Rest in Peace my Squiggs.....

March 31st, 2008, 03:14 PM
Having been too distraught to post my sad news, I will do it today. A week ago today I lost my baby Minpin Squiggy. Having survived an episode of Hemorraghic Gastroenteritis the end of February, he recovered and lived a few more weeks with more vigor than I expected. I thought he was a new dog.

Last Sunday night, he started to vomit. Then explosive diarrhea. I called my vet, and then took him in at three in the morning for an emergency call. He went downhill so fast that by the time he arrived there he was hypoglycemic and not responsive. It took awhile for her to get an IV in... he was so dehydrated already as a four pound dog. She was surprised at how fast he was going downhill. She stayed with him the rest of the night as he was very critical. He had more bloody diarrhea and just lay there all night.

In the later morning, she referred to an internal specialist at the emergency clinic in the city, and it was suggested to me to transfer him there. I picked him up, and knew he was not right. He died just before we arrived at the emergency clinic. They tried CPR and atropine, but he was gone. Just like that. I was devastated, and still am. This one was so difficult because he was so young and so tightly bonded with me. I am sad that he will never see a warm day, and play on the grass in the sun. Rest in peace my baby boy, I love you. :candle:
