Gone to Doggie Heaven

Dash's daughter, who looks just like him


Yesterday morning I learned from the landlord that our neighbors lost two of thier dogs within hours of each other. Dash and Brownie. I know I have taken a dozen or so pics of Dash, but can't seem to find any. I guess I thought there was more time to get a better pic.

Dash was here the day we moved in and greeted us. He was a friend from the beginning. My dogs loved him like part of the family. He would come over and scratch on the door asking for the others to come out and play. Nearly everyone that has come over to our house has been greeted by Dash either by barking or tail wagging depending on wether he had made up his mind about you. He was Chaquita's "want to be" boyfriend, he was very persistant in trying to get her to join his harem. He was so much more than all of this and we loved him. He will be missed greatly.

Brownie was Dash's mate. She was shy at first and was hard to get to know, but she came around as frequently as Dash, they were a pair and was always together in all that they did. She had such a sweet face and if you was lucky enough to touch her she would jump all over you as if you were golden, till the next day and you had to start all over with her. LOL! She was funny like that.

I did this post about them back in March of last year.

Apparently they either got into something that had antifreeze in it or the unthinkable happened and they were posioned. No evidence of where they got it has been found.

I do hope it was all an accident, I would hate to think that we have evil people living out here.

Soo yesterday was spent morning the loss of these wonderful dogs and also in fear of how their demise happened.

I'm going to miss his little bark.

Ugh. I'm sorry to hear that, Heather. Hopefully they didn't suffer.

I just will never understand how people can be so cruel to animals, or do things like poison animals. If you have a problem with them, talk about it to the owners! So sad for their owners and for you; they become like our children.

So sad! I am having a moment myself today, really missing my big dog Texas. He'll have been gone 3 years in June, and nothing has filled the hole. I feel for your neighbors and you.

Wow, I hope it wasn't coyotes. They have those here (near the city in Dallas even).

Aw. I'm sorry to hear about the passing of those sweet doggies. It's always the good ones, right?

I'm guessing they got into something they shouldn't have. I guess I'd rather think that than think there's someone out there who's so evil.

EEEK. I wonder if it was antifreeze? Or it could have been chocolate from the trash if they got into it, although I don't think that's immediately deadly. It just makes them really sick.
