Lost our 6 year old dobie tragically yesterday to DCM

Hello, This is my first thread I am a newbie. Guess I needed to tell other doberman people my little sad sad story

I am sad that this is my first thread. I guess sad is an understatement, but I think writing about this will help me.

We had a 6 year old doberman named Angel. We got her from Liberty Dobermans outside of Calgary Alberta. Her registered name was Libertys Angel Star.
I acctually cant belive I am making this thread. I am still in shock.

Angel has always been very very healthy. I work at a vet clinic so she would always get the best up to date care.

2 days ago we were playing in the yard and she just ran out of stamina, she just couldnt make it up the hill, and then laid down to rest so we sat with her, hugged her and within 2 minutes she was up and her old self ripping around having fun.
We didnt think much of it just thought she needed a break, it was a hard day of play. But I did still contacted my vet, I work there so I was able to contact her that evening. My vet told me to bring Angel in the next day for some heart x-rays.
I said ok. I was in no panic. Why should I be right? She looks fine, is eating good, having fun, drinking. She just got tired no big deal.

So I took her in the next day. I had to work so she got to come to work with me. My vet did an exam. Then she did x-rays. And a couple of the vets reviewed them. I was then told she had an enlarged heart and they were quite sure it was DCM. I didnt panic yet.
Our next step was to take her to a specialist in another city, see what could be done, how bad it was, if any meds could help etc.....

After my shift, which was a short one only 4 hours that day, I was gonna take her home.
She was so happy when she saw my car keys, I let her out of the vet kennel and went outside into the parking lot happy bouncy, total normal Angel, I opened the hatch of my car for her to jump in.
She went to jump in and instead of jumping she fell over on the cement. she tried to get up, but couldnt, I yelled for the girl who lives in vet clinic, she came out and saw me. I said what do we do? We were about to lift angel into my car or god knows what we were gonna do. But she died right there in my arms within 30 seconds.
I knew the second her body went limp that she had died. I litterally lost it..... I ran into the vet clinic crying.
One of the vets ran out and grabbed Angel from the parking lot and brought her in. I was told to leave the area. I knew she was dead, but the vet tried to resesitate her for 25 min I know they did it for me, because I worked there because they knew Angel.... The vet then came and told me I am sorry she is gone.
Although I knew that in the parking lot. They tried and if that dog even had a 1% chance of being brought back it would have happened. They tried everything.

How did this happen I thought? How did my totally happy healthy bouncy full of life dog just die in my arms?? How was this fair...... How did I just go from having her jump in my car to us carrying her body to my car......

She died of DCM at only 6 years old, with really no warning signs...... It just happened that fast.

I wasnt prepared. This happened yesterday. And I am so upset I dont even know how I can go back to work, where she died......

We are so mad and sad right now. Its just so scary it can happen just like that.
I cannot get rid of the images in my head of her dying.... I cant even belive it happened that way. I cant belive she died in my arms.....

I just needed to share this. I needed to let everyone know that this DCM can just take you pup away at a moments notice.....

It was just so so so tragic. I still dont belive it happened.

Thank You for taking your time to read this long story.

I really wish there was a way to console you. Believe me, many of us know exactly what you are going through right now and it brings back so many bad memories for us. My girl was playing on a warm New Years day watching the kids play on their bikes, I went to the store to pick up dinner and when I came back she was gone. She was happy, running and playing when I left. She even had a full check-up including echo not even 3 months before when she needed surgery for gum hyperplasia. It is devistating to say the least. BUT, trust me when I say she was a lucky one. Sudden death is so much easier on both of you than having to live with CHF. I'm sure you know this but if you're like me I felt robbed. I told myself that if only she got sick I would take care of her, that I would have some forewarning that I didn't have that long with her. I've been there, done that before also and I know in my heart of hearts that no dog is deserving to go through that. You were there with her, she knew only comfort and safety with her loving family. That counts for a lot. I hope you find peace in knowing this. She didn't suffer, she was with her family the whole time and died very happy.

Thank you very much everyone for your thoughts.

Hbwright- You said the word robbed, that's exactly how we feel, robbed of saying goodbye,
robbed of time with her.... She died 45 min after her X-rays
How was that fair she did die with me... I am very happy for
her that I was there. Just unhappy with he memory I have of it
It makes me sick to think about.

Thank you
I know you all know how we feel...

RIP my girl

I'm truly deeply sorry for your loss. It is tragic for a healthy 6 year old to die suddenly. DCM sucks. I lost my 4 year old Petey in August to DCM, he also died suddenly in my arms. The shock of that kind of death takes a long while to wear off, I still wake up in panic attacks eight months later. Take it one day at a time, be good to yourself, you have been through a very traumatic experience that nothing could have prepared you for. I will tell you, your girl didn't suffer, and right now you won't see the blessing of that, you will later on though. You have come to the right place to share your girls life. Hugs to you.

I am so very very sorry for your loss. I wish I had some words of comfort for you. Your story made me cry as well, it is utterly heartbreaking and I wish no one ever had to lose a dog to this horrible disease. Cherish the memories you have with your sweet Angel and be glad that she did not have to endure months of suffering and pain. Hugs and good thoughts to you and your family.

Thanks for sharing your story. The time these wonderful creatures are with us is always too short. It's hard now, but I hope you will come to take comfort in knowing that you gave Angel a great life and that her memory will always live in your heart.

I am also crying. I am so sorry for your loss. Be comforted in knowing that you were always there for her while she was alive and that she was with you when she passed. She was getting in the car to go home with you. While it is so heart-wrenching, at least you were there when it happened. RIP, sweet Angel.

I am so sorry your sweet Angel died and at such an early age. To have such a wonderful companion one minute and gone the next just isn't fair.

I know what you are going through as I lost my sweet, beautiful Wheeler to DCM. I had about six months notice but that's not nearly enough--as if any time is ever enough. One night he raised his head and looked at me and laid it down and went to sleep forever.

Why don't you prepare a memorial of photos of Angel and post it here at the bridge. My memorial to Wheeler took me a couple of days to prepare but it did a lot to help me at the time.

Again, I'm very sorry for your loss. We all hurt for you.

I'm so sorry for your sad loss. When I read Rainbow Bridge Posts it makes me cry too.
I lost my Strider last October to Lymphoma. I was with him in the end too and no matter which set of circumstances lead us to saying goodbye. The bottom line is. It's not easy.

I second one of the above posts. Be good to yourself. Really that's all you can do as you go through things. I wrote a little poem/description of Strider. It's carved into his wooden Urn that's in my house. It made me feel better writing it. And I wrote it the day he died. Just so I , and anyone reading it would know who he was and how special he was, and that he existed, and that he brought joy and was full of life.
Hugs.
