I can’t believe how today has turned out. I came home from work to see my husband and our 5 month old puppy in the driveway washing the car. It’s a beautiful sunny Friday here. The kids were inside. I said hello to both of them for a couple minutes before I went inside to see the boys. My husband finished washing his car and moved it in the garage. He was going to wash the truck next and when he went to move it over, he got in, saw our puppy on his side of the vehicle and put it in reverse. He didn’t even accelerate, just rolled back, and she ran under and he rolled over her. She was killed within seconds. My 4 year old son saw it from the window and said “daddy just rolled over Millie” but I didn’t believe him. Then my husband came inside and I was like, “daddy you didn’t run over Millie did you?” Trying to reassure my 4 year old. He said yes and I asked him again a couple more times in disbelief. We went and buried her a couple of hours ago.

I can’t believe the amount of grief I have over the loss. We only had her about 4 months but now I can’t imagine her being gone. She was such a good and absolutely beautiful puppy. She was perfect and she was so special. I can’t imagine ever having another dog that will be like her. I’m so angry. I can’t believe this happened, and so suddenly. We didn’t even have a chance. No warning no opportunity to save her or have it Just be a close call to learn a lesson. My husband says he feels like he let me down, which of course isn’t true. He’s so sad too and I can’t imagine how he feels. I feel like I let her down—we were supposed to take care of her.
I feel crazy for being so sad over this when we’ve only had her such a short time. I just never would’ve expected this to happen. I’m completely devastated and have cried for 5 hours straight now. My 4 year old is so confused and has so many questions. He’s wondering when I’ll be happy again. Of course he saw it happen, too. My 2 year old doesn’t know the difference yet but it’s hard to constantly have to talk about it with my 4 year old and try to patiently answer his nonstop questions and sadness when I’m also trying to process it. I just don’t understand how or why this happened. It doesn’t seem fair. It was so fast. She was such a good and healthy pup. So young. I feel terrible.
