Few days ago I noticed a growth on my bulldogs inner thigh, took him in yesterday to have it removed, no bigge, the vet called a few hours later and said that he came out of the surgery fine, but they wanted to keep him overnight because of the location the tumor was in. They said it was the size of a tennis ball. Anyhow, got a call a few hours later from the vet saying that he had died, apparently the tumor was causing a lot of blood clotting, and a blood clot got loose and went to his brain. Its bothering me a lot more than I thought it would, I guess its because it was because it was so sudden and unexpected because he was so young and healthy. I seriously havent cried in like 15 or so years, but I balled like a baby about 5 times yesterday.

RIP:03-28-06





Gonna miss looking outside and seeing him sleeping on the trampoline

SBCZILLA, I am so sorry for your loss.

We lost our bulldog back in October and miss her terribly.

Dogs Don't Have Souls, Do They?

I remember bringing you home. You were so small and cuddly with your tiny paws and soft fur.
You bounced around the room with eyes flashing and ears flopping.

Once in a while, you'd let out a little yelp just to let me know this was your territory.
Making a mess of the house and chewing on everything in sight became a passion, and when I scolded you, you just put your head down and looked up at me with those innocent eyes, as if to say, "I'm sorry, but I'll do it again as soon as you're not watching."

As you got older, you protected me by looking out the window and barking at everyone who walked by.
When I had a tough day at work, you would be waiting for me with your tail wagging just to say, "Welcome home. I missed you. "You never had a bad day, and I could always count on you to be there for me.

When I sat down to read the paper and watch TV, you would hop on my lap, looking for attention. You never asked for anything more than for me to pat your head so you could go to sleep with your head over my leg.

As you got older, you moved around more slowly. Then, one day, old age finally took its toll, and you couldn't stand on those wobbly legs anymore. I knelt down and patted you lying there, trying to make you young again. You just looked up at me as if to say you were old and tired and that after all these years of not asking for anything, you had to ask me for one last favor. With tears in my eyes, I drove you one last time to the vet. One last time, you were lying next to me.

For some strange reason, you were able to stand up in the animal hospital, perhaps it was your sense of pride.

As the vet led you away, you stopped for an instant, turned your head and looked at me as if to say, "Thank you for taking care of me.

I thought, "No... thank you for taking care of me."

Sorry for your loss...my cat died a few days ago, and that's not fun. But having lost dogs, losing a cat is not nearly as bad as losing a dog (course, all the dogs I've lost have been in the family for years, the cat wasn't even a year old when hey just turned up stiff.)

You'll see him again at the bridge.

Sorry to hear of your loss. I have 3 labs, and can't imagine how hard it will be when they are gone. Dogs are one of Gods greatest gifts to us, and I'm sure without a doubt, they will be in Heaven to greet us when we get there.

Rainbow Bridge



Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

I had to put the first dog I had to sleep in 1997. It was not pleasant. I still miss her. She was much better behaved than the three dogs I've come into now.

My dad had to shoot one of his favorite dogs because it was killing sheep.

May God comfort you in the loss of a friend.

He looks like such a sweet dog. I am sorry about your loss. Maybe he and Nappy (1977-1991) can get together.
