Skip to comments.My Fur Baby Went Home to God today (VANITY)
Posted on 07/02/2010 2:37:18 PM PDT by MarineMom613
My fur baby died today. She was 10 1/2 years old. Vet thinks it was her liver. She was hemoraging when I got a call to come home from work. She was laying right where she would be on a regular nite to greet me. Only today, she was waiting for me to come home and say goodbye. 15 minutes later she was gone. Ambulance came 5 minutes later. Sandy is now with my Mom & Dad, She is also with her mother whom we put down a month ago. Please pray for her and for me to get through this. She was all I had left after I lost my Mom 2 years ago. She was my baby.... I feel so lost.
I have two Boston Terriers who've kept me company during the last couple of hard years. They are family and I can't imagine the house without them.
That’s how I feel. Empty. She went so fast and unexpected. She was my life.
Sorry to hear about that.
God will provide you with another companion. Which is how your departed friend would want it!
We had our Sandy put to sleep 2 years ago..she was my wife’s baby..we were both there I did not want to be there but for my wife I needed to be there....14 years...sometimes I think of her and say I am sorry. Still can’t talk to my wife about it...Prayers going up for all of you...through the tears...
Sorry about your loss.
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
I’m so sorry. May God be with you, blessing you with comfort and only the happy memories.
Whenever I have my sad moments about my pets, I praise God that He allowed them to be part of my life. I’m looking forward to when I am able to take care of another pet who needs a home.
I am so sorry about your loss.. We had to put down our 12 year old pug a couple years ago..I have still not recovered.
I hold the hope of seeing him again ..
I hold the same hope for you
our vet sent us this when we lost casey.. I cry everytime I see it
And, I bet, you were her life too. Better, for her, to go before you did. And better, for her, to go quickly.
You have my sincere sympathy. I can't really imagine hanging out without the dog buddies.
I’m so very sorry for your loss - may God bless you and give you peace...
Oh gosh I am so sorry. I had a similar scare this week with my golden retriever - same age as Sandy. Vet thought he might have a tumor on his liver. It ended up being nothing, but I was hysterical for two days before I got the clean bill of health. I am so sorry and I know God is with you. Don’t let anyone tell you “it’s just a pet” - it hurts the same as losing a family member.
Sorry for your loss...
Prayers for you and Sandy. I believe we will be reunited with our loving pets.
Bless your heart. I know how it is.
We had 2 of our 16 year old kitties die this year. Our hearts were broken. Took us a while to talk about them. We worked it out.
We have a little one we brought in that has healed the wounds. She makes us laugh.
God does not waste. He cares for, and conserves everything.
Why would he allow these small souls to perish?
They will be waiting for you. All of them — all the little ones you’ve known over all the years of your life.
They will be waiting for you.
I’m sorry to learn of this sad happening in your life. I know that there are those that might not quite understand the bond that exists between someone and their pet/pets, but it’s as true a connection as many others that we may experience in our lives. I hope that you will find solace in your memories of your sweet baby and as a fellow mom to several fur babies(feline), I want you to know that I empathize with what you are going through. Thinking of you with real sympathy,
Very sorry... I felt that way too when our Suzy (shepherd mix) died suddenly and unexpectedly a few years ago. Our furry friends sure do find a way to work their way into our hearts, don’t they?
I’m so sorry. Prayers up for you.
Dogs are one of God’s greatest blessings...
God bless you my dear
lost one of my babies over Memorial Day - still weeping. in fact i just lit a memorial candle to commemorate her life. that helps. i like to keep remembering. i know that ultimately only time helps.
I’m so sorry. Our pets are part of our family. It hurts so much when they leave us but always remember the love they brought into our lives.
amen to that
Condolences to you, MM613. That big ol’ hole in your heart will fill eventually with all the good memories you shared with your furbaby. In the meantime, grief is the price we pay for love. You loved and there is nothing to regret about that.
I am so sorry to read of your loss. It is like part of your heart & soul are ripped out. Many of us know all too well. 5+ years for me since Oliver left me & a day doesn’t go by that I do NOT think of him & miss him dearly.. many tears still
There are no magic answers for healing that I know of. You must go through the pain. And yes, God does provide new companions but that will never diminish the love you shared with each other.
Thanks for letting us share your life & pain right now.. and do know you have support here when you want it!
I forgot to say, you’ll know when you are ready to find a companion (not a replacement, a comforter). Please do not deprive yourself or the four-legged friend who will need you as much as you will need him or her.
(((MarineMom613)))) <<those are HUGS!
I’ve walked in your shoes. It is truly a sad day.
Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. I am sitting here in shock. She got sick so fast. I called an ambulance and they got here alittle after she passed. She waited for me to come home to her. If I knew she was so sick, i would never have left her today. Knowing she suffered is killing me. When I got to the vet hospital where the ambulance brought her, I told her to go straight to Mom & Pop, that I would see her on the other side, but for now stay with my Mom. I pray she is sitting with my Mom right now, totally at peace. God, It hurts.
I am sorry you lost your friend. I lost my beautiful Mastiff in March. My heart was so broken. Then my sister went to the Humane Society and got me (2) eight month old puppies and I will tell you that I instantly almost forgot about my beautiful dog. The puppies need so much attention that it is hard to remember anything before them.
Your post brought tears to my eyes. I’ve been there. It’s heartbreaking. I’m so glad that you got home in time to say goodbye.
God bless and be with you until you’re able to bear it on your own. You’re in my prayers.
Do turtles, frogs or gophers have souls?
Had to put down my 17-1/2 year old beagle-dach Sadie today. She’s been half-blind and half-deaf for awhile now, plus had a heart murmur, and was having a harder and harder time walking. Last night I picked her up to take her up the stairs, and when I put her down her left back leg wasn’t working. Stroke, I guess. I petted her throughout the night and took her to the vets this morning. It was that or let her slowly die of dehydration over the next couple of days. I had her since she was 7 weeks old. I am going to miss her.
When my Mom passed, she had Pancreatic Cancer. We had about 2 months to get thru, but we knew she was going to die. Sandy was fine yesterday, and today she is gone. I know God works in his own way but right about now I’d like an explanation. I feel it deep in my stomach. I just can’t get my mind around it. If she was here right now and I was crying (like I am) she would be right up on her front paws, making me distracted for some love. I have 2 cats (hah!!)They just want their food and leave them alone. I don’t know what I will do. My b/f is not a dog person. He already told me, no more dogs. We don’t live together so he don’t get no say in that. Just, right now I feel it would be disloyal to Sandy to get another pup. Stupid, no I don’t think so.
My heart goes out to you. Have been there several times and will be there again someday.
It never gets easier.
That is a very sad string of events in your life and you have my deepest sympathy. I greatly hope that your companion was not your only remaining support because that can get to be too much sadness. I am praying for you and hope that you will be able to cope with this loss. God Bless!
Wishing you warm hugs and blessings from MarineBrat and my own two faithful dogs. God be with you!
I’m very sorry. Our fur babies make our lives so much richer, even after they’ve left us. I’m glad you were able to say goodbye.
Oh, honey, I know how you feel. As my tagline indicates, I lost my big ginger kitty of nearly 13 years back in March and I still cry. Diagnosis of lung cancer on a Tuesday and he was gone by Friday.
You will be in my prayers.
