one of the worst things to come home to

Fortunately not me, but my night surveillance officer James. He called and asked me if he could come in late tonight, which was no problem at all for me to stay late. He told me that he and his wife had come home from Moscow (most likely shopping as taxes are lower in Idaho than in Washington) and found their dog dead. She was a border collie cross and had somehow gotten a plastic bag from off the dinner table wrapped around her head and suffocated while they were out. As a pet owner myself I just can't imagine.
He said it was weird though because the bag wasn't even tight on her head, if she'd been standing he wouldn't have had to even touch it hard to knock it off her head and there was space. I said she probably panicked when her eyes got covered, shook her head and hit the table, knocking herself out and then died. It's the only thing that makes sense since she and Tank (their pug) were alone in the apartment at the time. And I can't imagine James would leave the door unlocked with all of him computer equipment in there.

So sad. He says he wants to work, but I've put myself on call for tomorrow just in case. It was his wife's dog so who knows how she's holding up. *sighs*

Ahh, you've just confirmed one of my fears that I thought was me being over anxious. So sorry for their pain. I hate to say it, but something like that never goes away completely.

I think it's something that every animal owner/parent fears. It's just so sad.
He never called me, so he's working tonight. Wish I could figure out if it meant he was holding up okay or absolutely heartbroken. Guys are so hard to read.
