My family has been devastated by 3 of our dogs dying.

PricklePatch posted 6/14/2020 22:59 PM

We have been expecting, Sadie and Teddy to need to go over the rainbow bridge, they were 15 or older. We had them 16 years came into rescue as special needs puppies. Sadie was not adoptable, Teddy could have been but my daughter with our guidance trained, he was her service dog. Sadie cries if she canít get in bed with me. She lost her bladder on me 3 times this week. Sadie also had heart failure. She still tried to play. Ted, it became clear Tuesday his cancer had effected his brain. Thursday he was clearly in pain. We took them into the vet and put them both to sleep. We were devastated. We were still packing for the move that only half happened Friday. Malibu my service dog started vomiting once in a while. By Sat morning she was at the emergency vet. She had eaten a whole bunch of odd stuff. The worst was nylon fluff. This would have been her 4 th abdominal surgery unless then two years. I loved she saved my life. The vet said since we basically tried everything she agreed putting her to sleep would be best as it looked like her intestines were about to perforate. So we, lost our Sadie, Teddy and Malibu all in three days. I was hysterical. I have calmed down. My daughter is having panic attacks, but not self harming. My husband is just sad.

I am so sorry. I lost my cat 7 months ago and it still hurts. I canít imagine three pups. Knowing you did the right thing doesnít help the pain much. Sending you healing...

Oh my gosh. That is so terrible!

I very recently lost one of my dogs - Daisy - that was 14 years old. I had to have her put down, and it is always so very sad. But to lose three in such a short amount of time is unthinkable.

Although itís not something that always helps at a time like this, it is true that it is better that they are not in pain. But it certainly doesnít make us miss them any less.

So sorry for your loss.

That is tragic beyond words. I hope you all are doing ok, and that you find some support animals for your family soon.
They can keep us sane for sure.

(((And strength))))

Oh, this is terrible... I'm so sorry!

I just cannot imagine the magnitude of that kind of loss, all at once. I have tears for you.

Think of it THIS way, if you can -- they are ALL together at the Rainbow Bridge. I fully believe in the Rainbow Bridge..... and they will be waiting on you later.

I am so sorry. It's so hard to lose one, but 3 so quickly together is just heartbreaking. Prayers.

Oh man what a horrible thing to have happen all at once. I'm so very sorry.

I am so sorry when I lose a furbaby it is like losing a family member.

Just want to say I'm so sorry for your losses.

Thank you! I Agee about the bridge. Maybe Mali thought her bff Sadie needed her as she was shy.

Last night I threw a green bean under the table were Sadie would sit. My husband said, you realize Sadie isnít there. It was just a automatic thing for me.

I am coping. When I told my daughter she said I hope you have a Xanax. I told her did, but I wasnít taking it, I need to grieve not numb myself.

I canceled the dentist today, I just couldnít go out.

Matcha my daughters golden wasnít eating at the new house. So she sent him home with my husband. She kept her schnauzer. Matcha looked for the little guys and was confused. I laid Ion my bed with him for a while. Then fixed his food and he ate. Even pups grieve.

I let Malibuís breeder know, she only has a unsuitable for service work dog available. She said there is a female, that she is going to ask them to retire early for me. So I can start training her for my needs. I could get a puppy ASAP, but I like the older dogs.

I certainly agree about the older dogs. I have two rescues. A very tiny long-hair Chihuahua and a small Chiweenie, ages 6 and 5. They were a bonded pair when I got them. I've always had Golden Retrievers and my best buddy passed at age 15 two years ago. I still miss him SO much. I've thought about adopting a senior Golden as I have land and lots of space for one. But these little dogs I have are the most jealous dogs I've ever seen. They are spoiled. They don't even like me petting the outside barn cats. They pout.
