Gentle Moses

(Clark co ky)

My Moses was a beautiful Austrilian shepherd and spitse. He was 14and died last night. He had fallen and hit his head and was seize ring . The vet was with him in my kitchen and he was on his bed. His heart gave out. I loved him so much and I fill so guilty I can't stop crying. He had had the loose bowel movement and I made him go out and it was rather warm. Vet said he had heat stroke. I have been cleaning up after him so as he just dropped his poop whenever. I am 78and was getting so tired of cleaning after him. He has been such a good companion since I retired. Got him month I retired 1997. He had water and his mat on porch which is just a stoop with one step. I left him out until 8:30 from 5:00. I feel so guilty he did not get to come in. I was getting ready to let him in when I saw he was seizing. Got him in a friend carried him and I called the vet. He Sid he had a bad heart and was not getting air ans he passed shortly. I have never been mean to him. He slept with me until 2years ago when he got spo feeble he could not get in bed. The last few weeks I made him sleep inkitchen because of his bowel movements. I cant get over the guilt and I a. Getting so depressed.

Thank you so much for your comments. It helped me so much to have someone who understands guilt.. So sorry for your loss.i pray we will be able to understand and accept our judgment. We thought we were doing the right thing at the time. Thanks again for your thoughts.

I feel for you and your loss. I know how you feel as it pertains to the guilt. I called to my little Snow Snow and she ran across the street and got hit by a car. She was just doing what I asked of her and now she is gone. I wish I had an answer for your pain but I don't. I just live day to day haunted by my stupidity and cry every day due to missing her so much. Like your Moses she was my companion and meant the world to me. i hope that in time we learn to laugh and smile again and remember all the joy that they brought into our lives.

May you feel better.
