My mom's Boston Terrier was hit by one of her neighbors this morning, right after he'd been let outside to do his morning business. He made it back inside before he collapsed, and then died shortly after. I didn't see him (my sister and Dad had brough his body to the vet before I got there), but I suspect it was from internal bleeding. Mom is devastated, of course, and I have to admit that I am as well. I really loved that dog - he was always happy to see me, and we'd always play or go for a walk. Every time I think about it, I start crying. I don't know if it was better or worse for my mom to be there for his death. She didn't want any company. I'm working from home today and giving extra love to my cats.

In other bad news, the daughter of one of my favorite co-workers (actually the one that just left the company last month) died suddenly on Friday night. She was 27 and had just given birth last fall to his first grandson. I can't imagine what he's going through.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I remember meeting him. He was a cute doggie.

Please convey my condolences to your Mom for me.

Your co-worker... I don't even know what to say. How terrible!

I'm so sorry-- poor little guy! I'm glad that you can have a day of working at home with your critters.

My condolences too to your coworker, that's really sad. I hope he has lots of family and friends around to comfort him.

Thank you. My co-worker is surrounded by his family, so I hope that he's doing as well as he can be at this time.

Oh Sue, I'm so very sorry! Please give my condolences to your mom. I will be keeping you both in my thoughts as well as your co-worker. I can't even imagine how he must be feeling.

My condolences on both of them. It is often the unexpected deaths that hit the hardest as we do not have time to accept what may be coming. Let me know if you need anything.

And if you need ideas, remember my answer to almost anything...Ppie...

It may not be able to take away the pain, but it can at least make it taste good

Pie makes almost everything better! It's a shame that it hasn't yet been proven scientifically. :)

As I said earlier, I'm so sorry. He was a fabulous dog.

I cannot fathom your co-worker's emotions. These days my mind shudders back from even contemplating it.

Please let your mom know that she has my deepest sympathy. Tashi died in my arms, but at least we knew how ill he was. They become part of your heart, and there's no easy way to lose them.

Oh Sue... I've been offline a long time, and I am so sorry to hear your news all these months later. Belated hugs.
