I know who did it. It was the man across the street from my next door neighbor. My dog was at the edge of the street. This lowlife shot towards my neighbors house at my dog (the most gentle, personality filled black lab any one would ever have. The kind of dog who would let a cat eat out of his bowl and not snap). I'm prosecuting and so are my neighbors. One of my neighbors is afraid to leave the house, she is so afraid of this deranged man sitting on his porch, with his gun, drinking, at 2 in the morning waiting for something to shoot.
The officer I talked to says that this scum has killed other dogs before (and he told the officer that he'd do it again with a **** attitude like it makes him some kind of bad-***). The fact that he shot towards a house might be the thing that finally gets him put behind bars.
Just the image of Ziggy running towards me, like I would save him and get rid of his pain, and collapsing short of me...brings me to tears as I'm typing this.
It's so, so hard being 30 yards from the person who did this and not being able to do anything, having to wait for the legal system. I can't wait to get him behind bars and to move away from this place.
Edit - I'm sorry Adam, I probably should have made my own thread for this. A thread full of multiple dog deaths has to be one of the saddest threads in existence. I definitely know your pain when you found your dog unresponsive. Sorry if bringing this thread back has reminded you of that pain.
