Comment on Coping with pet loss guilt by Stephanie.
Thanks so much for writing this. We brought our dog home at 10 weeks old and I loved him more than any other critter. He was my toddlers best friend and my shadow. Yesterday I was out feeding horses and I saw he wasn’t with me so I called for him. We live in the middle of nowhere; there are never cars. He came sprinting to me, right in front of a car. He died within minutes and I hate myself:( I know I loved him; I know I took excellent care of him. If I had known he was across the road I would have watched for cars when I called him, but I didn’t know. He wasn’t even 3 years old, I feel emotionally shattered and so completely responsible. It was so traumatic:( your article helped me some, so thank you; anything that comes slightly close to making me feel better right now is a miracle, bless you
