Callaghan said that she and her loved ones had seen the message as “a sign from doggie heaven.” And it came as a comfort to the family who believed it meant that Bandit was in a better place. “The bowl was a sign that he’s happy. We even thought the smile looked like his. It was a God wink,” she added.
The phenomenon impressed her so much that she decided to share an image of the water bowl on Twitter. “So my 15-year-old dog passed away two days ago. My mom found his bowl like this tonight,” the animal-lover explained alongside the picture. “Doggie heaven does exist. Love you Bandit.”
