She got out of our yard.... hit by a car.Same thing happened to me a few years back. In the middle of my divorce, the ex calls (I think 'what the f*ck is it now'). The lab (Tashi, we'd had her for almost as long as we'd been together, 5 or 6 years) got out of the yard, and she found her on the sidewalk in front of the house. Bad day, that was.

My condolances.

This has happened to a friend of mine TWICE in the past 5 years and she was devastated. For her the best medicine was to get a new pup as soon as possible. She new she could not replace the other dog but it helped in the healing process for her and was a nice distraction. Just sayin'.

Man I am so sorry for you...

03/05/05 I took my daughter and the neighbors kid out to lunch, when I came back I let my daughter out at the end of the road to collect the garbage toter.

My little Jack Russell was out and I ran over and killed my own dog, I cried like a child and didn't work for a week.

I was so upset I wouldn't drive the 4Runner again and sold it very soon there after.

I am sorry man, I truly am and I know how you feel but it's not your fault...

Get yourself together and go to the shelter and give some love to an animal that needs it... Your dog would want you to love another friend.


Again I am so sorry for you.

I know she's not a pup anymore, and I'm going to hate to lose her one day. I'm very sorry about your dog. I can see by the pics, that was a fine dog you had.

I recomend Canadian whiskey for a short time and another bundle of joy in the future.

Truly sorry for your loss. I like dogs better than people and cannot imagine how tough today has been. Here's something that has been posted before, but maybe it can provide a little comfort.

http://www.petloss.com/poems/maingrp/rainbowb.htm

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....

For me, that kind of emotional wound never really "heals." The wound becomes a part of you - it never really goes away. But it does eventually get covered over with scar tissue. You will always feel the loss, but you'll toughen up & move on.

Yep, it'll suck for awhile man, and you'll never get over it entirely. You've just got to remember the good times, and make sure that you keep all of your pictures. When you think that you're up for it, I'd make a trip down to your local humane society. Picking up a new young pup can do a lot, and though it'll never take the place of Keely, it'll start up its own special relationship with you.

You will never forget but everyday that passes will be easier.....

The best thing you can do is be amongst friends and let your emotions out....

Get out of the house and go for a walk.

Mourning is part of the process, it does not show weakness, it shows you cared.

In went to Walmart and got one of their cement flower bed borders that kinda looked like a tombstone and buried my dog in the back yard.... everytime I look out my kitchen window I can see it...

Just imagine running over your own dog man, I hurt for so long after that I didn't think I would ever get over it.... Never got over, leaves a funny feeling in my gut when I think of that day but know that your friend would not have wanted you to suffer. Find a new friend to give your love to man, it ain't like rebounding on a girl.... it is not betraying the friendship you had with the dog for which you are grieving, it's giving the love you have in your heart for pets to another and giving another animal a warm bed and a full bowl of food.


Please rescue a dog when you do from your local shelter.

Excellent, empathetic post.

That really sucks pr_capone. It isn't supposed to be easy to get over it. You aren't weird for feeling like shit, you just lost a family member.

When I lost my first dog (lived with me from the age of 13-25) it really helped to write about the history we had. I ended up spending an afternoon writing this thing and sent it off to friends and family. That was very therapeutic and I made sure to save the fresh memories for the future. I think it helped me realize I'd never forget my best friend because I had it right there in writing.

Any idea when it will stop hurting this much?

I had to put my beloved 11-year-old dog down four years ago when he had cancer. Within a couple of weeks, I had a new puppy who helped ease the pain. He's become a very good dog.

However, I still think about my other dog, and sometimes flash back to that day. I still have feelings of guilt -- yes, I know I did the right thing, blah, blah, but the bottom line is I killed the dog that trusted me. I don't think I'll ever get over that. I hope my current dog lives to a ripe old age and dies in his sleep, because I don't ever want to have to go through that again.

So there probably will always be a painful place in your heart for your dog. There will be days when it comes to the forefront and you'll be sad for a few moments. But seriously, having another dog does help fill that void.

