Butch was killed by big truck Sunday :(

Our daughter's fiancée's chocolate lab, Butch, age 7, went to heaven Sunday due to being hit by a truck. There have been many tears. I never met Butch, but still feel the loss very painfully.

That old man - he don't think like an old man...

Re: Butch was killed by big truck Sunday :(

Thank you all so much! Fortunately, no one saw it happen. Parents went for a walk with Butch and he went away from them for a bit, when they went back to look for him, oh me, the parents found him hit. It is so sad. I've been even closer to mine since this happened. Last night, I was in my recliner, she was lying on me, both of us sound asleep... Wife woke us up about 11:30 to go to bed. She crawled into her pen with bed in it, I into my bed. All was well at our house, so I think of Butch's family.

Let's keep taking great care of our crits.

That old man - he don't think like an old man...

Re: Butch was killed by big truck Sunday :(

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Re: Butch was killed by big truck Sunday :(

This is so sad. I understand feeling the loss for your kids, even if you never met or pet the dog. I know how painful it is when we lose a dog. In this house, our dogs are family. It can be brutal when we lose one. Condolences to you and to your family. Non-pet-owners can never know the loss but then they never know the love and joy that comes with a furry family member though either. Sorry for your pain and your families loss MacLawn.
