Today, after I watched my dog get run over by a car, I sat on the side of the road holding him and crying. And just before he died, he licked the tears off my face. MMT

From one dog lover to another, I'm really sorry for your loss.

Selfless to the end. RIP.

This made me cry. Deepest sympathies.

This made me cry, I do not know what I will do on the day that I lose my dog. I am sorry for your loss :(

I burst out into tears when I read this, and then my dog proceeded to whimper. Sorry for your loss :c

Made my cry. I held my dog while he was euthanized after weeks of suffering. I cried when the anestezia kicked in and he acted real scared and nervos... and moments afret that calmly going to sleep not knowing the next injection will be lethal.

That made me feel sick and cry because as I read that, my dog was begging for a cracker in my hand. I am so sorry for your loss. :'(

I'm very sorry that your dog died. I love animals and don't know what I'd do if that happened to me. But I must note on how this comment got a bunch of people saying "omg it made me cry." When the ones about other people dying burst out in fights about God or something. It's kinda funny, hah.

this made me cry. I'm sitting in the living room with my roommate on the other couch, and as I read this, I felt that stinging in my eyes and nose that I feel right when I'm about to burst into tears. I had to run upstairs to the bathroom to avoid crying in front of anyone. I imagined if that were to happen to me, and that just made me want to drive the 4 and a half hours back to my parent's house where my dog Buddy is, just to see him, pet him, play with him, and hug him. I saved him from being shot in the head when he was only a few weeks old, my dad was doing the shooting. I loved that puppy from the moment I first laid eyes on him, and knew, just KNEW, that I had to save him. It's been 6 years since I saved Buddy, and I know he's going to pass away soon. so any story like this one makes me miss him and feel sad because I know he's old and I know he will die soon, and I don't know how I will handle it when that happens. I am so so sorry for your loss, because I really can relate to how you feel. I've lost 3 dogs that I was very very close to already, and that is soon to become 4. I hope it doesn't hurt so much as time goes on, but do not forget the love you had for your dog, and do not forget the love your dog had for you. ever.

this made me cry too.

this is the first MMT that has actually made me cry...

This made me burst into tears. I am so sorry for your loss.

Good thing I'm not the only one crying right now...

Looks like I'm not the only person who started tearing at this. To zjd0503, it's because animals, dogs especially, in this case, are selfless. They love you wholeheartedly without expecting anything in return, pure true love. When something like this happens, we recognize the less for what it truly is.

I've cried over these posts before, but reading this one just made me tear up in no time at all. I lost my cat to the same situation a few years ago and it was honestly one of the hardest times I've yet to go through; I'm so sorry for your loss.

This is the first story that has made me cry... And my Sister and Mother.

I'm def crying as I type this ... I'm sorry for your loss (L)

aw this is the first story on mmt to make me cry i'm so sorry about your loss

I know I'm not the first, but i cried after reading this, too. I won't say I'm sorry for your loss, because that is the most beautiful moment anyone could have. I'm crying as I say that I hope you can appreciate how beautiful a soul your dog has, and I hope he will visit you in your dreams like my cat has been visiting me, after she passed due to cancer. Feel blessed for his love, as I do.

I'm crying as I type this comment. :( I'm sorry for your loss.

#2 - Fluff - Selfless to the end, So true, Im so sorry for your loss.

I don't own a dog, and I have never owned one, but I'm actually crying a bit... ok, a lot.

this brought a tear, ( ok, more than a tear) to my eye, from a fellow dog owner, i am really sorry for your loss

24: When a dog licks you, it's kissing you. How is that gross, your dog loves you and it's trying to be affectionate? Plus, he was dying. If someone was dying and they tried to kiss you, would you push them away? This MMT is so, so beautiful. :( I love it, and I feel so bad

Im so sad... My Frenchbulldog Rocky was runndown by a car today... My boy is gone... It wasnt his time.... I cant stop crying... Please can anybody help me?????

i cant stop crying. my dog got ran over a few months ago and i wish i could have atleast had a moment like this to say goodbye. im so sorry for your loss, i hope that you're doing okay. i know how much it can hurt

I, as many other, began crying. I had to collect myself after this. I personally have two dogs and a cat, who I absolutely adore. I let them sleep in my bed and everything. I can't imagine what it would be like loosing one of them. I am truly sorry for your loss. Your dog had a wonderful soul, and it looked like it cared more about you crying than it was dying. That is remarkable, even when dogs are so selfless. You raised him well, dear. Just keep him in your memory, and hopefully, things will sort out. 26: Unfortunately, there isn't much to do about it. But if you just remember the good times, he'll still live. Not inside you, but because of the memories. That's basically all you can do. I'm sorry for your loss too.

