Animals make such wonderful companions. They can especially be wonderful company for elderly people who might be lonely and in need of a buddy. That is why it is extra heartbreaking to see someone in such a position have their pet go missing.
Unfortunately, one grandmother, Philomena Boenke, suffered the gut-wrenching ordeal of losing her 16-year-old Chihuahua-Yorkshire Terrier mix, Brandy.
According to a Facebook group dedicated to finding the dog, the 81-year-old grandma lost her pet after her 59-year-old son, Tony, took the little Chihuahua mix on a walk in October 2020.
