Our Dog is Gone

After our party Saturday night the kids heard the dog running around the room his crate was in, he had gotten out of it. No biggie, he has opened the crate before but never in the room he was in. He had gotten into stuff and chewed lots of it up. They took him outside, fed him, let him run a bit, and returned him to his crate. The next morning I smelled something awful as I came down the stairs and got Cyr up to take him out knowing he had probably pooped in his crate. He did. He was lazy all day Sunday, not really eating or playing hard. Monday night he still wasn't better so we decided to take him to the vet Tuesday. Yesterday he was fine, wagging his tail not playful but much better so we decided not to take him. I took the kids to Vacation Bible School and he was walking around drinking water, seemed fine. I left to pick up the kids and got a call from DH, Cyr had called him b/c the dog laid down and wouldn't get up. I was home within 10 minutes and found him dead. What is so shocking is that he was fine, he seemed so much better and active. My kids and DH are devastated. We had to drag him onto a tarp and then a wagon to secure him from wild animals. My DH is going to wrap him up and take him to the vet in the morning b/c we tried and can't bury him here. The ground is so hard we dug for 2 hours and couldn't get past the rock and roots.

I am sorry about the dog...I know that you had issues and wanted him to go but really do you think the vet could find out if there was something maybe he ate outside...do a doggie autopsy>?>? I would be really worried and concerned...

Im so sorry, it is hard to lose a pet. Especially suddenly after you had taken him in to the vet.

I'm so sorry to read that. I don't know what to say. Sounds like he didn't feel good, but didn't suffer either.

So sorry to hear about your dog. It's never easy to lose a pet. My prayers are with you and the kids as they grieve.

Sorry to hear about the dog!

Perhaps, cremation might be an option?

Mongoose said...

Wow. Sorry to hear that.

Awwww....Tudu...I am so sorry.
Now if this had happened at my house it would have surely been done at the hands of J. She has tried so sneakily so many times it's a miracle Puddin is still here. She's tried feeding stuff to kill her, choking her and sticking stuff up her rear. So glad you don't have to worry about that!
Hugs,

Sorry to hear about your dog, Tudu. Sounds like everyone is handling it alright though so that's good - and sounds like the pup didn't suffer.

I'm sorry. I lost my cat this year, and it's such a hard thing. I hope the kids are handling it all right.
