Word can not explain the pain and guilt I am going through with what happened yesterday. I am a farmer and my buddy Tex has been with me since he was 8 weeks old. He rode with me everywhere and on any type of tractor I was using for the day. He would go sun up to sun down with me everyday for the past 12 year. Unfortunately yesterday was our last day together. He rode with me to work at 6am as usually. Sitting shot gun like he always did.

I don’t want to go into details but there was a terrible accident and I ran him over. I didn’t see him. I picked him up and rushed to the vet but he didn’t make it. He died in the front seat of my truck were he loved to ride. My heart broke when I looked over and seen him. I pulled over and broke down. I can not believe what I have done. I feel nothing but guilt and regret. If only I would of looked. Why didn’t I? Why did this have to happen? Some might say it happens for a reason but what reason could that be?

Some might say I’m crazy but Tex was more then a dog to me. He went everywhere with me and on every vacation my family took.

I’ve never written into something like this but I thought it would help. Thank you

Oh my goodness, I can’t image how you feel. But as owners, we have the best intentions and give our pets the best life we can. It sounds like Tex was a great companion. My heart goes out to you and your family.

I am so very sorry for your loss. And you are certainly not crazy. Our pets are our companions, not "just a dog" or "just a cat. My girlfriend accidentally ran over my cat Green Bean a couple of weeks ago and it still hurts very much. I understand the pain your feeling.

I remember something a pastor once said to me. "If you are looking for answers, there may not be any. If someone says it will be all right, it will, but not for a while. And if someone says don't cry, certainly you can cry.

Keep the faith and God bless.

That is so sad to read, I'm so sorry for your loss. Try not to give yourself a hard time, whatever happened, it wasn't intended. Give yourself time.

I totally understand the hurt you feel. I lost my 7 year old akita about 2 months ago and it crushed me. He was my best friend, and like you we did everything together. Dogs like these are angels sent into our lives when we need them and I think they leave when the time is right. I doubt any explanation will ease your pain now but I'll share the thoughts I have about my pup.
He was only 7... We were eating dinner together one Sunday night. His stomach twisted after he ate. I rushed him to the vet and he had a heart attack during the emergency surgery. My soul was crushed that night and I'll never be the same again.
Several people said the same thing and I had the same thought...he came into my life exactly when I needed him, he was a gift from the cosmos. I think when I was ready, when I was strong enough to be on my own, he left ...maybe he needed to go help someone else in need. There are so many possibilities that we just can't know.
I miss my dog more then I can say...i know how you feel..he was my world and its lonely without him. I get how special your bond was. This was a horrible accident and I doubt there's much you could have done. I don't know if anything I say makes a difference but I hope one day soon you can feel good about your pups soul going on forever on a beautiful journey...we'll all meet again. Be strong and be good to yourself...our best friends would want it that way. Thank you for coming here and sharing. -Katsu's dad

I miss my cat Lola's friendship too.  I had to put her to sleep yesterday.  I feel like I lost a part of myself.
