My son one day found a little dog one day.He looked like he was chiuahua mixed with dasund.The first night was thanksgiving and because he looked so malnourished i fed him alot of turkey and ham. We had just recently moved into our apartment and he did circles pooping all over our new carpet. that was it,i told my son this dog is not staying he ruined our dinner and thanksgiving! To make a long story short we kept him. And because i couldnt think of a name i named him "SHITTY"! shitty became a special part of the family.He went EVERYWHERE with us! My husband works nights so shitty slept with me and my other dog "SHAKEY" oh how we came to love shitty so so much. We only got to enjoy shitty for six short months.And then he ran out one day trying to get to a neighbor dog that was in heat and ran right in front of a car and was killed instantly. my poor "SHITTERS" and poor me oh my god i ran and picked him up screaming someone hit my baby. My husband and i rushed shitty to the pet hospital but it was too late i believe shitty died in my arms on the way there i was histerical and pure devastation was soon to follow.I have never been so hurt over a animal.some time has passed now and i have another dog simular to shitty i guess you could say he was a good replacement because i was so torn up over the death of shitty that i was wondering is how im feeling normal?I think it sad that dogs have such a short life span!but while my dogs are still around they will have as much love as shitty had cause they sure bring me happiness!i just dread the day they pass cause this feeling of devastation and saddness can be pretty overwhelming when your pet dies! shitty we love you and hope your running around up there in doggy heaven!

Lesley I am sorry for your loss of your dog shitty. But I am happy that you were able to replace him as this will keep ongoing memories for you that will enhance life living with pets. I have lost pets and can't replace them because of the pain when losing them. But I do respect people who do go on to replace a pet and so engage new memories and also give a darling pet a new home and Love. Best wishes
