My Little Gray Man
As tears stream down my face I am hardly able to type. We had to put our beloved 14 and a half year old mini schnauzer down this morning. I am in shock and keep thinking this is a bad dream.
Schnapps lived a long happy life as my baby. He was always another child to us. We picked him up when he was 8 weeks old.
At 5 am this morning he started flipping around in his bed. I comforted him, hugged him, kissed him and quickly drove him to the emergency vet clinic. I won't go in to details about his condition but it came on suddenly…we played last night and he was fine!
We had to make the decision to put him down and it was the hardest thing I have ever gone through. I hope we made the right decision. I feel blessed that he was not in pain and died with his family by his side and in peace. I can't imagine going through this ever again in my life.
I miss you, Schnapps, already. You brightened my day and helped me through tough times. I love you so much!
I have never lost a pet before and I am beside myself…how long with this horrible feeling last? My heart aches and I can't stop crying. I found this site and thought it might help me get through the next few days.
Thanks in advance to all the schnauzer lovers out there!
