we said good bye to our mr. man

sunday evening, july 5th, one day shy of his first birthday we watched helplessly as niko was hit and killed by a pick up truck. he died in my husbands arms within minutes - there was nothing we could have done. at least he did not suffer - thankfully.

i am not a regular contributor to this forum - but i read it everyday - but i thought i could share my pain with you all.

i don't fully blame the driver of the truck - we were working on off leash training in the yard - he actually had a great day running around the yard off leash with me and the kids. attacking the hose - getting wet - just having fun!!! i wanted to take pictures but didn't - i told myself i had all summer to take pictures of him playing in the water... little did i know.

we walked to the front yard - cuz in my hand to keep his attention - when a stranger was walking down our street - i was able to keep his attention for a few minutes - and then he bolted - it was like someone was holding a steak on the other side of the street - there was no getting him back - no yelling - no squecking of the cuz - nothing!

our breeder and trainer came out and we burried him in our back yard - thats what my daughter wanted.

no more sloppy wet good morning kissed - and no happy man waiting for me to come home. i went through withdrawl when i was away from him for a couple hours - its been days now - and i hurt!!!

i am so sorry mr. man - I LOVE YOU!!!!!

Ohhhh I am so, so very sorry. Wishing you some small measure of peace and comfort during your pain. Such a handsome boy he truly was, and he looks like he was such a happy fellow, too. Rest in peace, run free, sweet, well-loved Mr. Man.

I'm so sorry! Those are great pictures, too.

Balto is the same way with people. I worry so much about it.

Re: we said good bye to our mr. man

Oh I am sooo sorry!!! I cannot imagine your feelings right now. I can understand you are probably blaming yourself but plesae allow yourself some freedom to understand that your expectations were that he would pay attention as you were training.

He was a beautiful little guy and I am sorry for your heartbreak.
