I'm so glad he wasn't suffering. I've heard so many stories that still haunt me of dogs suffering in these final hours. You were together with him... Such a very, very lucky boy to have so much love surrounding him!! I know he certainly felt your love!!!

I obviously missed this post. Have always enjoyed the posts about your "kids". So glad the family that loved him was with him in the end. This is a pretty big hole in your heart. I am so sorry.

Last night I chatted with Petey's litter-mate Achilles owner. Achilles suffered at the end, he went into CHF, he was PTS only 5 weeks before Petey.

I'm so sorry, Carol. I just now saw this.

I know exactly how you feel, it takes the wind right out of your sails. ( I lost my Mavis the exact same way )

We'll never know why these things happen, or how this fits into the plan, because we're not supposed to know - at least not yet.

You and Petey were lucky to have each other.

6 weeks have come and gone....still missing him every moment. Tomorrow would have been his 59th Petey Day. I can't wait to feel better.

I love Gracie beyond telling; she is perfect for our household and we enjoy every moment we spend with her. She brings joy into our lives.

That does not keep me from still crying now and then over how much I miss our Soda Pup-Pup who we lost the beginning of January.

I think it's merely sane to have and allow a full range of emotions.

It hurts and there's no easy way past the hurt. The only sane path runs right through it.

And Petey was special; no way around that.

I am sorry for your heartache. And I know you wouldn't take back one single moment you were fortunate enough to have had with Petey. Even if it would save you the hurt you have now.

It should be good to be Dog.

How is Monty doing ? I have a feeling Petey waited until all of you were together to make his exit so no one would be alone know it is so hard to loose a Fur Kid Hugs to you all give Monty an extra pet from me. Patches Mom

Cleaning out my email folders at work today I came across this poem I had sent to myself. I sent it the same exact day that Petey would end up dying 3 years later, August 14, 2008. I want to share it with everyone who has gone through Petey's life with me.


When I am gone, Release me, Let me go-
I have so many things to see and do,
You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears,
... Be thankful for our beautiful years.

I gave to you my love, You can only guess
How much you gave to me in happiness,
I thank you for the love you each have shown,
But now it's time I traveled alone.

So grieve awhile for me, if grieve you must,
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It's only for a time that we must part,
So bless the memories within your heart.

I won't be far away, for life goes on.
So if you need me, Call, And I will come.
Though you can't see me or touch me, I'll be near,
And if you listen with your Hearts, you'll hear
All my love around you soft and clear,
And then, when you come this way alone
I'll greet you with a smile and say

"Welcome Home"

Aww hi Carol, I read this and am sorry for your loss of long ago. I loved the poem you posted, very well thought out with touching words. I hope you find joy and peace soon, there are no words I can come up with, other than to say, I am sure he is up there watching over you. Hugs to you.

So many people loved Petey. He wasn't just a dog, he was so loved and well known. Yesterday 3 people came into work and had to tell me how much they missed him. While it touches me that he was so well loved by everyone who knew him, it doesn't help with my damn tears! He does come to me in dreams most nights, and all have been really good and comforting. I know some day in the future he will come back to me. I have faith that this isn't the end for us.

One thing to add, I didn't tell you all how he died. I think that it's important info for a Dobe owner. He got up to go out to the bathroom, as he did every night since the diuretics were started 18 months ago, and he collapsed on hubbies side of the bed. I had the lights on and was with him in seconds. He took about 3 breaths and was gone. Very quick, no suffering at all. Just traumatic for hubby and I. He still had no major symptoms the last week of his life. He was happy and having the time of his life. I think that if you don't want the type of shock of losing your dog suddenly like we lost Petey, do test for DCM. If we didn't know that we were going to lose him suddenly...we would have gone off the deep end after that experience.

Love to you all...and thank you from the very bottom of my heart, you all ROCK!!!!!
I wish I could ease your pain, but nothing I can say will help. I am going thru the same with Brusco now. He's been on Vetmedin for a month now, but pretty much sleeps most of the day. I fear the moment that he will collapse and die or if I have to put him down if he is suffering. Living with this fear is so hard. I don't want to leave the house for fear I will not be there when he dies.

I am so sorry for your loss and aching heart. I don't know how I'll be able to go on without my "Bunny" too.



I'm tired...

I hate hearing this. I am deeply sorry that you too are going through the hell of DCM. Tragic that so many of us have to see our healthy dobes in the prime of their lives get this horrible disease. I really hope that he doesn't suffer, although its so hard to lose them sudden, it's got to be worse to see them suffer CHF for even for a moment. Know you are in my thoughts and prayers. Enjoy every single moment you are granted with precious Brusco. You will have no regrets and be able to look back and smile. Don't worry about the when...he will pick the perfect time, they always do. All 4 of my boys have not slept here in this house since the night he died! Petey knew. My sons talk about him non-stop 16 months now. I wish a Petey dog relationship for every human alive.....it will change who you are. No regrets for my family, we loved him and he us.

Hugs to you and Brusco. Good vibes for lots of quality time left!
