All in the Family


Labrador Retriever / Miniature Schnauzer

I got Autumn on Halloween 2008. She quickly became the love of my life. I had never been as happy as I was with her. She was like my shadow, went everywhere I went. Autumn was my baby; she was absolutely perfect. I could have never imagined a better dog for myself. On June 3, 2009 I was on my way back to my hometown after leaving school. Autumn was just happy to be going for a ride, she always loved to go bye-bye. I never expected what was about to happen. While I was paying attention to the road, Autumn accidentally stepped on the windown button, rolling her window all the way down without me even noticing. The next thing I saw when I turned to look at her was her little rear-end almost over the edge. I tried to grab for her, but I missed her and grabbed the rope part of her retractable leash. When the handle of the leash hit my hand it came unlocked and 16 feet of rope almost ripped off my finger but I honestly didn't notice at the time. My next thought was just that I couldn't watch her get dragged behind my truck so I threw the handle of her leash out my window. I can still see it replaying over and over in my head. Autumn's face hit the road then she bounced off into the grass like she was nothing more than a basketball. I pulled my truck into the next driveway and ran toward my baby girl screaming her name. She started to wag her tail when she heard me, then she was just looking at me unable to move anything other than her tail, she blinked a few more times and then she was gone. I never knew I could be so heartbroken and miss something so much, but that little girl was my world. I miss her everyday, more than anyone can imagine. She can never be replaced in my heart. Thank you to those who have taken the time to read this biography.

So sorry about autumn. My little Izzi (who is Havanese), looks so much like her, in the face. You can check her out if you can get to my profile. Again so, so sorry. I understand how much you loved her.
