Sad to say Cody passed on the 4th of July.  We went to Myrtle Beach to pick him up to bury him in the back yard with all of his other siblings here in VA.  He was born on on Christmas Eve of 1999 and died in the afternoon of July 4th 2016.  Interesting it was such special dates.  I kind of knew it was coming that day.  We're not as sad anymore - we know he had a long and healthy life.  Mom is doing better and already thinking of getting another companion.  I still see shadows in the corner and think I see him out of the corner of my eye.  I've even called for him coming into mom's front door a few days after he was gone - twice.  Our cat Theo is even older.  When he goes, I think we are done with having pets, grand-kids are enough.

Sorry to hear.  I have had cats all my life, so I have had to deal with losing pets, too (3 so far, at ages 19, 6, and then 15).  With each, like you, I kept seeing them in the shadows and in the corner of my eye for months.  A few times I could swear I heard him/her.  In some ways it was very disturbing, but in others, reassuring.

Pets ask for so little and give so much in return... We had a wonderful cat who died at the age of 19 who loved to play in the bed while you tried to change the sheets... Fast forward many years and for the strangest reason our 11 year old dog has recently decided she likes to play the exact same game...

Mia, our Wiener dog, loves to play "here comes the blancky" when the wife is changing sheets, too. Always has, ever since a puppy.
This street bike thing is all new to me.

Saying goodbye to my best little buddy, Sookie.
« Reply #86 on: June 15, 2017, 02:28:46 pm »
A light has gone out in my life and the world is a darker place for it.



We had to have my lil sweetheart, my buddy and perpetual puppy, Sookie, euthanized Sunday night. It was one of the hardest things that we've ever had to do. She was only 8.

She was diagnosed with a autoimmune disorder that attacks the red blood cells and in her case the white blood cells as well. Possibly a rare form called Evans syndrome.

We had just arrived at home after a 5 hour drive after a weekend long camping trip. Sookie was fine then and the entire weekend. The only issue with her was something that my wife noticed when we got to our campsite Thursday night. Sookie had some red blotches on her belly. They didn't seem to bother her and she was acting normal. I googled it and found some pics that looked like what she had. It was either from the sun or grass gnat bites. Ok, nothing serious.

Once we got home things changed in a big hurry. After I let the three dogs outside I noticed a red puddle on the floor. It seemed to be urine with a bit of blood in it. Then wife found another puddle on the rug near the door. It was very dark red blood. I didn't know which dog it came from so I went outside to see who it was. I checked Sookie first and my heart sank. She had blood all over her vagina and the backs of her legs.

This happened around 6:30 Sunday night and the only vet open in this area at that time was the emergency vet about 40 mins away (they're only open after hours and weekends). I called them and told them that we were on the way. Once we got there they took a quick look at Sookie and took her back for bloodwork. I was hoping that it was just a serious bladder infection or something treatable like that. When the vet came back with the test results the news was as bad as it can get. The prognosis grave. Her platelet count was near zero and she was bleeding internally. Her red count was also very low.

The vet injected the overdose of anesthetic into her IV line. Her leg twitched once (that twitch haunts me) and Sookie died on my lap while my wife and I held her. All that life and vitality all that joy and happiness gone in the space of a few heartbeats. 

I miss that little dog something fierce.


We have 3 dogs. Bosco (black and tan smooth coat mini Dachshund) is the oldest at 8. Agnes (half long haired red mini Dachshund half Yorkie) 4 years old and Sookie (half long haired red mini Dachshund half Yorkie) 3 years old. This makes Agnes and Sookie Dorkies.

Agnes and Sookie are sisters, same mom and dad, but one litter apart. Those two are rescues and inseparable. Sookie is a fetching fool and lives for it. She'll bring her ball back to you EVERY time and all you have to do is to put your hand out and she'll gently put the ball in your hand.

Oh man Conrad, I am so sorry.
I'm sure you gave Sookie the most amazing life.

-----------------

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 am truly sorry to here about Sookie, Conrad.
I've had to do that with 4 others in past years & it is very emotional to say the least.  :'(
