This is SO sad....

A good friend of mine emailed me last night with terrible news... her 6 month old puppy escaped out of their yard and was killed by a car... Apparently she ran right out front of it and the poor driver couldnt stop. The poor little thing!! I just got their Christmas card last week of her sitting on the couch wearing reindeer antlers and looking so happy.

I myself have only had my own dog a month or so now - and I couldnt imagine my life without him already!!

Poor little Allie....RIP

Now go give your pets a big hug and kiss!

This exact thing happened to my niece a few years back, her cocker spaniel got loose from his lead in front of their house and ran into the street and got hit by a truck. Worst part is that my niece (who was around 12 at the time) witnessed it.
Very sad.

I'm so sorry, Kath.

This is why Mia stays indoors at all times. I don't get people who let their cats wander.

Whenever Nik is let out, we make sure a hundred times if the gate is shut. She's gotten loose a few times, though... Always scary.

May God Bless. One of cats was hit by a car a few years ago and I still have not forgiven myself. He got out and we did'nt know. I hope your friend will be ok.

That happened to us when I was 4. We had the cutest little puppy, a cockapoo named Scooby Doo. Mom was taking him out so he could do his business (god, I sound like an old lady) and he got out of her grasp and ran right into the road. I haven't had a puppy since.

poor little puppy.

a few years back, we had the most beautiful malamute in the world for just under a year when he got trampled by a speeding taxi. it was awful. losing a pet can be just as painful as losing a human family member.

my dog, a retriever, is extremely resourceful when it comes to escaping the backyard. we had to build 1.5 m fences around it to keep him in, he dug under them! we had to reinforce the wall with bricks! yesterday i saw him jump over a fence and get to the front yard! it is ridiculous!

at least he is not resourceful enough to reach the highway, he gets distracted by the other dogs on the block.

poor little puppy.. im sorry about your friend, she must be having a very hard time

Measure out the exact center of the yard,. or a distance from a logical centerpoint to the fence. Drive a stake into the ground at that spot and leash him to it with a leash that just lets him reach the closest fence. It might sound rough, but it's better than losing him.
