...Hello, fellow newsviners.
Yesturday at around 1pm eastern time, I took my beloved wiener dog Woody outside through the backyard for him to "make" and he did. Then as I was distracted and since he is so little I did not see him run towards the front of the house. All I heard was him barking for a few minutes, then nothing. I live on a very busy avenue, so I ran to street and this man yells out that my dog was hit by a van!!
I immediately started screaming as I looked in the street and I see his little body writhing in agony! As I run to pick him up, he is gasping for air, he is dying in my arms. My beloved Woody came to us when he was 4 weeks old, he was 5 and a half when he died. He died in my husbands arms. No one saw the van, they kept going. a part of me died with him.
At 3pm we had to tell our 11 year old and then again at 4pm we told our 16 year old, they were both devastated and sad. We wrapped his body in a white fluffy towel and took him to vet where we $250.00 to have him cremated. They will put his ashes in a beautiful little wooden box with a name plaque and locket.
How can I ever get over such a loss? He somehow knew I had Multiple Sclerosis. He followed me everywhere. He love looking at me with his cute goofy face.
My boys miss him, my family miss him, but I miss him so, so much!!! I do not want anymore dogs! Woody was my 1st and last dog:(
