BUDDY 6 years of sunshine - rest in peace My parent's dog, Buddy, was killed today by a loose dog. My father was walking him when he approached a loose husky. The husky grabbed Buddy. Dad carried Buddy home and got in the car with my Mom to head to the vet. On the way, they spotted the loose dog and followed it to a man in a car who told them that the dog was his and he had escaped from his place of business. He, of course, said that his dog was friendly and had never done anything like this before. He said he would take care of the vet bills and gave my parents his card. Buddy was given a total going over at the vet's, who found three puncture wounds but said that everything else looked fine. He loaded him up with antibiotics and gave him a painkiller. Mom called me around lunchtime to tell me about the attack. Buddy was still bleeding some and seemed to be traumatized. When I got home from work this evening there was a message on my answering machine to call my Mom when I got in. I called her and she told me that Buddy was dead. He just fell over and died. My Mom and Dad are in shock, the vet was shocked. The vet feels that his heart might not have been able to take the stress and gave out. My pup has been feeling under the weather for the last week and now I'm petrified that something might happen to her, as well. It's not logical, but I almost feel like she might 'catch' Buddy's death. We're going to miss the little 'Bud-man'.
