Lost one of my best lil' buddies this morning...

Wednesday, September 05, 2012

-Peanut (aka Nuthead), the fuzzy face you see by my nickname "Skeetor", could no longer hardly breathe this morning so my poor husband took him to the Vet to be set free. He had a bad heart murmur. He went down hill fast, yesterday he came with me as usual to help me fill the bird feeders with just a couple of coughs and all of a sudden last night he had to hold his head straight out to breathe. Of course, in my own make believe world, I was hoping he was just having one of his bad days and would be better this morning, but this morning he was a lot worse. He could hardly get any breath, had trouble walking... He was my mom's dog and she passed away in 2005 so perhaps he's sitting on her lap now.
He was somewhere between 13 and 15 years old (he was a pound dog, rescued in the nick of time by my mom as he'd been brought by people back 3 times) Farewell to my little tail chaser. He will be soooooo missed!
Okay, I gotta go now....not feeling too Sparky right now...

    As difficult as it is to lose this little and faithful companion of so many years and so much history and companionship, I can honestly say, I have never suffered a greater loss myself. He is running free in heaven now and Mom is trying to catch him! God bless and comfort. Thank you all Vets for being there at the end of our best friend's life,

    Losing a dog is losing the best friend you ever had. Thanks for commenting on my blog about losing Panda last year. But one year ago this month, we adopted 2 dachshunds from a shelter. They have been the joy of our lives the last year. Wally is not happy unless he is sitting on someones lap. Peanut sleeps in her cage most of the time but comes out to visit. She is older and probably in an abusive situation all her life. We don't know. But Wally is still a puppy, not quite 2. Hope you get a new dog soon.

    Skeetor , I just read about Peanut... I am soooo sorry.. it's so hard to have to say goodbye to our little furry friends. They're part of our family. I really do believe that Peanut is up there with your mom. Have you ever read the rainbow bridge? It's a poem about our little pets that have passed away. emoticon emoticon Brenda

    I think our most transformational blessings are often contained in the relationships to which we must one day say good-bye. Peanut's story is one of joy, a credit to your mom and you, in caring for her rescue. It sure takes special people to finally give a forever home and forever love to one who has repeatedly been abandoned. Hugs and love to you. Your Spark is still strong, but maybe you just need it for yourself right now.

    I'm sooo sorry about your puppy. It's just like losing a family member. Especially so if you've had them a long time. And I'll bet he IS with your Mom!!!

    I feel your pain. I have had to have two dogs put down in my life time and I know the grief you can go through. Time will heal it. I always said I would never get another dog, but I still think I will rescue another one some day. Best wishes.

    I so feel for you. Can't tell you just how sorry I am. The house will seem a little lonely for a while, but you can get thru this. Hugs, my friend.

    So sorry for your loss. One of the kindest things we can do with the beings we take into our care is relieve their suffering. The most important thing we do for our animals is love them, the second most is to make the time they spend with us as gentle as we can.

    I hope your heart heals quickly and that the joy your shared with Peanut eventually overshadows the loss you feel at his passing.

    I'm sorry for your loss! Pets can be so much like family and losing them creates a real void in your life and home. I hope you find comfort in knowing that your little guy is in a better place and you did the right thing.
