My beautiful shi tzhu Tuffy, 12 years old, fell off the dock on a terribly windy day today. He was under my chair and I never heard him fall in nor did I see him swimming. I searched for over an hour until my neighbor came over and told me that he had washed up on her beach. I feel like he must have sank to the bottom so rapidly and the current washed him in so fast. I am devastated and wracked with guilt. I don't know what happened. He was my best friend and my child. I feel utterly responsible and should have never taken him down to the dock with me. How can I forgive myself.... I am heart broken. I loved him more than words can express.

I'm so so sorry to hear what has happened. Our baby girl drown in our pool yesterday. She was not even 2 years old. Same we had our backs turned for a second, there was no noise or splashing. We searched the house for her and then found her in the pool. We did CPR for an hour but it was likely she was already gone in the pool.
It is the hardest event we have had to navigate and the guilt is overwhelming. Accidents happen. You cant keep your eye on them every second even though I'm sure you did every few seconds. We were obsessed with out baby, and promised nothing bad would ever happen to her. Mourn for your sweet companion. I hope you find strength and know that your dog is still with you.

I am so very sorry for your losses. You are not alone in your grief as you can see by all the posts. I posted my story of how I lost my little Maltese Rocky to drowning in our pool on April 9 only a few days after we moved into our new home. My little baby was almost 16, couldn’t see, hear, or walk much any more. He wore a diaper just in case. At first, the grief is raw and inconsolable, but in time it does get better. It has now been five months to the day for me and I can honestly say that time has helped ease my overwhelming grief. I’m able to focus more on the happy memories and less on the tragedy of how he died. Make a shrine, write about it, talk about it, cry when you have to, don’t hold back your feelings. All of that helps deal with the guilt and grief. In time, I’m told we learn to accept that this was a tragic accident and nothing more. We would never deliberately hurt our babies. I wish you peace moving forward and hope that these posts bring you a sense of comfort in knowing that you’re not alone.
