What?! Woman Spends Over N1.8m To Bury Her Late Dog (Photos)

A 37-year-old dog owner identified as Sasha Smajic, has spent over £4000 (N1,872,480) on giving her late dog, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier named Captain, a lavish funeral.

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, Hertfordshire.

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.”
