This is sooo sad...

Today I heard from my son-in-law that beautiful sweet neighbourhood Boxer Babs died tragically while playing on the beach with her owner.
I found an article about her death in the local newspaper this evening. The article mentioned that she was the fourth dog this year that had died on the beach.
Babs and her owner were playing with a ball near the beach bars.
Her owner threw a ball, Babs ran to fetch it, when a vehicle from the Municipality came driving very fast and ran her over. The vehicle drove on and stopped some 30 meters further. The man claimed he hadn't seen Babs. How can anyone not notice a Boxer?!?!?
Babs died half an hour later in her owner's arms.
Babs was still quite young and reminded me a lot of my beloved Cody.
Last week was the last time I saw her. She always came running to greet me in a typical Boxer way. So sweet...
I am very sad that she will not greet me anymore.
Of course I very much feel for the family who misses her dearly.
Another Boxer angel went to heaven. I'm sure Cody will show her around.
