oh, karen. i'm so sorry.

i hope karma is in effect here, so that whomever did this dearly pays for it, so they never do it to anyone else and know what they did to you.

Karen, I am so sorry about your pets. There hasn't been a pet in my home since our family dog died years ago. I was heart broken, and I haven't had another pet since then because the loss cut so deep.

"Whatever a man sows, that shall he also reap" It's a universal truth. I'm glad that your husband has been such a comfort to you. We really don't know the depth of the caring and compassion of the people in our lives until we go through adversity. You had three wonderful dogs who brought you so much joy and happiness.

No one can take away the memories you had with them.

Hi MexicoKaren, sorry I missed this post somehow. What a terrible tragedy. I am so very sorry to hear about your loss.

As GB indicated please be careful, the situation with the neigbours seems worrisome.

Everyone has to pay a price for their actions, so place your trust in God and take peace in that.

what a horrible thing...
nothing can comfort you right now, but I hope you'll be better soon!
LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

I haven't been around much lately and to hear this of such a good and gentle lady just makes my heart ache and boil at the same time.

God must have needed them to be together, knowing how they would have suffered without each other.

The people or person who did this has a special place in HELL waiting for them. Though that's no consolation now.

I'll keep you ... and them ... and the evil soul that did
this ... someone who is weak and da*med and
is irrational, in my prayers.

I hope through your family and friends and the beautiful art you create,
you can work your pain and lose out and begin anew. Nothing can replace those babies, but many
more need you and your love.
But not til you find the evil doer.
I don't know your living situation down there, but read what you said about your neighbor. It sounds hinky.
Just be careful.
And please keep us posted of your well being. We're
here for you. In all ways, always!

All I know is that losing just one pet is devastating but to lose all is just catastrophphic (SP) I cry everytime I check this thread. I am so sorry for you Karen and I know there is not much we can say to comfort you I wish there was. If you do end up getting some more canine companions you can teach them to not eat anything but what you and DH give them or anyone else with out the password it is not a hard thing to do from what I understand.

This is absolutely horrifying, and royally p***es me off to hear about these things. I personally think there is a special place in h**l reserved for the kind of people like these.
If there is anything we can do, please let us know Karen.

Thank you all dear friends for the continuing words of comfort. Something very very wrong is afoot here: our neighbor who lives a block away and around the corner - he is Mexican - told us this afternoon that all four of his dogs were poisoned last night in exactly the same way: a bag of fish dusted with a powdery substance. This is so sad, and also makes us think that it is NOT our next door neighbor, as he would have no reason to poison Joaquin's dogs. We don't know what to think...

Saludos, Karen
