So our dog Ginger died last night. As near as we can tell, she must have eaten something poisonous. Given that she's always been an obsessive eater who eats anything and everything she can find on the ground--I've caught her eating kitty litter, dirt, leaves, and shards of a broken terra cotta pot--I guess it was just a matter of time before she got into something bad.

I always complained about her and how much she annoyed me, but the truth is I was really very fond of that little orc. I miss the way she sneezed when she was excited (which was pretty much always) and the way she snored like steam locomotive. Plus, she was gift from my mom, so that's a whole other bag of sadness of regret. The munchkin was asleep when it happened (thank god) so we told her this morning when she got up. She was really upset, so we let her stay home from school today. She bounced back pretty quickly, though. Kids are lucky like that.

I'm so sorry Sus. Our dog Otis died about a month ago, so I know how you feel. I'm sending hugs. ::hugs::

Oh no! I'm so, so sorry to hear this! Hugs to you, Mr. Sus and the munchkin. Poor Rosie's lost her playmate, too. Poor Nix family.

I'm really sorry, Sus. There's just no easy way for that to happen. Hope you and the kidlet are okay.

I lost a dog the same way (eating some unknown thing that was poisonous). I think it makes it harder because you don't expect it. My sympathies to you.

I am so sorry. I've lost 2 dogs in the last 6 months and it is a really hard thing to explain to my 2yo. We just repeat this mantra: "Maggie died. Caleb died. Wyatt's our dog now" She recognizes them from pictures, which is nice.

Anyway, hope peace comes to your family soon.
