    Unhappy Rascal may not make it through the night

    I am so terribly heart broken at the moment and cannot stop crying like a baby. My little white schnauzer Rascal doesn't look like he will make it through the night. He has been to the vet (3 different vets) and there is nothing that they can do. He does not seem to be in pain so they will not put him down. He is almost 13 years old and I guess his time is fast approaching. He has not eaten in the past few days or drank any water from what I can tell. I have been dripping water into his mouth for him to lick up. He won't move or can't I don't know which. I have to carry him outside to go potty, but he just collapses on the ground. This is gut-wrenching to see him like this. My stomach is knots. I've had Rascal ever since he was a tiny little puppy. I feel like a part of me is dying...

    Here is my Rascal boy...





    Sorry for rambling, guess I just had to get it off my chest

    I had a fox terrier named rascal who passed. His face reminds me of your dogs and it's weird I was just reflecting on him last night. However we have to accept all living things eventually cease I know had sad times like these are.

    I guess I'm just not ready to let him go yet. I've lost pets before, but Rascal is like no dog I ever had before... he will be missed sooo much I can't even put it into words

    Oh Lena how truly sad for you to have to go through this with your beloved little dog. It's the worst part of pet ownership that they only have such a relatively short time with us. Biggest of hugs coming your way and I'll put you both in my prayers.

    Re: Rascal may not make it through the night

    Lena, I'm so sorry for your heart ache.

    This is what Rascal might be saying to you: On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me please. Never say you can't bear to watch. Don't make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there, because I love you so.

    You are there for Rascal and that is all that matters to him- you are his pack. All living beings pass on and it is so hard to take that journey with those we love and know that we will be left behind with memories and a very hurt heart.

    But this is what is written when each animal takes it's first breath. Hang in there with Rascal. The death process is just that- a process; and it takes time. Love him through it and then take time for yourself.

    My heart goes to yours. Take care.

    Re: Rascal may not make it through the night


    I know how you feel. My dog what hit by a car recently and I thought she was going to die and I felt horrible. She survived and is still recovering but I dread the day she will pass on. Its tough on everybody when a loved one is lost. I wish you the best of luck and happiness.

    Thank you McKinsey, it is hard and your words described it perfectly. I just got home from practice and checked on him - his breathing is very shallow, I don't know what to do except lay on the floor with him and pet him and tell him how much I love him

    Thanks a bunch! I'm glad to hear she is recovering...give her a hug & a pet from me.
    Thanks again to all of you. I think getting it off my chest is making it a little easier to deal with
