This is the heartbreaking moment when a mother dog tries to bring her dead puppy back to life by digging it out of a grave.
The three-year-old Labrador mix, Kookie, had puppies on Sunday evening in Zamboanga, the Philippines. Unfortunately, one male puppy did not make it through the night.
Owner Kaye de Luna and her family were awakened early the next morning by the loud barking of Kookie, warning that one of her puppies, the weakest of the group, had died overnight.
Giving the pup a dignified goodbye, Mrs. De Luna buried the little one in an unmarked grave in their yard.
A few hours later, when the family went for a walk with Kookie, she went to her pup’s grave and started digging frantically.
Footage shows the mother dog struggling to dig up her dead pup, scratching the surface of the grave.

After finally removing enough dirt to reach the puppy, the mother pulls out the lifeless puppy with her mouth.
Mrs. De Luna said, “The first time Kookie was pregnant, she miscarried. Now a puppy has died. She must be devastated.
“It is very sad for her. We could see how much she cared about her entire litter. Even the one who died still thought of him. ‘
