Members angel7710 Posted July 9, 2010 Members Report Share Posted July 9, 2010 July 7th my beautiful girl Angel died extremely suddenly, she was 8 years old, healthy, happy and in great shape. I am told she had a stroke, it was so sudden, we had just started our walk she played with the neighbors dog for a minute, then a few steps later she started walking funny, I immediately went back to the house, I could tell something wasn't right so we headed for the emergency vet (7pm or so) but she wasn't breathing by the time we got there. The vet said they could not resuscitate her, and like that over the course of 15-20mins she was gone. I'm having a harder time with it today than yesterday, I guess it's setting in that she's really gone. We had such a strong bond, she was my best friend and she meant the world to me. The house just feels so lifeless and quiet. I can't help thinking there was more I could have done to save her. I have horrible thoughts like maybe the vet didn't try hard enough or at all to resuscitate her, maybe if my regular vet were open they would've been able to, and the chain of events just keeps running through my head. I miss her every moment of the day, from when I wake up, when she'd come to my bedside, yawn stretch give me a kiss and ask to go out, to the time I go to bed when she'd try to lay on me cause she could never be close enough. Our weekend hikes, our daily walks, or just sitting outside watching for squirrels. I miss her so much, I thought we had at least 5-8 more years together. People just keep saying well at least she went quick and didn't suffer, and that may be true, but she was just too young and healthy. She had a lot more life to live, and I could tell she was fighting for it in her last moments. I just can't believe she's gone.-Dave Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
