Re: My Dog got killed today!
Having become a first time dog owner at age 62, I understand what you and your family are going through.
DD is spot on as to how a pet, especially a dog becomes a family member.
WV Hillbilly's post is one of my favorites. "The Rainbow Bridge". Make sure that your son reads it.
Life is full of peaks and valleys. I think that this is your valley which means that your next peak is awaiting you and your family.
