I just heard that a very good friend of mine sadly had to have their 6 year dog pts. The dog was taken as normal for its daily walk by their friend & dog walker. They visited the local park & Dennis was let off the lead in an enclosed area, sadly someone else left a gate open & Dennis was happily chasing a squirrel when he ran out & into a the road where the inevitable happened & although taken to the vet sadly Dennis had broken his back & had to be pts
Everyone is obviously distraught but there is an extra sadness in that the dog walker's father was called Dennis & he died on the 6th of January the year my friends got Dennis from the rescue so they kept his name in memory, strange that the dog should die on the same date. Even though it is very soon my friends husband can't imagine life without another dog so was just looking at the various rescues when he was struck by another collie cross called Danny & they have applied to adopt him. It also turns out that the dog walker's father, was known as Danny, so a lot of coincidences involved. A lot of people will think that its too soon to be thinking about another dog but they feel that they have a lot of love to give another dog, in memory of Dennis.
Whatever happens my friends' "very special" Dennis will be sorely missed by everyone including their other dog.
I would likely be the same as your friend. After our last dog had to be PTS and the house was empty, I swore that I'd never have just one dog again. I'd wanted another dog before Patch got old but my parents wouldn't allow it.
How sad. They must be devastated. Strange with all the coincidences regarding dates and names - I think it's fate that has led them to Danny - it's not too soon; he will help them and they will help him by giving him a loving home.
lotsofcats: I wonder what the posts said? Glad to see the back of them.
