Groomer Surprises Owners With Video Tribute of Their Late Dog: ‘Crying’

A dog owner who lost his beloved pet earlier this year was surprised with a memorial video of his dog, after his groomer compiled footage from his dates.

Vanessa De Prophetis, who runs Perfect Pooches from her home in Niagara Falls, Canada, shares clips of her four-legged clients on her TikTok and YouTube page, @girlwithedogs.

De Prophetis uploaded a clip last week, but it differed from its usual content as it was a tribute video to the late Tucker.

In addition to sharing it on his channel, the groomer sent the clip to his grieving owners.

The video shows Tucker receiving his usual grooming treatment, as De Prophetis said in voiceover: “Sadly, Tucker’s owners lost him in August. But what they don’t know is that I made a memorial video for them.

“He was a 13 year old Shih Tzu, whom I saw every six weeks. He always arrived as my first dog of the day, so he and I spent some time with us.

“He was the best of boys, and he never failed to sing me his people’s song while brushing. Thanks for waking up in the morning, Tucker.”

In the footage, Tucker can be heard making a sound somewhere between a growl and a moan.

De Prophetis continued, “He always had the same hairstyle, I lowered his body in three and three quarters, and I lowered the top of the head in a comb of five to eight inches. I shave him. the pads and he wasn’t the biggest fan of his nail clippers.

“He had the perfect little Shih Tzu face, which I would tuck away in a round fluff ball. I tidy his ears and then spray him in our jelly cologne. Tucker will be forever missed.”

It cuts to show the owners, a man and a woman, as they watch the video with a smile on their face.

“It’s so good,” says one, while the other goes into ecstasy: “It’s perfect. “

The clip, released on December 14, has racked up more than 200,000 views on YouTube, as other dog owners were also moved by the memorial.

Nailah commented, “I am sitting here with my 12 year old Shih Tzu crying. What a lovely gesture from you, you can see the joy it has brought them.”

LB said, “You can see the love on Tucker’s parents’ faces as they watched this video. Such a sweet memorial.”

Emily raved, “That’s so sweet. What a nice thing for the owners to do!”

Alexandria Mitchell admitted, “I wasn’t planning on being touched today. How kind of you !!”

While Trevor Moses added, “God bless you for doing this for the little dog and his family.”

Although they are man’s best friend, dogs are unfortunately not around all of our lives. The lifespan of dogs varies among breeds, with animals living around 11 years.

According to the PetMD.com website, a Shih Tzu lives about 13 years, other breeds, like a Great Dane, only live an average of seven years, while a Miniature Poodle can live to be 14 years old.

“We can handle the damage and other transient aggravations; it’s the undeniable fact that people live longer than dogs that end up making most owners cry,” they noted.

News week contacted De Prophetis for comment.
