Nothing can ever prepare you for the loss of a dog. For those who have never had a dog, it might be hard to understand the loss.

The famous pooch starred in the 2012 Olympic ceremony, as he led the way for both Daniel Craig, in the role of James Bond, and the Queen herself when the pair made their way from the palace to the a helicopter.
