Older people find comfort and belongingness with their dogs. But how do older people deal with the ordeal of losing their dog?
This 68-year-old grandfather from Seattle just experienced losing his dog after three unknown individuals took his bulldog. The incident happened when Albert Boogard went out of their house to walk his dog. His stepdaughter, Andrea Naylor, joined him.
The reason why his stepdaughter joined Albert is that he has Parkinson’s disease. In a later interview, Albert narrated how the strangers took his beloved pooch.
While walking one afternoon in August, a white car stopped in front of them and took the dog from Albert’s possession. What Albert recalled is that the strangers are one man and two women.
He added that it was the guy who first went out of the car. The guy then suddenly grabbed Albert and hug him from behind. When Albert tried to fight back and face the guy, the guy hit him behind the ears.
During this time, the two women had enough time to snatch the dog from Albert. The dog’s name is Quavo, and according to Albert, the dog originally belonged to his late wife.
After the incident, Albert and his stepdaughter filed a complaint. They also asked around if ever anyone saw the incident.
For their part, the local police where Albert filed his complaint immediately acted. They tried to track Quavo’s whereabouts from the leads they received from different people.
To the detectives’ surprise, they found Quavo running at a neighborhood in Crown Hill area just near Seattle. They brought the dog to their police station to make sure that the dog was indeed the missing Quavo.
The detectives then prompted Albert about the development. The older man immediately went to the police station and positively identified Quavo.
Albert is all praise to the detectives who helped him with his ordeal. The old man could not take the detectives enough for their hard work.
