    Default Written with a heavy heart

    Took Annie to the vets today to discuss her allergies as they are out of control,she has scabs on her leg,stomached,pits and face,very sad to say but the vet says there is nothing he can do and advised me to put her to sleep,he read through her list of allergies there are 37 altogether,even down to diesel exhaust fumes,he said allergy shots would not be good as her allergies are so many and the shots would not cure her,and even if they did the possibility of different allergies cropping up are very likely,steroids will only alleviate the scratching and she would have to have them all her life,she is now developing hard lumps on her body due to allergies,he said she is a very sick dog,so after thinking long and hard I am having her put to sleep tommoroww morning ,bringing her home and burying her in the garden that she could not play in,tonight she is having steak,then I'm letting her play as long as she wants on the grass!!!my sons are devastated but realise that Annie cannot live a good life as a dog should,I've buckets already at the thought of losing my friend is so hard but for her this I must do,I thank you for all your support and help whilst I have been on this forum ,and I will check in from time to time for a chat,Karen and Annie xx

    Karen, this is so sad, I know how much you love Annie and how you have tried everything there is to try to help her live a better life. I am sorry a solution was not found, and I know you have thought long and hard about this, and if you decided to do this is because it is the right decision. It is going to be painful to see her go...

    Eagerly and Nervously awaiting the homecoming of Bruno Cannoli

    Oh no! what a terrible position you are in. my whole heart goes out to you right now. Is she in pain and miserable? How old is Annie? Dublin has very bad allergies and has been on and off steroids, and i have her on Benydryl for now. Her Dr. can't find any other meds that dont' make her very sick so I am doing what i can. She has bad breathing problems so have to be very watchful of her. So far none of the awful skin stuff that poor Annie is experiencing. I can't even imagine what the next 24 hours are going to be like for you and your family. you are a lot stronger than I could ever be. I wish you only the best and I am so sorry you are going through this.

    She's only 2 and has been battling this for the last 14 months,but enough is enough,she's in pain and unhappy now ,it's my duty to let her go even though it's like losing a child and believe me I know how that feels,karen

    Saying that I'm sorry you are going through this I'm sure means nothing right now. We do the best we can, for as long as we can. You have done that and so much more. You, Annie and your entire family will stay in my prayers today.

    For me, her name was Abby

    So sorry to hear this news. I'm sorry I don't remember all the details but have you tried a different food or even a different vet? I don't mean to sound like I'm judging you because I'm not, just offering other ideas before tomorrow. I wish there was something I could do to help, as I know this is not an easy decision to make. Please give her a hug from us and we will keep her in our prayers.
    Have a Great Bully Day.

    Oh my gawd Karen. I wish I could fix this for you. This forum is such a great support but this is the hard part of it. The sorrow and pain that comes with loving so many members and their babies. Hugs to you and sweet Annie.
