I agree with Molly. I would lay with my girls & always tell them how much I love them. There is a special bond between a person & their dog. Not all people understand that one. We had taken a family picture (the 5 of us, Maggie, Pheona & Patch <the cat>) the day we took Maggie to the vet. I love that picture so much I had it blown up into an 18x24 size print. I framed it & have it hanging on our wall. Pheona used to sit quite a lot & would stare at the picture while whining. She still does from time to time & I stand looking at it a lot. Pheona & I were there for each other in the days after losing Maggie. We are all here if you need to talk. (((HUGS)))

I am so sorry you are having to go through this with Lilly
It is so hard to watch the furry members of our family suffer. I have lost pets, but never a boxer (M & M are my first two) and I certainly don't look forward to ever losing either of them. It is obvious how close you are to her and it sounds like you're doing quite a bit to try and help her. Hopefully they'll be a good turn of events. You have my prayers and well wishes. And smooches for Lilly
Glad you went to your own doctor for help, sometimes it's necessary

While I know there are some things that can't be fixed, I am by nature a positive thinker, which leads me to just one question or suggestion ( if you haven't done so already)
Have you or your vet consulted a specialist (Veterinary gastroenterologist) ?

Lilly became an Angel this morning. In my arms with the help of the vet. This is the worst day of my life, but she is watching over me now.

So sorry for your loss. Lilly was a lucky girl to have had you as her dad. May you find comfort in the memories she left behind.

I am so very sorry for your loss. We lost our Lillie almost a year ago to Evan's Syndrome, just two months shy of her 7th birthday. We were devastated. It was really hard for me because I wasn't even really able to be with her during her last few weeks. My father had just gotten home from heart surgery and I was living with him so he could get back on his feet. I was with Lillie at every vet appointment, but my husband and daughter had to deal with the day-to-day struggle. I was there at the end the day we helped her cross the bridge, but I felt incredibly guilty for not being able to be with her every day up to that point. Believe me, my shrink sees more of me every time we lose a dog than for any other reason.

Sadly, I'll probably be headed there again real soon as my Barkley is in his last days/weeks. Fortunately, I'm home this time. I only leave the house for work, but errands and everything else is up to my husband right now. I've taken up residence on the floor next to Barkley's bed. I can't stop touching him and telling him how much I love him. I'm a mess. I cry ALL the time. My boss already knows I'll be calling in when he goes. I won't be able to function. Fortunately, she's in rescue too so she understands.

Do what you need to do for yourself to get yourself through. There's nothing to be embarrassed about. We're all here because our boxers are part of our families. We're here to talk if you need us. We're here to listen if you just want to vent. May the happy memories of your sweet Lily bring you comfort and peace in the days ahead. ♥

Thank you all so much for the kind words and sharing the loss of my Lilly. As someone that has never taken prescription drugs before, I have to say that the xanax is an unbelievable help. Two friends took me to a nice restaurant tonight for a memorial dinner for Lilly, and I actually was able to function normally. I say this, even though today I walked alone in her favorite park and talked to her even though she was gone. I was even saying things like 'go potty sweetie''. I probably looked like a nut. I don't think I will ever stop talking to her, or visiting her favorite places. I can only imagine what I would be like right now without the xanax. No matter all the pain her passing has caused, if i had to do it all over again i would still pick that angel out of the litter, even knowing it was just for 6 1/2 years. She changed me.

I am so sorry for your loss. I am still grieving terribly for my boy who passed on dec 6. Sometimes I don't know if it will get better but I know it will. I cry all the time. Like you I would make the same decision to take that skinny boy home when he was thrown away even knowing we would only be blessed with him for 3 years. Our beloved dogs make us who we are. I am grateful for our time together despite the pain of his loss. Your Lilly was an angel and was called home. She is running pain free at the bridge with my Winnie. I plan on spreading some of Winnie's ashes in his favorite spots. I also plan on keeping some to be mixed with mine. I haven't been able to do it yet, but soon. I will keep you in my prayers.

Its such a hard thing to go through. I still grieve for Gouda. I have a pendant with some of her ashes I wear constantly, its become part of me and if for some reason I forget to put it back on after a shower I feel "naked" without her. It's been almost 6 months but the pain is still there, albeit it has gotten easier with time. Hugs to you and Godspeed sweet Lilly.
