Oh God Sarah, I am so sorry. Please, please don't blame yourself or think you don't deserve dogs. Linds makes a great point... she was doing what she loved to do.
My heart is broken for you. I'm sending you all my hugs. =<

I am so sorry She was a gorgeous dog, I was always struck by the beautiful photos of her running at liberty. Please don't blame yourself. Any animal with a good turn of speed can seriously injure itself, regardless of where it is. But it isn't fair to take an animal meant to stretch its limbs like that and keep it tethered all the time for its safety. It was an absolutely horrible, heartbreaking turn of events, but please don't fault yourself, and try not to run through the what if's. There's no way you or any other human could prevent all the freak slips and falls an animal enjoying itself might make.

Again I'm so sorry for your loss.

I am so terribly sorry for your loss. But we're all here for you. And like others have already said, this is in no way your fault. (((HUGS)))

I am so sorry
It's not your fault. What kind of life would she have had if she couldn't be running around, doing what she loves to do?
You made sure the last 2 years of her life were all she could ask for and then some. You gave her that second chance she deserved.
Run free, Maddy.

Goodbye, Rosey. You were the best girl I could have asked for. 10/15/96-03/08/13

Oh no I am so so so sorry for your loss!

But please don't blame yourself, I know its hard not too, I blame myself for everything. She was doing what she was born to do, and you gave her the oppurtunity to be able to run free and with joy. I love your pictures of all of your dogs running their hearts at, they always look so happy.

Again, I'm so sorry for your loss, may she run free at the bridge, and she'll be playing with Breagha waiting for you <3

Rest in Peace sweet girl
The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant.

(((HUGS))) I am so sorry. I agree with the others this is not your fault. It is perfectly normal when grieving to go through the what ifs. But the reality is that you could not have foreseen this. She was loved in every sense of the word. And you are an awsome dog mommy.

I am so so sorry--I have always admired Maddy. You had two beautiful years with her--she knew your love, and that is immeasurable. ((HUGS)).
