She continued: ‘It’s difficult to write this and we debated on sharing the video (the last slide) but we need other families to watch it. We didn’t have any warnings. We had never seen coyotes in our new neighborhood or found their droppings anywhere.’  

‘We did our morning routine like we always do, Chewy having to eat first and go poop alone in private. I turned to go get River a bottle, and heard her cry out in fear and pain,’ she detailed. 

Atkin said the capture ‘took 15 seconds’ and she ‘ran as fast’ but the coyote ‘took her over a 7ft fence’ as her other dog Roo watched.

‘Roo saw it all and tried to help her sister. This is traumatic. It’s devastating. She didn’t deserve this kind of an ending,’ the OUAI co-owner added. ‘To hear your baby cry out and not be able to do anything is hell. I’ll never forget her final cry.’

An house later, her husband Mike Rosenthal ‘found her remains in an abandoned yard.’ 

‘We truly did all we could screaming her name and driving thru the streets in panic. She was the light and laughter of our household. Our Princess. She got us thru the pandemic,’ Atkin wrote in her heartfelt tribute.

While she stated she was broken, she said she will ‘go on and laugh everyday about her and miss her jumping on our heads.’

As a final warning, the hairstylist advised other pet owners to ‘watch and love your dogs even more than you already do.’

‘When you’re feeling sad watch her video of her hiding wigs in our backyard. We miss you our little angel Chewy. We’re so so sorry. If anyone has tips on how to grieve we are struggling here,’ she concluded.
