my karma

Hi, I would just like to tell you a little story...

I had a 10 mounth old reg,yorkshire terrier, she was healthy as can be, 2 weeks ago I got a phone call saying my nephew had an accident at work an not expected to pull through.
So I flew out the door for the hospital,when I returned home the garbage was all over the house, coffee grounds, and just garbage.

That night she threw up I just thought it was from the garbage, next day by noon she was throwing every ten minutes.

I called the vet they couldn't see her until 10,30 the next day, by supper time she had loose stoole and by midnight it had small amounts of blood.

So I called an out of town vet he said he would see her at 8. I fell asleep and woke up at 6 it looked like a murder seen. So much blood!

I wrapped her in a blanket and left for the vet,it took 40 min to get there. I told him the story of the garbage and the coffee grounds.

He insisted it was parvo, I said it wasn't.

I knew my dog she was with me 24/7, but he insisted so he did the test which came back negitive. Anyway he said leave her here and i will see what i can do ,,,at supper time I called they said she was alert and sitting up ,they were going to un hook her, at 8am I got a call ,she didn't make it through the night.

Like I said I knew my dog and i'm sure it was the coffee grounds, so be very careful this season ,,,I miss her so much it hurts my heart, I hope I saved just one puppy in memory of my dear little karma..thank you for reading.

I don't know how it is to lose a dog (yet). Everytime I think about my life without my dog Hershey I cry forever.

I've lost two yorkies this summer. one was a rescue from the dog pound last summer. One I had for 15 years. I had taken them to the vet when they weren't acting right but by the time I'd get to the vet to pick them up they had passed. I've adopted another little yorkie and its tough going through the adjustment period because she's quieter than the one I had gotten from the pound.
I keep trying to caller her by the wrong name. She's not eating well and she is also 9 years old. I took her because they told me no one wanted the old dogs. I took her anyway because the one I rescued from the pound was an old dog but she was cute and loved us to the bitter end.
I still grieve for all of the dogs I've lost. they are members of the family like a child.
