My little max was attacked and killed by another dog
My lil max. I miss him so much. He was 12 yrs old. Spunky and full of life. I was taking him for a bike ride that he loves bc I was on vacation and just got him back. He ran out of my apt so fast to the elevator and met up this dog. As soon as he ran up, that dog chopped on him and swung him like a rag doll. It happened in 2 seconds, I was running up to him at the same time. I was in shock, all I could think of was to rush him to the ER. I felt him dying in my arms. I couldn't do anything to save him. How do you ever recover from that?
Everyone who knew me, knew max. He was all I ever had. So many friends think I should get another one but I don't know if I can.

How sad. RIP Max. At least he was in your arms, knowing and feeling your love as he went on to Rainbow Bridge. It's so hard to lose them. Grieving takes time. He'll always be in your heart...

I'm so sorry that this happened to your little Max. I know some of the horror and pain you must be going through and the thing to do now is to grieve all you need to for as long as you need but as soon as I was able, I would report the dangerous dog to the police and Animal Control so they can make a report of the attack, quarantine the killer dog if it hasn't had its rabies vaccine and do an investigation on the dog's history in the community to find out if it's legally a vicious dog and take appropriate steps to keep other dogs and the public safe from it.
In time, your pain and grief will slowly subside but you never stop missing them, though time does help greatly. I sincerely hope that you have family and friends to support you during this horrible time and, in time, when you are ready, can consider trying to love again like you did Max. He would want that for you.

This just grieves my heart for you. So terrible to have something so devastating to happen at such a happy moment! I pray healing for your memory that this will not always take priority that the wonderful and joyous times will rise above this most painful time. I agree please check on the behavior background of this other dog. This could save the life of another precious little one. Hopefully no one else will experience this again.

OMG!! How horrible an experience for you and your sweetie. I'm SO sad for you and SO sorry for your deep loss
Agreed that you should take your time to grief in your own way and for ever how long it will take you. There is no specific time frame, as we are all different. Also, agreed that the other dog should be reported asap.
May time relieve the deep pain you are experiencing, and that you will be able to pick up the pieces, one by one, and be able to smile when thinking of all the lovely moments you've shared. That, no one can take from you.
Sending you huge hugs!!!!

I'm so sorry for your loss of sweet Max. No one will ever replace him-take your time and allow yourself time to grieve before you decide. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

It was a horrible experience that many others have gone through and I am so sorry it happened to you. I know that you are having "mind movies" and reliving the experience over and over and I promise you that soon it will pass...no you won't forget it but soon the good memories of Max will replace that horrid "mind movies" you have right now. It will take some time but one day you will realize, you did all you could and thank goodness you were with him in the end...take a few minutes each day to just remember him for the good times....take care of yourself. I do NOT see anything wrong with getting a new puppy, I've done it before and it does help to lessen the agony, fill the void and to start anew. I promise you, you will not be replacing him, you will however learn to love all over again...what is not to love about a puppy???? Especially a Yorkie???? Hugs to you....
