Christmas Eve Nightmare

It is with the heaviest of hearts today that I must post this and ask for prayers for my family at this time. Yesterday 12/23 at around 4:00 pm my dad was taking garbage out and took our two family companions out with him. They spotted something that interested them and they toon off (not a common occurance). The roam the 7 acres investigating any and all other animal leads. Typically Miss Hailey (13 month old Golden baby) and her fearless best buddy Angus (5 year old party cocker) would return within the hour. Rarely were they gone longer... I stopped by to visit after last minute shopping around 7 and they had not returned. My mother and father scoured the neighborhood every half an hour. I then start on the search. Around 11, we admitted defeat for the night and presumed someone had picked them up and would be calling soon. When my phone rang at 12:45 am and it was mother I thought it would be to tell me they had come back... Not the case. Miss Hailey and Angus traveled very far and were very lost and the Pennsylvania Turnpike claimed their lives last night. I cannot even begin to console my family, I'm not sure anyone or anything can. My mother is beyond devastated, as anyone would be. My father is riddled with guilt. This is the first time their house is dogless in decades. It is the most deafening silence imaginable. My only wish for Christmas this year is peace for them and that nobody has to endure this pain today or any day for that matter. RIP Hailey and Angus. God Bless you all.

Speak to my baby softly, please
with a hug and warm hello.
He's a special gift to you, dear Lord
from me-who loved him so.

Thank y'all. I'm having a hard time trying to hold them together that it wasn't because they were bad owners. It wasn't intentional.

Speak to my baby softly, please
with a hug and warm hello.
He's a special gift to you, dear Lord
from me-who loved him so.
