Duke was killed in an accident on December 12th. I don't have any nice words, or anything to say, because I'm not good with words and can not describe what a dog he was, or my pain right now. I don't know how to get pictures on here without going through Photobucket, so I'll just put a link to my blog post with lots of pictures if him.

I just lost one of my dogs to a sudden illness. I feel your pain. I'm so very sorry. You don't "get over it," you can only get through it.

You ask of my companions. Hills, sir, and the sundown, and a dog as large as myself that my father bought me. They are better than human beings, because they know but do not tell. ~ Emily Dickinson

Aw. That is so sad. It is always really hard to lose a dog but I think it is the hardest to lose one due to an accident.

Hang in there. Time helps.

I am so sorry, Riika. I think it is hardest when it is sudden and the dog is not even old yet. It is tragic when that happens. My heart goes out to you.


and family.
