    I am a horrible piece of ****. I left her in the car, forgot to crack the windows. She drank all the water she had, dehydrated and died. Its all my ****ing fault... I'm ****ing worthless

    That is terrible. Things happen, you can't beat yourself up over it.

    Man that's unfortunate, and I know how you feel. Don't beat yourself up too bad, though. We all make mistakes like that, sometimes things just slip your mind no matter how important they are to you. We had just gotten a kitten a number of years ago and my dumb ass let her out to run knowing full well my dog had an appetite for rodents. Well she mistook the kitten for a little mole or something and tore her to shreds in a matter of seconds. It's always a horrible feeling when something like this happens, but it can't be undone.

    I'm headed home to bury her. I haven't cried this much in a very long time. God I can't believe myself, I had been thinking about a tattoo in her honor, now I guess I have to do it, I owe her so much more then that.

    So sorry. :frown1: I know it doesn't help to say that it as a mistake and you would never hurt her intentionally, but it's true.

    So Sad...

    :eek1: :eek1: :yikes: I am sitting here with tears in my eyes after reading your post. :frown1: :frown1: :frown1: ..I feel very bad about Ruby..undoubtedly she was your favorite pet...but she was sick and going to die anyway--you might have done her a favor,as cruel as that may sound...she had a good life with you!..

    My prayers are with you!..dont feel bad,it was not intentional!..instead,as difficult as it is,remember all the joy she brought into your life,and rejoice the fact she is with God now,and will not have to suffer anymore..I will keep you both in my prayers...try not to blame yourself...Ruby knew you'd never do anything to hurt her... :(

    I have been reading your posts about Ruby for a while now and I, and about everybody else who has read a Ruby post knows how much you loved your pet. It would be inconcievable for me to even think that this would be anything other then an unintentional horrible and tragic mistake. I do hope that you would not be to hard on yourself in your mourning.
    My prayers are with you.

    Alan, i'm truely really sorry to hear that. Ruby was so awesome with all the pictures you showed us for the year I have been hear, and how you talk about her. Just remember the good times you had with her! It was an accident, you didn't try to kill her. So don't blame yourself.
    Your in my prayers tonight brother, keep your chin up and good luck.

    bro I am truly sorry for your loss. I know that there are no words that I could speak to even begin to ease your pain. My thoughts are with you just the same

    Agian sorry to hear about ruby. Don't greive to long. A little while is expected. Not to be nosey but where did you go into that you left her in the car/truck? My wife takes her pet dragon into all stores with her if she takes her with her. Anther hedge hog might help to give your love too.

    this freakin sucks... Ruby picture threads were some of the few that my wife found interesting on the site. He was a cute little guy. After you decided to have the lump removed I was really pullin for him. :(
