I previously talked about Rascal.
The electric fence failed repeatedly. Two batteries and a collar replacement later, the fence failed for the final time. Rascal got loose and was hit by a car.
We cried a lot.
On vacation we visited my mom's grave. On her headstone was a picture of her.
It was like having a grave for Rascal there, too.
I didn't want my kids to start crying so I didn't show them.
