My Mom's dog


Recommended Posts

One of the pomeranian dogs that I inherited from my parents died a little while ago. She was 11.5 years old, had a heart murmur and also a collapsing trachea. She died rather quickly while eating. She had been coughing for a few months and I knew it was coming, but it's still a shock.

She was such a special girl. Really didn't do anything wrong. My Mom was so happy when she got her. It was the dog she had always wanted. Such a happy, easy going, gentle dog. I will miss her.

Leslie, I'm so sorry. My mom had pomeranians too. She loved the two dogs she had.

Several months after my dad was diagnosed with LC, his lost-long Navy buddy from Vietnam (they reunited after I did an internet search for him) gave him a little pekinese puppy as a gift.

Daddy loved that little pup and it layed with him after every chemo and basically 24/7 when he was home and so fatigued. I even snuck that puppy into the hospital and it slept with daddy there until he passed away.

A few weeks later that little puppy just died. It broke my heart - there was just no reason for that to happen. It was my mom who said to me that maybe my dad just wanted his puppy with him. And that thought gave us some comfort.

Maybe you can find comfort in knowing that your mom and her dog are together again.

I'm so sorry to hear about your dog. I know that pets are just as much a part of the family as people are, and it is so hard to lose them. It is especially hard as it was a connection to your mom, too.

Thinking of you,

Thank you all for such kind words. I've been having a hard time lately anyway, and now to lose Sioux-Zee is doubly hard. I am holding on to the idea of Mom and Dad waiting for her at the Rainbow Bridge...thank you Susan for that image.

I decided to bury her in the backyard where she liked to nap in the sun. I will get a headstone for her and plant some flowers later.
