Jynx was my special baby, a beautiful little black cocker spaniel. He had the quirkiest personality and did things that made me laugh constantly. He also never left my side if he could help it.
Last night he followed my husband outside to take out the trash, making sure my husband was safe and everyone in the neighborhood knew that Jynx was the boss, I'm sure. But then he darted out into the street in front of a truck. He was gone before we ever even got him back into the house.
Now I feel like I'll never be happy again and my world is just crumbling around me and there's nothing I can do about it. If I had just trained him better, if the gate would have latched properly, if it hadn't been dark so he couldn't be seen. So many ifs and why didn't I's, and it's all my fault.
He was an amazing little boy with a personality bigger and more animated than most people I know. He'd been with me since he was two months old and that just gave us a little over a year together but it's a year I'll never forget.
Rest easy, my baby. I'll always love you.
