We lost our Cassy yesterday.
My heart is broken. Cassy passed away yesterday.
I took her with me in the car to take my four year old son to a birthday party. She loved the car and always wanted to go with us. She sat with me in the front, she was sitting in the passenger seat. I opened the window slightly, she peeked out and was enjoying the wind and the beautiful weather. She was so happy. I remember looking at her and noticing her beautiful eyes green eyes and chocolate nose. She was so beautiful and loving, and funny and precious....
We picked my son up at the party place and headed home. I parked our car in our driveway. I was helping my son out of the car when she jumped out past me, and in an instant she saw a boy on a bike across the street (not a busy street). She ran. I screamed and screamed but she didn't stop. A car appeared out of nowhere, and the next thing I remember is holding her in my arms. She looked at me and for an instant, I though everything would ok. But within a minute, she was gone. My neighbor ran over and he gave her mouth to mouth while I pumped her heart. She was gone.
This happened yesterday and I am devastated. She was just a baby, only 6 and a half months. I blame myself so much for not having the leash on her. She just wasn't suppose to be getting out of the car by herself. Or if I just parked the car in the garage. Or if I just didn't take her with me. I failed her. I know this. I failed her. If only she went to a different family she would have been fine.
I'm havind real trouble talking to anyone about this. My husband told our friends and parent, and they keep calling. But I just can't talk about it. I'm hoping that by writing this, it will somehow be therapeutic.
We were suppose to have such a great life together. I wanted to get her therapy dog license.... now, she's gone.
Her name was "Venti Cassy Extra Sassy", and she was my baby.
