Heartbroken

Post by suzytzu on Tue Aug 21, 2012 1:07 pm

cant believe i'm writing this, but sadly last night our beloved Jackson passed away. We adopted him when he was about 18mths. Just over 2yrs ago. He was very grumpy yesterday, wouldnt let me near him, and didnt want the other dogs near him either.
It was very warm last night, and he was restless, and panting, but so were the others so didnt think anything of it.

He went to sleep in our room then wanted out, so he had the run of the house, no sickness or tummy upset just moaning now and again.

This morning about 6.15 i was woken by one of the dogs barking. i couldnt fing Jackson anywhere, called him but no response. started to panic, then to my horror the other dogs showed me where he was stretched out behind the table. I bent down and knew straight away that he was not breathing, called my son as John is away at the moment, he confirmed that Jackson was dead. I cant begin to tell you how I felt, and still feel, i keep wandering round but not knowing what to do. He is now at the vets awaiting a private cremation so we can have his ashes back. It was the worst thing i have ever had to do. I couldnt tell john our son did it for me,as Jackson was his dog.

I will never get over seeing him lying there so still. All the other dogs have been so quiet today, mostly sleeping, must be doggy grief!!

Rest in peace little Jackson, we will miss you so much, especially your unusual bark

love mummy and daddyxx

That is just so awful. Does the Vet have any idea what might have happened or would they need to have a Post Mortem done? It is very hard to come to that sort of loss especially if there were no signs to speak of before hand. Run free at Rainbow Bridge.

Sorry to hear about poor Jackson. You must all be devastated. Losing a pet is the hardest thing we ever have to go through as pet owners, but it must have been such a shock as it was unexpected. Just take things one day at a time, and it will very gradually get better, but you will never forget him.

Your other dogs must be feeling it as well, so give them all a hug from me, and also a big hug for you as well. teddy hug

Hi thank you, its a week today that Jackson went to the rainbow bridge and its still very raw.
The dogs have been very quiet and slept alot, especially his best friend Charlie.
We let Charlie sleep in our room for a few nights to help him, but yes you are right they have been grieving for Jackson.

We should get his ashes this week, not really looking forward to that, but its what John wanted x

I always let my dogs sniff the ashes container... it seems to help them... then we have a cuddle and cry together before the healing process can start xxxx

Thank you thats a good idea, I will let them sniff the ashes, we will all say goodbye together! The local printers that we use are doing us a photo of Jackson, sophie is in the background, so they are going to remove her, so it will just be Jackson on his own, they are doing it free of charge thats nice isnt it xx
