5. omg, I'm so sorry!!!!

I've been there and I think I know how you are feeling. Awful, just no words to describe.

But it gets better eventually, I know that will not be much comfort right now to you, but it does. And you will remember your little loved one in the fondest and most loving way, and he/she will somewhere, somehow remember how they loved you.

I'm soooooo sorry. Hang in there. Grieve, cry, throw things, if you must, but hang in there.

207. Was your neighbor prosecuted?

My southside neighbor has threatened my 2 little dogs because they're not permanently silent the way he wants the rest of the world to be. He's a bitter old man. My 1/4 acre is entirely fenced, but I still fear for Molly Maguire and Brigid. He used to lean over the fence and wave his arms and cuss at my old chows to stir them up, then go indoors and call his police chief buddy to complain about them. They say he keeps a lot of guns and I'm afraid he'll go postal someday.

50. We never intended to have an animal. He came here to live in out condo when my wifes ...

adult son ended up here. We've only half jokingly said he had to leave, the dog could stay. He found a way into our hearts and we heart broken. He was so loving to us and afraid James.

He would look so worried about anything left on our plates. He just loved my wife and me and he let us know it in so many ways every single day.

I saw him run over and I felt like my heart was punched. I never wanted another animal in my life and this one got into my heart like no other before.

All good dogs go to heaven and this one should have his place there, too.

25. That is awful...just...ugh...no words...

I don't have kids so my doggies are my babies. I also have 3 cats that think they pay the mortgage.

When I was a kid my dog--my ever-present shadow from the time I was 6 years old--was hit by a car right in front of me when I was 12. I was so hard hit that my mother allowed me to stay home for a week, as I couldn't do anything but sob uncontrollably.

You have my deepest and most heartfelt sympathies. You'll get past this, but you must allow yourself time to grieve. And grieve you will.

In time, you will honor your dog by giving a new one a wonderful, loving home. God knows there are too many unwanted ones and not enough love to go around.

168. Our dog was struck and killed by a car right in front of our house

on the same day that Robert Kennedy died. It was tough to deal with that, especially since so many bad things seemed to be happening that summer-- but as you noted, the poster can honor the dog by giving a new one a wonderful, loving home.

I understand. My Anya and Tessa were both killed at the same time on December 13, 2006. (Yes, I remember it vividly still, and it was MY FAULT -- I posted about it here: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=364x2915102).

I am so very, very sorry!!!

34. I lost 2 in a 7 week period earlier this year

One after a valiant 2 year battle with cancer that was filled with almost exclusively good days until the very end. The other to a sudden bout with congestive heart failure.

What I want through is different than what you are going through. You are dealing with shock and a sudden loss. There was no time to prepare yourself. You are going to be emotionally raw for many days to come, and there will be darkness, but you will come out of it on the other end strong and with the cherished memory of your pup. It gets better. I promise. Never be afraid to talk to others or to a professional therapist. That's why they're for.

Wish I could give you a big hug....

Losing a pet is, for those of us devoted to them, nearly as difficult as losing a human family member.

Dogs and cars just don't mix. My mother's dog was run over by a car, that little dog just loved chasing those wheels.

RIP

63. Bradley was too much for us, he's pulled and knocked both my wife and me down .....

several times but James wouldn't take of him and he just weinied his way into our hearts and became and important part of our lives.

He got past us at the door and was gone like a flash, I got close enough to see him get run over. He was afraid sometimes when she and I would leave together that he'd be left alone. I think maybe he though we might bring him along if he got outside first. And we are just heart broken.

I have never felt to sad in my life.

I am afraid when James gets home. He's been in jail three times over violence and I think there is a good chance of more tonight.

71. how awful in every way imaginable... I am so sorry

Something like that can happen in the blink of an eye. I do hope you aren't blaming yourself in any way whatsoever... a dog that quick and that determined is pretty much an unstoppable force. Even if you keep him from running out 99.9% of the time--a pretty high success rate by any standard--that 0.1% can end up breaking your heart.

And then to actually see your beloved dog get hit--I cannot imagine the horror. One thing that I hope might comfort you is to keep in mind that, while you are reliving that moment a million times and will keep reliving it for months or years, Bradley only went through it once. Just once. And then it was over. It is much, much, much harder for you than it was for him.

I don't know what to say about being afraid of your son's reaction. Can you call the police's non-emergency number and ask to have a patrol car drive by a few times tonight?

