I'm really struggling. We lost our girl, Kilo, on Monday very suddenly. She had a leg surgery a couple weeks ago and had some complications from her medications that ultimately meant she needed emergency surgery which she didn't make it through. We took her to the vet on Sunday thinking it was just a stomach ache due to meds and the next day we got the call she needed emergency surgery. Then later that day I got the worst call of my life. She didn't make it through surgery. I'm heartbroken. I'm devastated. I can't stop feeling guilty about not taking her in sooner, wishing she would have let me know how much she was hurting. Tomorrow was supposed to be her two week follow up from her surgery. I'm uncontrollably sobbing every day. I can't stop thinking about her. She was going to be 6 in march and taken way too soon. She was the sweetest, silliest, most loving and playful black lab ever. My heart is broken and I feel empty. She was my baby. I don't know how to go on each day feeling like this. It seems that each day that passes I just feel farther from her. I miss her more than I can describe. I know they aren't meant to stay forever, but it was so sudden and too soon.

Oh, dear. This is so sad, a young baby. Who would think such a young dog would suffer fatal complications? Especially a playful, silly girl. They are so good at hiding their suffering, they are so brave. I don't think any of this is your fault at all. I know absolutely that she felt surrounded by your love for her. I pray that she was taken by angels. I pray this for my own animals and for any animal I am concerned for, that they be comforted by angels. Sadly, they do fade, but I believe that this is only for a time. I she waits for you patiently.

I really feel your pain having lost my beautiful collie Berry suddenly too on NY eve. It is so devastating especially at that young age ( Berry was nearly 14). All I can say is you done what was best and gave your dog love and devotion for 6 years, remember that, says she who cries everyday. Everyone on this site will support you in your grief. People who are total strangers have been so very kind to me so I send that kindness to you in your loss. May you find some peace soon. x
