I can say this has truly been the worst year of my entire life. Early in the year I lost my 9 year old dachshund to a broken disc in her back followed by heart failure. This was heartbreaking but I knew it was always a concern with this breed so it was easier to move on. Several months later my husky mix ran away in the middle of the night. He was extremely smart and opened the latch on the door. We didn't find his body for two weeks, he was struck by a car. He was the funniest dog I've ever met and I miss him dearly but eventually I got over my grief and remember the happy moments and all the adventures we went on. Only a couple months after this I brought home the cutest Aussie pup. My older dog was without a companion and I missed the energy of a young dog. She took to the new puppy quick and taught him everything. I start training my dogs off leash right away. My oldest dog Bella was a pro and had been off leashed trained for almost 10 years. Two days ago took Bella and my new pup on a hike in nearby wildlife areas as I do nearly every day. They roam free and are so happy. I went to a place Bella has gone for many years. Something possessed her to climb through two fences and onto the highway nearby, my young pup followed but came back to me when I screamed. It was to late for Bella. I heard her being stuck by a car. I was helpless and could not go to her because my puppy would follow and I was very far from my car. I screamed and cried for hours. My brother collected her and brought her home. She died instantly thought on the road. I haven't slept for two days and Everytime I close my eyes it replays in my head. I should never have taken them there. I can't feel anything but guilt.
