Well I had started a News Years Kit.. But I am afraid I do not have the heart right now to work on it. So I will not be able to get one out this year.. My beloved Dog of 13 years Teddy Passed Away Saturday Nov the 26 at 2:30 pm. And I am not handling it very well at all. I cry every time I walk through my house. Cause Teddy was always right behind me every where I went in this house. Or he was laying close by my chair. He was truly my shadow in this house. My heart is so broken. He suddenly got sick with what we thought was a simple tooth infection. And also that his eye was swollen and red. But when they put him to sleep to work on him they found a large hematoma in the top of his mouth that ran down into this throat. They said it was 50/50 chance the medication would clot it and that he would heal. The Vet said she would not recommend surgery at his age they would be reluctant to do it. Because of the fact that his life expectancy was only 12 to 15 years and he was 13 years old. Well They said he also had glaucoma in his eye. Well the Vet was suppose to order some medicine to help relieve his eye. But when I called Tuesday for a second time they still did not have it. Instead she goes we just need to remove the eye.. Well that made me angry. I had been using this vet for 13 years and I trusted them up until she said that about his eye. So I called and made him an appointment to see another Vet. Had I kept listening to the other Vet they would have removed his eye for no reason. The New Vet took one look at my dog and knew he had an infection and tested his eye he did not have glaucoma either. They then did blood work to confirm what she though. She found he was anemic and did indeed have a bad bacteria infection. She could not believe the other Vet missed that. We were told he most likely had a blood disorder also. But they felt they needed to get the infection under control before it got septic. He was due back at the Vet on Monday For more testing and for us to get results on the blood work. That Vet called every day to check on Teddy. Teddy seemed to be responding to the medication to clot his blood and heal the hematoma. He had stopped the hacking he was doing. He was eating soft food really well. But suddenly Saturday he started hacking and acting as if he was choking. We called the emergency clinic to make sure they were open and they would have a Vet in. But before we could get him to the Car He yelped and the hematoma ruptured and my beloved Teddy was gone all within a few minutes time. I am just so in shock at how fast it all happened. My heartache will mend with time.. But My home will always be so very empty with out him here. I take comfort in knowing he is not suffering any more. And that he is once again beside his best Friend Rocky who passed away Dec, 10 2013. They are buried side by side on a good friends Land. My poor Gizmo has been lost all day also. He laid by me in my chair most of the Day which is unusual for him. He usually wants to lay on the Couch with Chris but not today. I do worry about him when the day comes we all need to be gone at the same time. He always gets whiny when someone leaves this home. And has separation issues. When we all had to leave he would curl up right by Teddy's side. And now he will not have Teddy to do that with.
