Bear loves his mom Madison Szekeres more than anything. And she loves him. When 6-year-old black Lab passed away unexpectedly, Szekeres paid tribute to the good boy in a way that could go on forever – tattooing Bear’s nose.
“I chose to do his nose because his paw prints are really big,” Szekeres told The Dodo. “I don’t think I’ve seen many people with their dog nose prints, it always reminds me of him.”
Szekeres had a colleague make ink prints of the bear’s paw and nose.
“I decided to dedicate my tattoo to my wrist [the print] His nose,” says Sekrese. “He’s the happiest, most outgoing puppy who hasn’t found someone he doesn’t love. His tail never wagged. “
The Szekeres’ mum surprised the whole family in 2015 when they brought them adorable bear cubs.
“He was very shy and didn’t know how to leash,” Szekeres said. “He is the most family-oriented and happiest dog we could ask for. There will never be another like him.”
Bell suddenly lost his life after an emergency operation. Szekeres wasn’t ready to lose her beloved dog.
“I went to work on Tuesday and planned to bring the fluid home for him,” Szkeres said. “Bear tragically passed away unexpectedly at home.”
“Bear will always be the best boy ever,” Szekeres said. “We will never forget the unconditional love he gave our family and the happiness he was able to bring to people.”
The tattoo on the bear’s nose will forever remind the Szekeres of their shared bond.
“Even though he left us too early, the way he came here and served his purpose exceeded what we could have asked of him,” Szekeres said. “We thank him for giving our family the best six years. “
