Marilyn, I just came across this thread. I'm so sorry to hear about Serena. It's very hard to lose a pet as they are loved ones just like family. I know you'll miss her but at least she isn't suffering anymore.
Take care and emoticon

Hi Christy, thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
I read your blog and wish you all the best. I know you said it's frightening to face surgery and a "whole new you", but the results will be so rewarding. You've done well with your weight loss. Keep up the good work!
Marilyn

Hello Marilyn

I'm not sure about the answer to your question about chihuahua and heart problems but I do know that when the time is right for a new companion your heart will let you know. ((hugs)) I went to Animal Control last week and know that when the time comes I will definately adopt so many unwanted dogs and cats it is heart breaking.

Hi Everybody, thanks again for your love and support.

I've been wondering if heart issues are common to Chihuahuas. The vet never mentioned a heart murmur and enlarged heart during Sasha's examinations until she was at least 10. Serena was diagnosed with those problems on her first visit the day after we brought her home at age 4, 5, or 6. We never knew her true age. If we get another Chi, I would like to be sure her heart is healthy from the beginning. It would be hard to go through this again for a long, long time.

My husband said he thought I would appreciate a break from the constant care that Serena required these past few months, but I don't feel that way. All I can think about and talk about is when and where we'll find our new little companion.

Oh Marilyn, I am so sorry to hear about Serena, my heart is breaking for you and your husband. I know this is such a hard time but I am happy that you found Serena and she was loved very much for the short time she was with you. I'm sure Serena and Sasha are healthy and playing at the Rainbow Bridge until you meet again.

Hugs for you and your husband

Yes, here is fine. We just want to be there for you, and "where" doesn't matter.

It is not possible to change it from one place to another. But it is OK where you put it since we all wanted to know about Serena.

I appreciate everyone's good wishes. When we got back from my doctor's appointment this morning, while he was opening the front door, my husband said the same thing I was thinking... "no greeting." We always had to open the door carefully since Serena was right there waiting for us.

I just realized I probably put this thread in the wrong place. I don't know how to change it. Sorry.

Oh, I am so sorry to hear this. I do understand your feelings. Just this morning I was looking at my drawing of my Sammie and missing him. I can't believe it's been over 2 yrs. since I lost him. I still cry. But at least know that Serena (and Sasha too) had a wonderful home and were so very loved. Unfortunately all dogs (and animals) don't have that luck. I'll be thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers.
Hugs, Carol

Marilyn, very sorry to hear about Serena. It must have been very hard on you. Just know that she will be waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge. It's always difficult to lose a best friend. I still mourn for all my pets. My prayers are with you.

I had difficulty accepting Chiquita's passing. I gave her CPR for quite a while, but she was gone.

Oh Marilyn,
I am so, so, so sorry to hear of Serena's passing. I completly understand you not wanting to accept her being gone and kept talking to and petting her. I wish there were something I could say that would make you feel better, but I know there is NOTHING that will help. Although I know that it does not help your heart that feels ripped out or the hole there, know that she is NOT IN PAIN OR SUFFERING ANY LONGER!! I am praying for you & your family. I have tears in my eyes for you, as I have been there, done that more times then I care to think about. We are all with you, please talk when ever/how ever long you need. Were here for you Marilyn.

~~Starr~~

Marilyn, I am crying tears for you as I know how you are feeling. It was just a year ago that we lost Angel and I still have tears for her occasionally. Your heart is broken. You had a lot of love for Serena and I know she loved you back for all you tried to do for her. I would like to think that Serena and Angel are up above us playing and romping is great health and will be there for us when it is our time. God bless you and keep you in His arms. I am so sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry to hear that. My first Chihuahua passed away after 3 days of seizures. The vet had seen her and gave her meds, but they didn't work.

When I got up this morning Serena wagged her tail in greeting but wouldn't eat and was very listless. Since she didn't eat all day, except for a tiny bit of pureed chicken and her supplement, we decided to take her to the vet tomorrow. Tonight, for the first time she had a seizure and it lasted quite a while. Within an hour she was gone. I couldn't believe it and wouldn't accept it, so I kept petting her and talking to her but her little heart wouldn't start beating again.
