My neighbor's little Dachshund broke her back. They don't know how, but when they came home, it had happened, probably jumping off of the couch or something. They had her pts, she was suffering so. She was the cutest, sweetest, quietest little Doxie I ever met, an absolute darling. It's so sad. I will really miss seeing her when out on a walk. I'd stop and visit for a few minutes if they were out front and she and Jose` liked each other. Those poor people, a family with a lot of kids. They really loved her. They may be getting her litter mate which her Mom has in another state, but it may be only temporary. And they've gotten two little kitties just recently. But I know they're really sad about their little girl. Then my son's friend just lost her pittie to bladder cancer, which got him thinking about Toker and that she's getting older and something could happen any time. I told him it happens. (sometimes I don't think he thinks it ever will happen) In fact, I think we tend to want to put that out of our minds. And I know lots of people on here have lost their dogs lately. I just want to say how sorry I am for those of you and everyone who is going through this heart ache.
