Sad Day

Just had to call our oldest son Mardy with some very sad news. We have been keeping his 2-1/2# Yorkie while he is in California working. Let him out this morning to do his thing and for the 1st time in over a year, he ran straight thru the trees to US Hwy 601 and got hit by a car. He had never even ventured that direction before in the many times we've kept him.

RIP Buddy!

Sorry for your loss, OC. They have a way or working their way into your heart, even if they're not "yours" per se. Losing pets (either to accident or old age) is one of the hardest things we go through as humans, I really believe. Hang in there.

Sorry for your loss. I found my dog playing in the road on Sunday also. She never has ventured near the road before. It was very scary because where I live they come by doing 40 or 50 MPH even though there is a stop sign only yards away. I made sure she understood that I was not happy about it.

Sorry to hear about your Grand dog, it is so hard to lose a pet, they leave their paw prints on our heart.

One of the hardest things I've done was calling Mardy and then digging Buddy's grave crying. Yes, even a crusty old codger like me cries.

OC... OMG, My heart goes out to you and your entire family. This has to be a very tough one for all.

God be with you and you family. Our prayers are with you.

Sorry to hear the news OC. It is amazing how attached we become to the 4 legged friends. Thinking about you and your son.
