For the DoggiePing...
Here's one that ******* sheriff won't kill.
I'm surprised this is in breaking news...
I think there was a color picture on one of the threads earlier. It had numerous pictures but I cannot remember the name. Sorry.
Hey Jesse...is that a white or black dog? You puke!
So glad for the little guy
This has been a real hard day for my daughter, grandchildren and myself as we had to have a Vet come out and put our beloved Sasha, Rottweiller/Australian Shepard euthanized. She was 10 years old and all of a sudden she could not get up. We managed to get her in a sling and took her to the Vet on Thursday. He took lab tests and sent her home saying she would rest there better. The results on Friday showed all of her enzymes were elevated and the muscle enzyme which should be between 50-500 was at 25,000. She was in so much pain today and there was blood in her urine. Thankfully we were able to find a Vet to make a house call and euthanize her.
A trip to FR's Rainbow Bridge is order. . .
So sorry about Sasha. She sounds like she was a marvelous girl. Doggie prayers for her, and people prayers for you.
Must add I admire you for making such a valiant, humane, selfless decision. And kudos for finding a vet to come to the house. Many people hold back and allow their pets to suffer. Can't stand that. She was lucky to be owned by all of you. Take care.
Very sorry to hear about Sasha. Extended condolences from me and my border collie, Maggee.
And here is the one they are talking about in this article"
Dunno? Is it a different dog? The second one looks bigger.
Thanks! That's the picture I saw earlier. I agree with you, the second picture dog looks bigger. Noses are similar if that's any indication of size and it appears the second picture uses a wide angle lense that can distort size. All guesses on my part, we'll probably never know for sure.
You and your family have my deepest sympathies.
Bless her little heart.
You're right, we might never know.
Sorry to hear about your dog, Sasha, it's not easy but you did the right thing.
Time will ease the hurt but will never dim the memories of the years you had with Sasha.
thanks for posting, another spot of sunlight in the darkening sky covering new orleans now.
Good grief, that dog is cyooooooot.
And I am very sorry to hear that.
I seem to remember you posting in the past about your beloved Sasha.
Thank you all for your kind thoughts. I had to have my beloved Scruffy, Terrier Mix, who was 19 years old put to sleep a couple of years ago and it is never easy, even though you know it is the best thing to do.
Thanks so much for your thoughts. I am not sure if I posted about her or not. She was my daughters dog that she got as a puppy. Since my daughter worked and she would bring the grandkids here before school to be baby sat she would bring Sasha for me to baby sit also. I did this for 5 years, until I inherited my step-fathers two dogs and I was not sure how they would all get along, so I thought it best she didn't bring her anymore. Also the grandkids were then big enough they could just go home after school.
So sorry to hear about the loss of your husband, but happy that your dog survived for years longer. That is the thing that just goes through you mind over and over. Is there any possibility they could get over it. In Sasha's case, since her urine was thick dark brown and unless we put out over a $1000 dollars to have her IV flushed then there was no gaurentee. Also my daughter has to work and there was no one home to care for her.
That same thought struck me. I emailed the black and white picture and article to a friend and then included the color original picture so she could see the happy ending. But as I was sending it to her I suddenly thought this is not the same dog. I don't think it is.
My heart is breaking for you, Spunky.
We, too, lost our Rottie, Bismarck, suddenly a few years ago. He had no symptoms until the day he collapsed, but ultrasound showed that he had advanced splenic cancer and a blood vessel had ruptured. He died in my arms on the examining table and a piece of me died with him. He was 10 days shy of his eighth birthday.
We had two other dogs at the time who helped to ease the pain but they also have now gone to the Rainbow Bridge.
Two months ago, we adopted a Rottie from a Rottweiler rescue organization and once again we are experiencing the joy of a wonderful Rottie companion.
Prayers for you and your family in your grief.

I think it's the same dog.
I am so sorry. Yes, we were fortunate with Teddy. I just wish my husband had been as fortunate.
Today has been especially hard for my daughter. She is experiencing the emptiness. I advised her against getting another dog as it is to hard on them to be alone for that long of a time.
That isn't the "Oily Dog". The little puppy is a Shih Tzu, and the other one is a mutt (Half Shih Tzu/half Lhasa Apso). The facial coloring is totally different, The smaller dogs face is pushed in more And has a way smaller nose than the bigger dog. look how the lady is hoding him... it looks like he's pretty heavy! and the little one at the top he looks really little! The bigger dogs face is longer also. They don't match. I can just tell that isn't The crying puppy and that makes me sick! I feel so sorry for that little puppy! I want to go over there and search for it. He's so adoreable! I'd love to pick it up right now and hug it. I read somewhere that the little puppy is a boy, and he's 2 years old, and his name is Gizmo? I don't remember where I read that at, but he looks like a little gizmo! he's so cute! I hope someone has found him, and he's ok.
((He reminds me of my little puppy Snickers whos passed on. :*( If you go to my puppy "Skittles" homepage you can read about Snickers. I still cry when I think about her.))
