Like a bad episode of The Twilight Zone, an act that was supposed to bring peace and closure to a grieving family went horribly wrongl. Fluffy’s not buried in Fluffy’s tomb…something else is.
A 70-pound pit bull was part of the family for Emmie Teehee.
“She was 11 years old, going on 12,” Teehee said.
But one day at the end of February, Teehee decided to end Faya’s suffering from hip displaysia and had the dog euthanized at the North Texas Humane Society.
She hired the Smoke Rise Farm Pet Cemetery in Azle to cremate her dog. Then on March 2, she said she received a certificate, along with remains in a small, wooden box.
Nearly two months after burying the remains of what she thought was her beloved pet, she got a call from a friend at the Humane Society.
“She said, ‘Emmie, did you ever get Faya’s remains back?’” Teehee recalled. “I said, ‘Yes, I buried them in the flower bed.’ She was like, ‘I don’t know how to tell you this, but Faya’s still in our freezer.’”
