Cry My Little Yorkie Died Last Week.....

Hi everyone, I'm new to this board/community (this is my 1st post!), but I was looking online and found this site because I need to grieve.

My beloved little Yorkie Misty died last week suddenly.

I'm still in shock....

I had noticed that she was acting kind of lethargic and was vomitting off and on for about a week, but usually she would get better. She was also acting a little slower than usual, but I just attributed it to older age (she was 8 years old) and maybe stomach upset. When I took her to the vet on Monday last week, the Dr looked at her blood work and suspected that she had Addison's Disease that was undetected.

The vet felt it best to keep her to get her blood levels stabilzed, so I left her there at the vet overnight so that she could get fluids. I even called and spoke with the vet directly after work, and he mentioned that she seemed to be doing much better w/the fluids, she seemed more alert, and was barking. So I left work feeling happy that she would pull through so that the vet could test her again in the morning and see if she had Addison's, and get her prescribed on medication. Anyway, to make a long story short, the next morning (Tuesday) the Dr called me and regrettably told me that she didn't make it. She died right before he came into the office.

As soon as I heard the news, I immediately left work, jumped in my car, and drove to the vet to go see her. I had to see her one last time, even if it was just her dead body. I was SO distraught that day. I felt like my own child had died. Like someone had stabbed me in the heart. She had been with me for 8 years, I had her since she was a puppy. She was only 4.5/5 lbs. She was my furbaby! Like a member of the family! I still feel so down and depressed. I've been crying off and on since last week. I don't even have the heart to tell her breeder what happened to her smh.....

It's been hard coming home night after night after work not having anyone to greet me. It's been even harder sleeping at night w/out her curled up next to me in the bed. I keep thinking I will see her when I wake up in the morning. Is that weird?? Has anyone else ever gone through this? It's like, I'm halfway expecting to see her sleeping in her bed, or curled up in my bed, or following me around to the bathroom, the living room, the kitchen, etc... I hadn't realized what a huge part of my life she was. I had a regular routine with her.

I've had many dogs that have come and gone while growing up, but she was literally the SWEETEST dog I have ever had. EVERYONE fell in love with her when they looked after her, or spent time w/her. I knew I could trust her with children, adults, anyone...I knew she would never bite anyone, or be mean/aggressive. She was such a sweetheart. She was also very well-trained. I had trained her from a puppy, and our bond was so close. She's been w/me through SO much.....heartbreak, moving out of my parents house to my own place for the first time, through the wedding of my sister, through moving cross country out to the west coast, ALL of it. We had been through SO much together.

I'm going to miss her terribly.... I just had to vent somewhere.....

So, sorry for your sudden loss! The loss of a family member is awfully hard, and your grieving, although it is so tough, is natural as well. Revel in the joy she gave you and the love you shared. No words can make your pain go away, but may help you share your feelings.

This is a site that certainly understands your grief!!

Oh I'm so sorry! It is really difficult I'm sure. Did the pain ever go away?

0_yorkie.gifWhen we lost our little Bichon Frise - the wife got this in the mail - it is worth repeating...

Rainbow Bridge
Author: unknown

There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of all its beautiful colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass.

When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always food and water and warm spring weather. The old and frail animals are young again. Those who were sick, hurt or in pain are made whole again.

There is only one thing missing, they are not with their special person who loved them so much on earth.

So each day they run and play until the day comes when one suddenly stops playing and looks up! The nose twitches! The ears are up! The eyes are staring and this one runs from the group!

You have been seen and when you and your special friend meet, you take him in your arms and hug him. He licks and kisses your face again and again - and you look once more into the eyes of your best friend and trusting pet.

Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together never again to be apart.

No words can express how very sorry I am for the loss of your sweet Misty. I had to put down my 17 y/o girl 20 months ago, it still seems like yesterday. Many of us here on YT have gone through what you are going through and know your pain. I still can't talk or write about my Matese without crying, even after adopting a lil 2 .5 y/o boy. As much as I love him I still mourn the loss of my little girl but, he has filled that empty space in my heart and replaced tears with laughter. As other members have said, look back and remember the good times, you were lucky to have had her in your life. (((HUGS))))

Thank you all so very much for the kind words of sympathy. It means so much to me.

I actually wrote a previous message earlier, but for some reason it hasn't showed up yet. I tried to include a picture of my late Misty, but perhaps we are not allowed to post pictures on this site/board?

Anyway, thank you all so much for your heartfelt expressions of sympathy. I'm just taking things day by day.

Awww...thank you guys! YEs, she really was a cutie-pie. Very sweet, loving, with a side of fiestiness as well. SHe really was a playful one, but could also be a little Princess when she wanted to be. Many times she would just jump and curl up on my lap and go to sleep while I was watching TV or something.

I miss her a lot.

Cry Grieving, too

I read your post and completely understand your grief. We just lost our boy, Milo, to a severe case of Pancreatitis and he was only 3yrs old. My heart is hurting and I am overwhelmed with grief. There is such an emptiness without him. He was our baby. My husband is also devastated. Everything reminds me of him. I keep thinking about his last days and wishing we could go back in time so we could do things differently. We know it was not our fault intellectually but still blame ourselves. He was such a joy and we expected many more years with him. I am sending an understanding hug. This is a good place to express your feelings because we all dearly love our babies. I know I loved mine with all my heart.
