Tony - pup is gone.  He escaped from the fenced in yard here at Dad's house earlier this morning and was hit by a car and killed. 

He was quite the escape artist, got out up here so many, many times.

I've just returned from a local vet, where I took him for group cremation and burial.  Just 3 years of age, only with me a bit over 2.5 months.  I can't believe this.  Two hours ago I was in bed cuddling with him and the others.

Oh Sandie.I don't know what to say.

Its such a horrible thing to have happened,but he knew love from you and a life all dogs dream of in his last few months.

If not for you his life would probably have ended long before this and he would never have had the chance you gave him.

I'm so sorry events took the course they did. Abby has escaped from here when the window cleaners left the gate open and workmen have opened doors unexpectedly .It can happen to anyone.

Oh Sandie, I'm so very sorry. There just aren't words, except that you gave him the best few months of his life. I'm sure he would never trade the freedom and love he received for anything in the world. ((((Hugs))))

Oh Sandie!  I'm so sorry to hear this.  No many how hard we try they are clever little fluffs and will find their way.  You've had a hard year.  Take comfort from the fact that you made Tony's last months great ones.  He couldn't have had a better Momma.

OMG I'm so shocked.....  Crying Crying Crying  Sandie, I'm so sorry for your loss.
Short though it may have been, the time he was with you & the flock (& the clowder)
must've been 'heaven' to him.  And now he's in Heaven angel, with many new playmates.

Thinking of you ((((((((hugs)))))))

I'm very sorry to hear this heartbreaking news, Sandie. I don't know what to say to make you feel better, but I do know that if not for you Tony could have been picked up by some really bad people.

I've seen and read all the pictures and stories you posted about Tony and the gang, he must have the best 2.5 months of his life.

Accident happens, and sometimes there isn't much we can do to avoid.

Take care.

I also saw this on FB and was heartbroken for you.  Like everyone and myself included, Tony's best part of his life was with you.  You gave him a home and love and a purpose.  RIP sweetl little Tony.   How are the rest of the crew doing?  I know that you mentioned that you let each one sniff him before taking him to the vet- what a great thing to do for all of them- hard for you, but the right thing.  Hugh hugs to you sweet lady.

I didn't post much on here early yesterday; later, I did post more on Fb, but for those not on there:

Good-by Tony-pup. May God bless you.
Tony escaped from the fenced in back yard here at Dad's house early this morning This was not the first time he'd escaped, nor the 6th, he was quite the little escape artist. This time, he managed to open the gate! Not done that before. He was hit by a car and killed instantly. I found him by the side of the road, whomever hit him at least moved him to the side. Feel badly for that person, too, they likely never saw him till the last moment. He had no collar or tags or harness on as he escaped from the back yard, so nothing else the person could do.

Tony was just 3 years old, lived with me a bit over 2.5 months. I really can't believe this, what an awful morning. When I found him (after looking for 45 minutes), I picked him up and drove him home, set him on the lawn, and took each of the other 3 out one at a time to say their goodbys. Took him to a local vet here for group cremation and burial. All over and done and back home at 9

****
Tasha is missing him quite a bit, Tony was her play pal.  They had great play battles together and I kept meaning to capture that on camera; I never realized time was so short.  Of the 3, she was the one who sniffed at him the longest yesterday morning, and then looked at me with such a sad look.  She has whined several times since.  I have only just realized, I'll have to break the news to all the folks / dogs we see regularly at 'farm walk,' Bridgham Farm, when we travel back home.  Skippy, Tony's BFF, and his family, oh dear. 

I didn't sleep much all night, just have images playing over and over in my mind.  I TRY to picture him as he was ALIVE, happy and smiling, that cuddly pup with the huge paws, but it is so hard to do that just now.  I was in shock most of yesterday, today I am finally moving to the next stage, the tearing and crying.  I've lost many pets in my 55 years, old age, illness, NEVER have I lost one like this.  It really is horrid.  I was home from the local vet yesterday morning and just sitting staring blankly for half an hour before I realized I was covered in blood, had to go change.

This whole episode is a nightmare, I wish I would wake up and find it is not true.
