Receiving the news that your most loyal companion will no longer be in this world is such a painful thing to hear and Hardy’s father is trying his best to deal with it.
Franklin Hardy is known for his work as a television screenwriter, working on the series You’re the Worst. However, Hardy gained attention for a story of his father and a dog that he shared on his Twitter account.
It all started when Hardy visited his father’s home in Virginia, USA and found him in the garden, digging a hole.
Hardy asked his father, what is he doing. To his surprise, the father is digging a hole to bury his own beloved pet dog. His father told him that he will need to sacrifice his own pet dog.
It turns out that the vet told Hardy’s father that his pet dog is seriously ill despite its normal appearance, over the phone. But seeing how the vet told this heartbreaking news just over the phone, Hardy tells his father that the vet doesn’t seem professional for doing that, and assures him that he can’t trust someone who says something like that without examining the dog first.
However, his father trusted the vet and believed that his dog will no longer be in this world anytime soon. So he keeps on digging the hole for his pet.
But what surprises many people was how the dog was near Hardy’s father all the time, faithfully watching how its owner is digging its grave.
“It didn’t seem to bother him (the dog). Was a little hard on me though,” said Hardy’s father, sharing how he feels about his dog watching him digging the hole.
Not long after, the vet arrived at their house to euthanize the dog. He examined the dog first before giving it any injection and turns out that it was a false alarm!
The dog is not seriously ill and its health is better than ever.
Fortunately, the grave hole will be left empty!
