Remington gone to soon. Mesenteric Torsion

My family is completely heart broken. Remington was 8 months old and my best friend. Yesterday morning he woke me up in a odd way. He has never in 5 months climb in bed and nudge me awake.....that should of been my first sign of a problem.

Within 10 hours he had passed away.

My fiancé called and said, Remington went under the porch and wouldn't come out. My fiancé being 9 months pregnant wasn't goin after him. I came home from work at 3 and I got him out. But he wasn't responsive or even moving for that matter.

I'm a big tattooed oil rig worker very thick skinned. Here I am in my back yard holding Remington balling my eyes out. By 3:30 I was pulling into the vet.

The vet staff promptly took him into a room. Five minutes later the vet came in to speak with me. And my son and fiancé just arrived in the vets office. Within another 5min Remington went into massive shock and violent convusions and passed.

He waited till everyone was there to see him....

It's completly unfair and so frustrating that he had to go. My fiancé and son are so upset.
my older Shepard won't eat. I don't wish this kind of pain on anyone.

After his passing the vet called me to notify me that Mesenteric Torsion was the cause.
Almost alway a bad ending he explained.
