I adopted a greyhound today a year ago, he had a horrible life and I was so happy to give him a fresh start as he was the sweetest thing, only 2.
I had bonded so much unlike I have ever bonded with a pet, he gave me so much happiness in a dark time
I went away at Christmas and had my aunties mum look after him, full trust, told her not to walk him as he was still getting use to me and being on a lead.
She walked him and he slipped his collar and got hit by a car, I found out hours after I landed.
I’ve never felt pain like it.
I am still struggling with this loss, I can’t look at photos of him without crying, it’s been 8 months and I just want to feel happy about him but I just cry.
I hate to picture what his last moments were and the fact that I wasn’t there, I can’t get over this.

Does it get any better, I feel it’s been so long and I can’t stop crying when I think of him. He deserved so much more

I’m so sorry for the tragic loss of your sweet dog. I hope being on this forum helps you, we are all grieving and hurting in our own way. There is no timescale I still grieve my dog who died over 10 years ago but it is easier now though I will never stop missing him. You are such a kind person to give your dog a second chance. You did everything you could to keep him safe and I hope with time you realise this. It was a tragic accident that you had no power to control or you would have stopped it if you could. He had a wonderful life with you, it was too short but he felt love which unfortunately so many animals never do. Something that sticks in my mind is something I read that asks you to consider what your pet’s life would be if they had not met you, I fear that your boy would have been miserable without a home or even put to sleep, at least he felt love and happiness with you. I think you’re such a good person and I hope you start being kind to yourself.
