A man named Zach Medlin was walking his dog in Kiroli Park in West Monroe, Louisiana when he noticed something exciting. He had never seen it before, even though he had been walking that road for years, walking his dog. A small square stone peeked out from among the fallen leaves and pine needles.
Medlin’s dog, Serena, a one-eyed Staffordshire terrier, was much more busy chasing ducks in the nearby lake. Of course, Medlin was highly intrigued by all this, so he wanted to invest more effort and investigate what it was all about. He discovered an old stone tablet.
According to this man, the inscription on the stone tablet was covered with leaves. He carefully moved all the leaves to clear the board and read what it was about. It was a plaque dedicated to the deceased.
The inscription read: “Buddie, 1928 – 1941. Born a dog / Died a gentleman.”
