Hit a dog with my truck tonight, Feel like shit.
Driving to the store tonight, dark out, black lab comes bouncing out of the treeline right in front of me. I hit the brakes, dodged right as he ran left. He turns around right into the path of my truck. I hit him going about 40 (I think) after slowing down from 65 mph.

I pulled over, turned on my hazard lights, grabbed my flashlight from the truck, ran back to find him about 20 feet off into the bushes gasping and crying. His whole back half was crushed, innards dangling out, obviously beyond rescue. It was the most depressing thing I have dealt with in a long time.

He wouldn't let me touch him, and snapped at me when I tried to give him aid. It was obvious he was near death and in great pain.

I resigned myself to end his suffering.

I asked God to help me aim true and not make it worse. I never have been an active christian, and often struggled with my personal beliefs about God. Nonetheless, I told the dog I was sorry, that I loved him, and through the tears was able to fire one shot from my .45, ending his life.

Animals are innocent and of pure spirit- actions not predicated on malice or hate. I feel like I deserve something bad to happen to me now. I almost hope something does. Guilt I suppose even though I was unable to prevent it.

Yep, a bad day. I sat alone in my truck in the parking lot of the store for about an hour as tears flooded my face and shirt. Tomorrow I will return to collect him and give him a proper grave under the pine tree in my back yard.

Feels bad man.

I have done it also OP. It makes you feel real bad but it was nothing you could do about it. Dont beat yourself up. I am sure the dog understood you were helping him become pain free. Dogs have that extra sense that humans do not.

Re: Hit a dog with my truck tonight, Feel like shit.
Thanks for sharing OP. Very intense experience you had. I was once in the car when my grandpa hit a deer and then had to shoot it. It was so sad. I replied to say a couple things. That sadness that we experience is good if it lets us see the beauty in life and the fragility of our forms. It is a gift in that way. You wrote that you were feeling so guilty that you kinda hoped something bad would befall you, but I hope you have already been through it in hitting the dog. Best wishes to you in making peace and growing from this experience.

It was an accident OP, you did the right thing, ending his misery. Glad you are going back to bury him. The sad thing is his owners will never know what happened to him...Try not to be upset it was not your fault.

I hit a possum tonight. Bothered me as well. Not as much as the bunny I hit once though. That bothered me a little more because my radio wasn't on and I heard him squeak. I would cry my eyes out if I hit a dog. Even more than if I hit a person.

Re: Hit a dog with my truck tonight, Feel like shit.
Thank you.

I'm signing off now, but thought it self indulgent to post "A Dogs Prayer" and come to terms with my emotions.

A dog's prayer:

Treat me kindly, my beloved master, for no heart in all the world is more grateful for kindness than the loving heart of me.

Do not break my spirit with a stick, for though I should lick your hand between the blows, your patience and understanding will more quickly teach me the things you would have me do.

Speak to me often, for your voice is the world's sweetest music, as you must know by the fierce wagging of my tail when your footstep falls upon my waiting ear.

When it is cold and wet, please take me inside... for I am now a domesticated animal, no longer used to bitter elements... and I ask no greater glory than the privilege of sitting at your feet beside the hearth... though had you no home, I would rather follow you through ice and snow than rest upon the softest pillow in the warmest home in all the land... for you are my god... and I am your devoted worshiper.

Keep my pan filled with fresh water, for although I should not reproach you were it dry, I cannot tell you when I suffer thirst. Feed me clean food, that I may stay well, to romp and play and do your bidding, to walk by your side, and stand ready, willing and able to protect you with my life, should your life be in danger.

And, beloved master, should the Great Master see fit to deprive me of my health or sight, do not turn me away from you. Rather hold me gently in your arms as skilled hands grant me the merciful boon of eternal rest...and I will leave you knowing with the last breath I drew, my fate was ever safest in your hands.

I know it's easier said than done, but at all times we have to remember that this is not our primary reality, but more like a temporary stay in an elaborate dream, our soul wearing a space suit we call our body. Also, that nothing happens to us if we don't "permit" it on a higher level first. By this logic, the dog had it coming, and he is now fine wherever he'd returned, by what we refer to as dying. By this same logic, for some unknown reason, you had this event coming too, with all the associated feelings. The meaning of life is to experience, and it's impossible to fail at it. And you shouldn't think that something bad needs to happen to you, as you haven't done a single thing wrong.

Your post made me cry too. It was not your fault op and you must forgive yourself. It was a blessing that you were able to put him out of his misery. You did all you could to keep from hitting him and at least you stopped when most probably would not. I am so sorry for your pain. Take care OP and blessings to you.

Re: Hit a dog with my truck tonight, Feel like shit.
I was walking back from the gas station last tonight and I seen what looked like a husky puppy in the grass and he had passed on. Someone must have hit him. I stopped shed a tear and told the little puppy to rest in peace. It really broke my heart to see that. It made me think about all my pets and how short and life can be.

I'm sorry you had a shitty night but it wasn't your fault and I believe you did the right thing.
"Be warned, my children six will visit followed by the crumbling of time
itself. Before the coming of Shangra La, a dark Carnival will sweep across
the land, as a shadow, plagued with destruction. A parade of freaks,
jugglers, and death. This wretched nightmare is led by six faces. Three have
come three have gone. The fourth emerges now. He walks among
us as a shadow, void of light, powered by your own darkness, strengthened by
your own wickedry. A horrid reflection of your very own deep desires cast
and reflected back upon yourself. Brothers and Sisters! The time has come
for the Necromaster. The unleashing of the fourth joker's card. The arrival
of The Great Milenko"

It is enough you feel bad OP. The guilt you feel will take care of any Karma you may feel you having coming your way. It was an accident, but you dealt with the situation in a commendable way. You could have left the dog to die what may have taken hours. You didn't do that though ... you put him down with compassion. I am sorry it happened, but that dog already forgives you, so please forgive yourself.

My pet dog as a kid lived 15 years. We got him as a pup. One hot summer day one of my brothers decided to take him to a park. My moron brother went off to play frisbee, my dog went to find a nice shady spot to get out of the heat and died.till have his collar with license and name tag hanging on my wall. It's been 20 years.
