Unlove New Member BIG LOSS

My first post is not a happy one. Our 11 yr old teapot (20 pound) yorkie (Smokey) past away Sat. at 1:30. In one week time he went from normal to emergency vet last Sun. to our vet Mon. to University of Tennessee Teaching Vet School Tues. He got the best of care but it was not enough. We still do not know what caused his sudden and rapid decline, but we hope that in the next few weeks when all the reports come back we can find out and perhaps it will help some other yorkie. 11 years ago my wife called me to say she and the kids had found the most adorable yorkie puppy and wanted me to come and see him. Having had several dogs in the past that were larger I did not see myself having a yorkie, but as soon as I saw all 2 pounds soaking wet of him he won my heart. Over the next years Smokey proved to be the most loving, well mannered, dog I had ever seen. When I was sick with pnumonia and in bed for 2 weeks he did not leave my side. When my daughter had her wisdom teeth out he stayed right by her side. When everyone was healthy he took turns sleeping with my wife and I, my son, and my daughter. He was not a one person dog, he loved the whole family. Smokey's kennel owner once told me that if you have had several dogs one day you will find THAT DOG. The one that stands apart from the rest and the standard you put others up against. Smokey was THAT DOG to us as well as others. We hope to do something with Vet school in honor of Smokey that will help other dogs. They were wonderful with him. We were able to be with him that last time he fell asleep never wake up again so that the last thing he saw was his loving family. Thanks for letting me join, it helps to post this.
Rest in Peace Smokey 2/28/99 to 6/25/10

I am sorry to hear of your sad loss.
Smokey sounds just like my teapot Coffee, kind, well mannered and very loving, so I can only imagine how great your loss is.
My thoughts are with you and your family.
RIP Smokey.

I am so sorry for the loss of your precious boy, Smokey. I understand the pain and loss you are feeling. Smoky was a very special boy who was also very lucky to have such a loving and caring familly. It sounds like you had a wonderful life together. The love you feel will always remain in your heart.

I am so sorry to hear about Smokey. It brings tears to my eyes. We have been where you are now and it's heartwrenching I know. It sounds like Smokey had a wonderful and loving home. He knew he was loved. As said before, he'll wait for you at the rainbow bridge. God bless your family and little Smokey.

So sorry to hear about your little one. Would be lovely if you could post a picture of him! Just know that as Yorkie people we all know exactly what you're going through, personally we've lost one and have two babies at this stage. It's probably the last thing you want to think of right now but maybe in future you might want to get another little one. They are all totally unique and one can NEVER replace the little one you've lost but once you've had a yorkie, you simply cannot be without them in your life! All the best to you and your family - it sounds as if you were the perfect family for your little guy!

I am sorry to hear about Smokey. Losing a "best friend" is more difficult than I ever imagined. My first yorkie had a collapsing trachea and even though he was not a candidate for surgery, the University of Tennessee Teaching Hospital was wonderful. They helped us keep our yorkie as comfortable as possible during his short life. I now have a beautiful little girl yorkie who is the joy of my life! She has also been treated at the University of Tennessee Vet Hospital for dietary issues. We are so fortunate to have a great vet hospital close by.

I hope Smokey is at peace and running around in doggie heaven with my little boy!
