Saying Good-bye...

Today is hard...We had to say good-bye to our beloved Scamp, our bassett hound. My dh called me this morning at 6:30, on his way to work, to say that he saw Scamp at the edge of the road. He had been run over this morning. We live on a dirt road, but we are close to the paved road where he was hit. I had to tell the kids...so heartbreaking. My youngest child doesn't know yet because he spent the night with a friend and is not home now. A dear neighbor from the dirt road behind our house stopped by on her way to work this morning to make sure we knew. She said her husband saw him this morning and moved him out of the road...and told me how much they would miss Scamp...how he came to visit them every day. Needless to say, we are heartbroken. Scamp was such a good dog...a good friend. But he was too much like his father...he liked to ramble. We knew he was always roaming off in the woods behind our house to visit folks, and rambling down the dirt road. He always accompanied us on our walks down the dirt road, and tried to follow my oldest son on his daily runs. We will miss him!


  1. Tried to post a few minutes ago but it erased it. I am praying for you. My heart hurts for you... we grow to love our pets. He was a nice dog... great pics.

    when I read the title of your thread I said "oh no she is saying goodbye to blogging!" I am glad YOU are not saying goodbye. :)


  2. AH... that's so sad. Sorry for the loss of your beloved family pet.

  3. I am so sorry. How completely heart breaking. We have two dogs and I can't imagine how I would tell my boys if something happened to either of them.

    Again. I am so sorry.

  4. I am so sorry you lost your dog. How heartbreaking for the whole family. It is so hard to lose a beloved pet.


Leave a comment if you'd like... I'd love to hear from you.
