Hello, this is Kitt and please know that you did not do anything wrong, it was an accident
I had to put my dear sweet dog to sleep last November and I was lucky to be with her and hold her head but I cried for days. Go ahead and cry.
To answer your questions:
Yes she knows how much you cared for her as she was happy with you and dogs sense when someone is their best friend.
This wonderful and loving dog does not hate you and she would feel sad to see you so upset and crying.
You have suffered a traumatic loss so let yourself grieve for your dog and know you and she were the best of friends. She does not blame you and you should not blame yourself.
Remember it was an accident and throughout our lives we have to live with the accidents that happen and cause us pain. You will make it through this.

You have pictures of her in your heart. You will have a special spot forever just for your wonderful Pug. If she slept with you every night you spent 8 hours of your day with her. I hope this helps you. My daughter sent it to me when we lost our Dee to illness.
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.
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....
Thank You for all the messages and everything....i am going to head to my sisters now.
Take care eevrything, and thank you again! I will probabaly be back on later; hopefully others are too.
Feel free to leave messages they have been really helpful
Dear Hurting, I know so well how terrible you are feeling. I just had to have my precious dog put to sleep this week. My sons and I stayed with him throughout the whole procedure and he went very peacefully. My Rusty was 16yr, 8 mos. very old for a dog. He was a poodle. He was in very poor health, blind, deaf, confused, etc. What we did was a kindness for him to release him from his pain and suffering. I have lost many other dogs and I know my Rusty is in heaven with all the other dogs free from any pain and dancing with all the other dogs there. Do not feel guilty. What the others have said is true. Your dog knew you loved her and she loved you. I know the hurt is unbearable right now. Time is the true healer of all wounds and unfortunately when we go through such a hard thing it seems times stands still. But the time will pass and you will eventually be able to think of your dog with wonderful memories. What happened was a tragic accident so please don't blame yourself. Grief is the price we pay for love and allow yourself the time to grieve. You must also try to take good care of yourself. Maybe there is a counselor you can talk to? I think it is important to let your feelings out and cry as much as you need to. That is how I am getting through my pain. And post here as often as you want. There is always someone to talk to and I will be glad to answer any of your posts. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Thank You Everyone!
Oh by the way her name was Letty...my best friend in the entire world.
I ended up burying her Friday night, but just this morning i finally decided i didn't want her in the ground so i went with my dad and dug her up. I am getting her cremated.
I was trying to think of ways to cope and my new step-mom does scrap booking alot. I asked her if she would help me with making a scrap book for Letty. My dad got some stamps of her paw. I was thinking for one page to do my handprint with hers. The page is gonna be cremes and green.
Anyone have any idea what to do for other pages? I do have a limited amount of pictures however...
Great idea to do a scrapbook for Letty. You could tell her life story in the scrap book. Add poems.......... I am glad you went with cremation, I did for my wonderful dog and Having the ashes come back to us in a nice container was a sad yet OK moment. We buried her in the back yard and have a plaque on the site for her.
Thanks You everyone...
Yes i am doing a little better; but still grieveing very much. Just had a major cry...and with being a male thats not very "macho" of me according to society.
I am just really hoping my professors are somewhat understanding with everything. My school is very anti-letting people off for emergencies or death. My very first semester my brother died and many of my professors weren't understanding at all. Hopefully it will be different this time...this time is actually harder then before. I was closer with Letty then my brother!
I was also thinking of getting a tattoo with my student loan money. Not the best to spend it on, but my tuiton and stuff is paid for and i have left over money for emergencies.
Yup i always put thoughts into my tattoos...i actually have 7 so far. But haven't gotten any in a few years. I mostly want to do it as a memorial thing and a coping mechanism.
I will deffinately let you know how everything goes; the scrapbooking and my tattoo when i will hopefully get it. Not sure if i can put pictures on here or not sense i just joined a few days ago...if someone could let me know if i can or how that would be great!
I really am doing better...thank you to everyone out there that has left the messages. it has been helpful
