Tommy xs

Thought I'd said goodbye to my Dog yesterday

Recommended Posts

My wife called me yesterday & said that Chunk our pet chocolate lab had all the symptoms of canine bloat she'd got him to the vets but it wasn't looking good she was sitting outside the surgery in tears

waiting for the results of the xray bye the time i got there the Vet was coming out to speak to her, turned out it wasn't what she feared but wasn't much better, when they showed us the xray and pointed out what I assumed was his stomach was in fact a tumor about the size of a rugby ball they couldn't tell what organ it was until they operated best case scenario would be it was his spleen anything else they said it would be kinder not to wake him from the opp. We went in and spent about 20 mins with him waiting for him to go into the opp all the time thinking we might never see him again. We were told to go home wait for the call about an hour and a half they said, nearly 4 hours later phone rang, good new hes come through, it was his spleen the tumor weighed nearly 7 lb they said it all went well, still got to wait for test on tumor sample just hoping its Benign anyway we got to bring him home tonight amazing how resilient dogs can be, he was looking for food as soon as he got home hes settled down now, just sat here all night watching him

sorry to bore you all with this but hes like one my kids, he means the world to me,sitting looking his empty bed last night was made worse as it was his 8th birthday yesterday.

just hope the pet insurance pays out or I'll have to find £900

As above mate, here's hoping for a full recovery. Like kev, I had to get mine, a rottie, put to sleep last year, and it took a while to accept it.

We also had to let ours go. She had a rough go with seizures... and wasn't quite herself by the end. Still breaks my heart. Glad your baby's doing better Tommy and you didn't have to let him go just yet!

Sorry to hear about the dog Tommy and glad to hear hes getting better,I've had dog's all my life and it hurts when they go.I always say that's it no more dogs.Never made it more than a couple of months befor the next one came home with me.After my last shepered went I realy thought thats it!! he was so close to me and so smart I thought no way will I ever find a dog as good as he was.

Then 1 day after work I come home and the shop just down the road is asking everyone " did you loose your dog" well they didn't want it to go to the pound and I said I 'll keep her untill some one come's looking for her. she was.... well a mess... under fed, afraid of /hated women,news paper rolls,fly swaters. and she couldn't keep her hair.

Long story short 7 years later Harriet is still here ( a pun she shed so much in the first few weeks it seemed the right name),never cost me any vet bills,save for shots ,and a great dog would die to save me or my son from harm.She just a mixed mutt but she's my mutt and part of the family and is fine around women,just wish i knew how old she is.

Wishing a speed recovery to your loved one

nice pic Kev like the name. really suite's him

its comforting to know i'm not the only one who feels so much for their dog, my initial though when I thought I would loose him was the same as yours DT50, but I also know he will one day (fingers crossed long way in the future) leave a masive hole in my life and I guess I'll have to fill it with something.

Yer dogs are amazing, gut wrenchingly so.

I had a Colly cross Blue merl called Trip who was a rescue dog. Called him trip as he would either knock you over when he was off the lead or sleep by the front door so you'd trip over him when you came home.

When i was on leave one weekend from the Forces i came home expecting to trip over the bugger and he wasn't there. Found out he went down with dimenchia (if thats how you spell it) and he had to be put down as he even forgot where his food was and was wondering round lost and confused all the time. Such a great dog with his own little traites. actually found him asleep in my bed one day, under mu covers and head on the pillow snoring his head off so i had to kip on his bed for the night ha ha.

Well since he had the opp he's been in and out the vets three times and only spent 2 nights at home, but he's still hanging in there

and hopefully we'll be able to bring him home tomorrow all going well, still a long way to go yet!! fingers crossed
