Good afternoon. I found this forum while browsing around for how to deal with the loss of a pet so I want to share my story. I had two Yorkies that I brought home from Korea. They've been with me and the family since they were babies. One of them is a chunky ball of hair that always stays close and the other was a litte adventurer who couldnt sit still. Although they slept inside, my dogs would spend most of the time in the yard playing and running around and one of them would always find a way to escape the fenced in yard. Last night, me and the wife were going out and. When we went to bring the dogs in the usual suspect was missing. I went to look for him at his usual hang out and couldn't find him. We looked everywhere and nothing. A bit before we left, we heard his collar in the lot behind our backyard and my dad said he would leave the door open for him to come in so we left. We were gone for maybe 2 hours and on the way wack home we found our little champ had been hit and killed by a car. I've lost pets before but OMG I almost died when I saw him. It was the most painful thing Ive experienced in a long time. I went with my dad, picked him up and put him in a little grave: however, I cant help but feel guilty, i cant get the image out of my head, i cant keep thinking of all the things i couldve done that maybe couldve kept him alive but the reality is that he always found a way to run away, he was always walking around and yesterday was weird, he didnt take his usual route, he didnt respond when called, i cant help but think it was his time and it is devastating... This is just sooooo hard....

I am really truly sorry for your lose. I know and share your pain and heart ache. It sounds as if Champ was an independent little fellow. I am so sorry you had to see him that way. It's something that will haunt you for a while. Please don't blame yourself. It was a tragic accident. Your little wanderer will be able to wonder at the bridge with all the freedom he can handle.
Come here often, we all share a loss and understand.
Love and doggie hugs

Thanks a lot. I really appreciate your words. It is ironic that I work in a field that helps people deal with these types of situations yet it is so hard to apply all the advice that Ive given to myself. It is so hard but slowly I hope ot gets better. Although it is something extremely heartbreaking I think it has helped me regain some of the humanty Ive lost along the way. I really think he is running freely now and I can actually say that in a weird moment today I felt that he came to say good bye or hopefully a farewell. Again, thanks for the reply, it really means a lot.

I am so very sorry. It is strange to other people to be so upset about a pet but we understand. Again, I am terribly sorry.