You have my absolute and heartfelt sympathy. I am so sorry for your loss.

213. James spent almost his entire enlistment in Iraq - including an 14 month "stop loss" hitch....

on top of his enlistment where he was shot in the chest (he was armored but still took a tremendous thump), had his humvee blown up and because he wasn't forth coming to his mom(we found out about those two incidents from others so we don't know what else has happened - I think he has more honor and integrity than any of those who sent him there. I respect him tremendously. He never whines or complains about "poor little me". Ever.

I think he's earned a pass if he hasn't quite acclimated to being home.

He's working through and its not easy. The dog getting away from me was not helpful. But he seems to be taking this with some grace.

67. I lost a cat that way about a year ago

I didn't know she'd been hit by a car. I found her on the sidewalk bleeding from the mouth. The news had been going on about animals getting heatstroke and one of the symptoms they described was bleeding from the mouth. Took her to the emergency vet and they STILL didn't confirm she'd been hit but started pumping her up with oxygen. A day later they finally got around to wiring her jaw but it was pointless because she had a punctured lung that I'd seen on the X-ray and they missed.

Finally had her put down and threatened to sue unless they refunded on all the unnecessary procedures they'd done, especially since there was a do not resuscitate in place. I'm never going back.

Spent about 25 yrs now and every time I hear about a dog getting run over I think of Savannah It wasn't my dog. It was the Pastors families dog. bout 88 or 89 (I'll leave her name out of it) the pastors daughter had gone out to answer the phone (that was the chore for certain years at the school and we were right on a highway. She answered and came running back crying into the classroom. Savannah had been run over during class. Won't ever forget that. I don't know why that is. I'm still getting over ours. That seemed easier. I wish you luck and some good soul searching.

87. I'm sorry for your loss.

We had to let our Freya go, a little over a month ago...we had her for 15 1/2 years, from when she was 7 weeks old.

Here's something that helped us in our grief:

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together.... - Author unknown


I hope that it can help you as well.

89. I ran over one of my beagles once. She broke my heart at 2 am in the morning.

She was an old dog (16 years old) and she would always greet me when I pulled into the driveway. She was slow and when I was backing up to the garage I felt a thump. I stopped and jumped out and found her laying there still alive with her guts spilled out. But, the hardest thing was then I had to get back in my vehicle and drive over her again to put her out of her misery. I feel for you. . .

105. I killed another one of my dogs by accident too. He was a beautiful Yellow Lab

named Dusty and only 3 years old. I loved that dog probably more than any other dog I ever had. He would always want to go with me when ever I started up my old jeep. I was cutting firewood in some woods two miles from home. Dusty took off running through the woods chasing a squirrel when I started up the chainsaw. I downed a huge red oak tree and was busy cutting it up into logs. That's when I discovered Dusty had been squashed by the tree when it fell. Broke the whole family's heart, but it literally tore me up. I haven't had another dog since.

218. please don't make that decision yet

When you're grief stricken is the worst time to make big decisions like this. Personally, the only thing that HAS helped me when I've lost one of my fur babies was to get another one. The love needs somewhere to go, and why would you want to deprive yourself of the love and devotion they give back?

Put that decision on a shelf for now. After some time has gone by revisit it again. Somewhere there's a doggie that wants you for it's wonderful forever home. Of course you aren't ready now, but in time you may feel differently. After I lost my first doggie I also thought no other one could have compared to him until I got Boo, and after his loss I thought that I was just the most lucky person in the world to have had two doggies that were the light of my life, and then I got Yoshi who is the light of my life now. Had I never gotten Boo or Yoshi after Kato died I would have spent the last decade and more in absolute misery pining after a beloved dog that was gone.

The only thing that stinks about having a pet is that we're going to outlive them. That's just a given. But I would never trade that eventual loss over the years of love and devotion and laughter and hugs they gave me for the years that I had them for the whole world.

106. Oh no!!!!

I used to have that fear with my two when they were young pups and very lively. I would have been devastated both at the loss but also asking myself what I could have done to prevent the dog from being in the road.

My two are now so old they are too slow to get away from me so for that I am thankful.

My most sincere condolences to you on this loss. I couldn't imagine my life without my two little angels by my side. I know the day will come when they will pass on but for now I cannot envision a day without the sunshine they bring into my life.

