    He was killed by a yellow lab in my yard two days ago. Jake would have been 8 years old today. My baby, my best friend. No leash laws, so this dog and his owner gets away with it. The neighbor hasn't even come over to say he was sorry. His dogs still run the neighborhood, bullying everyone. Getting into garbage, eating road kill, going in fish pond and destroying it. This wasn't his first offense either, this killer killed his Bitch's puppies a few months back I learned. Why was I never told?

    I'm in a lot of pain. Thanks, had to get it out of me.

    OMG, Terry! I'm so, so sorry. What an awful thing to have happen. How can the neighbor get away with it? Even if no leash laws? There has to be something you can do. Omg, this is so sad. {hugs}

    I feel for you. I know the hurt too well. I'm sorry the loss was a violent one on top of that hurt.

    Because even technically he was in my yard it was what they call in between. He was taking a crap, I saw him, I saw the dog coming and even though that dog never showed aggression to my dog it has me. I ran inside to get shoes on. I came out and my dog was gone. I didn't know where he was. I started calling him, went over where he was...then I followed blood. My dog was lying dead on his side now, and the dog started after me because he was guarding his kill. I ran inside and called another neighbor who helped hold that dog at bay while I retrieved my dog. My word only that he was in my yard! I told them look at the blood trail, they said they would come out today, it has rained all fucking day!!!!!!!!!

    Did you happen to take any pictures before it rained? Does the neighbor live right next to you or a few doors down?

    pine trees with pine needles between us 20 feet deep. He was right on the edge on my side, exposed. No I took picture of my dog after I carried him home on my porch. I was in shock, hysteric's, didn't know what to do. I lost my baby.

    If I could give you a big, long bear hug right now, I would.

    I am so very sorry.

    Thank you, I never thought it would hurt his much. I think I would be better if I didn't see him dead and have to bury him. Now it's hard to see my pretty dog how he was, I only see him after death.

    Oh Terry.. I'm so sorry. I wish there was something to do or say to take some of your hurt away. I don't know if you have any chance of getting justice under the legal system, but you might look into a civil suit to force your neighbors into keeping their dog under control. A civil suit should draw their homeowners insurance into things and at least might raise their premiums. I know that I'd personally take satisfaction in screwing with them in anyway that I could. But then, you're probably much nicer than I am.
