For some of us, animals are just animals, but for some, they are like a family member who understands us better than anyone.
The hardest part about being a dog owner is that you have to say goodbye to them one day.
A woman that was going through the loss of her pet dog was fired from her job because she took a day off.
Yes, a day off.
Emma McNulty, the woman that we are talking about, had to part ways from Milly, her pet dog, after parenting her for 14 years.
Emma was devastated and heartbroken when Milly passed away.
She was supposed to be working that afternoon at a local store in Scotland, her country, and was shocked when she heard what her boss thought about the death of her dog.
Emma wrote a detailed message to her boss explaining how much Milly was significant to her.
She also said that she took care of the dog for 14 years and it was just like losing a family member when the dog passed away.
However, the boss of Emma thought that she was just overreacting on the death of her pet dog.
Instead of understanding, the boss of Emma told her that she will be facing disciplinary action if she fails to find a replacement for her shift and if she does not show up.
The woman did her best to find a replacement, but she failed.
After failing, Emma decided to send an email to her boss and tell her how she feels about how the situation was handled.
In the email, Emma wrote:
I think it’s disgusting how some companies think it’s acceptable to treat someone in this way with no remorse, as a family pet has just as much importance as a human family member.
Emma was then fired from her job.
Now, Emma wants to change the way how companies view pets and what people go through when their pets pass away.
