Omg I'm so sorry. She was def my favorite of your dogs. What a tragedy. Even though her life was short you definitely gave her an incredible one filled with so much love. I'm so very sorry for your loss.

Oh, Sarah! Everyone is right -- this was in no way your fault, it was an awful, tragic accident that happened. Maddy was doing what she was born to do -- running.

Try to hang onto the knowledge that it is the quality of life that is truly important, rather than the quantity and know that the bonds between us and our dogs are never severed, no matter the distance, no matter the plane of existence.

My heart is breaking for you, I can't even imagine. Just know that those 2 years that you had with her, many dogs never get to know that kind of love and have that quality of care that you give to your dogs. She was one of the most beautiful Greyhounds I've ever seen, so sleek and she sounded like such a great dog.

There is NO WAY that this is your fault, if you had any idea that was going to happen - you would have tried to prevent it. It was a freak accident, it had nothing to do with the care that you provided her.

Oh Sarah... My heart is just breaking for you.

This. Is. Not. Your. Fault.

You can't keep a greyhound from running. Even if you could, it's just not right. Two years of joy and freedom in the beautiful place you call home is more than most dogs will ever get. Maddy was blessed to have you - all your dogs are.

I know that I will miss her, so I can only imagine what you must be feeling. Please just hang in there as best you can.

I am SO sorry. It is definitely NOT your fault at all You can't keep a dog from running- this could've happened to anyone. You are such an awesome pet owner, and this was a freak accident.

Rest easy, Maddy.

I'm so sorry for your loss. As everyone said, it's not your fault. It's just a terrible accident that could have happened to anyone.

I'm so so sorry. Let me say this multiple times.
This was NOT your fault.

You are not a terrible owner, you are a great owner!!!!

Accidents happen, and unfortunately as much as we would like we(as dog owners) can not put our dogs into bubbles. No matter what we do to prevent accidents, we can not prevent them all or see what accidents are going to happen.
She had a wonderful 2 years with you doing more with you than 90% of sighthounds get to do.
