GoodBye My Bubble Boy

Bruno you came in to this world so happy And we were so lucky to spend the first 2 years with you before you found your place at Karens. There were times I thought I was going to loose my mind with your actics, but only realize now how you getting me ready for the so called Czech dogs to come. You taught me a lot about yourself and what you had to offer. The very sweet side that you only showed me and no one else. And watching Cathy get angry cause you just want to sit on her head if she would only let you. You may have not been the boy that took after your father Ben but you sure had the sweet side of your mother Zerbal. Karen had big plans for you and was working to make you a theropy dog so that you could make others as happy as you had made me. I am so proud of you and wish you were still here for me to tell you 3 1/2 years old is way to short of a life and I look forward to one day being able to tell you how much I loved you and how proud you made me feel.

Last night we recieved a call 10 pm from our friend Karen saying she was taking him into the emergency vet as she thought he had bloat. At 11pm she called saying that everything looked good and that they were going to do surgery on him and they said they thought that she had caught it in time. At 3:30 am she called telling us the bad news that he had passed while they were closing him up. The only question was to the doctor there was why if she got him in by 11pm, why did they wait til 1:45 to do the surgery as this was a life threating problem. I think it was the lack of urgency that caused this poor bubble boy his life. Here are a few pictures of him. the first one is @ 2 years of age and the second is with his Dad Ben and brother Eyan At 6 months old

Re: GoodBye My Bubble Boy

I am so very sorry to hear of the loss of this sweet boy. My heart breaks for you and for Karen. While I have never lost one of my babies to bloat, I know how terrible it can be. Many hugs to your family and to Karen through this awful time.

Hi Chuck, I don't know if you remember, but we spoke through private message some time ago... my Lucy is one of Karen's dogs. So sorry to hear about Bruno I see Karen did a little memorial on her website. I'm sure Bruno's playing up in doggie heaven right now looking down.

So sorry for your loss. Bloat is such an insidious affliction. Prayers for you and Bruno, may he run free at the bridge.

Re: GoodBye My Bubble Boy

Chuck I am so sorry to hear this! Bloat, one of the most terrifying word a shepherd owner can hear.

Re: GoodBye My Bubble Boy

sorry to hear that Chuck. Are there grounds for vet malpractice in this case?
Years ago when one of my GSDs had bloat, I called the ER vet while still racing on the highway. By the time we arrived, there was a cart and a vet tech waiting by the entrance and she was wheeled into X-ray and surgery right away. They literally did not waste a second. I find it odd for a vet to wait 1 hour 45 minutes unless there was another animal already at the operating table and they only had one vet at that time.
