Rikky is at peace

Our Rikky passed peacefully in my arms today. My husband and I had to make the hardest decision we'Ve ever made. Rikky showed little improvement since surgery. There were days of hope bug more days of pain and discomfort. In the last week he lost use of back legs and the vet didn't have any hope he would recover. We we up until 4:30 am with him in so much pain. He couldn't use the bathroom. Unfortunately, the second opinion as to what was definitely wrong with him has not come in yet. There was a problem that caused it to have to be resubmitted. The not knowing what this disease/cancer was that could ravage a 18 month old Havanese like this is so hard to take. He was such a active puppy for the first year of his life. The vet told us today what ever was happening with him was rare and she had never known of a case like this to happen to a havanese she did say i should make his breeder aware although there is no diagnosis as to it being genetic as of yet Thank all of you for your prayers and support. I have received comfort from your messages. We are all hurting today, even our other pets sense the loss.

Having recently had to make the same difficult decision with our Cairn/Jack Russell, Stella, you have my utmost sympathy. That space in your heart will always be Rikky's alone. So, so sorry.

So Sad For You

Having been there, we can only cry with you. The only way out is through and we cry until there are no more tears.
