View Full Version : Any pixie dust laying around?

15-05-2013, 03:45 PM
for this terrible birthday I'm about to have. Yes, this is not the day I would have planned if I had the choice. As it turns out I will be spending my birthday taking my puppy to the vet to be put down :sorry: We are beyond heartbroken, but we don't have any choice. I don't think I could have asked for a worse birthday gift, but we are trying to hold it together for now. Any pixie dust would be appreciated :sigh:

oh Shelly, I'm so sorry :hug2:

15-05-2013, 03:59 PM
Oh so very sorry for that. Very sorry indeed. :hug2:

15-05-2013, 04:49 PM
Oh Shelly, I am so sorry to hear this. It is a beautiful puppy. May I ask what's wrong? :hug2::hug2: :sorry::pixiedust::pixiedust::pixiedust:

Oh Shelly, oh shelly...I am so very, very sorry to hear this. I so wish I were there to give you a massive hug right now. This is so unfair. :hug2: Oh sweetie, I have no words...

15-05-2013, 05:21 PM
I just have no words....I'm so, so sorry. :(

Oh no :-( I am so sorry. Hugs to you my friend

He has cancer, which I guess is typical in the Malamute breed. He had surgery a year ago to get rid of a mass on his leg and it has been downhill ever since. He didn't heal very well and we have been going back and forth with antibiotics and Prednisone this entire time. He is getting more "cysts" and now they have started to burst and cause more infection. He is 11 and so even if they were comfortable doing surgery (which they are not), they don't know if it would do him any good at this point.

It is time, but I can't wrap my brain around it. It is a sad day..

Oh dear, Shelly, that is sad news. :comfort:

15-05-2013, 06:47 PM
Oh sweetie

Many hugs to you and your family.

What a wonderful relationship you guys had... I am sure he will be at the Rainbow Bridge, wagging his tail, feeling no pain, waiting for you to arrive

Shelly, you've given him lots of love and a wonderful home. It is time.

15-05-2013, 07:46 PM
:hug2: Thinking of you all.
Thank you for giving him peace. Better a day too soon than a day too late. He knows you love him and this is the ultimate act of kindness xxx

Shelly that was the same with Charlie, although it was lymphatic, have been thinking about you all day xx

Thank you everyone. It is done and he is sleeping.

The kids are heartbroken. Marc keeps saying he will never get to pet Dakota again. So very hard, but there is a sense of peace as well.

Thank you for the support..it helps! :hug2:

Oh Shelly :hug2: I am so sorry sweetheart :hug2:

You gave him the first greatest gift; your loving home. You gave him the next greatest gift; peaceful journey onward.

A hard birthday for you, but a compassionate and loving gift for the beautiful Dakota.

Shelly he is a gorgeous dog. I'm sure you and the kiddos had a great time with him. In time you will indeed get over his loss but I don't think you will ever forget him.

16-05-2013, 10:54 AM
He will always be in your memories Shelly, nothing can take him away from there :hug2:

Thanks everyone :hug2: Each day is better than the last and each time I see a dog I :sigh: a little bit!

It will be awhile for us. I think we will be waiting until Anthony gets a little older before we head down that road again :yes:

17-05-2013, 04:39 PM
give your hearts all the time to heal, and when you are ready, you will love going down that road once more :hug2: promise

Sorry it's so late Shelly, only just come on the boards but sending you lots of love and hugs :hug2::hug2: in what must be a very hard time for you all.

I'm so sorry Shelly. I'm always amazed on how something covered in fur can be so imbedded into our hearts. But then, I can't imagine a world where that didn't happen.
