There’s nothing like the pain of losing a beloved pet. Your four-legged pal is with you through thick and thin and the heartbreak of their passing is all too real. That's why this latest tale struck a chord with dog owners everywhere.

A beloved pup

Little Sunny was a much-loved Jack Russell Terrier. The 14-year-old pup had recently begun to experience health problems and sadly passed away from a seizure while en route to the vets.

He’d been a huge part of 19-year-old Lucy Ledgeway’s life for the past 15 years so the loss was accute.

In a bid to ease her pain, Lucy's boyfriend drove her to a spot where she regularly walked Sunny. But, when Lucy looked up, she was amazed at what she saw.

A magical sight

There, in the sky, directly above her head, was a cloud formation that was identical to little Sunny.

The cloud really is quite uncanny with the shape of Sunny’s face and fluffy ears and darker clouds where her eyes and nose should be, you can see why Lucy was gobsmacked to see the sight.

Lucy told the Daily Mail,

‘After seeing Sunny in the sky I felt a warmth. It was her way of telling us that she is OK.’

Of course, many will put this down to pure coincidence but, as dog lovers, we can only imagine how magical and reassuring seeing this must have felt.
