    Default Scooby still battling along - was "Not good news ... We're losing..."



    Hi All,

    Iam afraid this update is not good news , scooby has deterioated and we are struggling to keep fluid off his chest, his breathing is very laboured and he is panting such alot..... The hot weather is not helping him either but hes not very well....

    I was supposed to be celebrating my 40th bithday this weekend and was until scooby took a turn for the worse now all I can do is cry and worry how much time he has left...........

It was the most peaceful thing and I know my daughter will never regret being there with her. My heart is with you.
    Oh boy. That just made me tear up like crazy. Im so sorry for you and scooby. Big hugs....

    So sad to read this. My little cavalier was just officially diagnosed with dialed cardiomypathy (spelling?). The prognosis is grim, 6 months - a year eventually ending in heart faliure. At the end of the day, the only thing that matters is his happiness. You know your cavalier. He'll tell you when the time is right. Better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all.

    I'm so sorry Sharon - sadly too many of us have been through this awful time of having to know when to make that dreadful decision. It helped that you and your husband had discussed things, so you are both aware of each other's feelings.

    There's nothing I can say to comfort you - this is the Cavalier's only fault, they truly break your heart

    You are in our thoughts and we hope you will be back with us when you are able to post.

    I just wanted to say thank you to you all for your kind words and support.................

    We have spent the day together as a family with Scooby , we took him back to the vet this morning and she has given him another water injection to make him more comfortable. I sat my children down today (age 5 and 7) and explained what is going to happen to scooby in the next few days , that he is going to doggy heaven where he will not suffer anymore and will be able to run free and happy again. We have all cried but the most important thing is that we have spent the whole day cuddling scooby and giving him every treat in the world.

    Scooby is my best friend , he has especially helped me through some tough times with my health and been my constant companion , both me and my husband know we are doing the kindest thing for him , Iam going to call our vet in the morning and we are going to discuss what needs to be done , I looked into scooby's eyes today and I knew he has had enough , his breathing is so laboured and now the mediciation is failing him its just a matter of time and I feel we need to help him one last time.

    We have had scooby bless our lives for the last 9 years , I have loved every minute with him , hes my first dog and I couldn't ask for a better companion.

    Once we lose him we will need time to heal but I will keep in touch, you guys have given me and scooby such valuable support over the months , we are very grateful.

    Cheers
