We had a guy blow off some fingers throwing fireworks mortar rounds in back yard. Dog ate them after his brother picked up and put on patio table.

we found an elderly man and his dog dead in his apartment several years ago, he had a lot of health issues and evidently had a heart attack and fell, hitting his head on the counter on his way down. his face was half eaten off by the dog, best we could tell the dog started licking the blood from the wound and just kept on going. we never really figured out why the dog died, he had only been in there for 3 days.

My brother told me a story of a call they got. A elderly guy that had died in his trailer. He was in there for some time. Neighbors had called, Everybody pretty much knew the fella had died from the smell at the door and flies on the window.. They broke In, handed the two little dogs to the neighbor that was waiting outside. Neighbor started hugging the little dogs and allowing them to lick her all in the face. Once my brother and his partners got closer to the body they noticed the gentleman had parts missing that the two little dogs had eaten off!

As a follow up question:

Say your family went out of town but you stayed home and somehow died with your dog in the house. Your family returns to find you dead and your dog has eaten some of you.

Would your family keep the dog or have it put down?

Would it be weird having a dog running around your house you knew had eaten one of your family members?

As a funeral director here in this great state, I've seen some wild stuff. I just graduated funeral college when I was sent to get a little old lady that passed in her front yard in Houston one morning. As I walk up to the house with a little white picket fence, two HPD officers looked at me and said get ready. They had a little white fluffy dog tied up to the front porch, with a red face. The body was covered with a sheet. I pulled the sheet back and her whole face was gone. I mean gone, with her eyes wide open, because she didn't have any eyelids, lips, cheeks, ears, and all meat. Her skull was red, with her eyes staring up. It looked like something straight out of a horror flick. The dog was just as happy as it could be, wagging it's tail and being rambunctious. He must have gotten his revenge. I still see that face after 30 years.

the instinct to not waste "food" which would be the meat from us would absolutely drive (I assume) most dogs to eat their owner if they were deceased

Iím not sure how long it was alive before he was found. Soon as he was found he was put down. And very soon after I put my dog down.

I’ve worked several of these.

The most recent the dog lived for about a month after the owner died....basically until the water company shut off the water and the toilets dried up so the pup died of dehydration.

**** dog crapped little parts and parts of its owner all over the house.

Total gut of the interior down to the studs, including the air ducts and hvac system was the only way to get rid of both the smell of human and meat poop

Yep. If I was homeless drifter I'd carry around a lot of leashes with me too. Every town has stray cats and dogs. If I was bad off enough to ask for money I dadgum sure wouldn't be wasting it on food from the store or fast food restaurants. I'd have me a whole sled dog team pulling me down the side of the highway in a wagon. Meals and wheels.....

I know that sounds amusing and a little sick. But I'm being 100% serious. If I have to choose between my life or any living thing on this earth,it ain't gonna be me that has to go.

Usually dogs will wait until they are really hungry but cats donít wait that long at all. Cats know that you are bigger than them and humans could easily kill them but they always want you to die!
Ask some first responders about stories of cats eating people during well checks. You wouldnít have a cat in the house if you listened to some of their stories!

OK I’m gonna tell story that is gospel truth but I still have a hard time believing. My wife’s uncle suffered from neuropathy. He had no feeling in his feet. He was a plumber. One day he was walking on a job site stepped on a nail and nailed the boot to his foot. He had a housekeeper that didn’t speak any English. When he got home and figured not it this happened, he told her to get him some hot water in a pan. So she goes and boils some water and puts it by his chair. He comes back and sticks his foot in it. Doesn’t feel it cooking I guess. Anyway he cooked his foot. So then he goes to the hospital and they peel off all the cooked foot and do whatever they do to try and fix it. He comes home, falls asleep in his chair. Wakes up and his two Pomeranians have been chewing on his freaking holey cooked foot and he didn’t know because he has no feeling. So... back to the hospital. Gets super infected. Amputate the foot, then the leg, and I’m no doctor and don’t understand but somehow his other leg gets screwed up and he ends up with no legs from the knees down. How screwed up is that?!?!?!!!
