My baby boy Blue

by Ms Robinson
(Dallas T )

My baby was fine and normal this past Wednesday. Then on Thursday he started vomiting along with bloody diarrhea. I thought he may have ate something outside and planned on taking him to the vet Friday after work. Instead on my lunch my daughter called to say he wasn’t moving but still breathing. My baby was 5yrs old and I’ve had him for four years. Every day when I come home from work he would meet me at the door excited and happy. Friday (yesterday) when my daughter told me he wouldn’t move for a treat which he would normally jump for, I knew I had to hurry home. Again he normally greets me but yesterday he just couldn’t. Instead when he heard that I was home he started making a weird noise and moving his arms and legs while laying on his side. To me this meant he was saying hi mom I’m glad you’re home but I can’t move or maybe he thought he was moving but his body had already begun to shut down. I completely lost it at this point. I grabbed a blanket and rushed him to the ER vet. My baby was making noises and gasping for air the entire 6 minute ride and I felt helpless. Once I pulled up he took one last long gasp for air and I rushed him inside where the doctor met us. I broke down in the lobby and a nurse lead me to a room. The doctor came in 5 minuets later to advise he couldn’t bring my baby back. Again, I broke down. This was yesterday and I am still in one of the worse pains I’ve ever felt. I can’t stop crying. His blood is in the carpet. His toys and things are still in their place. I feel numb. I feel like a piece of me is gone. Im crying as I type because I’m in so much pain and I don’t know what to do. I was his mom. I should have done more. I should have taken him immediately instead of waiting. I haven’t slept and I just can’t believe this has happened. Maybe someone can help me I need to know how people deal with this. This is too much and I feel like its my fault.

Archie went downhill very quickly
by: Stephens family UK

On Friday 9th March 2018,Archie boy,our miniature Schnauzer enjoyed his usual morning walk & we didn't have any concerns for him.During the afternoon Archie started being sick,watery,as didn't want his lunch,then kept wanting to be let out in garden,but came back after 5 mins,looked very restless.About 6p.m. It was starting to get dark,Archie wanted to go out in garden again,this time didn't come back and it was raining,so I got my coat on to find him hiding under bushes.Got him in and dryer up,then he was sick with blood.Took him to Vets Hospital 7p.m.They checked his temperature and heart,said he must of caught a bug,so long he was drinking water,but to bring him back the next day for blood test if he gets worse.Saturday 10th March,morning Archie was lifeless,before we could get him to Vets Hospital,I could see fear in his eye,then had what looked like a heart attack,his head went up,took his last breath.Archie died lying on his favourite Kitchen Settee,with all his family around him.We built a Wooden Coffin,engraved 'Archie boy' and a heart,he is buried in our front garden,with pot flowers,where we can see him from our Living Room Window.Can't believe Archie has gone,such a good boy,we loved him very much and our home doesn't feel the same without him.We feel so sad and teary,our hearts are broken,we will never forget Archie.Rest In Peace our beloved Archie boy in doggy heaven.

Thank you all
by: Ms Robinson

I appreciate the sympathy and kind words very much. I have tried to ease the pain and guilt by reading stories online from fur parents who also lost their pets suddenly. It helps to know that I’m not alone in the way I feel. I miss my baby and his bed is still on the side of mine. It’s quiet without his barking and lonely without him being in bed with me. I still find myself wanting to give him a taste of my food when I eat.

The doctor said he had gastrointestinal disease and probably had it for a while without symptoms.

Again thank you all very much and sorry for your losses as well

Sorry for your loss
by: Beth

I'm sorry for your loss. What did the vet say? Was it Parvo? Unfortunately dogs can go downhill fast and sometimes we don't realize how serious it is until too late. Again I'm really sorry for the pain I know you feel.

Please know this
by: David

Ms Robinson, please know you did nothing wrong. It sounds to me like you took your baby to the vet as soon as possible. I lost my Schnauzer September 27, and I feel the same as you. You are not alone. I'm almost unable to type this because my eyes are tearing up. We love our dogs deeply. I found a book on my kindle called My dog has died what do I do. I recommend that and maybe even go to a grief counselor. Please know there is support for you.

I'm so sorry
by: Jackie

Your post made me cry. I feel your pain. I have no words for you. Don't beat yourself up. Perhaps he's time here on earth was done. You'll never know. Maybe an autopsy will help ease your pain. So sorry you lost your little dog.
