sit down ..

Wyn is gone.

Dead and gone.

Oh sorry. Should I have built up to it?

Everybody who  knows has had the same reaction. NO. It just isn't possible.

Vital happy Sir Wynston Churchill, heart thief extraordinaire is no more, in his physical form anyhow.

He was hit by a car whose driver believes she was going too fast and wasn't paying enough the road. She is devastated and will be much harder on herself than I can ever be.

He died instantly, in the middle of a great game of tag with Sally. I wish we could all die doing something we loved so much.

Ironies of ironies he never ever had left the property unless he was in a car or on a leash, in fact he was barely on the road- just doing a loopy zoom around to get Sally in his gangly puppy fashion.

Sometimes life is cruel, sometimes it is just incomprehensible.

Oh Andrea, how awful. I'm so sorry.

I loved Wyn and his silly ears.

Oh Andrea, I'm so sorry. Poor little Wyn. In the short time he had, you gave him the best life a dog could have.

I've been hugging and petting Beckett and Keltic all day but I'm going to snuggle them again.

Take care.

So, so sad -- I can't begin to imagine what you are going through. I hope that with time and healing, the memories of his joy and his Wyn-ness will bring a smile to your heart, even through tears. I wish there was something I could do to help but please know that there are many of us grieving for your loss and so respectful of the wonderful life you gave him in so many ways. Hugs to you and your family.
