How I Dealt With Our Puppy's Death

Last Sunday our pupply was hit by a car and died. As I type these words, I am still in disbelief. I am a firm believer of the mantra, “Everything happens for a reason” and finding a reason for this was damn hard. Here is how I dealt with the loss of our puppy.

When it happened, we were all outside in the backyard. It was a sunny and beautiful day in Los Angeles. The girls were having fun, playing in their tree house and Tiggy was running around, playing with them and getting into my veggie garden.

When we didn’t see his cute little face, we started calling his name. All the sudden, I had a pit in my stomach. I ran outside to the front of our house and I saw him laying on the street, with a puddle of blood by his tiny head. I let out a blood curling scream. Michael and the girls ran out. I blocked the girls and took them to the backyard. My oldest, Devani knew and was crying uncontrollably. Bryanna, our 2 year old knew something happened. I was holding them tight and as I looked up, I saw my husband’s face. He was in tears. And I knew we lost our beloved puppy.

My mind was racing. I had so many emotions go through me, it was overwhelming. I had to get my mind in order. I knew I had to process this, so I could fully be present and help my family.

1. Release Blame.

When my husband went to pick up Tiggy from the street, his lifeless body was still warm. The driver that hit him was in tears. Her 10 year old son was with her. When I heard that, my first reaction was empathy. I could not imagine what she was going through, knowing her car had hit and killed our puppy.

I instantaneously forgave her in my head and sent her family an abundance of love. 

2. Let Go of the Guilt.

My mind was racing, “What could we have done to prevent this? How did we let this happen?” There was so many things we could have done in hindsight, but that is all infamous “Coulda Woulda Shoulda”. I have lived in the land of guilt for many, many years.

Guilt and worry landed me in the hospital with ulcers. To me, guilt is the easy way out. The tough choice is to forgive yourself. The amazing part of forgiveness is that it enables you to see clearly and release a huge weight off your shoulders.

Guilt is a wasted emotion. Choose forgiveness. If God can forgive us, why is it so freaking hard we forgive ourselves? We are not perfect. We are human.

3. Find the lesson.

This step was really freaking hard. I was racking my brain, searching for an answer. When I couldn’t find one, I stopped obsessing. I reminded myself to take a deep breath and clear my mind.

In my relaxed, I remembered what my Mom told me when our kitten died. “Sometimes our pet knows something bad is going to happen to their family, so they sacrifice their life for their owner’s.”

That comment has always resonated with me. I started searching for what the  “something bad” may have been. All the sudden, I got goosebumps all over.

We live on a busy street. Our front yard is pretty secure, but there are a few things that need attention. It was always on our “to do” list, but then life happened and other things took priority.

Not anymore. The next day I called our handyman to fix our front gate, add a lock to our screen door and get an estimate to add another side to our gate to completely secure the front yard. We also have contacted the city last year to add street lights, so I asked my husband to follow up with the city. Doing everything in our power to prevent this from occuring again led to peace in my soul.

Finding the lesson and knowing Tiggy’s death was not in vain is what keeps me going. It gives me the strength to support and be there for my family.

We talk about Tiggy all the time. We remember all the funny things he did and how he loved us unconditionally. In the little time we had him, he made his way into our hearts and taught us invaluable lessons.


Yesterday was history, Tomorrow is a mystery, Today is a gift, that is why it is called the Present. Savor it.

Sending you tons of Love & oodles of Light!

    I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved Tiggy. I just lost our sweet 1 year old yellow lab, Harley last night to complications from and obstruction. He loved to eat everything and got string caught in his intestines. We lost our 15 year old black lab last year and that heartbreaking too but he lived a wonderful and long life. Harley was just one. I feel so much guilt that I didn’t keep him safe and offer him the same long life. Not to mention my four heartbroken children. I found your article and I thank you for writing it. It made me feel like I wasn’t alone in these feelings. I feel like I’m going crazy.. I found your article when I really needed it.

    Ireland’s National Public Service Media Each of the preseason AP Top 25 teams play this weekend, with action taking place all the way from Thursday through Sunday.

Much will depend on whether Grealish himself thinks he will be able to fit in at Man City and maintain the star player status he enjoys at Aston Villa.  There’s only one place to start on the Man City transfer rumour front. Lionel Messi. Manchester City’s German winger Leroy Sane is being linked with Bayern Munich The 19-year-old's contract with City expires at the end of next season and that's said to have alerted United, Liverpool, Barcelona and a number of other clubs to his availability. – Man City reportedly keen on Griezmann (full story) All summer, the Blues’ hierarchy attempted to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur, but Spurs chairman Daniel Levy blocked the move from progressing any further than just talks.

    Aloitteleville pelaajille on tärkeää tasapainottaa pokerin pelaamisen hauskuus ja jännitys ja huomattavat tappiot, joita saattaa kerääntyä nopeasti, jos ei tiedä mitä tekee. Miten pääsee alkuun matkalla seuraavaksi suureksi pokeritähdeksi? Tässä on viisi pokeristrategiavinkkiä, joilla pääset nopeasti liikkeelle. 7 card stud 2-7 draw (Lowball) Pelaajalle jaetaan 5 korttia. Panostuksen jälkeen pelaaja voi vaihtaa kaikki viisi tai ei yhtään korttia. Tämän jälkeen seuraa uusi panostuskierros. Jos jäljellä on vähintään kaksi pelaajaa, seuraa korttien näyttö. Tämänkaltaisessa pokerissa paras käsi on se, jossa on pienimmät kortit. Pitää myös muistaa että suorat ja värit lasketaan kättäsi vastaan ja ässä lasketaan aina suurimmaksi kortiksi. Kannattaa youtubesta hakea haulla: Magic612 niin ei jää epäselväksi minkälaisia nuo nettipokerisivustot ovat. Olen pelannut 15 vuotta eri pokerisaiteilla ja samantyyliset paskat handicap softat niillä on kaikilla.Veikkaus käyttää samaa rng:tä kuin jokunen muukin pokerisivusto ja se on myös rigattu softa. Jos online peliä pelaatte jossain niin suosittelen sivustoa Olybet. Tuntuisi vähemmän rigatulta ainakin kuin muut + siellä on mahdollisuus ostaa vakuutus all-in tilanteessa badbeatiä vastaan.Fiksuinta toki olisi varmaan pelata livenä. Nettikasinot ilman rekisteröitymistä eroaa toisistaan mm. Ota meihin yhteyttä Monet ovat takuulla miettineet, kuinka nettikasinot ilman rekisteröitymistä oikein sitten toimivat?  Kotisivu Kasinoyritykset ovat tehneet kovasti töitä palvelujensa parantamiseksi voidakseen tarjota asioita, joita ei löydy muilta sivustoilta. Kasino ilman tiliä on yksi innovatiivisimmista keksinnöistä koko pelialan historiassa. Pikakasinot tai niin sanotut kasinot ilman rekisteröitymistä ovat yksi nettikasinomaailman uusimmista trendeistä. Kuten myös suositut casino talletus laskulla sivustot. Nettikasinoiden suosio kasvaa joka päivä. Syynä on se, että ihmiset haluavat tuntea adrenaliinia ja jännitystä pelaamalla viihdyttäviä pelejä netissä. Jotkut ihmiset katsovat uhkapeliä harrastuksena, josta he toisinaan nauttivat. Jotkut ammattilaispelaajat näkevät kuitenkin mahdollisuuden ansaita suuremman määrän rahaa. Teknologian kehittyessä päivittäin jopa nettikasinot käyttävät tätä etua houkutellakseen enemmän ihmisiä pelaamaan.
