love my mom the most. I hope she knows. She’s loved me more than anyone ever has.” After 28 days of being with her, Rooster had stomach swelling and had to be rushed to the hospital where he passed away. One of the last slides reads, “It was time for us to say goodbye. I know my mom is sad but I wish she knew these were the best 28 days of my life.” @spamig46 commented, “The Best 28 days. You all can’t be doing this.”@wordofwarning wrote, “I knew what would happen, still watched, still cried.” @just_jsxx.xx shared, “I am actually crying, ‘the best 28 days’ hurts.”

The song that is being used in these videos is called “Someday I’ll Get It” which is sung by musician Alek Olsen. The song is a part of his album with the same name. Viewers are divided on the fact that this song is being used by people for their dead pets. @calvero_sings talks about it in one of his videos. “It’s just the dead dog song forever, and you’re the dead dog guy,” he said. @kikicyc commented, “I see videos of people crying in silence with that song.” @nighttype wrote, “I think if the song was meant to be sad or convey loss and people chose it with their most believed animal that passed. I’d believe I did a good job.”
