we lost our lovely allie suddenly this morning
Carol · Jun. 12, 2016
she vomited once at about 3 am...i stroked her sweet face, kissed her head and told her i was sorry her tummy was upset. and then i stepped over her and went back to bed.
she was unconscious when i got up at 7 am. i called emerg and erin to come help me get her into the van. by the time i got the stretcher, she was gone.
i was so afraid i missed something, an obstruction from eating another can..a torsion if her stomach had flipped. i asked the ER doc to xray so i would know.
there was nothing, no foreign objects, no twists, no tumors, no masses...nothing..everything was normal.
the vet said i didn't miss anything, occasionally dogs vomit just before a heart attack. there was no way i could have known. but i did know she wasn't feeling well at 3 am, i just didn't think it was a big deal.
don't know if we could have saved her...so very, very sorry allie...you didn't get that chance.
Allie deserved better than life gave her! She had the potential to be a great, happy, gentle and loving girl with her own family. I would always listen for your barking messages letting us know you needed to go outside or needed some attention and encouragement. Dearest Allie....RIP. Know that your spirit was strong and loving enough for your presence to live on and to be always felt forever at SAINTS, 🐾💕😔😊
