Karen, I am really saddened to hear about your tragic loss of your beloved pets. I am sure that your pets like my dog are an integral part of your family. I will be thinking of you and your husband.

Take care and many hugs, SC

Karen, I am horrified at your loss and sick to my stomach. I hope you can feel all the love and hugs that are coming your way. I am so very sorry.

Yes, be careful. At the same time they simply can't just get away with it.

A horrible way for anything to die - I am thinking of you.

I am overwhelmed by your kindness. I cannot express how much it helps. Thank you all for your generosity and compassion. I was so reluctant to share this tragedy with you, because I knew it would cause you pain. This is a remarkable community of loving friends. Thank you.
Saludos, Karen

How despicable.. may Karma bite them soundly on their butts.
Big psychic hugs! They are still around in your hearts, at least!

It is said that those who mistreat animals will have to account for their actions, maybe not in this life, but there will be an accounting. But the hardest part of this is, of course, the loss of a loved family member. I feel so very bad that someone was evil enough to do this.

And after the initial loss, then, mistrust grows as to who was the perpetrator. All I can say is that there are probably a host of good people around you, and one sick individual. I hope it can be found out who that person is. And I hope that this doesn't cause irreversible damage to the relationships you may have with your neighbors.

And remember, just as our lives don't ever cease (at least that's my belief), neither do the lives of our pets or of any living thing. They just change from this mortal sphere to an immortal one.

It is my prayer that love and charity may fill your heart, and that the support you receive, not only here on DC, but from your family and friends will help heal the wounds of this tragedy.

I am so sorry for your loss. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. I lost a dog in April and I am still mourning her.
I hope to God that they catch the person(s) who did this. I personally would love for them to eat that fish. This is unbelievable. Hang in there and keep us updated.

karen, how very sad you must be. i am just angry that someone could be so cruel. what if a toddler had gotten hold of it? must have been a powerful poison if the dogs died instantly. this is one of the reason my cat never goes outside. that is hard to do for dogs though. i would call the police myself. but if you do be very careful.
