I guess my family and I have been going thru a really bad patch of STUFF.
Our family is grieving.
My Mom and Dad’s two beautiful 3-4 year old German Shepherds were run over and killed. Another dog, a terrier mix, has a broken leg, which was operated on yesterday.
It happened right in front of my folks, in their 1/4 mile driveway.
My ex-brother-in-law was the one who hit them.
I mean, how weird! He was not going fast, as my parents’ farm has a gravel driveway. One second the big dogs were in his rearview mirror, the next second he ran them both over (tire ran right over their chests). Rosa died in the driveway, and Reika died en route to the vet. Watson did well in surgery yesterday, but won’t eat or stand yet. We’re hoping it’s just too soon for him after surgery.
Our entire family rallied around Mom and Dad and shared in their grief and sorrow. It was a beautiful thing to witness —- how much my folks are loved.
