Bucket


I have been putting off this post since yesterday, it's complicated story, but in the end the results are the same. I want to send a special Thank You out to Officer Chapin from Suffolk Animal Control, she was so sweet and understanding and was willing to go out of her way.

The dogs run all around, but have been real good about not going too far, well they went way down the street yesterday. Bucket was hit and one of the State grass cutters found him in the grass and called animal control. Someone had just hit him and kept on going. He had a collar, but I had not gotten there city tags yet, officer Chapin went to every house on our road trying to find the owner. Mark evidently did not hear her knock, so she took him to the vet, but his back was broken and she said he was a mess. He only weighs about 10 pounds so any kind of trauma would be bad. She had already put him down by the time I called. It was the right thing to do. We will miss him so much.

The world is a little less happy today for the Myers Family

Wendy, I know what it's like to lose a pet. They are part of the family. Remember the good times and the hurt won't be so bad after a few months.

Yes I fully can sympathise with how you all must feel, losing a family "friend"------but lie goes one, one can only remember the good times one had ----and in time the hurt fades away.
