For J.D. [Nov. 27th, 2006|10:07 pm]
Last Wednesday, my dog J.D. was struck and killed by a car during a thunderstorm. No one was home at the time as we were all celebrating thanksgiving in Sacramento, and didn't find out until Friday morning, when a neighbor discovered him. J.D. always was terrified of thunder; one time he ran away for a week after lightning struck a tree on the property. I went up to Redding with my brother and his family, and laid J.D. to rest next to the stumpy remains of that tree. Hopefully lightning won't strike twice there.

He lived a long full life, his later years shared with two other mischievous dogs. I'm sure he's ineptly chasing squirrels somewhere.


The bestest dog evar

Sorry to hear that, William. At least he lived a long life but it still, of course, hurts. I had a bird for 15+ years and that hurt a lot. Maybe not a dog but he was like a dog to us.

I'm sure your dog is in a better place now and chasing squirrels like you say.
