Karen I am so sorry for your loss. I can't believe the cruelty of people. But PLEASE do be careful. You don't know what these people are capable of. I am sending you and Jerry tons of hugs and prayers. My heart aches for you both.

There are no words that can express how awful I feel for you. Our pets are our "children" too, & I can't even imagine how I'd handle a situation like yours.

While I also think you should tread carefully, I also think it's absolutely necessary that you bring the police into this. Poisoning is not something that should be taken likely, & if this neighbor was responsible in some way & decides to "up the ante", it could look very odd that you didn't report this first horrible transgression.

Try to stay strong - & safe!

Karen, I am saddened by what was done to your dogs. It's an inhuman and heartless thing to do.

Oh, Karen, I'm so sorry to hear about your poor dogs, and I'm sorry you and your husband have to go through something so horrible. I wish there was more I can do. Take care.

I am shocked! Knowing this happened to her could just as well happened to me. What can I say when no one could make me feel better to experience something like this. What was the point? This hurts just as much as if it happened to me. Now you all understand why I can't stand people! Real perverted minds. Dog would never deliberately kill someone unless they were scared and wanted to protect themselves. Just so stupid.

I'm so sorry to hear this Karen. I just can't stop crying, it hurts so much. We had a dog that was poisoned (we think we know who it was, but we were never able to prove anything). It wasn't really even our dog, but a stray that we had just arranged to give to my uncle the day we found him dead, but we had already grown to love him.

Our pets really are part of our families, and losing them in such a tragic and horrific manner is unimaginable. As GB and others have said though, please take care and don't put yourselves in harm's way.

Thank you Laury for letting us know. It had to be hard for you to have to write.

There are no words to describe how awful this story is. I pray to God the monster who did this gets his just dues. My heart goes out to you and your husband.
