hi everyone, this is my first time on this site. the best dog i have ever had was murdered today by my neighbors teenage son. and to add insult to injury my husband was the one who went to jail. how can we live in a world were a neighbors cow can destroy your garden and you cant do anything about it but apparently its ok to shot a familys pet for even being on your property?:mad::(

I'm sorry this happened to you but without full information on what happened exactly and why I'm not sure I can be too sympathetic. Why was your dog on someone else's property? Was the dog doing something such as harrassing livestock? Why did your husband go to jail?

my neighbors dont have any livestock and my dog was playing with my kids. he ran across the corner of their yard. my husband went to jail for felony menacing because he had a gun that gun was for protection we were having a family bbq and we heard gun shots thats all

In that case, even though technically the dog should have been on leash the instant it left your yard, the neighbor was way out of line. If I was you I'd file a complaint with the police. In most places it's illegal to just shoot a dog, especially one that's obviously a pet and that was not behaving in a threatening manner. At the very least they should have done something about the teenager shooting a gun in a residential area. It's bad enough that he unnecessarily shot a dog, what if he'd missed? One of your kids could have been shot.

One thing that could help you through this difficult time is to do positive things, such as trying to get changes to the laws so that this would not happen to someone else, making a memory book about your dog, or donating to your local shelter in your dog's name.
