A Family Turned Their Dead Dog into a Bearskin Rug
An Australian family's golden retriever passed away after a long, happy life. And they had him turned into a BEARSKIN RUG.
A taxidermy place near Melbourne posted a video of the finished product on Instagram the other day. They said the family wanted him "preserved as a pelt," and that he was, quote, "finally ready to head home."
To be fair, it's almost like having the dog there with you. His fur is soft, and you can still pet it. But also it's your dog as a RUG. That's a little different than doing it with a bear you had no emotional connection to.
The reaction in the comments has been mixed. There were some positive comments early, mostly from other customers who follow the place online. Some of the more recent comments haven't been so supportive. (Daily Star)
