Oh, I'm so sorry Barbara. How unexpected and sad. I have yet to lose a pet as Aspen is my first. (Well, except the multitude of rodents I've had )

My sympathies and I hope you are able to do something about that dog.

Thanks everyone. It definitely helps to go through this with others, even if via computer. Cubbie is probably going to start wondering what is up pretty soon. I think my crying scared him a little! He is all tuckered out, lying in front of James's chair.

Barbara

I'm so so sorry to hear this bad news. Katie and I have been through the experience of losing a beloved pet and know the pain. We are there for you.

I'm so sorry Barbara....
We had to give up our cat 2 weeks ago, I cried all the way there, filling out paperwork and back home.... I've resisted checking on him thus far.
I can't imagine the sudden loss you've had.

I've lost couple of dogs in my life and can't handle it any more, it is just too sad. I feel your pain, and I am very sorry. It's been 10 years since the last dog and I still once in a while get really sad about him.

My heart goes out to you, Cubbie and James. Hold on to those dear pictures and memories. Push the animal control people to do something! HUGS.

Thank you. I have lost enough pets through the years to know that "this too shall pass," and I have so many wonderful memories of Mr. Frodo. We still have two cats, but they won't let us get near them. One of them will even come in the house and lay near my feet, but if I try to touch her she runs or claws me! Someday I would like to have another cat--one that will hopefully like staying in the house more than Mr. Frodo did.

We will definitely keep after Animal Control. Now that my cat has died, maybe they will take it more seriously.

Barbara

He wouldn't have wanted to live that way. You did the right thing.

Bless your heart.
