View Full Version : My heart is broken

04-29-2006, 09:15 AM
Thursday afternoon I was taking Annie for a walk to get some ice cream and she slipped her collar. I called her and she wouldn't come. She led my on a chase all over the neighborhood but every time I got within 50 feet of her she would bolt. My poor girl. She was so scared and unable to trust. I don't know what was done to her in her past but it left her with deep trauma and distrust of humans. She would come into the yard on thurs night but would not get close to the house. I put her favorite food out for her but she would not come near.
Friday morning I didn't see her but I left some food out for her and went to work. After work I found her by the side of a busy road near my house. She was hit by a car and she was gone. I feel so terrible today. I really wanted to be able to help her and I loved her. Thats an awful end for her when she still had so much life left to live. She never knew that people can be kind and dogs can be loved and safe. I can't write anymore right now, I'm so sorry.

I am so so very sorry to hear this...Alex and I will light a candle tonight for Annie. You're wrong about her not living long enough to know that people can be kind...she had you, even if for only a little while. Hopefully when the worst of this has passed, you'll be able to take a little comfort in that. Thank you for caring, and giving her love. :hug99:

I am so, so, so sorry!!! This is so sad, but it is not your fault she had these issues - she has only known love since she came to know you. :bighug:

Oh Amy, my heart breaks with you. You did your best for Annie, but she was just too damaged by the cruel people in her life before she found your loving home. I cannot imagine the horror at finding your beloved girl by the side of the road. :sad1: :sad2: :bighug: She knew a few shorts weeks of love, that's a huge gift you gave to her, and I know she loved you for it.

We're here if you need to talk, but if you need time away to grieve, we understand. :hug99:

Oh Amy! I'm SO sorry this happened. You poor thing:hug99: It's not fair!! Dogs slip out of their collars or get out of fences all the time (mine escaped their harnesses as puppies)... they are just easier to catch when some IDIOT hasn't abused them horribly in the past. That little girl DID know love in your home, and she will be waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge with a big lick.

You go hug Weenie and Cricket and take care of yourself... we will be here when you want to come back and talk about it - or not. Lots of :hug99: :hug99: :hug99: to you.

Oh, Amy, I'm so sorry. :hug99: :hug99: Annie knew love from you. She just hadn't learned to trust it yet. You were the most positive thing in her life and you did all that you could for her. Take care and know that she and you are loved. :hearts:

I can't tell you how sorry I am. A million hugs for you and all who loved her. And she was loved...that has to have made a difference.

04-30-2006, 09:49 AM
Oh Amy, I am so so sorry. You gave Annie the best few weeks of her life. I believe she did know you loved her, she just didn't know what to do with it as well. You did everything you could for her. :rayz: for the newest :angel7: at the bridge, and :pray: and :rayz: for you, DH and Weenie and Cricket. Take all the time you need, but if you need anything, you know how to reach me. :hearts:

Oh dear dog. I just found this post after having been off for a while. Amy I am so very sorry to hear your sad news. I cannot imagine the sadness in your heart.

Poor Annie- finally hit the jackpot and did not know what to do with it. God love.... She did know love, but sometimes the hurt and the fear are too deeply ingrained to overcome.

Bless you for taking such good care of her during your short time together. It matters, and I am truly sorry for your loss, dear one.:hug99:

Amy I am so sorry to hear this. My heart goes out to you. YOu tried. You showed her love in the time you had her. She is at the bridge now, where taht is all she will know. :angel7:
