Millie, My Sweet Baby Girl

by Beverly
(United Kingdom)

You died doing the thing you loved, chasing a deer, but I wish with all my heart I had never taken you on that walk that fateful day, 12 November 2011. You would be here with me now instead of me holding your favourite toy and collar and crying once again.

I miss you so very much, my sweet baby girl. I am so so sorry I took you on that walk. I hope you can forgive me because I can't forgive myself.

Take care my darling ....

I Feel the Pain
by: Bob

I feel exactly your feelings when it comes to "that last walk." I feel guilt and pain in a case that should have just been a normal everyday activity, but it did not turn out as such.

I have yet to forgive myself for a bad leash clip and the untimely roll of that big truck. I can only hope that dogs do go to heaven and I do too... :)

Stay strong--you are not alone.

Don't Blame Yourself
by: Anonymous

I was moved by your tribute to Millie and can relate to your feelings of guilt and remorse.

I lost my CoCo girl on 12/27/2011 to a bacterial infection that took her quickly and without mercy.

CoCo and I went for our morning walk just as we'd done 1000 times before, but that morning, she found / ate something on the ground (before I could take it from her). Whatever it was carried lepto bacteria. Within days, CoCo stopped eating and drinking, and constantly vomited.

The Doctors could not save her as the bacteria had attacked her kidneys / liver.

Two days after Christmas I was forced with the decision to let her continue suffering or do the merciful thing and send her home to God.

I know your pain, loss, and sorrow. I'm in it right now myself. I cry every day and miss her beyond description.

I take comfort knowing that my Angel's pain is over and that she's playing in the fields by the Rainbow Bridge waiting for the day when we will reunited forever.

God bless you,
