I didn’t mean to make you sad. The Golden puppy had a happy life. She was depressed for a day, or so, and then she became just a happy puppy. But, she wouldn’t play with the rubber toy. What’s more, she seemed to sense that he wasn’t coming back when my husband and Wolfie left for the vet. She chased them to the door and watched out the window as they left and kicked up a fuss — unusual.
What was so strange is tht she was used to Wolfie going places without her because he would go to the groomer and the vet all the time, and she would stay home. But she knew something was up the morning he went to the vet the last time. Probably because I was crying. But also because he was suffering from seizures and was on anti-seizure meds.
Unfortunately, he got worse after every seizure (despite all of our efforts to keep his system in balance) until he just wasn’t right any more. I have no doubt that the Golden could smell the imbalance in his system. At the end he tried to bite us and would stand right in front of you in the house and pee on your shoe.
It was a happy sad. I just love my dogs so much- I lost my baby beagle in June and I miss him every single day.
I will never understand why mean people and bad people outlive animals.
I think dogs must have a 6th sense about death. Maybe it’s a particular odor they can detect. I hate reading those stories about dogs that go to the cemetery of their masters etc. We treat our dogs and cat like people so any thought of them being upset makes me sad!
