Brie- January 7, 2009 to May 4, 2009

I'm putting the blog on hold for awhile to grieve the loss of my girl. I had her PTS today after several seizures and one very bad one at the veterinary hospital that left her brain damaged (though not confirmed medically I could see the difference). The specialist was 99.9% sure she had distemper as all her symptoms matched. Prognosis was very poor and even if she did make it she would've had neurological problems and eventually would've sucumbed to the seizures when meds stoppped working (I was told only one dog made it through distemper at that stage and 6 weeks later developed such severe seizures he had to be PTS). I cannot type too much now as it's still extremely hard not having her here as it is, much less reliving the entire situation.

    Oh, hon, so sorry to hear this, I was really hoping that she was doing better for you. My heart goes out to you...

  2. Oh, No! Heather, I'm so sorry!

  3. Oh, Heather, I am so sorry. :(

  4. Heather,
    I am so very sorry to hear about this awful outcome. My thoughts are with you as you grieve. I can't even imagine how hard this must be. Hold tight to the thought that you did the best for Brie in her short time with you and that she is just on the other side of the Bridge wagging and watching out for you.
    Love, Jackie

  5. Heather,

    There's nothing that I can say to possibly make this grief any better. To lose a friend, a companion, who is so young is absolutely awful. All of our thoughts go out to you, and to knowing she is safe and at rest where no harm nor pain can reach her anymore.

    I hope that eventually this thought can be of comfort. Much love from ours to yours,

    -Adrianna, Lou and Crookshanks
