Our puppy was shot to death!!

Lucy, our 6 month old GSD, was shot to death. I posted her on the lost and found last week when she ran from home. She took off around noon last Tuesday with our 10 year old Chesapeake Bay Retriever. Sam ran after deer in the woods behind our home and Lucy happily ran with him. He came back immediately, (too old to run far) but Lucy was too happy and kept running. As soon as she ran my daughters got on 4 wheelers and searched the woods and I took the truck out to find her. No luck. For a week we have been putting posters out, ads in the paper, phone calls, etc. Nothing. Today a man calls and says he thinks he found our dog. He meets my husband and me and takes us to a road near our house that is mostly wooded. There is our dog with a bullet through her head laying about 10 feet off the road. I am totally furious at whoever did this to her. She wouldn't hurt a fly. Very timid girl who would have run if she saw people. The police think she was shot from the road. SICK SICK people. I know I am rambling but I can't fathom this. She was a baby. My baby. The best dog I have ever had. My 4 daughters adored her. What is wrong with people?
We love you Lucy!!!!

OMG Shelly, I am so sorry for your loss! I can't even imagine what you are going through. To lose your baby and in such a horrific way! My prayers are with you and your family tonight. I hope whatever sick person did this gets caught! Again, my deepest sympathy to you.
I am so very sorry for your loss and for the traumatic nature of your dog's death. I hope you will be able to find peace and comfort in the memories of the time you shared together.
So sorry for you and your family's loss. What a beautiful pup, may she rest in peace
No doubt she knows how much she was loved by you and your family

Oh, that's terrible!! I am very sorry, can't imagine how hard it is for you. I don't know what is wrong with some people, I hope they will pay for this!
Shelly, so VERY SORRY to hear about Lucy she was a black beauty.
This is so sad and sick
I have seen your ads for her in our paper. I'm not far from you, where abouts did you find her?
I wish these sickos could be caught.
Maybe offer a reward for any info?

God speed LUCY

Thank you all for your posts. I know you all love your dogs the way we loved Lucy. We are talking about posting fliers with a reward being offered for information. I just have a feeling it was kids and they turn on each other pretty easy when the pressure is on them. I would love to find out who did this to our girl but am afraid of what my husband would do to them!
She was found on McLain Rd. right off of McMullen Allen in Paris Twsp. Portage County. A very rural one and a half lane road with houses that are few and far between the woods. Sick Sick people to do this to a sweet loving dog.
I have finally got all the girls to sleep. After tears and more tears. This night has been very draining on the whole family. We buried her in the backyard with a toy and her leash. (the girls insisted). Prayers were said and tears were shed. Sam (the Chessie) laid down beside the grave. Made me think of Dan and Anne. More tears. Wow. I better go to bed.
Gosh, it hurts enough to lose a dog but to hear about one being killed on purpose is really upsetting. I'm so sorry for your loss, I can't imagine how much it must hurt. I hope they catch the scumbag who shot her.

Rest in Peace Little Lucy!

And to think, they refer to our dogs as animals. Most animals are of the bipedal variety! I'll think of Lucy often!
Oh no, I am so very sorry! I am so, SO angry & horrified reading this. My deepest condolences to you and your family. It is such a needless loss. Humans can be so **** sick!

Run Free, Lucy. She was a very beautiful dog, you can see she had a beautiful soul in her eyes.

Healing thoughts,
My heart goes out to you and your family. Because of some cowardly act you have been robbed of a presious family member. When I read how Chessie laid down by the grave, it made me think of when we lost our little girl and Larka laid at her grave.
Give Chessie extra hugs, it must be hard for her to comprehend the vicioiusness shown by people.
My condolenses to you and your girls.
Sweet Lucy, you were a beautiful pup!

My sincerest condolences on your most tragic loss. This is indeed one of the worst ways to loose your baby, and I only hope that you find the
who did it, and soon, so that you and your family can begin the healing process.

I'd personally like to take them out back and give them the same treatment

I lost a dog like this before, I am so sorry, I know the combination of hopelessness and anger that is coursing through you now. Hopefully someone will turn the idiot in who did this.
My heart hurts for you, my cheeks, tear stained, quiver.
What a horrible story! May we find peace. Amen!
I am so sorry, that is unbelievable,my prayers are with you!
OMG; i'm soooo sorry; what a horrible thing for you and lucy!
Shelly, I cannot even think of any words I could say right now that would even begin to make you feel better. I am absolutely horrified after reading this that someone could do that to a happy puppy, or to any dog. Your family and sweet Lucy will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Lend Me a Pup

I will lend to you for awhile, a German Shepherd pup, God said,

For you to love him while he lives and mourn for him when he's dead.

Maybe for twelve or fourteen years, or maybe two or three

But will you, 'till I call him back, take care of him for me.

He'll bring his charms to gladden you and should his stay be brief

You'll always have his memories as solace for your grief.

I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return

But there are lessons taught below I want this pup to learn.

I've looked the whole world over in search of teachers true

And from the folk that crowd's life's land I have chosen you.

Now will you give him all your love Nor think the labor vain,

Nor hate me when I come to take my Shepherd back again.

I fancied that I heard them say "Dear Lord Thy Will be Done,"

For all the joys this Shepherd will bring, the risk of grief we'll run.

We'll shelter him with tenderness we'll love him while we may

And for the happiness we've known forever grateful stay.

But should you call him back much sooner than we've planned,

We'll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand.

If, by our love, we've managed, your wishes to achieve

In memory of him we loved, to help us while we grieve,

When our faithful bundle departs this world of strife,

We'll have yet another German Shepherd and love him all his life.
