Status of a sick puppy...

Guys, I don't think she's going to make it...
My 12 1/2 year old German Shepard/Doberman mix is headed downhill with blood clots in her brain... my parents went to see her at the vet today and she was not very well at all... We got her when she was months old... She's been to Japan, Hawaii, Iowa, Maine, Texas, Virginia, and all the states in-between, and she's a family member, not a pet. She's the most human canine I know, and this is so hard for me to let her go... I'm going to miss her so much. Jazzie, I love you girl, and I'll see you on the other side. Rest in Peace.

Re: Loss of a Family Member...

Sympathies to you and your family

In March 04, I had to put down my childhood dog of 15 years (Riley - a border collie/shepard mix)) since he wasn't able to walk on his own after what we think was a small stroke on a trip upstate to look at houses. We would take him outside and he had trouble even standing up, and I had to carry him up and down stairs.

I still remember the day my mom and I drove him to the vet, and it was so hard to leave him on the examination table. We got him cremated and I have him in my night table drawer, and always say good night before I got to bed.

I got Riley as a puppy as well (he fit in my two hands), and he was definitely a family member to myself and my mom. He lived through getting hit in the head by a car, and another surgery. I have 3 dogs now, but they will never be the same as Riley. I cannot think of my life without a dog.

Hopefully Jazzie will be able to make a recovery. If not, hopefully you will have time to spend with her before she passes. I know it was tough to see Riley die in front of me, but I wouldn't have had it any other way (if you know what I mean).

My sympathies to your family. I know it's hard but it is part of the circle of life.

I had two cats, one that lived to be 17 and the other 19 years old. The 17 year old one, Greycat (guess what color she was), died while my wife and I were on vacation. She died alone (other than the other cat) and I was torn up about that.

I was with the 19 year old, Callie Mae (she was a calico), when she was put to sleep. She had taken a sudden turn for the worse and couldn't stand up or eat. The doctor said that her kidneys had failed and that she may be suffering. It was a tough decision but at least I was there for her.

In short, I know what you mean Imp.

Re: Loss of a Family Member...

That's so sad.

I lost my Rottie a few years back. He was an abuse rescue animal we got as a "pup".

Now my childhood dog is going crazy. He has cataracts and arthritis so he is almost always sore and jumpy. I have a feeling this fall I'll have to put him down ol' yeller style. He turned on mom a while back and my friends are starting to be afraid of him.

Re: Loss of a Family Member...

couple years ago we had to put my cat to sleep b/c he couldn't stand anymore, wouldn't eat, and was at about half his original body weight. So we stayed with him in the office when he got the medicine to put him to sleep. He died purring b/c I was with him.

Re: Loss of a Family Member...



my heart and sympathies go out to every single one of you who has lost a pet--its amazing how fast these animals become an active part of our life and how human they become the longer we have them...

i lost my first kitten a few years back (he was a year and a year and a 1/2) because he developed a tumor in his stomach the size of a tennis ball, it was so tough on riley because he wasn't able to move much and he could eat much either, we took him to the vet and they decided that it was best to put him down--it was the first time i had ever seen my mom openly weep before

Re: Loss of a Family Member...

I went to visit her today... she's really trying to eat and drink but half the time it just comes back out... she's got zero balance and can't walk without almost falling over. She's a fighter, and tomorrow we'll know if she's going to get better or not.
