I've been devastated with the lost of my 2 year old yellow lab. Below is my e-mail I sent to my friends and family. It has been very tough to know my baby boy got hurt to the point that he died. He was such a living body and to be in the emergency room trying to revive him with blood coming out of his nose and mouth and him looking at me motionless is something I can't get it out of my head. He was my best friend. Does anyone have any comfort for me?
Hi Friends and Family,
For some of you I have probably been more of a stranger the past year than anything else. I feel weird even sending an e-mail to all of you, but my internals wanted it so. For the past year and half, I’ve been blessed with raising an absolutely crazy little dog, Ray which spawned us to get a second dog, Leo, to help her get along and make her happy. Well it turns out he did that and tons more changing my life forever. For the few you that met Leo, you know what I mean. He was all about the closest person that would give him love and he would return the favor ten fold. If you’ve never had a dog you might think all dogs are like this, but I came to learn he had some extra charm in him. He turned into the glue that held our chaos in a tight wet ball. On Monday morning, Leo decided to run into our street and got hit by car. Susie was my hero and got him into her car and off to the hospital. He ended up dying next to her in the car where upon I met them at the hospital where we tried everything to bring him back. It was one of the most difficult 15 minutes of my life. We are crushed with his loss and things are so very different now.
For me, please keep your loves ones extra close tonight and beyond.
