  • This is quite perplexing to me because dogs can swim. Is it cold, maybe it was unable to swim properly due to hypothermia. At any rate, all you can do is apologize profusely. Even that will not bring her dog back to her, but a heartfelt apology never ever hurts. Maybe call your homeowner's insurance and see if there is anything that they can do to help compensate her, as it happened on your property? I'm not entirely certain what would be appropriate in these circumstances. I am very sorry that this has happened to you.

  • I don't even know. Good luck in the situation. I think sorry is all you can do

  • Oh wow, I'm so sorry... You have to know this isn't your fault. It's hard to say what to do in this situation...

  • You better hope the owner of the dead dog does not call animal control on you. You need to be more responsible for your dog. She prob felt it was safe for her dog in her fenced yard and because of your laziness and your dogs actions her pet is now dead..

  • Fixing your fence is one definite way to show her youre sorry. There are plenty of ways to get your dogs digging under control.

  • When did the dog get out? She must not have looked very long for it,or in the obvious places first.Why did the dog jump in the pool do you think?Don't feel too bad.It's partially her fault too.
