  1. Just horrific and beyond unfair for all concerned. I pray to any god that’s listening that the little puppy didn’t suffer.

    Every parent’s worst nightmare.

  2. Please – if anyone knows this family, please let us know how (if any) we can support them right now. My heart aches for all involved. My wish is that the community can rally together in support right now…

  3. Through tragedy, this family has been robbed of the greatest gift possible. My heart aches. I am so very sorry for their unbearable pain and incredible, unimaginable loss.

  4. Why wasn’t he air lifted? Also wondering why they didn’t take him to Oakland Children’s Hospital? Maybe John Muir is more equipped??
