Video of Dog Carrying Leash After Brother Dies Leaves Internet 'Bawling'

Dogs are man's best friend, but sometimes a dog's best friend is another dog.

Footage shared by TikTok account The Labraseal shows a black Labrador named Denzel walking beside a similar-looking dog called Casper.

What is so touching about the scene is that Denzel has Casper's leash in his mouth, as if he is taking his friend on a walk.

The sweet clip, which is filmed in Suffolk, United Kingdom, is set to the song "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" by Wham!.

However, the reason why the video has gone viral with more than 11.2 million views is because of its unexpectedly sad ending.

The chirpy '80s song then stops abruptly and the scene cuts to Denzel dragging an empty leash on a path, as it becomes clear that his pal is no longer alive.

In another TikTok video it is revealed that the animal, who was Denzel's older brother, tragically passed away from cancer.

The Labraseal captioned the footage, which can be watched here, writing: "The sad thing about having two dogs, only one of them gets to spend the rest of their life with the other. #rip."

The tear-jerking footage has gained lots of traction online since it was posted on October 17, having gained 3.3 million likes.
