A 12-year-old Virginia girl was laid to restÂ with her beloved dog after she was killed trying to save her pet.Â
Jennarae Goodbar and her dog, Cash, were both run over in Lexington, Virginia. She was training her dog on Oct.Â 28 when Cash took off running into the street. She chased after him and a driver was unable to stop, fatally striking both the girl and her dog.Â

The girlâs family decided she and Cash had to be buried in the same casket. Â
âHaving Cash and her together, I want to cry, but at the same time Iâm so happy there are no tears for it,â the girlâs mother, Donna Jean Stuples, told Inside Edition.Â
It was standing room only at her funeral, with more than 500 people in attendance. The procession was led by local hunters who drove their cars and trucks, each with dogs hanging out the windows or in the flatbeds.Â
During the service, one of Goodbarâs favorite songs was played, Carrie Underwood’s “See You Again.â
The pallbearers wore dog leashes across their chests.
As the sun set, the barking of the dogs who led the procession was audible, as if they too were saying goodbye.
