A sad ending: Spud died in drowning accident

Not all CM Dog Alerts have happy resolutions

Kathryn GisclairHi, thank you for posting our email on Spud who went missing on Monday, May 23rd when the severe storms rolled through.

Unfortunately, Spud died a tragic death caused by drowning. He ran to a vacant house that had a swimming pool with a deck attached to it and the house. The pool was dark from being uncleaned for a long time and the owners did not take the plug out of it so it would stay drained.

Please folks, for the sake of animals and children. If you have a residence that is vacant with an in-ground pool or a deck, please pull the plug and keep it drained. Also make sure if you have a fence around it and make sure it is locked and secure so these things don't happen.

RIP ole boy. We will never forget you and always love you. Thank you for the unconditional love you gave to all of us. You will be sadly missed by your family and friends. -Kathryn GisclairSo sorry about Spud. We hope your tips help prevent another tragic ending. -EW
