I went by my parents house a little earlier to pick up a package that I accidentally had sent there. As I was leaving with my daughter and two older kids that I babysit during the week I felt the car hit something and then I felt us run over it, I remember saying what was that and I look in the mirror and see my step mom screaming and flailing her arms!!!!!! Immediately I realied that I had run over the dog.The dog is a sheltie and literally since the day they got her 12 years ago she always would bark and run circles around a car as it was leaving. She always got out of the way and no one ever thougt twice about it. Well today apparently she decided not to get out of the way. And I ran her over right in front of my step-mom! I got out of the car and the poor dog couldn’t even stand up and it looks like both of her back legs are broken. My step mom is at the vet with her now but I’m sure they will end up having to put her down. My step mom keeps saying it wasn’t my fault cause the dog always gets out of the way but I still feel so awful!

@Ninteenthchance: I’m so sorry this has happened. I’m glad your step mom is not holding you at fault. It sounds like just bad timing and the dog wasn’t quick enough to get out of the way. It’ll be OK.

Oh no! I’m so sorry, I can only imagine how bad you feel as well as feeling so bad for your stepmom. But, like other posters said, it truly was an accident so you can’t beat yourself up over it. Hoping the pup is ok!

🙁 This made me start crying. I am so sorry. This must feel devastating, but remember it was an accident and vets these days can do amazing things. I’ll be thinking about the little sheltie today 🙁

Thank you guys all for your support. Unfortunately my step mom just sent a text to the family saying that they have to put her down. She has several severe injuries and the worst was that her diaphragm was completely separated from other organs and she is having trouble breathing. The surgeries cost thousands of dollars so they have to put her down. Ugh ):
