This morning mom was woken up my loud crying coming from her step father.....it turns out that her best Dog friend Milo was struck by a truck this morning and killed on impact. When her step father went running out into the road the driver in the truck turned around and came to help but it was too late the man said there was nothing he could have done, a woman in front of him had perviously swerved out of the way and the truck didnt see him in time The man embraced moms step father, and cried himself it was absolutely heart breaking. When mom was informed he had passed she went out to the porch where her step father was holding him and crying hysterically "he's dead" he cried "it was all my fault" in fact it wasnt he had gotten into a car seconds before to move it, and milo has never been known to go into the road. Mom told him it wasnt his fault and petted milo softy... His body was cold as ice...and mom lost it. Soon after she picked some flowers and waited as her stepfather dug Milos grave. He said "the lord sure has a funny sense of humor huh?" Mom tried to force a smile " all the poor dog wanted to do was play and be loved, but instead he gets killed" he continued. This made mom cry... When he had been buried, mom placed some flowers on his grave and her step father said a prayer "dear lord, we dont know why you have taken milo today...and we probably never will, but we pray that he is up there with you and the rest of his family that loves him dearly, and although we dont understand now, we are glad he's in a better place, Amen" Mom has had Milo since she was young. He was a toy fox terrier, min pin mix, and he was the best dog anyone could ever wish for. Even if he did dribble when he got excited. Mom got milo when he was just a puppy....She really really loved him...my mom is heart broken...she has been crying all day and I am not sure what to do. Butters is also very very upset....Milo and him were best buddies....my mommas heart is broken...and she doesnt know what to do....as she is writing this entry for me I can see the tears welling up in her eyes...I cant stand to see her hurting. I ask that all of you give her and Milo your best prayers, He will forever be in our hearts and will always be remembered. Mom loved him so much...
