The tomb of an 80-year-old canine
Zach Medlin, a young man, had taken his lovely puppy to the Kiroli park when he unexpectedly spotted a square stone buried beneath the foliage.
He started to stir the leaves because he was so intrigued to see what it was. It was discovered that this was a dog’s tomb. The text read: „Buddie, 1928–1941.“ „Born a dog/Dying a gentleman.“
From this affecting engraving Zack concluded that the dog had deserved appreciation and honour. Maybe he was so faithful and devoted.
There is a local legend about the buried pet. It tells that this park was a camp for the Boy Scouts. Once a guy was drowning in the lake when the smart dog noticed and began to bark warning the scouts who saved the boy.
Another information indicates that the dog belonged to Ms. Albert Jones‘ family and that his wife enjoyed taking the animal for walks in the park.
No matter what the exact story was, it is undeniably true that Buddie was a unique individual who received accolades from his teachers. The tribute attests to his devoted and kind nature.
