Just my thoughts....
Life sucks sometimes.....
Published on March 24, 2016 By RedneckDude In Everything Else








 


Feeling sad today. My best buddy in the world, Spanky, died this morning at 6:30 AM.
He apparently had a heart attack.

He was a good dog. I miss him already.

We were close. He loved me and showed it. Life will go on, but it'll never be the same......

So sorry for your loss Jim. A year ago I lost one of my two cats. He was the older one named Buddy. Mr. Fidge was somewhat lethargic for awhile. In time there'll be another Buddy to futz around with.

Sorry for your loss, Jim. I truly am. I don't want to presume, but maybe that big heart of yours has room for another lil buddy who needs the love you have to give? Maybe down the road a bit.

 

Maybe. For now, we still have one with a heart murmur and arrhythmia. Losing her companion may kill her. I hope not.

 

To all of you, a big thanks for support. I knew you guys would help me through this.

 

The hardest part was carrying him out to the car, for his last ride to the vet.

 

He died in our bed, we woke just in time to see him draw his last breath.

Sorry I'm late. Been under the weather lately. My heartfelt best thoughts go out to you. Sorry for your loss.

That's why I can't go out in public with Doc anymore.

Should have told me...I'd have let your ears and leg alone, Rex. And your nose isn't all that cold...wet, yes.

So sorry for your loss, Red! I used to have dogs, so I know exactly how that feels like.

I guess maybe it's a redneck thang, but this dog slept in the same bed as I. Not having him there will take some adjustment. Gonna be a long night.

Real sorry for your loss, Jim.

Have lost many over my lifetime...dogs...cats...birds etc... it's always such a devastatingly sad time... they leave pawprints on our hearts and we are never the same...

You should at least be comforted by the fact he died in his own surroundings rather than having the scary journey to the vet to be put to sleep...that... is even more gut wrenching if it is possible... I'm so glad your bed was his last resting place with the comfort of you near.

If your other dog is not well...might be a bit of an ask to bring a younger dog into the home...but hopefully, there's an older dog sitting in a shelter who might find a loving home with you at some stage, when you're ready...

heartfelt commiserations...

I know what you are feeling Jim, when I lost my little Chihuahua a few months ago, it was a tough time, and I still miss him.

So sorry to hear of your loss, Jim, losing a loved pet is never easy.  we lost our Toby, a Shitsu/Maltese cross, in a dog attack.  He was savaged by a rottweiler and we couldn't bear to see him suffering with such severe injuries so had him euthanased to end his pain.  It was a truly hard decision but it was the right one for him.

Fortunately, a fox terrier named Angel was brought into our lives and her presence has brought much joy and happiness.  Toby will never be replaced, or forgotten, but Angel is so cute and loveable she does help ease the pain and sense of loss.

Keep yer chin up, Jim, You'll find another 'buddy' somewhere along the way and start a whole new relationship with another loveable pooch.

While on the subject of dogs....

A former work colleague once told me that he raced greyhounds in his spare time.

And I just had to ask: "Have you ever beaten one?"

 

Just to help bring a little levity to a sombre subject.

 

And yeah, I'm also sorry to hear of your loss, Tom.  Sadly, our pets leave an empty place in our hearts when they pass, and hopefully you too can find yourself a new companion to love and be loved by.

Well, our vet says we're mistaken, and that dogs don't have heart attacks.   

 

He says Spanky had a stroke, more likely.

 

And I don't like the word "disposal". Which is what they call their service. Seems he'll be put in a special container, and the city will pick him up and put him in the landfill.   So sad...

Thanks, guys, for the support.
