This Vine clip will break your heart in just six seconds.

The bittersweet clip features a beautiful dog, laying against a gravestone and apparently sobbing. And, while it proves that love lasts forever, it is definitely one of the saddest things we've ever seen.

Watch it below:

It's even worse with those doggy sobbing noises, isn't it?

The uploader, whose grandmother’s grave the film was shot at, has revealed the story behind the clip, which features his wolf-dog Wiley:

“To add some clarification: I am not a vet so I can’t say if he’s reverse sneezing as some of you are stating. I can tell you that he has never done that before and hasn’t done it since. I may be anthropomorphosizing his actions but it’s how I’m choosing to deal with loss, so deal with it.

"Wiley is a therapy wolf-dog who is used to help veterans returning from war with PTSD. He provides therapy and care through Lockwood Animal Rescue Center and a program called Warriors and Wolves.

"They have many other wolves/wolf dogs that they’ve rescued and they provide a truly unique and valuable service. If you’d like to check out more about Wiley and the work he does please visit this site www.lockwoodarc.org.”

He added: "Also, for those stating he is dying, I promise he's not. We have a veterinarian on staff at the sanctuary and Wiley is just fine. Peace and love peeps."
