My beautiful 10-1/2 yr old rottie girl died in my arms this past sunday at 4:45pm…. i rushed her to the vet but of course she had already passed….
I can not even begin to explain the amount of pain I’m in, she was my best friend, my protector and my hero. She saved me from death from a bad man holding a gun, and who was going to kill me, my hero!!!!!!!
Kira was her name…… and full of life until about a wk ago, she started getting very sick,we ran blood tests, full body x-rays and nothing, but she did have very bad diarrhea, she was on meds. she was acting like she was getting better and then -a stroke and she died in my arms….
The pain and loss i feel are almost unbearable…. please someone tell him how to deal with the loss of my baby girl
Oh Haynes, I’m so sorry for your loss. Anyone who has ever loved a dog this way will totally understand and know what you’re going through!
I know how much it hurts, I’ve lost much-loved dogs over the years, some way before their time, and the pain can be heart-breakingly overwhelming. BUT, it does pass given time. I can’t tell you that it won’t completely go away, I still get a lump in my throat over mine at times, but you WILL be able to look back and remember Kira with love and a smile, even though you wish she was still with you.
It sounds as though she was a truly special girl, and that you’ve been through a lot together, and I’m absolutely certain that she knew how much you loved her and that you did everything you could possibly do to help her get well again. Sometimes things just happen out of the blue, things we don’t understand and find hard to accept, but Kira loved you and wouldn’t want to see you sad.
As a breed Rottweilers have a relatively short lifespan with the average being around 9 years, Kira had 10 1/2 great years with you and you with her. I know it’s hard but try to remember the good times and just hold onto the fact that you gave her a life of love and happiness, she was a lucky girl.
It feels as though you’re drowning in sorrow right now, but hang in there, as the days pass it will get easier I promise. I believe that Kira is at the Rainbow Bridge waiting for the day when you will be together again, she’s happy and not in pain or distress. She would want you to be happy again too.
One day you may feel like adding another Rottweiler to your family. No other dog EVER replaces the beloved one that you lost, but giving another pup/dog a chance at a happy life full of love and companionship can help ease some of the pain. There are a lot of lonely Rottweilers (and of course other dogs) in shelters and pounds across the country who desperately need love and companionship too. Maybe one day two of you will be able to help each other.
Give it time though, everyone is different and grieves in a different way. I’m afraid that there’s probably nothing that anyone can say or do to make you feel better right now, and that’s normal. But you will get through this!
Every one who’s ever lost a pet and reads this will sympathize I hope some of them have words that will help. I’m sure many of them are more eloquent than me! I wish you all the best and hope that you are soon feeling less distraught. ~ Sue
