The worst Day of my life....

Had to vent and share with someone now that I have stopped crying and can type properly. Last night was the worst night of my life. Around 8pm, I was cleaning herps and doing the normal around the house and my dogs (staffies) started making a huge ruckus outside in their run. Their run is off my patio and they have access to the house through a patio door in my bedroom as well, but when I called them to come in, they didn't come. I knew something was wrong so I immediately ran for the bedroom door to take a look. I was horrified at what I saw. My two over 100lb each dogs falling down, drooling, tripping over their own feet. I ran out to Keigan, (my boy) who seemed obviously the worst, and it was the worst thing I have ever gone through. I scooped up one dog at a time (yes little me carried them to the truck) By the time I got down to the vets, Rogue (my girl) was too starting to convulse and shake uncontrolably. At this time I was crying so badly it was hard to see what was going on.
The vet showed up (after hours emergency) and helped me in with the dogs. I was holding Keigan, and he went absolutely crazy. Thrashing around, foaming at the mouth, trying to get up but couldnt. It was the worst thing I had to sit and watch. After 10 minutes of this, Keigan thrashed real bad, bit me hard in the arm, let out this blood curdling howl/cry, and he died.
The vet was working on my female at that time pumping her full of charcoal and stuff to make her vomit. He came in and I was just sitting there holding Keigan, covered in everything, and he was like oh no.
After everything had settled down and Rogue was hooked up to IV and sedated, blood work showed that someone felt that they had the need to poison the dogs. These two are the most passive, laid back, non aggressive staffies you will ever meet.
For the life of me, I can't figure out who, or why someone would ever do this to an animal.
After a night of crying, and now lost one of my best friends, I am back at home. I was with Keigan every day full time since he was just a pup. He would have been 3 this fall. Rogue will hopefully come home this afternoon, we shall see.
Well,, thats it, I just had to share. I have lost all faith and trust in the human race, the thought that there are cruel, heartless people out there that would destroy life like this.
I just wanted to say rest in peace Keigan. I am going to cry more now.
