Am so very sorry, Alex. My tri boy Mr.T will be 12 in December. We lost our last 2 b's at ages 17 (Jenna went in her sleep), but Zak I had to have PTS as he had dementia really bad. Its never easy loosing these furkids. Kiya will live forever in your heart and memories, never to be forgotten. She is running with the wind and sunning herself in the warmth of the sun. Until you all meet again, someday. HUGS
RIP Leki 26/1-26/4 2013
Oh, I'm so sorry! What a tragic accident.
The minute I read it, I went and picked up Ava at a playdate. They were shocked to see me come so early. Sending healing thoughts to you and Butu during this sad, sad time. Hope he's doing okay…

Rest in peace sweet little girl. Such a tragedy, you are in my thoughts.

Oh I am so sorry for your loss. It's never enough time, but it's especially heartbreaking when a puppy is lost.
How sad, our condolences.
Thank you for your advice.

So sorry for your loss. What a terrible way to loose a puppy
Here to the dogs are never with collars when at home. I always worry because they do have to wear them when we are at the dog park and they play with other dogs…
How extremely tragic… My heart sunk reading about how it happened. I'm so sorry, but I thank you for sharing, even in your grief.
Oh what a tragedy…. how extremely sad.... I feel so bad for you.
Our dogs never wear collars unless they're on a leash.
And you were just doing what you thought was best....
I am deeply sorry for your families loss
Sorry to hear of your loss, something you just don't expect to happen and your story will stop this happening to someone else. Will tell my family and friends the dangers of leaving collars on. All the best hugs from Kaiser and me.
Jolanda and Kaiser

I have warned people of this so often, and then something like this happens and I feel horrific that in the "WELCOME" enthusiasm we often forget to remind people of such dangers. It makes me sick that you are so far from the first and so far from the last that this will happen to. I swear I wish they would make collar manufacturers put a warning, because most people do not known until they hear of or have such a tragedy. I am just so terribly sorry for your loss. I know it isn't a comfort, but somewhere down the road, I am sure your warnings will have helped save many.
I just posted this a couple of days ago on FB.. It gives me solace and hope it might you also:
You want a physicist to speak at your funeral. You want the physicist to talk to your grieving family about the conservation of energy, so they will understand that your energy has not died. You want the physicist to remind your sobbing mother about the first law of thermodynamics; that no energy gets created in the universe, and none is destroyed. You want your mother to know that all your energy, every vibration, every Btu of heat, every wave of every particle that was her beloved child remains with her in this world. You want the physicist to tell your weeping father that amid energies of the cosmos, you gave as good as you got.
And at one point you'd hope that the physicist would step down from the pulpit and walk to your brokenhearted spouse there in the pew and tell him that all the photons that ever bounced off your face, all the particles whose paths were interrupted by your smile, by the touch of your hair, hundreds of trillions of particles, have raced off like children, their ways forever changed by you. And as your widow rocks in the arms of a loving family, may the physicist let her know that all the photons that bounced from you were gathered in the particle detectors that are her eyes, that those photons created within her constellations of electromagnetically charged neurons whose energy will go on forever.
And the physicist will remind the congregation of how much of all our energy is given off as heat. There may be a few fanning themselves with their programs as he says it. And he will tell them that the warmth that flowed through you in life is still here, still part of all that we are, even as we who mourn continue the heat of our own lives.
And you'll want the physicist to explain to those who loved you that they need not have faith; indeed, they should not have faith. Let them know that they can measure, that scientists have measured precisely the conservation of energy and found it accurate, verifiable and consistent across space and time. You can hope your family will examine the evidence and satisfy themselves that the science is sound and that they'll be comforted to know your energy's still around. According to the law of the conservation of energy, not a bit of you is gone; you're just less orderly. Amen.
I'm so sorry for your loss!

I am so very sorry, it must have been just awful for you. Mine never wear collars in the house, and we even walk in harnesses, thank you for thinking of others with your warning.
