Default Abby My Beloved Little Girl (IMHA) 11/7/12 RIP

Iím not sure how to do this or what to say or what to feel, I have had only two dog in my life and have never had to deal with the loss of one.
So like many IMHA stories my baby girl of 10 Ĺ years old was fine and dandy and acting normal Saturday night November 3rd 2010. Sunday morning I got up and did some work around the house and notice Abby was not eating or moving like normal. I I took her out potty and she did not seem all that interested in that when normally she would be excited. I told my wife that something was wrong and Abby was not feeling good she agreed and we took her to our vet Sunday at noon.
We were told that she has lost a lot of red blood cells and may have IMHA like most if the nasty stories she was at 18% Sunday dropped to 12% Monday morning went through 4 blood transfusions hung out at 14% till yesterday at noon she passed.
I know we did the best that we could and did everything that we could but it does not help knowing we lost our little girl. We donít have children we just spoiled out dogs and money was never an option when trying to get them healthy. But no amount of money would have helped her with the nasty diseases.
My wife and I are torn to pieces about the loss of or girl, we both know she is happy and healthy now but it does not replace the personality of who she was with us. I wanted to say good bye to her before she passed and sort of did but Iím ashamed that I was not there when she passed and it kills me that I was not there to let her go and to let her know how much I love her. I just hope she know that we didnít not mean for her to pass without us there by her side.
With all the name that you had sweetheart from Bun bun to abby girl to twinky I love you and will miss you

Don't worry, she knows you love her and no matter what you think, you were there while she passed away. Whether it be simply in her thoughts, you were there...

RIP Abby. You are much missed. Run free until we meet again...

I'm so sorry about your loss ... my last dog I lost was Abby too ... so your post brought up memories of my Abby ... it's hard, don't kid yourself, and give yourself time to grieve and work through all the memories.

Hugs and thoughts to you

We are very sorry about your loss. IMHA is a horrible disease and one that catches every dog owner totally by surprise. Our first dog Sheba developed IMHA when she was 11. We were lucky in that we managed to beat it into submission. We lost her later after she developed degenerative myleopathy. Please check out the website Meisha's Hope and specifically the link there about resources for those who have lost dogs to this terrible disease. It was our lifeline when dealing with the disease and the links proved most helpful when we lost Sheba and then when we lost our second dog Greta.

Pet Loss & Grief

Take care -

Rita and Mike

I'm so sorry for your loss. I went through the same thing with my Lexi a couple years ago and I still miss her. Hang in there, there will be better days. It just takes a while to get to them.
