****Pls if u have an obedient/controllable pet, use a break away neck collar instead.*****

About an hour ago, my sister called me that her best friend’s frenchie, Zara, who I trained as a puppy just died.

Zara is only 3 yrs old. Her body leash got stuck in the elevator.

This didn’t have to happen and was nothing but a freak accident. Nothing the owner could’ve done to have prevented this. Frenchies are not recommended to be in a neck collar...and so her body collar would’ve been hard to access during the accident coz the clips were located on the back for easy access to humans but the worse place to be in if snagged by an elevator.

My family is so close to her that on my bday last year the owner allowed Zara to come stay with us on a weekend get away.

Zara is the reason why I have my two cats right now. She showed me how lovely it is to have a pet. She would happily hop on the car if u ask her to go and will get in her travel carrier on her own after her training is done with me coz she misses her owner already and would love to go home. She would look at the window to indicate to her owner she wants to go potty.

Her owner is the most dedicated and loving dog person I know. This dog is her life and she does not skimp out on her ever.

Please hug your pets for me.

I shared this with Zara’s owner and she is very touched and gave her a bit of a break. Thank u all for the support I know she’s not my pet but it’s amazing how a pet can touch so many lives. Thank u for all your replies - each one helps.
