Shooter 2009-2010

I still can't believe you're gone. It was just the other day I played with you, letting you lick my face and take your dog treats from my mouth. I am so sorry I wasn't there to protect you. You got loose somehow and you wandered into the street and got hit.

I hope you didn't suffer. I still can't believe that whoever hit you didn't stop. I wonder if they know how much pain they caused me. Even though it was probably an accident, any decent person would have stopped.

You were like a child to me. I am so devastated that you're gone. I want to blame the ones who let you out but I know they hurt too.

I never had a dog like you before. You would look at me when I was talking to you, do your famous head tilt, like you knew what I was saying. You were so smart. You always had to sit on my lap when we were in the car. It frustrated me sometimes but I always let you do it. You loved to put your paw on the steering wheel and hang your head out the window.

You died way too young, Shooter. Your life had barely started but I know you knew you were loved and I have to believe that you are in a better place.

You will always be my boy. Daddy loves you and misses you dearly.

I feel your pain
by: David

I lost one to a car a little over a year ago. It still hurts he was only 3 & a 1/2 or so. They give so much!

I'm sorry for your loss. There doesn't seem to be anything to do but grieve and keep moving on. I watched it happen to mine and thought he was ok but by the time we got to the Vet I knew it wasn't.

I don't know what to say except share my story. You can look at mine under "Trog my very best friend." I suppose just try to think of the good times you had.

Take care, David
