I had let him out to go potty, like the fifth time in two hours. He always takes the same path, away from the pool. I feel so guilty, I walked away. Walked back to the door and didn't see him in his grassy area..found him floating in the pool. Jumped in and pulled him out, blood poured from his mouth. I tried cpr but I was so afraid of hurting him...I know now the sense wasn't there. I couldn't save him.
I'm devastated. I keep imagining what he felt, feel so much regret and run through all the parts I messed up. Let him down. Keep picturing it when I try to sleep...this all happened around 1-2 am and it's 6:41 now. All I can do is sit here and cycle between emotions. He was really my baby, I just want to be with him.

I’m so so sorry. This was a tragic accident. I lost my 15 year old Maltese a month ago by drowning too. It is devastating for sure. I was told that in time we come to accept what happened. Time does help with the raw grief but I don’t think we’ll ever get over it. They were beloved. Keep reading these posts, they’ve brought me comfort knowing that We’re not alone in our grief. And let us know if we can help you.

I’m sorry for your loss.
Thanks for your post, painful as it must be. As I type, Lucky who’s a seven year old Bichon Frise is curled on my lap. He’s been with us for two years as his first mom needed hospital treatment. Now I can’t imagine life without him,. Until I read your post I expected Lucky to reach twelve or so but hopefully he’ll be around longer. Be strong and my Best Regards Carl
