I will miss you "sweetboy"
by Sonya Price
P'Nut was a beautiful cocker spaniel boy 9 yrs old. He suddenly developed seizures when he was 7 and I had a feeling I was borrowing time when I had to give him medication for this. Two vets looked at him and they could not figure out what was wrong so we treated him with Primadone.
Six weeks ago today he died. It all happened very fast. I told him "Mamas here baby, I won't let you suffer. He was staggering the day before he died and of course as always it was a Saturday. I gave him a bath hoping it might make him feel better but he just laid down in the tub and let me wash him. I burst out crying and I swear he knew I was upset and tried to lick my tears. I could not get him to stay on the bed with me. He wanted to die and not let me see him. We had to drive 25 miles to a vet and by the time we were there his eyes were fixed and dilated. The vet and I finally found a vein to at least get him under, as the vet did this I told P'Nut "Thank you sweet boy for bringing happiness into my life when no one else could". "Mama is still here sweet boy so just let the waters take you home honey and always remember that I love you more than life itself and you were the best dog anyone could ever ask for". He looked at me as if he understood and closed his eyes. We had to inject his heart with the medication twice, but P‘Nut was already sleeping and it was nice he did not jerk like some dogs do when the medication hit’s the heart.
There is so much about my little boy I would like to say but I am crying so hard right now I can't see to type much more.
I miss my sweet boy. I am going to pray for another one like him will come along for me. I can provide a wonderful loving home to an animal, but I cannot provide expensive services. I can groom a dog, love him, brush his teeth and make sure he is the best possible care. My vet will tell you about me.
