Daily Diary: I’m So Scared For My Puppies


I guess they aren’t my puppies. Jack and Jill are 10+ years old at this point. But they are so small and furry and adorable. I just love them to pieces! I can’t help but think of them as babies.

Anyway, I’ve mentioned before that they are getting a little sick. It’s now to the point where one of them is choking, gasping for air etc – every other hour. I can’t pet them around the neck anymore! It causes them to FREAK OUT and start snorting and shaking. It’s horrible!

So, I just stick to their bellies and their backs. I know they will eventually go – it’s part of life. But I can’t imagine how quiet (and clean) my house will be without them.

Have you had an animal pass? How did the kids take it?

try a vet that uses homeopathy/accupuncture.I had a case years ago, one f my dogs got very sick and i took him to several vets and they said there was nothing to be done and hes die within a few months, i tried a vet with homeopathy/accupuncture and he improved within weeks and died at 15 y/o!since then ive treated them with alternative medicine with excelent results

Yes, we had a Basset we put down a few years ago. Now we have a Chihuahua. He too has the choking that is sounds like yours has. Our vet says that he has an enlarged heart and that it puts pressure on the esophagus, which causes himt to feel like he needs to caugh. They said there is nothing they can do. Other than the occasional choking and not being able to go for very long walks, he is happy and healthy. Good luck to you with Jack and Jill, it is always hard, they are just like your babies.

We did in January. Our oldest, 26, really loved that boy Jack. He held him and hugged him but knew it was time for him to go. He couldn't walk that morning-one side of his body his legs couldn't hold him. He was a sweet standard poodle of 12. He had been going downhill for awhile and had trouble getting up, and he coughed quite a bit also. It was horrible. We have another standard we got a few months ago. That helps. It is very hard though to see them start to go down and knowing what is coming. Ugh. Hoping maybe the vet can help.

My dog died right in front of me from old age 19 months ago in my kitchen both of my boys were home and knew she was getting old - was very heartbreaking but like everything in life there is a time when things die and your kids need to learn this lesson too unfortunately so no need to lie to them about it, best thing to do is talk to them about how your puppies are getting old and that may mean that they will no longer be around. Good luck Vera maybe you need to take your dogs to a vet now to make sure they are not suffering does not sound to pleasant for them at all..
