I recently lost my baby on 7/11/2019.His name was Snickers he was a 7 year old Pit Bull/Shar-Pei mix dog.I had him since he was just a puppy.We were out on a walk as he loved to go for walks and we were having a great time.
Snickers and I were gone for about an hour and then we started to make our way home.We were nearing our street when this truck that was being driven at a really high rate of speed lost control and hit both me and my dog.
My dog and I did try to run when we saw the truck coming but we didn't get out the way in time.The truck hit into a house and the people in the vehicle immediately jumped out and took off running,they didn't even care that they had hit me and my dog.
I was laying on the ground and I looked at Snickers who was laying on his side a few feet away from me,he was crying and I tried to crawl to him but I couldn't move to get to him.He cried a few more times and then he died.I had to watch my dog die. I was crying hysterically...my baby died right in front of me. :'(
There were some people who saw the accident who rushed over to help,they called the police and ambulance and I was rushed to the hospital,I didn't have any broken bones but I am badly bruised in the hip area which was where I took most of the impact from the truck when it hit us.
I'm totally heartbroken and I don't know what to do.I can't eat or sleep,I cry all the time because I miss him so much.I have always had depression but it has gotten worse since his death. I always think if I hadn't taken the route home that I took then the accident never would've happened and I would still have my baby. I feel like it's my fault because I took that horrible route,I feel like I walked him to his death. :'(
I'm so sorry this is so long but I had to get this out and I didn't know what else to do.
