Losing a pet is never easy, but remembering our beloved critters doesn't necessarily have to be a sad thing!
One pet owner proved this by leaving a heartwarming tribute to their furry friend Phoebe!
Instead of mourning the loss of their precious pooch, the anonymous dog-lover honored her with a bucket of tennis balls for everyone to enjoy as well as a message that read:

Can we get a woof, woof? New research has found that a man's best friend may be his heart's best bet too!
A study published in the American Journal of Cardiology suggests people with chronic diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol who own pets have healthier hearts then those with the same conditions who don't own pets.
After monitoring the changing heart rates of 191 people between the ages of 60 and 80 over a 24-hour period, researchers found those with a pet had higher heart rate variability than those who didn't.
