Now its my turn to say my German Shepherd of 12 yrs had passed on :(:(:(:( on Jan 14,2014.Because the hip dysplasia and arthritis took over his body,the Vet and the wonderfull techs had to come here to our home to put him down,I tried to be strong,as my hubby and son too,but how can you,your best friend is never coming back,though its so hard,he's out of pain he was such a tough guy to the end.Good bye Dalebo,our loyal companion,with many tears we miss you sweet guy,|:| You were our Best friend,and will never be forgotten we LOVE YOU ALWAYS.Run now with no pain and we will see u again..Mom and Dad:xo:his
PS
Could not post this in the "Good Bye" Forum..and thanks to all his friends.

My Dalebo my life,my love,yes he's a dog,but he's my dog,been there for me since a puppy,now its his turn to be pampered and PRAYED FOR.
Last week it was my dog this week its me.
They told us our shepherd my Dear Dalebo has severe hip dyplasia(SP in both hips,dont know how long it will be before he cant walk,do we want him in a wheel walker with all the pain,or put him down,cuz the pain will get so unbearable,it will be awfull to see him in the end stages...cried all week..Only animal lovers will understand that they r a part of the family,only animal lovers will know how sad new's brings u to your knees when told bad news about your best friend,the love of your life is sick"sigh" of tears.

Vet put him on Rimidol/and pain pill tramdol for pain at nite,no lying on the floor without a heat blanket,a bed for winter.Anything for my Prince,said for him to lose weight we did help,5 more to go,Vet was proud,thought that as humans we can control that.Walking a little day to keep from stiffness,I cant die to this stupid spine surgery and foot,and to think my goal after recovery is to walk my dog again..I swear I will..

I have been nursing a bad foot since my 2-last spine surgery,well today the doc thinks I have a ripped or almost ripped achilles tendon,have MRI Friday/9/17
I asked God for strenght I know it can be worse,though I want this to end,I had 2 spine surgery's this year NO MORE SURGERIES,if its torn they have to do surgery..Grrrrr.
Though i have many things to be thankfull for,somedays u just have pity parties..its been a pity part all month with my Dalebo.
I love him more then life itself,hes been there with all my spine surgeries stuck to my hip,even herd's me if I topple,I use a roller walker.
I never had a dog before,what a Blessed event when he came home to live at 7-8 months.
Please say a Prayer for him..
Been a Dogster Fan since this site started,watched many animals come and go..
I need your strenght PLEASEE...to get thru this and make the right desicions..
Hugs to all.
Hugs
Gail

 

WERE BACK AGAIN A LONG JOURNEY

Just to try to make a long story short most of you know my human mom has had spinal issues and finally in Oct/09 when I could no longer walk at work i had surgery a week later with a collapsed spine,from the thoratic to lumbar.

It was so scary I did not have time to think,all I remember is my spine doc and others saying I may not walk again...meaning not able to walk my dog???or work.

I had my surgery it went on for 10 hrs as they built it back up with rods and screws and used donated bone to fuse it,I had 7 levels done,and mt scolisois fixed,where they had to break my vertabraes,as doc said they sawed me in half...shivers..

I woke up in ICU with the worse pain ever it felt like someone put swords in my spine,I screamed for 2 days..

Anyway I recovered at home with VNA visiting me and Physical Therapy helping to walk again.I did not want to go to a rehab place for 6 weeks missing my family and my doggies..especially dale who was at my side every second..loving me,licking me and trying to get in bed with me,which he has never done.

He was my Inspiration to go on and get better...then in Febuary getting out of my lift chair,I heard a pop it felt like I was shot,and it felt painfull.
Of coarse my own spine doc was out of town so paged his assc.who said if it got worse to go to ER...well i was not going back to the hosp unless I was dying..LOL

When I had my appt with my spine doc they did there usual xray and doc came in with a somber look..I knew something was wrong...but never thought my titatium rod broke!!

He said I need to have surgery all over again..I felt like it was a bad nightmare..but it wasnt.

So this past March i had the surgey to remove the rod and redone the fusion..in ICU and screaming with pain all over again.

The good news now is I am recovering..not allowed to do anything this time except walk,walk walk..Not Physicall therapy,no bending,lifting,twisting,and DRIVNG!!!!
I have not drove or worked since last Oct 7th 09...I hate not having my dependence.

I would be lost without my hubby and family,but who is here 24/7 my dog..my lovable angel dog,who listens to me cry,laugh at bouncing around with my wheel walker,each of getting caught in door ways..its quite comical..
No one can ever tell me a dog is not good for the soul when your sick or disabled..that I am now cant go back to work ever,i have learned after working 30 yrs to adjust,especially feeling better..

Ok thats my book or Diary for the day.

Thank you all for our WELCOME BACK..
yOUR SO encouraging u will never know how much.
Much love to all.
Never take life for granted..I know many here have been thru worse,so I too commend you.

[ Leave A Comment ]

Starting on Thursday the 7th the snow started here with weather warning's..
Yeah we'll see it then we'll beleive it.

Yup it came down slow,but steady,about an inch an hour,then they said it would not stop till Friday,nope F
Mom let me out with regrets,cuz I looked like a Polar Bear when I came in.and it was only minutes I was out
She and Dad keep these heavy beach towel's on the mudroom for when I come in,usually hanging from heater...ahhhhhhhhhhh...and I leave it on like a coat,feel's so good.

Well Friday came and it was still dumping snow,school's closed.So I watched the kids sledding as I ran the fence with them hoping I could play...

Anyway is was suppose to stop yesterday,so dad (THOUGHT) he was done snow blowing.........NOPE...dad took me out this Saturday morning,and the door would not open...eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek and I had to step in it Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...

Oh another fun day for me running thru drift's as Dad is saying all these NAUGHTY word's...BOL...Got to love him.

If we get more then these 10-12 inches,my belly will be dragging and making my own snow paths...BOL

Your friend Dalebo

THIS IS THE BEST CHRISTMAS GIFT A HUMAN COULD EVER WANT..

THANKYOU DALEBO...I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART.

HERE IS A POEM I WANTED TO SHARE IF U DID NOT FALL ASLEEP YET..LOL

I DID NOT WRITE IT.

"All the children's' eyes are smiling,
Christmas Eve is finally here!
Outside my window snow is falling,
This brightest evening of the year.

Children dream of Christmas morning;
Santa Claus is on the way!
And I, a father, watch it snowing,
And drift back to another day

When I, a child, watched in wonder
As Christmas filled the world with joy.
I see myself, in faded shadows,
Long ago a little boy.

The house is quiet, dark, and still,
And I can't sleep although I'm trying.
The children's dreams are filled with visions
Of Santa Claus and reindeer flying.

In the silence of this evening
I watch the winter snowflakes fall;
Time is such a precious gift...
And love the greatest gift of all."
