    To say I'm devastated is an understatement.

    When I adopted her in May 2013, I honestly thought I'd get 5 years with her. It is some comfort to know she's had a better life in the last year and a half than she had in the 4 years with her previous owners.

    Thanks for all the support.
    Oh no! I am so sorry! She is lucky that you noticed there was something wrong and took action--and that she has had a wonderful life with you! Give her a hug--and an extra cookie for me.

    When I first read your original post-heart trouble came to my mind, when you mentioned swollen belly. I didn't post because I didn't want to scare you. I had a toy poodle who presented with congestive heart failure.She did not have a tumor,though. I would have to take her to the vet, for an injection,when she would build up fluid-which also caused a cough. as lasix was not enough. Finally, I brought the medication home, and just gave her the shot myself-as needed. She lived three more years-which actually surprised the veterinarian.
    I am so sorry about your baby. There is never enough time-no matter how much time you have. Keep her as happy and comfortable as you can, and just love her-like she knows you do! You have given her a better life and that is what she will remember.

    So very sorry hearing this sad news, yes, it is devastating & shocking

    Please be extra gentle with yourself & family, it takes time to absorb and
    come to grips with bad news that is so unkind, unfair and not deserved.

    There aren't any guarantees in life and Gypsy has been so loved and well
    cared for in your home, it's a blessing given to you both and there was
    Divine Purpose that you met. Treasure her all the more while you have her.
    Gypsy is happy, loved and lucky for your forever home after being used all
    her previous life then tossed aside like so many are BUT not to die then,
    unloved, neglected, afraid and alone, she's had YOU.

    Thank you for giving her everything and more that Gypsy deserved. Thank
    GOD she will not suffer and goes to Heaven where she will be happy & loved
    well there too but will wait for you in your time, her true love on Earth.

    I pray for you to be comforted by GOD's love, peace, joy & compassion for you
    and that healing comes soon to your heart. Please keep it open to love, always
    and in due time, adopt another furry one that NEEDS you and your home and all
    that you have to give. May GOD be with you & for you, today & every day, Amen!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    My heart is breaking for you and your family. I'm hoping the doctor can find a good course of action to help you through this. We are all here and praying for you.
