Cry Good-bye to Pebbles

On January 22, 2005 my 12 year old daughter was playing with her friend in the house. My 3 pound Pebbles was playing with the girls. She loved to run and nip at their toes. She was so fast always dodging their feet. This one time though she became distracted and my daughter accidentially stepped on her and she died instantly. This was so devastating, especially for my daughter. It has been 3 months since our lost and she stills harbors alot of guilt over her death. We all miss her so much. She was our little princess baby and we spoiled her to death. In February we thought it would be a good idea to purchase another baby as soon as possible as we thought it would help my daughter. We now have welcomed little Toby into our family. He is a yorkie/shih tzu mix and a holy terror. He has lessened the pain. I think about my Pebbles everyday. Each day our grief gets a little easier. I am so glad we had 6 years together. I will treasure her memories forever. She truly was the best dog in the world.

Oh your poor daughter! I know she is devastated! My baby Gracie ran under the whell of the car in our driveway and my son ran over her! He is 16. It is so painful for him and of course we were shattered! Keep reassuring her it was the dog's fault and not hers. I'm so sorry for your loss and hope that Toby fills up your heart once more! You will always miss your Pebbles but you will love him too!

Default Jupiter

I don't like to talk about this much because I feel like people will think I never should of gotten another yorkie. But the first little yorkie I ever had I stepped on. His name was Jupiter. I look back at it today and realize there were so many things wrong. He was from a private household which was fine but they sold him way to early, he fit in the palm of my hand everyone mistook him for a kitten. I remember him not even being able to make it through the leaves on the ground. I wish I had known what I know now.
Anyway that day I attended one of my friends fathers funeral. He had died from prostate cancer, and I couldn't bear to go to the party after the services so I went home and sat with my puppy. He was tiny and slow, his claws stuck to the carpet and I underestimated him and where he would be I took a step backwards without looking and stepped on his head. It was one of the most traumatic experiences of my life. The next morning he was put to sleep.
The Day Jupiter died was the day my father bought me a new yorkie. But I still couldn't get over Jupiter despite having Zues. I feel for your daughter and I bet she feels awfully alone to, I know I did and still do. How many people do you know killed there own dog, even if it was an accident. The whole thing haunts me to today. Please let her know it's happened to others, That she's not the only one.

Thanks guys for your kind words. I also thought that everyone wonders why I bought another small dog. Pebbles was three pounds and Toby is 3.3 pounds and is 5 months old. He is a more staulkier dog as pebbles was so thin and fragile. I will have my daughter read some other stories in this category because I know she is not alone. She needs to know that. I worry so much about her as she was very close to Pebbles. I have read letters that she has written to her and she often mentions that she wishes she was in heaven with her. It breaks my heart.

AAhhh, that is horrible, and soo sad, I can only imagine what you and your daughter must be going through,,, I think we all have had that sickening feeling when your walking and step on a somthing and your heart drops and you jump, then realize its a toy or something... I cant imagine your pain. It brought tears to my eyes when you said " she wants to be in heaven with her" Ahhh.

I "m so sorry. I feel so sad for you're family....especially you're daughter but it was an accident. It's so hard to loose a pet you love.. I didn't even realize how hard until recently loosing one myself.

I'm just glad you got a new puppy. I think Toby is probably the best medicine.

Oh, what a sad story. Unfortunately, accidents happen, but it was an accident, and I will warn my own 13 year old not to play that game anymore because she loves to run from Hefner too when he is trying to bite her feet or ankles. Tell your daughter that her story has helped others avoid the same tragedy.

Congratulations on Toby! He is really a cuti-pah-tuti!

I am so sorry for the pain you and your family, especially your daughter, are going through over Pebbles' passing.

I think it's good that you have opened up your heart and home to Toby and I hope he will help numb the pain for you all as time goes by.

I am so sorry for you and your daughter! Toby is beautiful and lucky to have a home with you. (maybe in some special way Pebbles sent him for you). You are in my thoughts on this difficult day......

I'm so sorry to hear about your tragic loss, and about the loss of others who also left their supporting messages to you. I have never lost a puppy before and now that I have had Nina for 3 months, I feel so attached to her that I can't even think about what life would be without her. I feel so responsible for her welfare and I can only imagine how you feel. Sometimes I step on her little paw and it breaks my heart. Now, I just walk very slowly around her. I pray to God that your daughter will truly forgive herself. It really was an accident. I'm sure that your support and time will heal her heart.

Oh, I am so sorry for you and your sweet daughter. I can only imagine the guilt she feels. This in no way really compares, but when I was about the same age I had a hampster that I forgot to feed and she died...she was two years old (ancient for a hampster) and if I think about it too much, I still feel really bad. And that was completely avoidable. What happened with Pebbles was an accident. I remember just crying and crying and crying. If I felt so much guilt and grief over my hampster, I'm sure your daughter feels much worse. Please remind her that it was not her fault and could have happened to anyone. I will be extra careful with my Sophia and make sure my son and daughters hear about this story and are extra careful too.

Your story brings tears to my eyes....because I feel so much for your daughter. I'm really glad you got Toby. That is the best way to heal the pain. I didn't get another hampster....I didn't trust myself. It was like 7 years before I got my cat (Arnold) and she is 12 now. I'll never forget to feed an animal again!!!

Sorry so long. Sending loving thoughts out to your family.

This is so sad, both the stories, you just never realize how fragile these little guys are. I'm scared now. My son is 4, I am definitely gonna be 10x more observant. My heart goes out to you for your losses.
