Being with your friend during big moments in their life is a gift and isn’t something most would pass up for any reason. Charlie, a black lab mix, and his owner Kelly O’Connell had been through many important moments during the 15 years they had together. Kelly had adopted Charlie when he was only 12-weeks old.

Charlie had been found abandoned in a shopping cart. One of Charlie’s last acts was to be there for Kelly on her wedding day. Kelly got married earlier this month in Colorado to James Garvin. O’Connell and Garvin are both veterinarians and wanted Charlie to be at their wedding, but many people didn’t think Charlie would make it.

Charlie had been diagnosed with a brain tumor, his body was weak and frail. On the big day, Charlie was too weak to walk down the aisle on his own, so one of Kelly’s younger sister and maid of honor carried him.


No one wanted to leave him behind. The moving moment was captured by photographer and family friend, Jen Dziuvenis. Dziuvenis said everyone in attendance was struggling to hold it together. She added that it touched everyone and was the most moving things she had even witnessed.

Charlie meant the world to Kelly. Kelly was seen petting and kissing Charlie later. Dziuvenis said that what they did was what anyone would have done for a sick (human) family member. A little over a week after the ceremony, Charlie passed. Charlie left behind a legacy of love, and he won’t be forgotten.
