For the past six years, Anna Halcin and her dog Sebastian have been inseparable friends. They went through a lot together, always supported each other, were a real family.
“He was special to me, and always will be, we were absolutely best friends.”,- Halcin said.
To show his love for his owner, Sebastian even made a sweet gesture. At any time he could walk up to the girl and gently hug her hand. They had a very strong bond.
“He loved giving my arm a hug,” Halcin said.
Unfortunately, Sebastian passed away. The owner took the loss very badly, but in the midst of her grief, she found a way to make the dog a part of herself forever.
“I wanted something that was always with me, no matter what, and a tattoo seemed just perfect,” Halcin said.
Now Sebastian is gone, but his soul is still with his owner – in her heart and on her arm. The tattoo with the dog makes the girl happy, comforting her when she needs it most.
After Halcin shared the body art with a pet loss support group online, it led to an outpouring of well-wishes and applause — for both the tattoo and the sweet little dog who inspired it.
“So many people messaged me after that, showing me the pictures of their similar-looking dogs, and I see him in each one of them,” Halcin said. “I like to think it’s him saying, ‘Hi, Mama,’ each time.”
