My Lady

Goodbye little Lady, my little star, I love you so much

Goodbye little Lady, my little star, I love you so much

I was so against having a pet. I was already having two kids of my own and having a pet would add up to the pile of responsibilities. So every time my husband would suggest buying a dog for the kids I was totally negative. Everything changed when we went at a park and a little creamy fur ball came out of nowhere and was following us everywhere being everso friendly to the kids. There was no one around and it was clear that she was a stray. When we got into the car she ran as fast as she could behind us and finally since the whole thing was so heart breaking I told my husband to stop the car and let her in. And there the story goes. She was a mix poodle terrier but who cared about breeds? She was giving lessons of love to everyone. That two month little soul entered our lives and became so loveable to all my family and friends. My daughter named her "Lady". Our sweet little playful Lady. She was all sentiment. Needless to say I was the one taking care of her and sometimes I found my self being strict regarding her running into the house etc. But despite all, my heart had so much room for her to be in it. To cut the long story short one day I found out she had her period. She was about six months old and I called my vet suggesting spaying. He agreed and an appointment was made. It was just routine he said. Little did I know. That morning I took her to the vet ...He informed me that I could get Lady in the evening. And I waited for the phone call. Finally the phone call came. It was my husband informing me that Lady's heart didn't cope. She died as soon as the anaesthetic was given to her. That happened yesterday. I felt that someone crushed me down. That someone stubbed me. The pain is terrible. My older daughter is totally hurt and won't sleep alone at night.

I cannot stop my self from crying and remembering all those little moments of happiness we shared with her ...I'm so desperate regarding my next move. Hide her stuff away?..Get a new dog that looks like her? Never getting a dog again? I'm in a shock honestly speaking and the pain is unbearable to all of us.

A note on rescue dogs...
by: Anonymous

Just one further note...you may wonder why I did not mention potentially getting another stray or rescue dog. While I totally believe in adopting rescues or strays (and have had some myself), in this case I would suggest going with health-screened purebred instead because you and your kids have already suffered enough from this situation. The last thing your kids need is to bring another pet into the family, only to have this happen a second time. at least with a health screened purebred you stand a much better chance of avoiding this kind of heartache again, so soon after your current loss. And please, don't let anyone guilt you into getting another rescue (unless you want to go that route, which is fine too, if that is truly what you want) - you can always add one another stray or rescue later, if you want to. In the end, this is really about you deciding what is best for you and our family - while I have made a couple of suggestions, only you know what is really best or you and your children. Take care, and I hope that everything works out well for you!

So sorry about your loss
by: Anonymous

Your story is very touching, and I am so sorry that you lost your Lady. It's a great reminder to all of us to take nothing for granted, and to enjoy every moment with our family and friends, whether they have two feet or four.
As for what to do now: well, speaking as someone who has also lost a beloved pet, here is my suggestion...take some time to mourn your lost friend, and to think about all the wonderful times you had together. Perhaps you could even put together a small photo album of her pictures, including some pictures of her with your kids (might help your children feel a bit better, too, as they relived some happy memories).
When you have had a little time to gradually feel better, think about what you learned from having your dog, and how she enriched your life (and you enriched hers) even during the short time you had her. Now think about doing this for another dog...but if you decide to do so, this time please find a top-notch breeder who checks their dogs for genetic defects like weak hearts, hips, eyes, etc. so that you, your family, and the new dog do not have to repeat this tragedy.
I don't know for certain when you posted this story, but if you can, please let us know how you and your family are doing. I will be thinking of you, and hope that you feel better soon. If there is something we can send you, such as links, information, etc. please let me know. I would be happy to help because I am a fellow pet owner and know just how devastating it can be to lose a beloved four-legged friend.
