Heartbroken Ashton Kutcher puts down his puppy

November 21, 2013 2 min read

This is the heartbreaking moment Ashton Kutcher took his sick pooch to the vet to be put down. The 35-year-old actor had sadness etched on his face as he cradled his bulldog in a coat and made his way into an animal hospital in Los Angeles on Friday. Ashton was supported by his girlfriend Mila Kunis and told photographers his pooch was unwell and they were having to get it put to sleep.

Regardless of your thoughts about these celebs and their careers, our hearts go out to Ashton in this moment. It is not easy for ANYONE to put down a pet. Every member of the BodyRock behind-the-scenes team has at least ONE pet and this just broke our hearts. Our pets provide us with unconditional love and endless smiles (when they're not pooping on the rug). It's not like losing a family member when they pass, it IS losing a family member. Their lives bring us so much joy, but are snuffed out all too soon. Photographer Sarah Ernhart createdwhat she dubbed a 'Joy Session', in which she records owners' last embrace with their pets that are too old to live or have been diagnosed with terminal illnesses.
Final embrace: These special, end-of-life photography sessions are just for terminally ill or elderly pets
"The sessions can be happy at the same time because the owners get to talk about their favorite little quirks and things that they like about their pets. I get this inside view of what these people's lives are like. It's a pretty powerful."
Last moments: The beautiful, yet heartbreaking pictures, are meant to highlight the relationship between pet and owner before they pass

The snapper says she had more than 100 shoots with owners and their pets since she launched the service three years ago.

Mrs Ernhart said: 'The sessions can be happy at the same time because the owners get to talk about their favorite little quirks and things that they like about their pets'

When we bring that new ball of fluff into our lives, very rarely do we think of how little time we have together. And maybe that's for the best; we focus on the joy they bring while they are here. So hug your pets close and return their love the same way they love you; unconditionally. There are very few things in this life that are as simple and as easy as the love we receive from our pets - embrace it.
