Bulldozer and Blossom
Hi Everyone, I have some really sad news to tell you guys, our Family is going to say goodbye to my Cuddle Buddy Bulldozer on Tuesday. I am beyond sad and heart broken, and have been crying for days. My Bulldozer, my Dozer, my Dozey, he's such a Lovebug, he looks at me with those big brown eyes, and I can't imagine not having him around. I don't know how I'm going to say goodbye, or if I can, but know that I have to be unselfish and let him go, so he doesn't suffer anymore. I just have him a bath, and a nice massage, he's lost so much weight, and I can feel his bones, he can hardly walk anymore, and we had to carry him out for a pee, and carry him to the tub. I think he liked his bath, he seemed to enjoy it, and now he's lying beside me, and probably wondering why Mommy is crying.
I joined this forum when I brought my two guys home, and Bulldozer and Blossom have been a big part of EBN, I shared a lot about them, but I also learned a lot of awesome information on here. Blossom is still healthy and strong, and I know she knows that her brother is sick, I know she is really going to miss him too, and she's going to be lost without him. I am gutted and can't stop crying, I know other members have gone through this with their beloved Furbabies, and it's really hard, I just hope I can be strong for him on Tuesday. I know that I will stay with him and comfort him, but it will be the hardest thing I'll ever have to do.

So sorry you are having to go through this and to of made such an incredibly hard decision but as terrible as it is you are doing it all through sheer love for Dozer.

I know it is no conciliation at this time to hear that you have done all you can but you have, and he has also had a fantastic loving life with you and your family but eventually those thoughts will help you heal.

I unfortunately do know this through experience of losing my best buddy Dudley recently.

I can tell you with certainty that it does get easier and you will smile when you think of Dozer just make sure Blossom gets even more love than before and you will help each other get through this terrible time.

Wesley sends cuddles for your whole family.

Shedding tears for you Monica! I am shocked and saddened by this news about Bulldozer!! The absolute most difficult thing to do and yet the most LOVING AND UNSELFISH thing to do for your boy.

I pray that somehow you are comforted with all of the tender, loving memories. I know this will be impossible but hopefully some day.

Keeping you in my prayers and we are all here for you!!!!!

Sue and Joey

[MENTION=6311]Vikinggirl[/MENTION] Dear Monica, I am so sorry to hear this. I know how much you love your babies, as all here know,too. Many of us have been where you are, and can feel your pain,though there is nothing to say or do to ease it. We CAN pray for you and Blossom . Though you won't know it now, but in time the pain will ease and you will be able to smile at the memories. We all know that you will comfort Blossom, as she will also comfort you. Love,Manydogs

So very sorry Monica... those babies are your heart! Sending lots of love and prayers to you all. Big hugs

Keep close watch on Blossum, she will miss her partner and they go into depression too.

Rest well sweet Dozer

My heart is in my throat. God I’m so so sorry to hear about Bulldozer. We all know you take such good care of your babies. It will be hard on Blossom but she’ll have you to comfort her. Nyala wouldn’t eat or move when Duke passed. She laid at the door where Duke last exited. Took a good week. Very hard to go through but you all will. Day by day.

Big hugs. :assurred::angelheart:

We have lost 3 bulldogs over the years. We really enjoy talking about all the funny things they did and how happy they were. Keep the happy memories going. They are super funny and entertaining dogs and the good memories can last forever.

This, the hardest thing you’ll ever do, shows just how much you loved Bulldozer, and how unselfish you are.
The healing will come slowly, but it will come.
RIP Bulldozer.