I am so sorry. The loss of a beloved pet is very difficult. There are some good pet loss forums out there if you need someone to talk to that really understands what you are going through. They helped me through the loss of my dog and my cat in a two month period a couple of summers ago. My heart goes out to you.. Be kind to yourself. Tortie.

My heart is with you. How I got thru my dog's death. who was with me for 15 years and we were never apart. She was the sweetest smartest most beautiful dog ever.

I imagined her still with me. I talked to her all the time. I imagined what she would do at each place we would go. It never suffered deep loss and I have alot of loss in my life and family.

Do it. Talk to him or her. She is still with you. It just may work or help in some way.

It worked for me and as I said it was almost intolerable to loose my India.

great love to you.

It's a pain that seems unbearable, so grieve and let it out. This wound needs a chance to heal, which it will.
I fully understand that you can't see it getting better. I could not when the same thing happened to my dog, in front of my eyes.
Today there is always a scar - and I can think of the lost pet with love and gratitude.
You will, too. In time.

Our old cat fell in the pool and drowned 3 weeks ago. I fished him out and spent an hour doing CPR but it was too late. I was crushed and said the same thing as you. But over a few days the good memories of "Franky" started to crowd out the horrible memory of our last time together.

I am still brought to tears, but I am not as crushed as I was. So IT WILL GET BETTER. But for now, I know it is almost unbearable. You have a right to be upset, that only demonstrates what a loving person you are.

I hope and pray you have some comfort very soon.

I'm so sorry for your loss. That's awful.

Now for the platitudes. You will get past this instant in time. You won't forget, of course, and you'll always feel the loss, but the horror of this moment will pass, and you'll remember the good stuff.

One of our dogs was also killed by a car a few years ago. She was a sweetheart, but she had a wild streak. Of all of our dogs, she was the one who got quilled, who was sprayed by skunks, and who managed to get stuck digging in the ground after who know what. And getting her in at night was a challenge. One night, she was right at the door, which I opened, and she promptly turned tail and ran. Fun game. A while later - it was close to 1 in the morning, we heard a truck braking hard, then stopping, and then moving on. It could mean only one thing, and it did. That was 2 1/2 years ago. We miss her still, but the awfulness of the moment is past.

The loss of a loved pet can be just devastating. I lost my last one a few years ago and the pain was so great that I haven't been able to even think about getting another pet and going through it again. I think being older makes it hurt even more.

I just drove through Marble Falls on Saturday coming back from Fredericksburg and the Renewable Energy Roundup. I was thinking as I drove across the bridge "I know a DUer from here!"

The pain will subside, given time. Try to remember the good times.

133. OMG marble falls!

I am so very, very sorry! I know it hurts like hell. I hope your buddy went quickly and didn't suffer. In December, we had to have one of our 12 and a half year old bichons euthanized due to liver failure. It nearly killed me, and I still feel the pain of his loss. On the day we had him put to sleep, my husband had to go to the post office. One of the ladies who works there asked him why he was at the post office in the middle of the day instead of at work. My husband explained that we had had to put our dog down. An older gentleman in line behind him said "I'm sorry. I've lost a lot of family in my time, and a lot of friends too, but there is nothing like losing your dog." At that point, everyone in the post office grew quiet as if they too knew the truth of his words. Although I wasn't there, I'll always remember that. For many of us, our dogs are not only members of the family, but our best friends as well.

I will keep you in my thoughts and send lots of good vibes your way. And again, I am so very sorry for the loss of your buddy.

cried for my grandparents - we are a long lived group and we know where this road ends, I never cried for my dad - he lived good and he lived hard and died with grace. I cannot imagine what losing my children would do to me, it was my biggest fear as they grew up - that they were too perfect and I in no way deserved the blessing they were in my life.

But this dog has me feeling so sad, I just don't see the path.

That just plain sucks donkey butt. I know it's difficult to think beyond the pain and loss right now, but as someone who has lost eight dogs so far, the thing that really helps is getting another dog as soon as possible so that all the love you have has some place to go and to help another dog. I hope you will find yourself open to rescuing a new dog soon, and you can tell him or her all about the dog you've lost - they are very good at listening and licking.

221. I'm convinced that's the only cure

Getting another dog keeps you from wallowing in the pain of loss. That love in our hearts needs somewhere to go, and we don't even often realize how much we need the love that a pet gives to us. You never forget the ones that went before, but having another fur baby is like getting a new lease on life. I think it keeps you from spending ages heaping ashes on your head and wallowing in the pain and misery of the loss.

