A Very Sad Day!

Today has been a very SAD day for me. My dog, EmilyAnne, was hit by a car last night and died. Emmy and Fred, our 80 pound, outside dog, who has been living in my utility room for the past 3 weeks because of the weather, somehow got out of their fenced in back yard last night and made their way to the highway. Emmy was killed instantly, which I am thankful for. My DH was out in his truck looking for them and came upon her just after she was hit. Fred made his way home across the field, and when Emmy was not with him I knew something had happened to her. DH picked her up and brought her home and he buried her this morning. She was 6 1/2 year old, and I had gotten her when she was 6 weeks old. A little ball of black fur. She was truly MY dog, my shadow. I miss her terribly and have had a very SAD day. She was not a pedigree dog, just part terrier and dashhound, but a little bundle of joy, that shared my life for such a short while.

"To get the full value of JOY, You must have Somebody to divide it with." Mark Twain
