Tragedy at home
« on: November 03, 2019, 07:05:50 AM »
Last night our elderly dog, Buckley, fell in our pool and drowned. He was in pretty bad shape already and had a seizure yesterday morning. My wife kept him near all day but he kept stumbling around and falling down steps, etc. We gave him his meds and he seemed okay otherwise. But, in a brief moment of neglect he must have stumbled out the back door and fell in the pool. I cannot even begin to deal with the horror of finding my dog drowned. We've lost lots of animals over the years but never to an accident. And, we had him for 15 years. I'm just thankful that I'm the one that found him to spare my wife and daughter of that image.

Anyway, hug your pets for me today. If you have a moment, post your favorite pic of your pets. It'll make me feel better!

Brian -

I'm so sorry for your loss.   I can't even imagine finding one of my dogs that way.

As requested, here's a picture of one of my boys, "Fox":

I had to say goodbye to my cat last Thursday. Pets are family.

That's really tough. Condolences. Try to take solace in what you can.

Oh man that is so unfortunate, I hope everyone is doing okay. It is hard to lose a family member like that.

Here is our savage sam.
