And you're surprised that you woke up to find him dead in his blanket?"InstagramInstagram"You are a f***ing disgrace and I hope you are never, ever, EVER allowed another animal in your company. You did not deserve a dog, you were using him as a prop for Instagram from the moment you got him."The seething dog owner also blasted Bear's decision to have his pup's name tattooed on his neck - an inking that came just days before Wolverine's death.They seethed: "And you think having his name tattooed on your neck makes you owner of the year?"I f***ing hate people like you.
