Nothing is more painful for a mother than the death of a child; mothers are overprotective in the animal world, just as they are in human women. Bettie, a dog, went through a very painful moment when one of her puppies died, and after hours of trying to revive him, she realized she couldn’t do it anymore and let him go. According to her owner, the poor dog went to bury the lifeless puppy’s body by herself, a sad scene that was captured on video.
Owner Lenny Rose Ellema, whose dog Bettie can be seen burying her dead puppy and covering everything with it in a video that was released in September 2020 when Bettie was four years old: Rose from Pangasinan province, Philippines, told the media outlet Diario Sevilla that her four-year-old dog had lost her newborn puppy and that she felt compelled to care for him out of maternal instinct because she had experienced the same thing a year earlier when one of her previous puppies died during delivery.
He also stated that she was a very special dog because her owners did not teach her to do so; rather, it was instinctive. Bettie was heartbroken, and the canine can be seen throwing dirt into the hole with her child, protecting him even in death.
This action is moving, as well as tragic, since it seems that he wanted to protect him from the outside and give him a holy burial. However, some experts say they do so out of instinct , to prevent predators from being attracted to the carcass and endangering the entire litter.
It’s heartbreaking to see this video, which has over 14 thousand views, of a dog burying one of her beloved babies. According to other videos uploaded by the same user, the canine was fine months later.
