In his will he wrote that he wanted to be buried with his dog and when he died his last wish was satisfied.His faithful life partner, despite enjoying excellent health, was suppressed to be buried together with his deceased owner.
A crazy and absurd story, which comes from Richmond (Virginia, USA) and which makes animalists cry out to horror, but not only them.
Shih Tzu Emma, this is the name of the animal, was killed on a whim and the attempt of the Chesterfield County Animal Service – the shelter for animals where the dog had been brought – was useless to stop the killing.
Apparently, the suggestion of giving it up for adoption, was too sensible and full of humanity to be taken into consideration. And the little dog was killed, cremated and then placed in an urn in the grave of his deceased owner!
