Emotional: Nigerian Man Has Been Left Heartbroken After He Decided To Put 14-Year-Old Dog Out Of Its Misery To Avoid It Being ‘Turned Into A Pot Of Pepper Soup’
Some people become so attached to their dogs that they literally become a part of the family. A Nigerian man has been left heartbroken after he decided to put 14-year-old dog out of its misery to avoid it being ‘turned into a pot of pepper soup’ .
According to the person who shared the post on Facebook, Esema Aguse, it was a choice of having to watch the dog suffer a slow, miserable death, kill him kindly or even give the dog over to dog-eaters and it’s used to prepare a pot of pepper soup. He eventually decided to put his dog down and got a police vet doctor to execute in the most gentle way.
Read what he wrote below:
“The saddest part about owning a dog is when it is time to say goodbye.
At 14, a dog is 90 in human age — and the dog owner must make a hard choice:
Hand him over to dog-eaters so that even in death, it would still serve a purpose for the living, as someone suggested, or watch him suffer a slow, miserable death — or kill him kindly.
For Ceaser, when we looked at each other a last time a short while ago, both of us knew he won’t suffer falling sight, running nose, hair loss before he dies or be turned into a pot of pepper soup for some dipsomaniacs and football pool stakers to merry over.
The good murderer, a police vet doctor, was professional.
First, Old Friend was sedated — then euthanized.
In all, it took no more than 30 minutes.
He was buried without prayers, without wash, without clothe, an atheist in death.
A friend, faithful and just, he has been — and if Sugarcandy Mountain were real, he would walk through its gate with ease.
