We lost our ZZ on Tuesday night. She, Skittle and Henri got out via the garage I was out of the house with Hazel, so we don’t know how long they had been gone. We started searching for them when we noticed Henri was outside.
Within a half hour we found out ZZ and Skittle were hit by vehicle at 50th Street and Browndale, a busy street about 4 blocks from our home. Two good samaritans stopped, however the driver of the vehicle that hit them did not. One person knew exactly where the emergency vet was located and brought the dogs there, and the other person started driving through our neighborhood to find someone looking for dogs. They found my son, and he immediately called me and I drove to the hospital. I was able to be with ZZ before she passed. Skittle had pelvis surgery Wednesday and is expected to fully recover. Hopefully she will be home Friday.
ZZ was my heart dog, my once in a lifetime dog. I’m am thankful for so many wonderful memories, especially our last specialty. We let the dogs sleep with us during shows, and she curled up close to me every night. We accomplished so much in her short life. I think she is one of the most highly accomplished Border Terriers – with a bronze grand championship, master earthdog title and master agility titles. We were on our way to a MACH title with 9 double Q’s and 250 points. She also had two litters, and I’m so thankful to have kept Skittle and Hazel from each litter.
One of my favorite memories is her little single bark after I told her tunnel – like she was telling me “got it” – as she would go zooming into the tunnel.
She loved me to no end and I loved her. My heart is broken and I miss her terribly.
Oh, Cyndi…words can’t express how sorry I am that you lost ZZ. She was absolutely lovely. We never have the time that we want with our “Special” ones or any of our dogs. ZZ certainly made you proud at the BTCA National Specialty. Take care…my thoughts and prayers for healing are headed your way. Best, Sandy and the Happy Hobbits Gang

Oh, Cyndi. I just read this and tears are running down my cheeks. I am so very, very sorry. She was such a special little girl, and together you shared so many happy border terrier days. We loved watching the two of you together. Peace to you and ZZ.
My thoughts are with you at this time. May God Bless you and help you through this tragedy.

Cyndi, I am so sorry to hear about ZZ. She was so very special.
I hope that sharing this loss with people who understand will help to lighten your burden at this difficult time. There simply are no words that will make it better, but hopefully time will pass quickly until the mention of her name will bring a smile rather than a tear. Glad Skittle will be ok.
So very sorry
Very very sorry – I know how these little guys work their way into your heart and soul, & losing one is incredibly painful. Shame on the driver who did not stop, & praises to the good Samaritans who did so much.
Oh Cyndi, I just read this and I’m in tears for you. I am so very sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you.
