Default My best friend Hachi R.I.P

I feel like my whole world has ended this weekend. I need to share with people who really understand how painful it is to lose a beloved member of the family.

Hachi was just 27 months old and I had to get him put down today. My heart is broken. He was running around playing even out on his usually walks just this Thursday gone.

He was feeling well on Friday and wasn't eating, was vomiting a bit but still drinking a lot of water.

Saturday morning he seamed a little better even played a bit of ball but when he didn't want his breakfast again I knew it was time to bring him to the vet.

The appointment was for an hour after I rang. In the car going down I knew something was seriously wrong I could see the pain in his eyes. He became almost life less when my dad put him up on the vets table.

The vet said he needed to run tests and keep him in to give him iv fluids but it didn't look good. He rang with an update last night it wasn't good the fluids were just running back out as really bad diahrea. He said he would keep trying through the night but this morning he called to say it was time to put him to sleep he won't be getting better and was in pain.

He has had problems with an auto immune disease the past couple of months that he had been taking medication for as his paws were getting sores and rashes on them. What nobody could of known is he had internal ulcers and they burst inside him causing irreversible damage.

My heart broke. I just can't believe my boy is gone so suddenly.

R.I.P my sweet boy.

I'm so sorry. It's hard to lose them but unbelievably tragic to lose them so young. He was a very handsome boy.

Run Free Hachi

I'm so sorry. What a shock and such a tragedy to loose such a young dog. He was so handsome and I know you'll miss him terribly.

Rosa...I'm so sorry for your loss of Hachi. I just went through this a year ago fighting to keep mine alive for 8mos. I still think and talk to her every day. He is no longer in pain, and that's the most important part. Take care.

I'm so very sorry but it sounds like he had the best life he ever could have, with you.
Rest in Peace, Hachi!

Really sucks to lose your best friend. It's so ironic that most of these ailments, including terminal malignancy, when they occur in humans, are treated aggressively. However the same degree of interest is never shown towards our four-legged friends despite tons of literature being available for the same. I just lost my best bud Bytes 2 months ago after struggling with him for 7 months. Being a doctor myself, I had diagnosed his condition right at the onset and changed his vets thrice cause none of them listened to me or showed any interest in diagnosing him properly. What could've been treated with a relatively simple surgery ultimately claimed his life. I still haven't come to terms with my loss but often in my dreams I see him running free in a beautiful garden, no more pain & no more sorrows. And he seems very happy. That vision is what keeps me sane.
