Dear Human Owners,
We know you must be worried about us, and we want you
to know that we are OK. We're not sure exactly why
we couldn't get back into the car after you stopped
and let us out on the highway.
It was dark and we were frightened. I think maybe
that is why we couldn't move quickly enough to get back into the
car before it started up and took you away from us.
The man who found us was nice, but he seemed very sad. He was
amazed that such a healthy, well-fed, cute-as-the-dickens litter
of black and white mixed-Boxer puppies our age would be thrown
out like trash.
Not long after you left a pickup truck drove by very
fast. My sister, she is the one you called Boopsie, remember?
Always saying she was so cute and clumsy? She couldn't get out
of the way in time. I think the lights must have blinded her. She
just whimpered once before it hit her. Then she was very still,
and didn't make a sound.
I begged her and begged her to get up and follow me, I
told her I thought I could find our way back home. But she
wouldn't move so I left her there beside the road.
Then I started down that same road that the car you were in took
you. I only got about 100 yards down the road from Boopsie when
a car pulled out to pass another one. I could only stare in
That's where I was laying the next morning when the sad man, I
know he was crying when he picked me up, put me in the back of
his truck next to Boopsie. I wanted to lick his face to make him
feel better but I couldn't move. The sad man said now we were in
Doggie Heaven, and wouldn't ever have to depend on our human
parents to care for us ever again. He said we were probably
better off for that.
We hope you will be ok without us. Maybe Boopsie and I were just
too much of a burden for you, and you'll be happier without us.
The man who dug this nice bed for Boopsie and I on the side of a
gently sloping hill, one overlooking a river bed that is millions of
years old, he patted the ground down gently with his shovel to
He said between his tears that he would be glad to use thatsame
shovel to get you ready for your own grave. Don't worry about us
any longer. We are fine. We were frightened, and confused, and
lonely for a short while, but now we are at peace.
