A very devastating situation took place today that touched our family, especially my brother-in-law. I am hoping The Leader -Herald will print this letter due to the amount of disrespect that was played out to my family member. Around 8:30 to 9 a.m. this morning (Sunday), I received a phone text from my brother-in-law's friend that someone hit his dog and she died. But the part that bothers me the most is that the person driving the car did not stop. My brother-in-law has had Pin for 11 years and treated her as his own child. She went with him for car rides, camping, sleeping at his feet, watching TV, and any activity he did, she was right by his side. She was a calm, beautiful dog who had a very gentle nature and kindred soul. Today, his heart broke because he had to bury his "child." Eventually, as anyone, he will get beyond the mourning process, but no other dog will replace this gentle spirit.
