buddy the dragon

by Gail

Friday night my pet lizard died.watched in

terror and helplessness as he took his last breath.I didn't know what was happening.He convulsed twice turned really dark black on his neck took a few breaths and then he died.I tried talking to him to try and calm him was afraid to touch him because didn't want to startle him.But now I feel guilty that I didn't do more to help him.I don't know if it would have made a difference.But am heartbroken.How do I get over the pain? It hurts so much.I am a basketcase.His tank is a reminder of the tragedy.I video taped it because didn't know what was going on and was going to show my husband his behaviour.I had texted him at work when he started to act strangely so I video taped it to show him.not realizing it was his untimely death.All I do is cry.This is the first time I have dealt with death of a pet.I've never watched anything in life die.It makes it even harder to deal with.

Gail -
I am so sorry for your loss of buddy, I too am going threw my own grieving. I felt guilt too because i wished i had taken my trixie sooner or to a different vet or just kept her home so she can pass away in our home but we can't second guess, it will just drive us crazy. I keep telling my self she and i had a great time together, we charished every moment, keep that to seek comfort in, someday when ur ready u may want to fill that tank again. Buddy is smiling down on u, dragons go to heaven too.
