Heather Woodland recently joined Doodle Kisses, but she and her beautiful doodle Cujo have been well known and loved for some time now on other doodle forums. Tonight Cujo was hit by a car and did not survive the accident. Please leave a note of condolence for her and her family. Leave your thoughts here and not on her profile page as that may fill her email up and she is not ready to talk to everyone at this time. Please keep her and her family in your thoughts and prayers.
We would like to send a gift to the Woodland family in this time of grief. If you would like to contribute any amount within the next two days, we will use that to purchase a token of our care for them. `````UPDATE--we have raised a sufficient amount to do something nice for the Woodlands. Thank you to all who have contributed.
Below is her slide show and I'm including it as a tribute to her much loved doodle, Cujo.
He was gorgeous, patient, awesome with her kids and an important part of the family. Heather's youngest daughter and Cujo were best of friends.
Our hearts go out to you Heather and we send our warm thoughts and hugs to you and your family.
Oh my goodness, i'm sitting here looking at these pics of a beautiful dog and his people. My heart and tears go out to you so that you may not have to shed so many. Makes me realize what a gift we have in our dogs and how quickly they can be taken from us. Prayers and good thoughts to you and your family.

My deepest sorrow. Time is so short and the doodle magic of Cujo that pawed into your life and left prints in your heart will be your family's comfort as they remember through pictures and stories. Dundee and I are so sorrry.
I am so sorry that this is a road you and your family have had to cross. Your doodle is so similar to my Lucy. I can only imagine the heartbreak you are feeling. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time.
OMG---I am at such a loss for words over this terrible news. I cried when I read of Cujo's tragedy. I felt that he was so much a part of my life as my own dogs. His pictures, especially with Molly, always warmed my heart and made me smile. My heart breaks for all of you, especially Molly on her terrible loss. I will always keep the images of Molly laying all over that wonderful, sweet doodle and the love they shared for each other. It is as if one of our family has passed on. Cujo will never....ever....be forgotten in my mind. He will always remain there, big, sweet, furry, gorgeous Cujo. I am so deeply touched by your loss. I know the thought of him will always warm my heart and I hope it will always warm yours as well. I am so deeply sorry for you all.
I am so, so sorry Heather. My family sends you and your family lots of love, hugs, and prayers. There are no words to aptly express how sad we feel for you right now. We expereinced what you are going through after the Hurricane this year...when we lost both our companions, Freckles and April. We will keep you in our prayers and thoughts. God bless...
We are so sorry for your loss. Seeing the slideshow of Cujo I can see that he was much more than a beloved pet, but a beloved member of your family. May time lessen your pain and your wonderful memories heal your heart.
I don't know what more to say. I am sitting here at work crying and I never even knew Cujo before today, but I do remember seeing photos of him. Every day, I look at Sunny and think "what would I do without him" and I can only imagine what a difficult time this must be for you and your family. Sending you much love & hugs during this very difficult time....you have so many great photos to remember him by. So sorry for your loss.
I am so sorry for your loss Heather. I watched your slideshow and can tell that Cujo was very loved by every member of your family and that he had a wonderful life. I know that words sometimes seem meaningless in a time like this- but I am truly sorry. XOXO Megan and Danny
