The body of the dog that went missing in Mosquito Creek was found yesterday.
The 8-month-old Labradoodle had gone missing on November 30 at 1:30 pm.
Clover’s body was found close to the spot where she had gone missing, stuck under the falls and between the rocks in the area.
Clover was found by a man who had gone to bathe under the falls that are just above Montroyal Blvd, near the DNV fire station.
“He happened to go into the sections and he noticed something under the rocks, and it was her leg,” said Sharon, the owner of Clover.
An emotional Sharon said even though the family had imagined the worst considering Clover had been missing since November, they somehow still hoped that she was alive.
“We had started getting hopeful, but this is what we had really thought had happened,” she said.
“We searched the area extensively, but she seemed to have been stuck in a spot in a way that wasn’t easy to see or get to.”
Sharon would like to thank the community who went looking for Clover, especially the firefighters from DNV firehall number 3, who helped in the initial search and then helped retrieve the dog’s body.
“I’d be grateful if people can take the missing signs off now. I can’t even look at them,” Sharon said, crying.
“Our family now needs some time to grieve and heal.”
