RIP Wee AshPosted: July 14, 2012 | |
Yesterday after writing my post about Ash
Not having long to go
Things took a turn for the worse. She started whining every so often, but we thought it was because she couldn’t move but wanted to. She was very whiney today and they seemed to last longer.
At about three o’clock mum said she let out this massive howl, and mum went in to find her gone. She was very hard around her belly so i think she may have had kidney failure. I was out at the time so sent mum the number for the vet. The vet didn’t come out, so mums partner took her up in a taxi. It was £25 for the vets to dispose of her body. I think it is disgusting, but maybe that’s just me. The vet said that if we wanted we could have kept Ash until Monday, but i don’t think that would have been wise. The smell would have been one thing, and the amount of gas that would have probably built up inside her body wouldn’t have been good.
We had talked this morning about taking her up to the vet on Monday if things hadn’t improved, but thankfully she made the decision herself.
To be honest i never really bonded with her, but i’m just so glad that she went in her own time.
Run free little Ash girlie. You can bark as much as you want now, and you’ll not have to worry. You won’t be in any pain. Rest in peace wee one and sorry you’re last hours were so painful. I’m just glad you weren’t a young dog in a way.
