Does anyone know if they lady had family?! I'm trying to get in touch with them regarding helping them out with the dog! The council won't 'remove' the body until next week! I don't want to remove it & upset anyone! I just don't think it's right that the poor baby has been left there for people to see! Xx

Hi Dee, just wanted to reassure you that the dog - 'Patch' has been buried by his co owner (Carol's de facto partner). Mr M, was away at work at the time of the tragedy.

What a kind lady you are Dee the only thing I can suggest if you can is to cover the poor dog with a blanket towel etc.
