The dead dog, to everybody's surprise, came back to life a day after being buried and reunited with his grieving owners.
We believe Stephen King's Pet Sematary was actually based on a true story because all these animals keep coming back to life. Two sisters from Novonikolsk, Russia, came home to find their 18-year-old beloved pooch lying down lifeless on the floor, unresponsive, and were convinced the doggo was dead. They took their dearest pet to the closest cemetery with his body in a bag and buried him in a grave. But to their surprise, not only the senior dog named Dick was still alive, but he also somehow managed to claw his way up from the grave and dug himself out.
All the digging and walking tired the poor dog and he collapsed on the road, exhausted. According to Epoch Times, two teenage girls spotted the passed out dog and carried him to an animal shelter called Open Your Hearts. The shelter took in Dick with open hands and gave him the necessary veterinary care. It was when they cleaned the dog and shared his pictures on social media the owner noticed that the dog in the pictures is the one she buried the day before.
They contacted each other immediately and the owners were soon reunited with the dog they thought they lost forever. 18-year-old Dick is now well and back to his family and the sisters donated money to the shelter out of joy and thanked them for saving their dog. "We still didn’t have such a dog story. 18 years old, dog Dick survived the death of two of his mistresses, was lost, his car knocked him down and last I hope the adventure is his most sad, he died ... and he was buried, the good thing is that they just covered him with earth and he could get out of the bag, I understand that the fact will cause a storm of emotions, no need to condemn," the shelter elaborated the events.
"Dick is very dear to people as a memory of mother and sister, it turned out what happened... There were tears at the meeting, a confused story about the fate of the dog. And gratitude is not only in words, the women donated five thousand rubles to the orphanage and wished good health, thank you very much for both! This is the fate of Dick from Kirov Street," they added. This isn't the first time something like this has made the news.
Last year, a family living in the UK discovered the lifeless body of their tabby cat, buried it and even had a funeral for him. Only to everybody's surprise, the cat also came back to attend the same. Are animals getting too inspired by Pet Sematary? While we don't know the answer to that for sure, the movie's remake was recently released and while everybody was highly anticipating it, the result didn't come as desired.
Directed by Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer, starring Jason Clarke, Amy Seimetz, and John Lithgow, the movie only received a lukewarm response and wasn't such a Box Office success like people were hoping it would be. "Based on the novel by Stephen King, Pet Sematary follows Dr. Louis Creed (Jason Clarke), who, after relocating with his wife Rachel (Amy Seimetz) and their two young children from Boston to rural Maine, discovers a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods near the family’s new home. When tragedy strikes, Louis turns to his unusual neighbor, Jud Crandall (John Lithgow), setting off a perilous chain reaction that unleashes an unfathomable evil with horrific consequences..." reads the official premise of the movie.
