Lost my hunting buddy today !
« on: March 06, 2016, 03:43:33 PM »
R.I.P Charlie .. Well I have shock collars on my dogs So they do not leave my yard . Today the collar goes dead and there goes my dog ! You would think that the person would have the courtesy to call me and say they hit my dog ... he is in a better place and I know he is chasing rabbits as I know how many times I have watched him dreaming as he sleeps and starts howling ! Dang it ! Sad day for sure !

Sorry to hear. :'(  This happened to one of my dogs long ago and someone gave me a description of the car. I hunted that car for a week.

Man, that sucks. Sorry for your loss, a lot of us have been there too over the years, sure does not get any easier. No one knows why or how someone can hit a pet/family member and not figure out who needs to be notified. Again, sorry.

Sad news. Sorry to hear.

Really frustrating to lose a best friend, much less when it's premature like that. So sorry to hear.

Sorry for your loss.  It is tough!

At least you didn't watch it happen, as has been the case for me with 4 dogs.  I lived on a state highway, busy road.
