Woman spends N1.8m to bury her dog

Spread the love

A dog owner, Sasha Smajic, 37, spent over £4000 ( N1, 872, 480) on
giving her late dog, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier named Captain, a
lavish funeral, Metro UK has reported.

Smajic said, Captain, who was eleven years old deserved the same
respect as any family member. Captain died on Christmas Day after
suffering a cardiac arrest on the operating table.

Smajic said she didn’t eat for a week after his death. In total, she
spent £4,249 on the funeral, including £225 on a dove release and
another £620 on getting his name written in flowers.

The dog owner said, “I don’t think I’ll ever celebrate another
Christmas. I don’t think I would ever have the strength to do that. A
piece of me has gone.”

Captain’s body was taken from the vets in a horse-drawn carriage to a
park where he used to go for walks. His coffin was then transferred to
a hearse for the 40-minute drive to Willow Haven Cemetery in Bedmond,

Cemetery owner Maureen Beach read a poem at Captain’s graveside with
11 doves one for each year of his life – being released at 2pm during
the service after he was lowered into the ground.

Afterwards, Sasha went to the pub where she put a plate of chicken and
chips on the table “as that is what he would have had”.

Sasha said, “Captain deserved a special send off. For some people he
was a dog, to me he was my baby – he was everything to me and always
will be.”
