HeartacheWe had our little chocolate brown, sweet as could be Dashaund for a little over two years. We have a 5 year old daughter and she is an only child, we cannot have anymore children. So our Copper was particularly special to her. Her best friend. Our daughter was gone with her grandparents out of town. We have been painting our house and doing other home improvements this summer, so while she was gone we really tried to get alot done. I had been painting all day and my husband got home from work and helped me finish up what I was working on. While he was finishing, I decided I would go get dinner. Copper was wondering around my car and my hubby hollered to me to take him with me. I never took him with me, he was such a home body dog. And when my daughter was gone, he usually laid in his bed and pouted. I got home with the food, and he was so quiet, I totally forgot about him. We noticed later he wasn't around, ran around the neighborhood looking for him. Then all the sudden it hit me. I ran to the car in a panic. He was under a seat, and he just looked like he was sleeping. I through him in the bathtub screaming, he still seemed alive. I tried to run cold water on him, do cpr for about 45 minutes and husband kept saying to me, he's gone. I was completely devastated for days. My daughter was such a trooper about it. I was so worried she would be so sad for a long time. She is taking it in stride. I wasn't going to, but I told her the truth about what happened. I called my parents screaming and crying and that's when I learned my Dad had accidently ran over my childhood dog. He didn't have the heart to tell us he had done it back then, and in a wierd way it made me feel better. I finally feel like it's gonna be ok, even though I miss him everyday. It's been a month.
