Serial killer Myra Hindley pictured with her beloved dog Puppet on the moors where she and Ian Brady buried the bodies of their victims. Due to the number of photographs taken on the moors with Puppet the police deemed it necessary to age the dog in order to determine when the photos were taken. This involved analysing the dogs teeth and putting him under anaesthetic, however the dog did not survive the procedure. Upon hearing the news of her dogs death Myra stated :
I feel as though my heart’s been torn to pieces. I don’t think anything could hurt me more than this has. The only consolation is that some moron might have got hold of Puppet and hurt him.
