RIP Zoey 6/21/2015 - 1/20/2018

Zoey was only 2.5 years old when this morning a truck hit her and broke her neck. She died instantly, no pain. I still remember the times when I came on this forum to ask for advice for her rowdy behaviors when she was puppy biting crazy. She came into our lives and completely changed everything for us. In the 2.5 years that she was with us, she left me with bite marks everywhere, torn clothes, and a broken ankle; she caused many arguments/fights between me and my hubby; she was even once sent away for someone else to adopt. But in the end, She came through with us. She was not very well trained or behaved. She was too much of a energy ball. We took away her toys and bones. We yelled at her, punished her. But she never changed her love and loyalty for us. She guarded us and our home, even the baby in my tummy. Our son was born, She was so loving towards him. She let him pull her ear, her mouth. and all she wanted to do was to tick him, lick him to show her affection. But we did not allow her. And we got angry with her. How should we reconcile all of this when now shes gone forever?? so suddenly. Too late. She left us with broken hearts. There is no taking back for our regrets.
All i can ask for now is for her peaceful rest. Be happy, go run freely, go eat as you please. Because you are in heaven now.

I canít tell you how sorry I am to hear about Zoey. I know you must feel heartbroken. I think a lot of us feel regrets about shortcomings we had upon the passing of a pet. We feel regret for all the times we were short tempered, or mean, or frustrated. Weíve all had those moments. To this day I feel a lot of guilt over my childhood dog who was an outdoor-only dog. My family really didnít know better, but now I do and now I do better with my own dogs. I know my husband feels guilt over a lot of the same things you expressed towards our dobe who died two years ago, and it informs his behavior towards our current pup. You obviously loved Zoey very much, it is evident in how hard you worked with her. And she obviously knew it, and loved you back, so let that be some consolation. *hug*

Now that Zoeyís gone, you feel guilty....thatís a part of grieving.

But I can tell you loved Zoey very much, and I know that through all of the ups and downs of your short time together, she could feel that love. Every single day she knew she was loved. And she loved back.

RIP, Zoey.

OP: Maybe you can do a donation to a local Doberman rescue or shelter to help ease your guilt over Zoey's death? Even as little as $20 goes pretty far for most rescues and shelters. It can pay for food, vaccinations, etc. A small donation will help a rescued Dobe have a better life, and hopefully a more peaceful end to their life.
