Gwen was out in the yard and came running in and said Chuy got hit by a car.....I started to run down the driveway..which seemed to take forever as our driveway is very long...as soon as I saw him laying in the street I started to cry.....I was in my pjs on the side of the road crying and trying to get the cars that were wizzing by to stop..... No one was stopping and another car actually hit him again....I screamed and was bawling at that point......neither of the cars that hit our pup stopped....so so rude.....
Finally a lady in a mini van stopped...I ran out in the street and scooped up his lifeless body.....I started back up the driveway carrying our Chuy and bawling my head off...I went and sat in my pjs in the dirt under the oak tree holding him while chad dug his grave. Thankfully Chad was home.... He just got home from a business trip. Chad said to me much later...I was surprised you picked him up out of the street....I said....I had to..I couldn't leave our dog out there.
As chad dug the grave I sat there holding our dog ....looking down at him and realizing he was never going to do his sweet doggie smile again... And seeing his limp body in my arms. I felt the full impact of death to my core.
At one point while chad was digging he said...honey you can lay him down...I said no I can't....so I held him until it was time for him to go in his grave.....once the grave was dug I carefully laid him in it in a cozy position. I couldn't watch while chad covered him up....thank God he didn't suffer.
Gwen cried a bit when it happend, because she saw it happen....she never loved Chuy...nor did Chad but they are both sad for Chuy..And Gabby.... Gwen seems to be fine.
Graham cried a lot and said to Chad...daddy we are a family with out a
Gabby was thankfully at the high school at baton/majorette practice.
We had 3 hours to wait to tell her that her baby ....chu chu was gone.
As a parent you dread the day you have to tell your child news that is going to break their heart.....the closer it got to three the sicker I felt.
My in laws arrived and were greeted by Graham ...who blurted it out before they were even up the front steps. It broke my mil's heart...she is a dog lover and liked chuy and felt horrid for gabby.
Chad and I went to pick Gabby up. I got out of the car so I could hug her.... she walked up all happy and talking about how hot and tired she was.... I hatred that I had to devastate her....I told her and she cried hard..I hugged her and cried with her...chad held us both. She asked a few questions in between sobs...she is doing ok .
Not everyone loved Chuy because he he was hyper, jumpy and yappy at times. .....we did...he was our pup and we will miss him a ton.
