Well tonight was a horrible night :cry

My wife and I went out to my parents house (Mom - Firefly and Dad - Camping Brat) to help them with their bathroom.

On the way in their long driveway their two dogs (Adie - Brittany Spaniel, and Maggie - Golden Retriever( came running down through the yard like they always do to greet people coming in the driveway.

But tonight they were wrestling around with each other and not paying attention and got down closer to the truck I tried to slow down and I blew the horn to try and scare them but Adie din't get out of the way in time, and I hit her hit the truck on the passenger side.

I threw it in park and my wife and I jumped out and she was under the truck screaming and bleeding, I grabbed a blanket out of the truck and through it over her and put her in the back seat of the truck and my Mom and I tried to keep her calm while my wife drove like the wind to the vet in Ebensburg.

The vet said they would call when they knew something. They called and said she took a turn for the worse, and might not make it... She called an hour later and she had passed away... :cry

I feel like crap, I cannot believe how fast something like this can happen so fast! I feel so bad...

Please give them you condolences... My Adie rest in Peace !

Good Bye Adie, you were a great dog... You will be missed !

Very sorry to hear of your accident. Those darn dogs. Nobody how hard you may try, they still manage to become an integral part of your family.

I was reading your conversation on the shout box last night and just couldn't think of anything to say. I know nothing was going to make you feel any better.

You and your family are in my thoughts.

Thanks Randy... I feel terrible about it...

I was so worked up last night, we wrapped her in a blanket and I kneeled in the back of my crew cab with the seats folded up trying to keep her alert the whole way to the vet...

I thought for sure she would make it, she lost alot of blood though, I think that was the hardest part for her...

My brothers and I burried her today down by my parents pond, the raise pheasnats to hun, and they sacrificed a hen and cock bird and burried them with her as well...

She was looking forward to first day of pheasnat as she always goes out.

She will be missed... Thanks for your kind words...

Tom
