I'm so sorry for your loss, I can't imagine how you feel. Thank you for sharing your story, as I often work with my pup in a park under similar circumstances.

My heart goes out to you, if the Internet let us send hugs

Please don't beat yourself up. The could've, should've game just isn't good. It sounds like you really loved your little pup.
My dog Stella had her sister get hit by a car and killed earlier this year. She was only about 8 months old. She slipped out of her harness and ran into a busy road thinking she was playing a game of tag with her owner. Her owner was devastated and spent a lot of time blaming herself and thinking of what she could have done differently. Unfortunately these things happen even when we try to be careful.
Just today I was walking Stella, 15 months, on a long line. She spotted another dog coming out of the woods before I did, and took off running towards it. I tried to stop her but the leash broke! Fortunately we were on a quiet dirt road, and no cars were there at the time. But a regular fairly busy paved road wasn't too far away. We were lucky.
You will know when it is time to get another puppy. Bear will never be able to be replaced....your heart will just grow bigger to allow you to love another puppy. RIP little Bear.

Omg I am so sorry to hear that! I had to hold back tears reading that! What a tragic accident and that's what it was ... An accident try not to beat yourself up about it , but I guess that's easier said then done , I beat myself up about the loss of my Newfoundland dog for years and I have only now realized it wasn't my fault he got sick ... Getting a new puppy ( even though it took me 4 years ) was the best thing ever ...

You will never forget him but a little baby helps ease the pain ... Thoughts are with you!

I am sorry for your loss. Know he is watching over you from above. Puppies forgive easily, so try and forgive yourself.

The beginning of your story sounds like one I lived through a few months ago.

My puppy got out the door and started to run. I tried to call him back, but he wouldn't listen. Calling after him seemed to excite him more, and he approached the road in front of my house without hesitation.

I had to chase him. I ran after him as fast as I could, and I was gaining on him.

I literally tackled him in the ditch next to the road just as a garbage truck thundered by.

This could so easily have been me. My heart is breaking for your loss. I hope you are alright, and that you can remember your time with Bear fondly and as painlessly as possible.

I'm so sorry.
Rest in Paradise little one.

I wish you could have learned this lesson without losing Bear.
