Sometimes knowing something logically, as a thinking, feeling human being doesn't really help.

Logically, I know that we can't blame the dogs for what happened to Buckley. They're dogs. They don't understand. They would have just been playing, and they wouldn't have meant any harm.

But ...

It's hard to look at them the same way now. It's hard to accept that they didn't mean any harm. Bucks would have been terrified, and he was on his own, I wasn't there for him.

But the fact is, they killed him.

And trying to live with that fact is hard.

Trying to live with the guilt is hard.

I'm sorry, Buckley-Bunny. I'm so sorry.
