Heartbroken Dog Who Refused to Eat for 10 Days After Losing Her Guardian Says One Last Goodbye.

Published

“This photograph captures a special moment between a man, his wife and their best friend. She had recently lost her dear husband to a sudden heart attack and wanted to see him one last time to say goodbye. When Andy passed away at home their dog of 13 years, Sadie, would not leave his side. After his death, she showed signs of depression, would not eat and waited for him to come home everyday. His wife expressed the need for Sadie to be there. I agreed and we planned to have her attend.

The day of the service Sadie’s mood like everybody else’s was suitably subdued. Like she could sense at least the energy of the people around her. At the end of the service Julia brought Sadie into the chapel so they could both pay their respect. Sadie approached slowly but without hesitation or fear. The guests were all affected by seeing Sadie; knowing what she meant to Andy. Not a dry eye in the house.

Sadie did not have to be coaxed or forced to jump her front paws up to the casket. I knew as it was unfolding it was a special moment. A moment that Julia may not have been able to take in fully. Taking meaningful pictures and videos at funerals has been a practice for decades. This was no different. For Julia to see this photo after would bring her comfort and would be one of the tools she needed for the grieving process. Grief can dull the senses and impede the ability to remember details like this. Photos help and allow others not present to share in what happened.

Sadie calmly stepped down and walked out. After 10 days of not eating and 10lbs of weight loss, Sadie walked into her home again after the service and ate her first meal. The outpouring of support and grief has been much greater for Sadie’s loss than I have ever come close to seeing for an actual widow in nearly 25 years of funeral service. Animals feel and sense emotion. They suffer separation and loss not unlike humans.

This picture screams ‘man’s best friend.’ more than a thousand photos of the family dog chasing a ball or swimming in the local lake.

Perhaps more than any photo or experience with the family dog this one speaks volumes about the deep connections we have with our pets. Everyone in the room saw a level of expression from a canine that was as human as our own. Maybe more for at this funeral everybody present knew there were, with the exception of Julia, only a few guests more deserving of the right to pay their respect that day than Sadie.”

Huge Python Slithers Down Bathroom Light Just As Kids Were Brushing Their Teeth

A five- foot long python slithered out of a bathroom light as two children brushed their teeth before going to bed. The chilling incident happened at a home in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

The horrified family immediately called a snake catcher, Bryce Lockett, to remove the snake which was now hanging from the ceiling.

Lockett revealed that the children were quite shaken up but he was able to remove the snake and he eventually released it into a nearby creek after removing it from the home.

“I’ve been catching snakes for about seven years now, I’ve seen them all in various situations. People are generally quite terrified of them but I’ve owned snakes my whole life so I’m not too fazed” Lockett said.

He further added that in Australia as many as one in three individuals have snakes hidden in their residences, but very few slither down light bulbs into households.

“Carpet pythons are nocturnal and coldblooded, which is why this one must have slithered down to enjoy the heat of the lamp – they’re harmless but they don’t like to be disturbed.” Lockett explained.

There was no word as to whether or not the kids could go to bed without getting nightmares after the incident.

Dog Was Surrendered To Shelter With 2 Garbage Bags Full Of His Bed And All His Toys

A dog named Wall-E, from the hit Disney movie, was first adopted from Maricopa County Animal Care and Control (MCACC) back in 2015.

Everyone was happy and thought that Wall-E had found his forever family and home. Unfortunately, that was not the case. The poor dog was returned to the same shelter three years later. With him, Wall-E had two garbage bags that carried his bed and all his toys.

The shelter explained in a post that the family’s decision to return the dog was a hard one, and that the family members were heartbroken and in tears when they dropped him off.

“This guy deserves a forever family who won’t give up on him. Please don’t bash his previous owners though. We don’t know the whole story. What we do know is the owner was heartbroken and crying. It was hard to finally help them leave. The staff was crying with the owners. We don’t believe this decision was taken lightly.”

“He was surrendered by his family because they did not have enough time for him. He was very scared. In his kennel, he would bark and bark.” Jordan Bader, the manager of the shelter’s Facebook page, told The Dodo.

The shelter posted a picture of Wall-E with his belongings on their Facebook page with a plea for a new home for the poor dog. The heartbreaking picture went viral.

“Here is Wall-E when he was getting surrendered by his owner. They brought all his stuff.. like it was gonna be there with him 2 months later in his kennel.” The staff wrote on the picture.

Two months after the picture was posted, a woman, named Lynn Lee, saw the post and heard about Wall-E’s story.

Lynn Lee made her way to the shelter and met the viral star. She fell in love with Wall-E instantly and decided to adopt him immediately.