I moved from my mother's house a few months ago, and I couldn't bring my dog with me. She's almost 15 now, and everytime I think her end might be close and that most likely I won't be there when it happens, it breaks my heart. And even though she never lived in this appartment, almost every night when I get home from work, I expect her to be right behind the door waiting for me. I am really sorry for your loss, that dog really loved you.

this was the only mmt that has ever made me cry. i even signed up just to comment on this. I just can't get over how sweet your poor dog was. Spending his last moments trying to comfort you.

I am a guy and I am not ashamed to say that I found myself crying at this.

I know your pain. I wish I had only been there to hold my dog.

My dog got run over just a couple of days ago. This seriously made me start to cry! I didn't even get to see him one last time, and I was always thinking he was annoying, but now I really miss him!!! I am truly grateful for getting to spend the time I had with him now!!! My other dog is dejected, she's always sniffing around trying to find him, and this story just made me think of how kind and loving dogs are. They will do anything to make their owners happy!!!

and we think WE are the peak of God's creation...... Only animals can love like He does.

i read this in the sad category and after reading about the people who lost loved ones i didnt cry untill i read this one. i guess i feel more to animals then people.

it makes me cry. it's too sad. Even the dog has life, life is unstable, it may lose anytime.

i'm so sorry and i can understand your feeling . maybe at that moment ,sending away your sorrow is the most important things in his life.

I just lost my lil chihuahua today the same way..his name was red and he looked just like the taco bell dog, ihe was nine years old and I never imagend lossing him. He was so smart and his facial expression he showed let you know what mood he was in...anyway me and my family where walking up to foodlion and red of course was ahead of the pack.he would run off and explore but still follow us.well he crossed the street and before I could see it coming a car hit him..i ran to him and picked him up out the street and held him on the side of the road crying and stayed with him toll his last heart beat...im just glade he died as soon as it happened.a friend I just met recently pulled up and help me bring him home....my cusion came over so after and helped me bury my furry lil brother. So I totally understand how u feel....ill well miss him...just like im sure you miss urs...im sorry for ur lost.

cried!! RIP

Aw, that is so sweet. Dogs are so selfless. That's so sad; I'm sorry for your loss.

made me cry too...I cannot imagine.

I lost my dog unexpectedly 11 months ago. I miss her so much. This reminds me of the night before she died. My brother and I told her to go if she was in pain. I came home from work the next day and she passed away in our hallway. We have since adopted a lovely Sadie Lady and I love her so much! But what Gracie taught me is to love Sadie every day.

This made me tear up.

I am so sorry about dog. This made me cry. I can't imagine what you are going through. My daughter's dog got ran over by their drunk landlord, He said he did not see the dog. Husky was a fairly big dog. I have cried ever since she told me. They took him to the vet but he could not be saved. May our dogs rest in peace. They are at the Rainbow Bridge running free and they are all better now. Prayers for you. God Bless

Today i was just scrolling through and this caught my eye. This gained my attention at how much an animal can care for a human being something not of its kind. The love that an animal and a person can feel is different from all other types. An animal can be your best friend whom you tell everything to because they wont start any type of drama. They are a true bestfriend. When I read this status it moved me it MMT. You had a great connection with your dog a strong bond. So when your dog left this world he/she did not want you to mourn over his/her death. Your animal wanted you to be strong, everyone says dogs are ignorant. But its really about how you treat them and the way you act towards them. It sounds like you had a real true friend. I am sorry you lost him.

This story breaks my heart, I am so sorry for your loss.

I love my cat like shes the only one i have in the world. and if i ever lost her, i would probably loose my mind. Im very sorry for your loss.

I'm sorry for your loss , ;( I know how you feel... Today my dog had just got run over today by a vehicle and I've had her for 13 years. I'm only 19 years old so it was a shock for me to see this happen after so many years I had with her . Me and my dad let her out of the house so she can go to the restroom because me and my dad were cleaning his vehicle outside the driveway . I see my dog across the road very unaware because this never happens and she automatically runs once a vehicle passes. I saw my best friend die today and it was very emotional for me to see her in her condition. She was so small and fragile and I thought she would live for a long time until I saw it happen with my own two eyes . She didn't know better and I miss her so much. She was my little sister to me and part of the family. I just wish I can go back 6 hours so I could've saved her . I loved her so much ,Her name was chula and today was my last goodbye to her . My prayers are still with her and for any others who have had any dogs passed away I'm truly sorry for any losses you had
