All dogs go to heaven

Really really sad day today. Lots of tears shed around here. We had to have Tressel, our 3 year old Weimaraner, put to sleep. Such a freak accident, too. He ended up having this. We were at a brunch in the morning, we got home about 2:00, let's the dogs outside, and he was the healthiest dog in the world. We're guessing he just drank a shit ton of water from a puddle that had formed on the side of our house. Then he was out running around and his stomach must have twisted. 90 minutes later we had to make the decision to have him euthanized. He went downhill so fast, it's crazy. When I noticed he was in pain and acting strange I took him to the emergency animal clinic. They took an xray there and his stomach had twisted and was about 10 times the size it should have been. The 2 options we had were to have an emergency surgery done, for $5000, that had a 50/50 chance of working. And if it did work, the chance of it happening again was high. The other option was having him put to sleep right there because he was going down so fast. So I had to call cmk at home and told her to come to the hospital and say goodbye to him. We both just sat in the room with him for 10 minutes and bawled. They asked if we wanted to be there when they put him to sleep, but neither one of us could deal with that. It was tough enough just sitting there with him, and him howling because he was in so much pain and having foam dripping from his mouth. So they took him to the back room and that was that. I'm so heartbroken, I loved that dog so much. He was a little shit, he got into a lot of things, he did some damage to things in the house, but then he would come up to me and lay on my lap and all was forgotten. Every night when I get home from HD at midnight, he would hear the garage open and would run downstairs and meet me by the refrigerator because he knew that I was going to give him an ice cube. It's weird not having him around the house now. It doesn't seem real, mainly because everything transpired so quickly. I can't believe he's gone. RIP buddy. You're gonna be missed.

sorry to hear that Keith

had a similar dilemma with our lab when she was a pup, needed a new hip.


we got lucky and found a vet that would do a different surgery that was cheaper, but that's because we had time.

Blue said...

I went through the same decision process, if we hadn't found a different option, we'd have put her to sleep as well.
