Bad Dream

My puppy was killed yesterday when another dog broke through a fence and attacked him.  It was a horrific scene witnessed by my small children, and we are all pretty traumatized.  I am thankful though for my wonderful neighbors who cried and mourned with me yesterday, for my bff who threw me and my broken and bloody dog in her BMW and drove around like a mad woman and then bought me new clothes so I wouldn't have to go home in my bloody ones and scare the kids even more, and for my husband who held me all night while I cried.


  1. oh honey...i am so sorry!! for fucks sake that is terrible!! i mean, shitballssuckpods! did you kill that motherfucking dog?? i would have killed that fucking beast!! actually no...i would have killed the motherfucking owners of that motherfucking dog!!! if you need me to send a scary letter of hate and murder threats i will!
    the same thing happened to a friend of mine, only it was a cat and it didn't die, just horribly horribly maimed and forever terrified and weird. it was their neighbor's dog who did it and they at least offered to pay for the hospital expenses. i hope whoever owns this dog does the same for you..and as i said, if you need me to i will scare the shit out of them.
    big hugs for you and your poor sweet children..i am so sorry

  2. oh my god. i'm so sorry. i wish there was something i could do to console you. please know i'm thinking of you...let me if you need anything, even though we actually don't know each other, i'm serious...let me know if there is anything i can do for you. poor baby. my heart is broken for you and your pup.

  3. He was such a sweet baby. I'm so glad and honored to have met him on Easter. I know what it feels to witness your own dog die, and it is a horrific feeling that no one should have to witness. I can't stop thinking of you, Jon, and the kids. I can tell you that the pain will heal. You will stop thinking of the tragedy and eventually start thinking of the good times you had with Louis. I know it seems impossible but you will heal. Many people don't understand what it feels like to love a dog as much as you did. Know that I can relate and I am thinking of you. Stay strong.
    Love, Elizabeth
