I actually think that Tins calling 911 wasn't that unusual. It depends on the town you live in. Where I live now and where I used to live in NJ, fire departments are mostly volunteer and if they're not busy, they'll come. And they're great. So are small town police.
I've never heard of freezing an animal but given her explanation, it wasn't all that bazaar. I've waited for family to be there before putting a animal down. So why is freezing after death that different if her sister wanted to say good bye?
Sorry, I'm a little sensitive today. Had to bring our dog to the emergency animal hospital today. She was limping and we didn't know why. After an ortho exam, the vet thinks it's likely a soft tissue injury. Meds and keeping her quiet the next few days and wait and see. The last ten minutes in the waiting room waiting for her meds and discharge was so sad. A women came in holding an older dog with a heart problem and she was in tears. She said the dog could hardly walk. Then another person came in and asked for a gurney to transfer their dog from the car into the hospital. That poor pup. It was a larger dog and they had him wrapped in blankets. You just knew something was terribly wrong and the owners were so upset.
Tins did what she thought was right. At least she didn't go on SM and be hysterical in front of a child.
