Unlove Newton, my baby, you will forever be missed

For my first post, I thought I'd share my Newton. He would have been 8yrs old in January but, he was ripped from our lives and my heart aches for his passing. I had gone out to the grocery store, just like every other Saturday. Several hours into the trip, I get a call from my father, he is frantic and tells me to call back right away. Newton had been attacked by our next door neighbors Neopolitain Mastif. I return home to my baby laying under a blanket on my front lawn. He's still alive. We find him a vet, not our own but the only one we can get a hold of. After waiting an hour for him to become available we get Newt there. Through X-rays and all, the vet says he is save able! I'm so excited! It wasn't meant to be. Newton died early the next morning. The vet thinks the trauma was just too much. All I can see is his little eyes looking at me. All I could do was kiss him, tell him I love him and tell him the vet was going to fix him. I feel so guilty for leaving him there, alone, all night, his last night on earth, afraid. I feel like I failed him. My husband and BIL were both with him in the yard, trying the hardest they could to get that monster to drop him. They could not. I can picture it, the horror. It's been a month and I miss him everyday. I think of him everyday. He was my baby. I had him since he was 5wks old. I fed him with a bottle. He was such a good boy. He didn't deserve to die this way. I wish he didn't have to die. I had is body cremated. It is not back yet. I got a beautiful rotating urn that has spots for pictures. It also has a lovely plaque for his name and a little saying. I clipped a piece of his hair and got a print of his paw. <3
Yesterday, hubs and I went and decorated a tree in his memory. We plastered it with so many pics of him, everyone different, doggy bones and toys. I love him so much. It was my Christmas gift to him.
Life continues on...someday we will meet again at rainbow bridge. Until then little dog!

I am so sorry for your loss. I know how you feel...I too, lost my baby, Tameka, a few months ago. She was 10 years old and started vomiting. I had her at the vet and ran tests, x-rays, blood work, meds and special foods. To no avail, she just couldn't keep anything down. I miss her so much!!!! To help with the emptyness, we got a new puppy. Even tho she fills my days with sunshine, she is just not my Tameka,who I miss dearly! ((Hugs)) to all!

Oh, R.I.P., Newton. I'm so sorry for your terrible and horrific loss. Your pain and shock have got to be awful right now. Decorating that tree is a wonderful idea and homage to Newton's life. So very sweet. We know little Newton is now at the Rainbow Bridge playing in great health and happy with his buds, waiting for that day you come for him. Go ahead and grieve all you need but at some point fairly soon report the attack and killing of your dog to Animal Control and ask the Police if they need a report since apparently the killer dog was off lead and unrestrained. As he did not attack a human, they may not consider him a dangerous dog but they still need to be aware of the attack and quarantine him in case he has rabies or something and could be a danger to humans and other animals. Again, I'm just so sorry your little one had this happen to him. God bless you and your family.

Losing one loved so dearly is always so difficult to bear, and your loss is so very tragic. Newton will forever remain a part of your heart. I hope the memories of the beautiful life that you shared with your little boy bring you comfort and that they help to erase your tears. I am deeply sorry for your loss.

Thank you all so much for the outpouring support and love. I've never felt this way over the loss of a pet. Although I've only ever lost one other, a kitty. He was 17 and I was sad but it's not the same. My little Newt had such personality. I used to call him my pompous Englishman! Lol! He thought he was human. He used to run to the tv every night when the jepardy theme song came on and he'd howl like crazy. He also loved the Christmas Hershey kiss comercial with the bells ringing. I miss him so, so much. His bed is still at the bottom of my bed and his food dish still on the floor. I don't have the heart to move them.
As for the dog who attacked him, he has been euthanized. The warden in our town said the dog was aggressive toward humans as well as other animals. I am sad about that too bc now two dogs are dead and I know it's not that dogs fault. The fault falls on the owners of the dog. I'm not sure that they actually had their dog for the same purpose that we had Newt, for love. The people have not been held responsible for our vet bills either. The only one who paid in this situation was their poor dog. It's sad. He paid the ultimate price for their neglect, irresponsibility and negligence. Then when I was taking my other dog, Nelly, out the people were walking up the street and I could hear one of them say, is that the survivor of the other one? I yelled at them. Its just a horrible situation. I don't even want to see them. They knew their dog was dangerous.
We have gotten a new pup too. His name is Raleigh. He is 9 wks old and such a joy. I've had him a week and he is already in my pocket. He's the sweetest thing. I love him. He is not a replacement for Newton but, a new addition and I am so happy to have him.
I will never forget my Newt. He is always in my heart and always in my mind. So many happy times we had together!

I just replied but, I have to wait for a moderator to approve it. I think it may have been too long.

Thank you all!
Juliealfies mum, I am devastated. I hate the way he died and it feels like he was just ripped out of our lives. I try to remember and tell myself he had a great and happy life. He was so so loved. I know he knows that, just like he knows that we would have given anything to save him. Until we meet again.
