In memory of an Eagle Rock dog named Peggy

memorial for an Eagle Rock dog named Peggy

EAGLE ROCK —  An Eagle Rock woman’s brief search for her dog, Peggy, ended on Monday after the animal’s remains were spotted next to the 134 Freeway near where the dog was last seen on Sunday.  Sarah, the pet’s owner,  provided more details via email:

Dear Eastsider,

It is in deep sadness that I notify you that our family dog Peggy’s body has been found on the 134 E Fwy on-ramp from Colorado Blvd. I posted her lost dog info on your website late Sunday night. A concerned lady from Eagle Rock saw it the next day. She called me and told me she saw a dog’s body laying on the median when she entered the freeway on her way to work early Monday morning. She searched online to see if anyone posted about a lost dog and came across my post your website.

After she called, I gathered some family members, drove there to pick her up and found her. She was likely hit by a car and ended up in that location. Our family is in mourning but, at the same time, we are also grateful to all of our Eagle Rock neighbors that have such a great sense of community.

We’ve been living in Eagle Rock since year 2000 and have had Peggy since 2006. She’s been an Eagle Rocker since she was born. I’m not certain where she ended up getting hit but she definitely picked a great spot during her final hours, looking into the Eagle Rock mountain.

A huge thank you to you and to the people of Eastsider for all the great things you guys do for our community!

  1. Dear Peggy, you will be missed by many of those that loved you most. You were always a good dog, fun loving and loved to eat any kind of food that u could get your paws on. You will forever live in our thoughts and memories! Rest in peace sweet girl!

  2. …and the dog found its way to a highway how?

    So many dogs get spooked and try to run away from fireworks. Keep your pets safe this July 4th! If you’re setting off firecrackers, please be considerate, don’t set them off all week long before and after Independence Day. If you see a spooked runaway animal please try to safely navigate it away from busy roads. The animal will be grateful, the driver who did not hit the animal will be grateful, and its human will treat you like the hero you are.

  4. Rest in peace little Peggy. Our animals are spirits that bring us joy and happiness. I’m sorry for your family’s loss.

  5. So sorry for your loss.

  6. Jonathan, if you haven’t noticed, fireworks have been going off for past few weeks. Pets have noticed.

  7. So sorry for your loss! Our companion animals are truly a part of our family. Wish you could have found her before this unfortunate accident. Rest in peace Peggy. You are loved and missed
