I was dog sitting my best friends 2 dogs for the weekend along with my 2 dogs. I done this plenty of times before, they all were in my yard where I have an in-ground pool. One of my friends dogs jumped into my pool and ended up drowning. When I found him, I gave him CPR and after what felt like a lifetime he finally started to breathe. It was shallow but he was breathing. I got him to the animal hospital where he coded a few times and finally passed away. I am beyond heart broken for this little pup he was around 6 years old. I loved him like I love my own dog. He was a wonderful dog. I replay the situation over and over wondering what I could have done differently. I forgot to mention that my 12 year old son let the dogs out in the yard and left them outside by themselves. With trying to make sure he was ok ( he kept blaming himself) I myself was out of control crying screaming etc. we were a mess. Then I had to tell the family that their dog has died after trusting me to take care of them. I can’t even imagine what they are going through, because every time I close my eyes I see the whole thing play out in mind. The reason for my post is that I feel guilty and I’m wondering if I’ll ever be able to get pass this. It’s very Awkward now, however it’s only been a few days. I pass their house I start to cry. I feel horrible. I did everything I could to try and save this fur baby but it wasn’t good enough. Thank you for listening.
