MexicoKaren's Terrible Loss...

Hi everyone,

This is Mexico Karen's friend Laury here in Bucerias, Mexico. It's too hard for her to share this so I'm going to do it for her.
Over the weekend somebody threw some poisoned fish into their yard which killed all three of their dogs. Blondie, Dagwood and Bob died almost instantly. Karen and Jerry are absolutely devastated and in shock. Their dogs were like their children. I feel so helpless and sorrowful. I've been with those dogs many times and they were just the best. It's an awful loss. Thank goodness Karen's daughter Justine was here to help them cope.
Karen loves the DC community and I know you will all try to help comfort her. She needs all the support she can get.

Oh, Laury! I'm just heartbroken. I can't imagine the pain they are going through and what a spiteful thing to do. I hope the people who did it are caught and punished to the fullest.

Please pass on my love and condolences. Lots of love and hugs are sent from my house to them.

Thank you, Laury, for posting this. I just could not bring myself to share this terrible news with you all, and yet it felt somehow dishonest to act as if nothing had happened. Waking up this morning and getting hit with the full realization of what happened was almost unbearable. They were our children, and they were wonderful dogs. They didn't deserve to end their lives this way. Our next door neighbors, who have previously been a kind and friendly family, have taken a dark downturn the last few months, with obvious signs of drug dealing. He is already being investigated by the police, and they have come to talk with us about him - we can only conclude that there is a connection, because the dogs have been barking loudly at the people coming and going all night at their house. We'll take the bag with the poison to our vet this morning to see if he can shed any light on it - the fish was covered in a fine white powder. Our poor little Bob died in my arms only a few minutes after he found it - Dagwood and Blondie were already dead.

Jerry and I have never faced such a loss together, and I am so impressed with his strength, courage and love. His heart is broken and he is such a comfort to me. And I am so grateful that my wonderful daughter was here. The three of us buried them together yesterday afternoon, and then went down to the beach to look at the ocean for awhile.

Thank you all for your expressions of love and healing. I can feel it from here.
Saludos, Karen

Thank you for letting us know Laury..Karen,I'm so sorry, I just cannot understand why people have to be so selfish and cruel..Our furry family is the same as having children, we love them, cherish them, take joy in them and to have that taken away by such a cruel deed..I truly believe, what is handed out will come back and catch up with you..So to those who did this, look over your shoulders, someone is watching and will pay you back.. Karen, mighty hugs and prayers for you and your family..I'm so sorry.

HEAVEN is Cade, Ethan,Carson, and Olivia,Alyssa,Gianna
