When Ashley Lang’s golden retriever Wagner died, she knew it was coming. He was 12 years old and lived a long, happy life. But when she took a special trip to honor Wagner, something magical happened.
A Special Bond
Ashley and Wagner spent 12 wonderful years together playing in the snow, basking in the sun and romping in the water.
It Was Love At First Sight
Ever since he was a puppy, they shared an unwavering bond. Look at how cute and fluffy he was!
He Was Always Ready To Have Fun
What a silly and incredible companion to share life's best moment's with.
A Long, Happy Life
Golden retrievers like Wagner have a life expectancy of 10 to 12 years. So we know that he really did live his life to the fullest.
But As He Was Aging
Even though Wagner's attitude was still as loving as ever, his body was just getting too old to run and play like he once was able to.
A Last Goodbye
Eventually Wagner passed away and Ashley had her beloved pup's remains cremated. Ashley and a close friend traveled to the park where Wagner loved to play spread his ashes.
As she threw his ashes into the sky, her friend snapped a picture.
Then The Miracle
It wasn't until later when they reviewed the picture that they discovered the ashes had taken shape of a dog leaping up in the air at Ashley.
"It's pretty remarkable…the tail and the legs and he looks like he's, you know, leaping to go up," Ashley shared with CBS Chicago.
His Memory Lives On
"Everyone keeps calling him the angel dog," Ashley said fondly.
She's convinced that what she experienced was Wagner's way of saying goodbye. The cheerful retriever left behind a large number of loved ones, both human and animal in kind.
They Really Are Our Best Friends
Many people underestimate the influence that dogs have on our lives. They understand our feelings, protect us with their lives and pick us up when we're down.
He Will Always Be Happy
We can take comfort that Wagner's spirit was traveling up to Heaven - where all dogs go. Give your dog a hug today for Ashley and Wagner.
