Thank you for your reply. That is a very good thought about getting
another dog in her memory...to me she was my pup even though
she was eleven years old. True, maybe one day or someday , I will be
ready for another dog but until then I will take it one say at a time.View Thread
I was just wondering if it is normal to still miss my dog
After she passed away three years ago. People tell me to
get another dog but I feel I can't because it is like replacing her in some way.
I loved her soooo much amd still can't bring myself to get another dog..
If i see other Labs like her ,I pet them and I still want to cry because I miss my girl.
Maybe it is just me being silly about it?
What do you guys think?View Thread
Hello everyone, it has been eight months since my baby girl passed away. I still miss her terribly and her poor mate left behind by himself probably wonders what happened to her ,why she didn't come back.
Is it selfish of me if I don't want to replace her or get another dog? My husband thinks we should get another dog to give to her companion that she left behind but I can't seem to do it. It still hurts too much just to even think of it. What do you guys think?View Thread
I am sorry to hear TZ is ill but it would depend on the severity of the kidney disease, discuss with your vet first and then decide the best option for your cat since TZ can't speak for himself , you are his voice. I too had to euthanize my cat of eleven year (Mickey) only because he became ill with the issue of the science diet can food I gave him and it was recalled after the incident. He developed kidney failure and couldn't function at all nor eat. He became dehydrated and was hospitalized for three days and he still wouldn't thrive, so we had a long talk with his vet and decided to euthanize him because he was in such misery. This was in the year of 2007 of December. I ordered a casket for him and had him buried in a pet cemetery. We loved him sooo much and still miss him.View Thread
I am sorry to hear about your loss of Charlie . Just know that you did everything possible to help him and I am sure that Charlie knows that too. I know it's hard to let go when you love someone so much like you did Charlie but you got to remember that he is not suffering anymore and is at peace now.
I too lost my 10 year old yellow Lab/Mix in May of 2010. She passed away of lung cancer that I didn't know about and she showed no signs of being ill ,either. Apparently,oxygen wasn't reaching her brain and she couldn't get up to walk or answer me either. I was so baffled by her sudden illness that I still don't want to accept another dog to replace her because it hurts too much ,right now.
I hope you will always keep Charlie's love and memory in your heart and that in return you were loved too just like he was by you.View Thread
What a beautiful poem. It made me cry because that is how I imagine my beautiful girl doing when we meet again. I too lost my yellow lab/mix of 10 years. Nikita passed away in May of 2010. She suddenly sat down on the ground after barking at the neighbors dog and didn't get up to seek shelter from the rain. She never exhibited any signs of illness except a limping from her left leg. I went to her and tried to get her out of the rain and she wouldn't respond to her name or me. It seemed like she didn't comprehend that I was there. She had her jaws clenched tight and breathing hard. We removed her out of the rain and I talked to her but all she did was wag her tail at me. It was like 7:30 pm , so we took her to the vet and they gave her oxygen and took x-rays, along with lab work. The lab work came back that she had high liver enzymes ,triple the amount of normal plus the x-ray showed cancer in her lungs. The vet said that the cancer was spreading from some other organ in her body and the diagnosis was not good for her. We tried to take her home but she couldn't be without oxygen at all. She stopped responding to me and became glassy-eyed and all she did was keep her nose in the oxygen cone. I knew then that it was bad. So, we decided to spend some time with her to say our goodbye's and she was put to sleep. I stayed with her the whole time and cried when she started convulsing because the oxygen wasn't reaching her brain anymore. I had her cremated and put in a rosewood box and she sits on my dresser with a picture of her on it. I loved her soooo much that I wish that she was still here with me. She left behind a big hole in my heart and also her partner that misses her horribly and howls sometimes at night when he misses her. They were always together playing and sleeping together. He was never too far from her. Apparently, he loved her too.
