Hello my friends. Tonight I have a heavy heart. When it rains, it pours.
A few days ago my dog started acting… not herself. She was in pain. Then today I noticed another symptom – she had bloody urine. I could see it in the snow. So I took her to the Veterinarian.
After a number of tests it seems that my poor dog has many many stones in her bladder. Her bladder is infected and the lining shredded from the stones. She is going to die. 😦
I can hardly believe it even as I sit here typing it. She is just a few feet from me right now, and I can hear her breathing. Every now and then, she licks her lips or lifts her head, or sighs heavily. She has been there for me for the last nine years through thick and thin. All the times I was sick, she laid next to me. Was happy to take walks with me whenever I wanted. We loved to grill in the backyard together. I call her “my little shadow”, because she always follows me wherever I go. Man, I’m going to miss her.
I know God won’t give a person more than they can handle. And I know I can handle this. It’s just a pain in my heart and another hole in my life.
I bought some pain pills from the Vet and if she makes it through the weekend, then I’ll take her in and have her put to sleep on Monday. I just couldn’t do it today. It was so sudden.
I truly know in my heart that all dogs go to heaven. And when I get there, I’ll be with her again.
