Guinness - Gone but not forgotten

I have some very sad news about Guinness. Friday night while I was out, Guinness and Sarah escaped from the backyard. When I came home around 10pm they were nowhere to be found. Then a few minutes later I received a call from Animal Control. They had found Guinness. He had been hit by a car just outside my neighborhood and unfortunately didn't survive.    They did bring Guinness by the house so I could at least say goodbye to him. I still had not heard anything about Sarah. The next morning I was out searching the neighborhood trying to track her down. A friend of mine came over to help me and by 10am we finally found her. She was very happy to see me and very tired. I'm not sure she realizes that Guinness is not coming back.

I just wanted to let everyone know about the recent events and that Sarah is safe and sound at home. Thank you all for your kind words, thoughts and prayers.

The Broken Chain -
"We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone;
for part of us went with you the day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide,
and though we cannot see you, you are always by our side."

With the loss of Guinness, I'm removing a few of my 101 items in reference to him:
94. Work with Guinness on his SA
95. Buy a dog run for the backyard or put in a dog trolley
