Sammie(my shadow)

Sunday, May 04, 2014

This morning, at 2:30 AM, my little Pom woke us up screaming.......
I grabbed a towel, wrapped her up and cuddled her, talking to her,
trying to calm her, and David grabbed my phone to call the Vet on his
emergency number, and bless that man forever, he called back within
a minute.....he could hear her screaming and said meet me at the office.

So here we went, he got there about 3 minutes after us....he asked if
we wanted to put her on IV and sedate, and I let him look at her, and
he thought as we did, that she had a stroke. I said no, I didn't want her
suffering, because she had had a seizure, right before we left the house
that was bad.....she passed over the Rainbow Bridge in my arms with
David's hand on her head.

I am thankful God let me keep her as long as He did, 15 years of being
my little shadow....every step I took she was right behind me. The past
few days, I had to carry her out to go potty because her hip hurt her, and
I am thankful that last night, when I fixed supper for us, she knew the smell
of spaghetti and she loved it, so I cooked her a half hamburger, and a pot of
spaghetti for her and SammyK. She had her favorite meal, and then cuddling
before bed.

I don't think I will ever get the sound of her screaming out of my head.....
She knew she was so loved, and I am so sorry it ended like this, but to watch
her suffer, just to be selfish and try to keep her with me, was not the right
thing to do.

Sammie, we will miss you but I know Junior met you at the Rainbow Bridge, and
you are together again.

    My two Poms are 15 Years old and Lexy is your babies twin. They only weigh 4-5 lbs with Zacky being the smallest and slighty older than Lexy. Zacky is glued to me at all times with the exception of daddy eating. It has been on my mind a lot lately about losing them. Lexy has no teeth but Zacky has 3 left. I know what you must be going through and I can sense your pain. It kills me to think that I will soon have that same pain. I have to think that God will let our babies come to heaven when we get there, I pray so. God bless you. Some dogs never experience love like we give them, it breaks my heart for them. I am sorry for your loss. They truly are members of our family. emoticon

    I saw your comment back on my dear friend Simple4life's page and had to come to your page and give you a BIG hug!

    I know the loss of one of our fur babies is soooo horrible and sad. We lost our ChinChin kitty and her big brown baby boy Keanu a few years later (on my pic page) they both lived long and spoiled lives and I loved them SO very much.

    I'm sending you big hugs and I know your little Sammie and you will meet up again further down the river. I do believe that we reunite with our animals again in the same way we reunite with our loved ones.

    Hugs to you...it's so HARD to give so much love to a furbabie and know that someday you will lose them...as they can't possibly live as long as us...BUT not having the opportunity to experience that pure love I think would be even harder.

    I always say our fur~babies are our angels...just hanging out with us wearing their little fur suits. Who else but an angel gives such unconditional love?

    God bless your vet...what an AWESOME human being! emoticon

    I'm sorry you lost her, I cried as I read this. That Vet is a wonderful person!

    How are you doing after losing her? I know she loved you and knew she was loved. And I know she is grateful to you for helping her at the end.

    Oh My! I am so sorry, and I know exactly how you feel since my 18 year old cat, CRICKET, just crossed over the Rainbow Bridge this past Thursday. Your little SAMMIE was beautiful, and I know you and she shared a very deep love for each other. CRICKET passed peacefully in his sleep, and for that I am thankful, but you did the right thing for SAMMIE. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

    I'm so sorry for your loss, it's very hard to see a pet hurting. Here's hoping that things are better for her on the other side.