I am somewhat sadden by the fact we treat our animals better than humans, but lets face it. People are assholes. I know they are just dogs but is so easy to have fun with because they never do anything but have time to play. When getting a dog it is important that you understand they will die, but that is the price you pay for having so much fun. Best wishes. What is that speach by jimmy valvano? If you can laugh cry and love in a day. That is a pretty good day.

I am deeply sorry for your loss, not trying to hijack, but I went through a very similar time last summer. My beautiful, healthy 2 year old Golden Retriever Max passed away completely unexpectedly one afternoon while I was at school.

http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/attachment.php?attachmentid=78133&stc=1&d=1210093496


I felt like I was run over by a truck for months. People say just get over it, it's a dog, but to those of us who truly know what a dog can mean, it is not that simple. For the first couple months I felt like I could never own another dog, but my parents bought me a dog for Christmas, and while my new dog will never replace Max, I have come to terms with Max's loss and come to love Otis just as much. This is Otis right after I got him in December:

Sorry about the loss pr . Just when you think you can't ever love a dog as much as the one you lost, a new friend will come into your life. We have had to have two dogs euthanized and it sucks. One was hit by a car and managed to live to 12 yrs old before cancer invaded.
Like many other posters have suggested, give it a little time and search the rescue shelters(most have web sites). You'll find a new pup and it helps the healing.

She got out of our yard.... hit by a car.

Very sorry to hear about this, Mr. pr_capone. I lost my first dog that way.

Time heals, though.

I'm not one to censor discussion, but I do agree that it would be nice to keep this discussion out of pr_capone's thread. I've moved the other discussion to this thread:

Please keep this thread for comments regarding the original post and keep the other discussion in the other thread. I hope that's an acceptable compromise.

This picture is one of the coolest dog pictures that I have ever seen.

What is the story behind it?

I've posted this pic before on here, but this is my dog I had to put down a couple years ago, though this pic was when he was about 5-6 yrs old. I still miss him, letting go is hard to do sometimes, esp if it was your best friend.

She was a flyball dog. Flyball is a team sport for dogs. That is Keely making her return trip. :D

My favorite picture of her ever.

Doing ok.... felt like shit at random points during the day but otherwise ok.

The worst part was how quiet the house was. Cathy and I could not stand to have the house so quiet so we decided to do something about it.

We went to the Wichita Animal Shelter and to the Kansas Humane Society but they had nothing that would fit.

By the way... the conditions at the Wichita Animal Shelter are DEPLORABLE.

We visited a few homes that had litters of puppies either for sale or being given away but none of them spoke to me until.....

Meet Angie! She is a Dapple Miniature Daschund. Her name is actually Angelina, but not after Jolie. I had named Keely after Keely Smith, a singer back in the day and the wife of my favorite swing band leader ever, Louis Prima.

Well, this time I named my dog after one of his songs..... Angelina.

So far she has been nothing short of a cuddle bug and loves to chase my hand. She is already starting to respond to her name and comes when called (for the most part). :D

She can never replace Keely.... but it will be nice to have puppy sounds in the house again. :D

Dude... I love Daschunds. My grand parents had one (Casey aka KC) when I was a kid. Smartest dog I ever met. I could name 3 or 4 others that have been in my family. They're damned good dogs... and lovable as hell.

Be gentle, though... it's really easy for them to have back problems... for obvious reasons.

Yeah.... we have a 10 year old Mini (but not so mini cuz Cathy let her get HUGE) Dot and she is a great dog. I have had bad experiences with them in the past but Mandi won me over.

When I went to go see Angie, I had my reservations but she came right up to me and started licking my face and biting on my beard.... well, I was hooked. :D

I've never been a fan of girlying up a dog before but she looks so damn cute with her pink collar. :D I might just go out and get little bows for her ears. LMFAO

Sometimes I wonder if we can ever be worthy of the animals that love us.

What a great photo.
