    My Puppy

    Hey all I have a sad story to tell you about my puppy, a 15 week old white lab. He loved to be near me where ever I was, this particular day I chose to go fishing at a new spot I had never tried before. A friend describbed the spot as a nice flyfishing spot where you can walk along the river bank.

    Knowing how my dog loved the woods, I opted to bring him with me instead of leaving him at home. We got to the spot and walked around for about an hour before I actually fished. The river was very high and as I began to fish I was concerned that my dog would get too close to the edge, fall in and be swept away, he just learned to swim a week ago.

    For his safty I decided to bring him back to my truck a few yards away from my fishing spot. If any of you have ever had a puppy you'd know that leaving him inside the vehicle is a bad idea. Because I have a big bed in my truck I decided to put him in the back, where he can still be outside.

    I hooked his leash to a hook in my truck and put the tailgate up. Creating a nice little box for him to play in.

    After fishing for no more than 30 minutes I decided to call it a night and walked back to my truck. To my horror I found that my puppy had somehow fell over the side of my truck bed and strangled himself.

    His little body was just short enough to be 1 inch away from the ground so his little feet couldn't touch the ground. He had no chance to even make a sound to alert me he was in trouble.

    I feel terrible and it hasn't sunk in that the noises I hear in my house are not him rustling around anymore. I know that his intensions were to try and find me once I was out of sight.

    He was turning out to be a great dog, he could sit, stay, come, fetch, fetch his leash, get my shoes for me and finally housetrained. I know that my relationship with him was very young but that him and I had bonded and I feel like I lost a friend.

    Accidents happen and I would do anything to turn back time and make a better decesion but I can't and I'm learning how life can throw you some awkward curveballs.

    I'm really, really sorry man. I can't imagine how much that hurts.

    I guess the only lesson to be learned is if you have to do that, make sure the leash is long enough for them to touch.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your lost. I have a dog and two cats and I can't imagine not having them around the house.

    I feel your lost. Take time to heal from this experience.

    Best Regards.
