My beautiful, best friend died unexepectedly this morning. Since coming home from California, she had a slight cough, which turned into an ocassional seizure. She had never had seizures before, so we got her medication ASAP. They seem to make the seizures subside. Unfortunately, over the weekend, her breathing got very heavy and labored and she began coughing more and more.
A preliminary visit at the vet had show congestive heart disease, but at a point where it could controlled with medication and no flued in the lungs or heart. We were thrilled there were time left for her. We got her started on anti-seizure medications right away over the weekend.
Last night was increidbly tough, she was breathing very difficulty and coughing, and I had to carry her outside to do potty. When I brought her back in, she plopped on her side and blood came out of her mouth - we knew it was time. We propped her up with blankets and towels and pet her and I told her I was there with her, but she was gone in a matter of seconds. I told her to go find Serena and wait for me later, and that I loved her very much and she made the last 12 years of my life a complete joy and I had no idea what I would do without her. ❤️😢🐶#divataunia#dogsofinstagram#s#dogsofinsta#beagle#beagles#music#music#musicismylife#mydogmylife#julipwasmylife
I'm lost. This dog was my co-hort, my best friend, my emotional support, my buddy, I loved her more than I loved any human being, and now she's gone. I hope she's in a better place, running around with Serena, and eating lots of her favorite cookies. xo
behind the scenes fact: i wasn’t wearing my gentle leader head collar when these photos were being taken, so momma had the time of her life being pulled up and down that street. at least I️ look good though 💕
