Could this be the cutest thing to emerge on the internet this year?
An image of a child who conducted his own memorial for his turtle is making waves online with more than one million views on image-sharing website Imgur.
It's never easy to lose a pet and this child took the death of his turtle particularly hard. So he took it upon himself to conduct a funeral, all by himself.
According to his cousin, who uploaded the image, the boy constructed his own cross, dug a grave and dressed formally to attend a solo funeral for his beloved pet turtle - all without his parents knowing.
One Reddit user commented: "I have two young sons of my own, and I know how deeply they feel and how much they struggle to express their feelings. I think your little cousin is a fine young man with a big heart who just wants the world to acknowledge the feelings he had for his turtle. He's a good lad. Give him a hug."
