JCD1 asks: "Yesterday, I was taking our 2 young Chihuahuas for a walk in my electric scooter, as I am handicapped due to a degenerative muscle disease. The youngest dog, Mason, had just turned 1 year old on September 9th. Both dogs were running and playing and chasing each other as they always would do. Mason ran right under the front wheel of my scooter, and I was unable to stop and ran over him, killing him instantly. I have never experienced this much pain and guilt over our other animal losses. I can't stop thinking about Mason, how I was responsible for his death, and the pain I created for my wife and I. I would be most grateful for any advice that can help me through this very difficult time."
