Healthy Dog Put Down Due to Dying Wish

This was making WORLD WIDE news so we knew that we had to talk about this…

A community in Terre Haute is up in arms after the family of a recently deceased blind woman killed her healthy guide dog so he could be buried alongside her.

The woman died of cancer on March 8 and after telling her children that she wanted her loyal Labrador, to be buried along with her. However, the dog was a healthy 5-year-old dog.

To fulfill his mother’s wish, her son put the dog down and buried the animal with his mother a few days after her death. Andy began to receive death threats from the town as well as members of his own family.

A veterinary assistant at the local animal Hospital said, “the neighborhood was really angry. People were saying they should burn in hell.”

Sadly, this is not the first time this has happened.

Where do you stand on this?

  1. I am a dog lover, in fact I work at an animal shelter. I also have children…that said Milo is a dangerous animal and needs to be put down. There are too many good dogs who’s lives are wasting away “behind bars” for dogs like Milo to exist. I’m also certain the 16 yr old that was bitten the 2nd time is the owner’s daughter…these people should stick with owning goldfish and not get another dog unless it is stuffed!

    Thanks!
