    Default My darling Brandy

    Many of you will remember about a month and a half ago I brought home a beautiful Collie(http://board.cavaliertalk.com/showthread.php?t=23117) name Brandy - She was one of the most special dogs I've ever had the joy of living with! Sadly, 2 weeks ago Wednesday tragidy hit, and took my beautiful Brandy with it. I had finally got Brandy's coat unmatted and it was starting to look good again, she was able to get up and down without extreme pain, and was really starting to do well. The night before she passed away, for the first time I saw her actually run around the yard playing with one of my Italian Greyhounds, I'll never forget the joy of seeing Brandy play freely without pain at last!

    Sadly, the next morning I woke up to a devistating site - My beautiful Brandy had had a stroke during the night, she was totally unresponsive, had no reflexes, she couldn't even hold her head up. I rushed her to the vet, we tried fluids and steroids, I kept praying for a miracle, but sadly, despite being given valium, Brandy started to seizure, and I knew that even if I could save her life, she's never have a quality of life again - I knew the stroke had just done to much damage, so I had to make the hard decision to have her put down. It's been almost 2 weeks, and still my heart is breaking! I knew she was old and our time would be short, but I was expecting much longer!!!

    Run free my beautiful girl! You'll live on in my heart forever!!!

    I am so sorry to hear this. I remember your pride and joy when you presented Brandy, and she had something very special about her. My eyes are filled with tears for you, and I send you all the warmest hugs and thoghts.

    Thank you! And yes, Brandy was something special! I've never had such an instant connection with a dog - She was one of a kind, in the short time she was with me she added so much! My whole house feels empty without her!

    oh I am so sorry to hear about Brandy That is just heart breaking. It's wonderful to know that she was running around in the yard the night before she stroked though I'm sure that sight alone made everything worth it. Run free at the bridge beautiful Brandy!

    That is so sad! But it sounds like she had one last glorious romp before she passed. I bet she felt like she was already in heaven when you took her in. Brings tears to my eyes!

    I'm so sorry for your loss and like Sara said, it's good to know she was able to run around and have some fun on her last evening. It will take quite some time I'm sure to get used to her not being around, I'm sure your other dogs will be a comfort to you.

    Such a short time you had with her and she was so lovely. I'm glad you gave her the love she had been missing and how much it must have comforted her.
