Died October 24th, 2002

Meaning: Celestial Spirit

Last night my friend and I witnessed the hit and run death of an orphan golden retriever puppy. She was a little girl about 7 or 8 months old. The car that hit her just kept going and I was devastated and did not know what to do. I ran a few blocks to the Fire Department and banged on the window to see if someone could help me. Three fire fighters came with me to the scene, where my friend was holding and comforting the baby. At about the same time we arrived a fire truck drove by and stopped to see what was going on. I ran into the house to get a towel to move her and wrap her with.

She had massive head injuries and was bleeding profusely. We moved her to the side and I asked if there was anything we could do for her.. Or if we could take her somewhere, however, they said she did not have a chance. I held her paw and rubbed her back to comfort her. I was crying and talking to her. She was unresponsive but she still had a pulse. The firefighters called someone from animal control to come out and put her down. I held her as she left this world.

She had no collar, and her owners were no where to be found.

I wanted to write this memorial so that no one would forget the sweet life that passed. I named her "Deva" for celestial spirit.

I am grieving for you sweet "Deva" and love you with all my heart.
