my boy marley

by david

three years ago i bought what i thought was a fully registered shih tzu pup.
we called him marley and it turned out that we were duped as we never got his papers.
too late. we were in love with him .he was almost white and had a squint in his eye .he fathered a litter of puppies with our girl sasha and they were beautiful
every day i came home from work he would sit on my knee and we were just best friends.
well last week my wife asked me to fix our back fence so he could go for a run .i forgot. he was knocked over by a truck and we had him put to sleep that evening.
my heart is broken.
i have never felt this bad .i cant work,i cant sleep and i have to hide to cry,i have never cried in my adult life before
i found this site and i know i am not alone
i dont think i will ever forgive myself
i feel like i caused the accident and then made the decision to cause his death.
i know it is too soon to expect to get over this but every day feels like a week

i miss you and i love you marley
i will always love you

David I am sorry for your loss of your pup. What a tragedy. In REALITY it is not always easy to just leave everything and make the changes asked of you SUDDENLY. It does take time to process what is being asked of you. YOU AGREED TO DO THIS WORK. It is a very UNCANNY COINCIDENCE that this should happen with sudden rapidity. Almost like an omen. DESTINED to happen by the law of the Universe from a spoken request. You will be feeling so GUILTY with the endless questions of "If Only". Some things we can prevent in life and some we can't. Even if you conclude that you let your pup down. You will have to FORGIVE yourself for this tragedy.
don't deny yourself another pup. You will find healing from this. Plus you will be able to make the changes and go on and enjoy Life with another pup. Best wishes.
