There is no way to put this. No way to tell you how difficult this is for us but we lost our dog Leo just before new years. He was hit and killed by a car near our home. We recognize that it's a dog - that no human lives were lost; that my children are all safe; that the driver (who stopped) was not physically hurt, my husband who lifted him from the roadside and brought him home to us was not physically harmed either. But the pain and emptiness we feel is devastating regardless.
I am wiping tears as I type this and know that I mean it from the very bottom of my heart when I tell you that I appreciate all of your hilarious comments and advice over the last three years regarding this rascal of a dog. Guinifer, I can't thank you enough for helping us find his breeder. Hold on - crying again. . .
Thanks to my family and friends for understanding and for loving and missing him, too.
