View Full Version : Update: She's gone...Need jingles..Old Farm Dog heading to Emergency Vet

Dec. 23, 2008, 08:29 AM
Thank you for all the jingles. I'm crying as I type this. Unfortunately we had to make the decision to euth her. She had ruptured several discs in her back. We don't know what happened, other than she may have fallen off of her couch early this morning.

RIP Keisha. You were my shadow, my protector, my best friend. I hope you're pouncing cats and chasing bunnies up there. I love you.


I need some major COTH jingles here. got woken up by my 9 yr old Rottie farm dog/best friend/protector. She was on the floor and couldn't get up. We think she broke her hip. On our way to the emergency vet, will update when I get back.

Jingles from Florida. Hope it is nothing serious.

Good luck. We had the same last week, only I thought the dog was shot or kicked. It turned out to be Lymes. Hope it's something simple.

Oh, I am so sorry. Deepest condolences.

Think of her running and playing; she's got tennis balls and rabbits for miles and miles.

I am so sorry honey. It is so hard to lose a beloved pet - but even more so around the holidays. You did the right thing though.

I am so sorry for your loss. I recently had to make that same, difficult decision. I hope in time the good memories will heal your broken heart. ((Hugs)) to you.

So sorry she is gone.
We lost our rottie when she started having long, hard seizures, got her to the vet and she kept having them there and passed on.

My condolences, it is a shock and such a loss.:(

I'm so, so sorry. :(

I read this this morning before heading off to work but wasn't logged in to post... was thinking of you all day though.

I lost a Good Dog in October. While he was 'only' five, it's hit me far harder than expected. Good Dogs touch our souls.

Vale Keisha. :cry:

Godspeed, good old girl. The dogs we share our lives with around the barn are so special. I know she will be missed.

Dec. 23, 2008, 11:56 PM
I'm so sorry for your loss. :( I've been thinking of you today and hoping that there would be positive news this evening. Bless you for doing the right thing for your sweet girl.

Dec. 24, 2008, 12:05 AM
Just remember how lucky you were to have her....Great dogs that change our lives are blessings. 9 years of a great friend....lucky her, lucky you!

Dec. 24, 2008, 06:04 AM
So sorry to hear this. Along w/ my GSD fettish, I also had a Rottie growing up. She was a super dog. Her name was Hildagard (Hilda.) I did NOT name her.

Awww, I'm so sorry. :(

I'm so sorry.

Unfortunately, I know just where you are today.

And to boot I have someone on another forum giving me s**t about mourning the loss of our pet today.

I'm so sorry you lost your best friend and shadow, MMM. It's never easy is it? These 4-legged angels leave such a hole in our hearts and lives when they're gone. You'll see her again someday...

Thanks again everyone. I got a condolence card from my vet yesterday and it started the waterworks all over again. :sigh: It gets easier right?

Tiempo, I am so sorry for your loss. :(

I lost my 13 yr old 1/2 Rott 1/2 Malamute who was 140+ pounds and had arthritis. He was sleeping behind my dh's truck when he backed up over him, he was to big and old to get out of his way. I rushed him to the vet, his back leg was clearly broken. Vet said he could fix it but at his age and with his arthritis, so I stood there and said goodbye so unexpectedly. I had that dog his whole life, he kept me sane in my 20's and grounded. I cried for days, and believe me I know EXACTLY how you feel. To make it better 3 days later I went and bought a Great Pry. It does get easier with time, I promise.
