    Default I still miss my Rocky

    One year ago tonight I was up all night with my Rocky. Rocky was suppose to be my first bully..but turned out to be part bulldog/boxer.It really didn't matter I still loved him. On Oct 25 it was rainy and cold outside. Rocky started to act strange by pacing around the house non stop.After a hour of doing this I decided to put him to bed to see if that would calm him down. I put him in his crate and I laid down in bed. I heard him hit the side of his crate and he started to shake. I yelled at Leon to help him. I knew Rocky was having a seizure or stroke. Leon put his finger in the crate to try and calm him down. Rocky attacked and bite Leon's finger. I was so scared. called my vet and had talked to the vet that was on call..this happen around 8pm. He told me to keep a eye on him and that he would call me back in a hour. Well Rocky kept on having them one after another. And before one would start Rocky would look at me like he was saying " please help me mom...here comes another one". It broke my heart.I called every vet in town and NOT one vet would come to my house. I even told them that money was no problem. The problem was that they didnt make house calls. We live outside of town in the country. They would meet us in town at their office..but we couldnt get Rocky there. We couldnt risk the chance of letting him out of his crate and biting us. We knew he was very sick and was not in his right mind.Keep in mind that by now he is having them one right after another. There was nothing I could do but watch him. It broke my heart to watch my poor baby suffer. We thought about taking crate and all to the vets. But the crate was too big . Were we to break down the door way? Leon couldnt handle watching Rocky so he went to bed and left me there with Rocky. I got mad at him cause it was hard for me too. But later on I realize that it was so harder for him to watch. That was one of the longest nights ever. I will never forget the look on Rocky's face. He started to drool so I had to put rugs around his crate. I kept time of his seizures and he was having them every 15 mins.This went on all night. Finally at 8am I called my vet again..he had a mobile unit..but said he still couldnt make a house call cause they were busy. I couldnt take it any longer, neither could Leon. I thought for a min that Leon was gonna have to shoot Rocky.Leon's brother came over and they tore off the door frame. We wraped up Rocky's crate to put in the back of the truck. It was very cold and still rainy outside. I wanted to ride in the back with him but Leon wouldnt let me. When we got in town to the vets Rocky had all ready died. My poor baby had to die all alone.I was so mad at everyone. I blamed everyone for not helping Rocky. He didnt have to suffer like that. The vet said that he thought it was a brain tumor. We took my baby home to bury him in the back yard. I had never seen Leon cry or so upset before. It broke my heart to see him that way. It was hard for him to dig the hole. After that we cried all day and talked about all the fun times we had with Rocky. I still cry to this day. I miss him so much. After a week or so later I wanted to write a article in the news paper on how NO one would help my poor Rocky. But Leon was afraid that when we got another dog no vet would want us. So I kept my mouth shut. So tomorrow will be year since I loss my Rocky. There isnt a day that goes by that I don't think about him. I love and miss my Rocky.-549943_628155497198116_705806201_n-jpg

    Reading this just made me cry!! I can't even imagine the pain of having to watch your baby suffer so horribly and have the double pain of NO ONE coming to his aid, however that is the same boat we would be in if something happened to Sheldon like that. I am so sorry for the loss of your precious Rocky! These guys capture of a piece of our heart and when they go over the Rainbow Bridge they take that piece with them. for you and your family! Hugs and love and Sheldon sends wet sloppy muzzies!

    R.I.P. Duece Man 9-13-14 Gone but not forgotten, always in our hearts! Till we meet again over the Bridge, Mommy misses you.

    I'm so very sorry for your loss... And for the way you were treated by the area vets. I have lost many pets over the years, and this year alone two bullies. It never gets easier, but Rocky knew love & that's what really counts! Sending prayers & hugs to you...

    i cried as I read your story. I have been through this-lost my husb. and same night my 1 yr. old German Shep died having seizures. I know how hard it is for you. Those are wounds that never heal, but we have to get "through it" not "over it". I am still here, which amazes me. Prayers for you...

    I'm so sorry for the loss of your boy Rocky. You did the best you could do for him. You were with him and he knew how much you loved him. I know these are just words and that you're still hurting and missing him so much. He's at peace and in Heaven and one one day you will see him again.
