Our beloved 8 year old bullie , “Cozmeaux”, crossed the rainbow bridge last night. He started exhibiting signs that he was not well a couple weeks ago, and a visit this past week to his primary vet revealed that he was retaining fluid in his chest and abdomen. This was a surprise and I feel soooo bad for not recognizing signs that he wasn’t feeling well.

His primary vet said that an ultrasound would provide answers to the fluid retention, but in the area we live, the ultrasound vets/ technicians were not readily available. We went home with Lasix, antibiotics and prednisone. None of the meds seemed to help his condition- short, labored breathing, lack of appetite…. His breathing worsened to the point where we decided to take him to a 24 emergency clinic last night.

A gamut of tests were run, and it became apparent to us that he was not going to get better , even with the possibility of having full-blown ultrasound,…..his heart was barely pumping any blood, and we made the heartbreaking decision to euthanize him.

Although we will grieve for quite some time, we are comforted , as many of the wonderful people on this forum can attest, that we indeed made the correct decision.

Thanks to all of who who have posted information on raising these wonderful animals, as we have learned , and will continue to learn soooooo much from you.

We are also comforted in the fact that our 4 year old bullie, “Elvis“, will help us through the grieving process.

The veterinary staff that tended to Cozmeaux were absolutely wonderful, compassionate people…..those working in emergency veterinary care are some of the finest people out there…..definitely not an easy job and those folks to be commended.

@Squeezer So sorry for your loss of Cozmeaux. Many of us have had losses and we do know the awful feeling. To us, they are little people and best friends. People who have not had Bullies don't know how special they are. He is at the Rainbow bridge and running free with no pain, and new friends. Btw, I love the spelling of his name

Thanks much! They are such as special breed of dog for sure! We are originally from Lafayette, LA , so the Cajun spelling appealed to us ( I was a huge Seinfeld fan and liked the Cosmo Kramer character).

Thank you very much! I‘ve never understood the “signs “ that pets send from the afterlife, but have had at least 5 since this past Saturday….strange but definitely not coincidenta.
