He Re-created This Old Photo With His Dog to Say Goodbye

Gordon Delacroix and Birdy have packed in more than 15 years of adventures together. These pictures say everything.


Gordon Delacroix and his dog, Birdy, have a long history together — they have been a part of each other’s lives for more than 15 years.

Five years ago, Delacroix came across a old picture of the two of them taken in 2001. He decided to re-create the same scene, standing in front of his grandmother’s house, holding his not-so-small-anymore dog. Delacroix even managed to find the same sweater that he had been wearing in the original snapshot.

Recently, Birdy was diagnosed with cancer. And again Delacroix re-created that original image.

The sentimental photos, depicting Delacroix at 15, 25 and 30 years old, have been viewed nearly 2.5 million times.
