Grieving the Perfect Puppy

Taunya, Rhoda, and their two little ones, Abe and Iris went with me on a long walk down the beach toward the pier. We saw lots of fish jumping and made the comment, something big is under there chasing them to the surface. Just a little farther and we saw dolphins fishing.

 It was 9:00 am when we started back and already the sun was burning down brightly turning this pleasant morning hot. We were worried about Iris getting too much sun so didn't stay to watch the dolphins or get better pictures. By the time we got back to mom's condo, everyone else was just getting out onto the beach. We could not stay but told them, fish are jumping out of the water coming this way and we saw dolphins fishing. Well it was more than dolphins chasing the fish. There were SHARKS, coming right into the shallow water. Michelle, Shaeya's mom, took the pictures below.

 Needless to say everyone got out of the water. We spent the rest of the day by the pool. It wasn't until we came inside that we found out Hux, Phil and Anna's perfect puppy was hit by a car and killed. Phil and Anna broke the news to us by sending the picture below of his grave
We are so sorry for Braelyn, Taegan and Kensley, Hux was such a huge part of their family.

Such a hard loss to accept at such a young age. Tomorrow morning Taunya and Abe will need a ride to the airport. We are sorry to see them go but thrilled Taunya was able to come on this, our very first girls trip. She needs to leave a day early as  the guys are all up in Chicago for the Cub/Cards game tomorrow. David took the picture below and sent it to Rhoda and Sarah.
David, Lee and Nolan are sharing a hotel room in down town Chicago up on the 25th floor. Ben is flying in from Dallas tomorrow to join them for the game and Taunya must be home to care for their other 3 children.
