Debbie lost her battle with cancer today

Hi Girls,

I don't post over here a ton, but felt like I should let you all know that we had to put Debbie Girl down at 10:30 today.  She hadn't been wanting to eat.  Last night, we made some home cooked dog food thinking that would get her to eat.  It did!  We were so hopeful that'd she be with us just a little longer.  But, after she ate her breakfast this morning, it was clear that cancer had begun to effect her lungs.  Her respiration rate was very high and she was really having to struggle to take breaths.  We've know this day was coming for a long time.  But, my heart is broken today.  I don't think there's been a time in my life when I have been more sad.  She was the best.  

So far Cindy seems okay.  She probably just thinks she'll be back later.  Thank you for your support over the last months and for helping me think through every step of the journey to hell that is cancer.  I appreciate it more than you know.  

-Katie

  • I'm so sorry. Even though you knew the day was coming doesn't make the pain any less. The pain and sadness does lessen, but the hole remains forever. Cindy will probably look around for her, just let her find her way. Maybe a few extra walks and some extra snuggles. ((hugs))

  • So sorry for your loss...we lost our dog a month ago...it was unexpected

    My friend sent me this and it made me feel a little better...so I thought I'd share:


    If tears could build a stairway
    And memories were a lane
    We would walk right up to heaven
    ... And bring you back again

    No farewell words were spoken
    No time to say goodbye
    You were gone before we knew it
    And only God knows why

    Our hearts still ache in sadness
    And secret tears still flow
    What it meant to lose you
    No one can ever know

    But now we know you want us
    To mourn for you no more
    To remember all the happy times
    Life still has much in store

    Since you'll never be forgotten
    We pledge to you today
    A hallowed place within our hearts
    Is where you'll always stay

     

    Take care.

  • I am so sorry, Katie :*(
    Move along, nothing to see here.....
  • Thank you ladies.  Right now, I'm pretty stuck in the anger side of grief.  The last year has been very difficult and I feel like I got one final kick from the universe yesterday.  It just isn't fair.  And, while we knew she was ill, we didn't expect her lungs to be the issue and certainly not so suddenly. 

    I appreciate your words.  They are a comfort during this difficult time.

  • Oh Katie...my heart breaks for you.  I haven't been on here in forever and it's so odd I find myself here today to read about such sad news. I had no idea Debbie had been fighting this battle and I am so sorry about that!  I think back years to when your girls, and my Tye, seemed to be just pups! 

    Although I know it is extremely difficult, take comfort in the fact that you gave your girl a wonderful life including one of the greatest gifts of all...knowing when to let her rest. She is at peace, no suffering and she will keep a place in your heart forever. I also know that there's a handsome blue boy at the bridge who welcomed her with open paws.

     Rest well, sweet Debbie.Broken Heart

  • I'm so sorry. RIP Debbie.
