    So sad. It's my biggest fear that my little buddy will get out and get run over. I can't handle that because it's avoidable and my sis doesn't think about that.

    Sorry for your loss Ryan! In the 20+ years we have lived here, on a short 5 mile long road, we have lost 4 dogs to the drivers on this road.

    My dogs wandered away on day when the wife didnt lock the gate. One came back in 3/4 hours. The other one was gone for almost 3 weeks.

    My wife drove all around placing pix of him everywhere. About 3 weeks latter we got a call from the police the next town over that they had him. He was just wondering around in a park.

    We still to this day don't know how he lasted 3 weeks with no food and water. You can leave the door or gate open all day now had he won't go by it. He doesn't like to go outside much anymore. He likes it inside by us and his food bowl.

    Absolutely no different than losing a family member. I am very sorry for your loss. I pray for things to improve.

    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.

    So sorry to hear about that Ryan. Not only is my dog a family member he is the most loyal best friend you could ever have, my friends call him my kid. Seeing Im not married,and I have no kids, they're pretty much right. I dread the day I lose him.

    That is the truth, our pets especially dogs are so special loving creatures.

    We lost our two years back, one one year and the other the next to age and sickness but it's never easy.

    Our best to you Ryan.

    I contemplate watching my boys leave me one at a time while I must remain behind. It's a saddening thought. It's been hard, already, with the ones I've already seen leave. No doubt they are family. I'm sorry you lost yours.
