My name is Melissa, about 9 months ago I lost my sweet Ebony. She was a black cocker spaniel. I found Ebby when she was just 3 weeks old and I truly took on being a mom. Up several times a night to feed her take her out and just love on a crying pup. I feel very guilty over how Ebby died. She had just turned 15 yrs old 7 days before she was killed. Because of her age she usually would lay in a corner under our desk, she wasnt the playful puppy running around the living room. We live in the country and have acres of area that have no homes and we live on dirt roads. Well one night my Ebby snuck out of the house it was after she ate dinner so it had to be around 7:00 pm or so, but I didnt notice that she was gone until around 9:00. I searched for hours that night but she was black and couldnt hear so in the dark I couldnt find her or call to her. I started searching again at 5:00 am when it just started to get light out. My husband found her about 9:00 am. She had been hit by a car and killed. I feel so guilty because I didnt notice her gone sooner. I could possibly have found her in daylight before that car found her. I miss her so much she was everything to me. I just cant get past feeling like it was my fault that she got killed. Do you think she knows that I didnt mean for this to happen?
