All,

I am not sure if this is allowed here and if not mods please feel free to delete.

I have entered a photo of my Penny who passed on August 30th into a contest with the Humane Society. The winning photo will receive a $5,000 donation to a 501 registered rescue. We picked the Humane Society in the community that she came from. They do amazing things for so many animals and I would love so much to be able to do something like this to honor my girl.

If you can - please vote 5 stars and share with your friends. This photo was taken this year before she got sick and encompasses the soul of my beautiful silly girl.

Thank you in advance for any voting and sharing!

I got Miles in December 2003. Penny found me in August 2004. They were my first dogs as an adult. Penny has been gone since August 30th. I miss her terribly.

I am active in several dog rescue groups in our community so I get almost daily exposure to so many sweet faces who are either safe and in a rescue or still in kill facilities. Our vet has told me to "pay it forward" and save another life to honor my Penny girl and also to help Miles. Miles was less than a year old when she came and he seems so lost now that she's gone.

When is it "time?" Some days I feel like a new furry face around the house might help me heal. Other days I feel like I would be replacing Penny and that thought makes me really sad. I know we will never replace her but we do have a lot of love to give.

On 08/30 we had to put our Penny girl to sleep due to a brain tumor and seizures. She and Miles have been together for 8 years. They were very bonded.

He did okay over the weekend but did pace the house looking for her. Monday night he threw up. I took him to the vet first thing Tuesday morning and they felt he had anxiety induced colitis. He came home with me with strict instructions for no food or water. He had a hard time getting comfortable but otherwise was still affectionate.

I work for the government and had to travel two hours away today for a court hearing, so I took him to my mom's house today as husband normally works longer hours than I do. We had a re-check appointment for 5:15 this afternoon. By the time I got back, he was laying on the floor almost unresponsive. We got to the vet at 4. He had labs and an x-ray. His WBC count is incredibly high and his kidneys and liver are having a hard time. He was diagnosed with Pancreatitis and they are keeping him for a minimum of 2 days to treat. He will have an ultrasound in the morning.

I am devastated. Losing Penny has been horrible but the thought of also losing Miles is making me physically ill. Please keep us in your prayers.

We had to put our Penny girl to sleep last Thursday due to a brain tumor. Miles, our other dog, is grieving himself sick.

He seemed to do okay over the weekend but threw up last night. This morning when I went to let him out he began throwing up again and eventually passed very thick mucous stool. In a panic I called our vet and rushed him in. I was so scared to lose him too.

Labs and fecal checked out okay and she feels like he is having anxiety induced colitis. He will fast today to give his tummy time to rest and he was given a shot of antibiotics and anti-nausea meds. We've been loving on him a lot, going for long walks etc. Penny was his side kick for 8 years though and I know he is also hurting.

Does anyone have any advice to help him through? He was a puppy when we rescued Penny. Our vet said her best advice is to let him help us pick out another baby because some dogs just generally don't do well without another dog. My heart is aching at the thought of bringing another dog home right now.

I had my Penny girl put to sleep last Thursday. I am profoundly grieving for her. Much more than I ever thought I would be. Her health started declining at the beginning of August and it went so quickly. The first diagnosis was a Vestibular Event and then a few days later she had a seizure. She was then diagnosed with Canine Cognitive Disorder and a probable brain tumor. Due to her age, we opted not to do an MRI. We put her on Anipryl and saw some positive results. I woke up at 5:30 that day and found her in the middle of a horrible seizure. I don't know when it started but it continued for 30 minutes after I got in the floor with her. She was not able to get up after it like she had the others. I woke up my husband and told him it was time. We took her in about an hour later. Our vet made me step back when he was proceeding to give her the medicine (I think more for my sake) because I really thought I was going to try and grab her off the table. It happened so fast. Once he got it in I was able to hold her and within seconds she was gone. I stayed with her for a few minutes afterward and she looked so peaceful - better than I had seen her look in weeks.

I'm grateful that I had a few weeks to really love on her and tell her how much she meant to me. I feel like I will never be able to move past the guilt that I killed her sad.gif