216. I believe dogs do go to heaven.

Partly because they have perfect souls, and if flawed humans are welcomed in, how could dogs not be?

Besides, every dog I've ever lost has returned to me at least once in a dream soon after, in a way to let me know he or she is well. I know dreams are not always real, but sometimes they are. Some close sense of the other side runs strong in my family line anyway. I had a son that if he warned you of danger ahead, you ignored him at your own peril. So I feel confident in the matter of our furkids, and besides I worked in hospice for enough years to have seen and heard and felt the most marvelous things. Who knows but what our guardian angels are sometimes our departed pets? And I've been saved from potential deadly harm too many times not to realize that somewhere, somebody's watching out for me.

172. oh my gosh, so very sorry. It happened to me too last year

My sweet dog darted out as I opened the door and ran right for the road. Driver who hit him didn't even stop. It was a horror and I felt terrible guilt and regret for a long time. But it did help to get another dog a month later--there are so many who need homes. Got a younger one that we could train to not go near the door and built a different set up for his outdoor potty space that was foolproof so as to eliminate any opportunity of it happening again, although there is always an outside chance of a determined dog getting out. We can only try our best, that's all.
Wishing you a healing heart, in time.

You will be able to get through it, as others have said. You must give yourself time to grieve, just as you would for any human family member. Our "pets" are our family members with attachments at least as deep.

Just let out your grief, and you'll heal. Time truly heals injuries like this.

Yes, it is a worst day. Yet, it's not the only day. Things will get better. And telling us about it while writing all your thoughts and feelings helps as well. Keep the memories intact and the Love you got from him. He's still with you, whatever your beliefs in such things. Seeing those familiar things and places associated with him will be strong memories for years to come. Remembering that Love from him will help you cope, too.

188. I lost mine to sudden and unexpected illness

two years ago come next January, and despite the fact that I have a wonderful new canine friend, I'm STILL not over it.

I'm so sad for you. Hang in there. The pain will be less sharp over time, and hopefully you might be able to share your love and your home with a new canine companion.

Best wishes.

196. I feel your pain, honestly.

 

I've lost 2 dogs due to careless drivers who didn't bother to pay attention while they were driving. In the 2nd instance, I was lucky enough to take a photo of the hit-and-run driver's license plates, and immediately called the authorities. In the end, I was awarded $10000 in damages. But that certainly won't bring back my poor dogs from the dead. Sigh.

199. My worst fear. I'm so sorry.

My dog Kira has kidney failure and a limited time to live but at least we have time to prepare.

I grieve for your painful loss.

222. So sorry -

for you and your family. Dogs are such innocent, loving therapy, and when they are hurting or killed, it hurts so bad. The shock and guilt from seeing that is not something to take lightly - it will ease up as the good memories start taking precedence.

I hope your stepson will be okay, I've known a lot of vets who need that unconditional love of their dogs to keep them out of the dark places.

to you and your family.

224. I am wrecked over this and I can only imagine how much worse it is for him. We (he and I)....

made a report to a police officer this morning. Honestly, even if we could "pin it" on someone - what would be the gain? It would reduce Bradley to price-able commodity and he was family. James has told me he doesn't feel its anyone's fault. That was good of him but of course I know Bradley broke for it past me.

I am sad. Going to work was good for me. I almost lost it for about five minutes. But it was good to be busy and around nice folk.

Its been an astounding experience with all the folks who stopped by here on DU. I am deeply deeply grateful for what has happened here with the outpouring of concern. Joy and I are both pleasantly surprised with the response.

227. I'm so sorry.

I know how much our dogs mean to us. You will heal from this, I promise. It won't be immediate, but it will get better. I do believe in rescuing another dog as soon as possible, as I know our dogs would want us to save another life. When you're ready, perhaps you can do that.

Years ago one of my dogs escaped out of the yard and was hit, by someone that didn't stop. I was my fault for not making sure the gate was latched completely... but the person should have stopped. After 1,000s in surgery, the dog was saved. I've been so paranoid ever since then. My dogs never leave the fenced yard without a leash, and I'm obsessed now with checking the gate.

I'm so sorry. I truly believe we will all see our beloved pets again. We all cross the rainbow bridge.

In the meantime, and only when you are ready, please consider saving a life by adopting a shelter dog.
