Man Recreates a Picture of Himself and His Dog at Ten and Fifteen Years After the Original Was Taken

10 and 15

Redditor Gordondel posted a really touching photo that shows him in a blue sweatshirt holding his black lab puppy in front of his grandmother’s house, recreated the exact same shot (and same sweatshirt) ten years later and then at fifteen years later. What the series shows is how much both of them have grown over the years and how much of each others’ lives the two have been. Unfortunately, the dog has been ill as of late.

…I thought last weekend was his last, he’s back to his “normal self” now but after several tests it still might be cancer. So it could be 6 months, it could be 2 weeks. …We’ve had a ton of good times, unfortunately for all of us at some point it’ll be time to go.
