This is Rebecca Hernandez and her high school sweetheart, Frankie. The couple began dating when they were teenagers and got married in 2012 after Rebecca finished college.

Frankie is in the Marines, so the couple moved out of their home state of Texas soon after they got married. They also adopted a puppy, Apollo, when he was a month old.

Hernandez told BuzzFeed News that her pup “had us on our toes since day one.”

“[He is] always doing something he wasn’t supposed to and constantly destroying anything we ever bought him,” she said. “But he is extremely loving and really spoiled by everyone in his life.”

However, the couple soon started having problems. Rebecca said they were “both at fault” for the issues, adding that they “were babies who got married young.”

“It’s been rocky,” she said. “We’ve had a lot of growing up to do. We still get sentimental when we speak because we will always love each other.”

The couple has now been separated for two years, though neither of them has yet filed for divorce. Rebecca took Apollo with her after they split, but Frankie is still a part of his life.

“When [Frankie] comes down to visit his family he will sometimes come and visit [Apollo],” Rebecca said. “Apollo goes crazy for him.”

Frankie also sends Apollo gifts on his birthday. For his recent birthday, he sent the pup a Petco gift card.

He also sent the pup an adorable card and wrote a super sweet (and long!) message.

He ended the card with “Continue to be there for her like you were for me.” ?
