You are so right about that. It did take me a few years after I lost my last lab, I was so incredibly attached to him. I just couldn't get another. I kept seeing little ones and saying oh so cute I want it. But wasn't ready yet.
But then it happened, hubby called asking about brining one home and I was like I don't know. Then he said she was going to the pound to be put down, because the owner was sick and couldn't care for her, so I caved. All I can say is it was meant to be. She is the greastest. And she is obsessed with my hubby. I think once you own a pet that you dearly love, that it will never end, there will always be another fur baby needing love.
Stay safe my friend, you are needed.
I would love to hav a farm and lots and lots of fur babies but that is just a dream.
When our Snookie goes to Rainbow Bridge to join all her brothers and sisters from sis and myself ( big big family there)
The last 3 weeks showed sis and I what we are going to have to face one day.
Snookie was very very sick and so weak all we could do was cry.
I had to lift her off and on to my sisters bed because she sleeps with Mommy
One day she wanted down and before I could get her she jumped and my heart stopped because she did a belly flop on the floor and her four paws where straight out at her side.
Thankfully she did not break any thing but OMG the pain she was in was heartbreaking.
This was all my fault I gave her a pulled BBQ pork sandwich ,,, I still can not forgive myself.
But the pain pills and anti inflammatory meds our vet gave us she is pain free and today was her last dose.
She got spoiled I feed her every day chicken and rice freshly made then put two table spoons of her food on the side and she ate it all now the trick is to get her back on her dog food lol
As much as I would more than likely in 4 5 years have a lill fur baby grab my heart but I have to think I am 76 years young and due in the next two years for two shoulder replacement and have a tumor ( cancer) on the right kidney so I would never leave a fur baby behind.
Turning into a book again lol so wish you a great day and be safe my friend.
Awww bless you both. I know I hate to see any animal in pain (or person for that matter) I'd rather have to pain myself. But yes it is heart wrenching when you think you are the reason for that pain. I often wonder what runs through thier minds. While we are blamin ourselves they might be doing the same. Like saying well that wasn't very smart of me, now look my human is blaming themselves (dramatic sigh, lol).
Then on the other hand I should probably be grateful that we can't read their minds. Our lab is like a little busy body. Likes to lay in front of the window and nerighbor watch. They should be glad animals can't talk because oh the tales or tails, lol, they could tell. Mine would probably have me commmited.
I'm positive she knows you love her and would never intentionally hurt her and if she could, she would tell you so. They try to tell us in so many ways, we just have listen with our eyes to hear it. Just keep loving them, that's all they really want.
I wish you both well and will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.
Sorry just got around to reading the forum and your last post,
Snookie is right as rain now and back to her puppy self but man is she milking it for all it is worth like when I put her dog food down she smells then backs up ,, sits and looks at me as to say ,,,, hey what's up where is the chicken and rice??? you expect me to eat this???
We saved her but we lost our brother one week ago Friday so again he was our hero.
I posted in Prayers needed .... I put it in with Libby.s I was to messed up to remember were to put a new discussion.
Hope this finds you well
I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Wherever a beautiful soul has been. there is a trail of beautiful memories. You and his family and friends are in my thoughts and prayers.
No worries about the time it takes to responsd, as you can see I'm not very prompt, lol.
I know what you mean about the food change. We recently had to switch food too and also got them looks, lol. The Lab ususally will eat anything, as long as she's getting food she is happy. The Chihuhua is picky, really picky. He was almost starved to death when we got him, so you'd think he would just be happy to eat. Nope, lol. He will just stand there and stare at you if you give him something he doesn't want. Little brat, but love him anyway.
I am glad to here that she is on the mend though. Our Lab is too thank goodness. Please don't blame yourself, we are only human and make mistakes. You would never intentually hurt her and she knows you love her. I'm am sure she has loved the extra love and cuddles you been giving her.
Take care, Randy. Many prayes for healing and comfort.
Thank you Spazzy for your kind words and for your thoughts and rays
We are still raw and grab the phone every time it rings waiting to hear his voice.
As for the spoiled Princess she is wringing this for all it"s worth lol
But they are our babies
Snookie sends cuddles to your two babies and Sis and I send snuggles
Awww thank you, Randy.
We send all of you snuggles back. I wish I could take all your pain away. He's there in your heart, just keep remembering the good times. I'm sure he would want it that way.
Lol I'm sure she is. They do love our attention. The more snuggles the better is how they see it, lol.
Take care and big hugs to you all.
