Been there twice with hemangio.. Both times, my girls were sick for a short time and for that, I am grateful. My first girl had cardiac hemangio and she WAS my heart dog. I think I cried from her passing every day for one year. I could barely get out of bed to go to work. Hindsight 20/20 I was probably clinically depressed. My second, girl, Laney, had an episode of collapse one weekend which made me freak out... She recovered and was going in for an ultrasound on 10/13/2006. I brought all of the dogs with me for moral support for her. She jumped out of my car as she had hundreds of times previously. Her spleen let go and she was recumbent in the parking lot... I carried her in and the diagnosis was splenic hemangiosarcoma.

So,sorry for your loss....

Thank you all for your kind words and support. This has been a very difficult week - DH and I were just sitting (with Seger between us) talking about this. I look at Oakley's picture first thing in the morning and last thing at night - and numerous times throughout the day - it gives me a sense of peace that he is here in spirit with me. We have been trying to focus on the good times - and there were so many. Everything about Oakley was comedic I pray I never forget the softness of his ears or the feel of my fingers in his thick ruff. I miss his big sloppy kisses ... but I swear I will never forget. I am grateful he went peacefully with dad and I holding him tight - I know he knew we were with him until the end. One day at a time .....

I am very sorry for your loss of Oakley, reading your post and crying. You will never forget I know that, after 18 and half months I remember every single bump and mark on my Buddy's body, the way he walked, the way he smiled and run toward me, the way he looked at me and used to touch me with his paws. You will never forget, it is just too much love to let memories to fade away. Hugs.

I think when we lose them so fast we truly are in shock, and the whole situation seems unreal. You are always waiting for them to come running in the room, listening for them,.... in limbo. You do get through it one day at a time, and it does help to keep talking about how you feel, cry all you want, tell their funny stories, etc.. It's how we have to grieve to come to terms with it. It was just a year on the 26th for losing our Buddy, and it still hurts. We still miss him, and always will. Love always endures, and we will feel that for them forever. Praying for you and your family.

I am sorry to share, I lost Blake many months ago yet I still tell folks I have 5 dogs. I miss him with all my being. You would think the other 4 would keep me busy enough to maybe go a day without thinking about him, but again, I am sorry to say; no. In our hands for a while; in our heart forever.

I feel your pain! It's so hard to be left here without their physicial and emotional prescence. I don't have any words of wisdom for you to get through this time. It's been 5 months without my boy Max. Some days it is one minute at a time. Wish there were a "magic bullet"! Keeping you and your family in our thoughts at this painful time!

It's definitely one day at a time. We lost Fozzie to Hemangio almost 5 months ago, and yet it still feels like yesterday. I'm still having good and bad days-yesterday was a bad one. The pain does lessen over time, but give yourself time to grieve. Definitely give Seger some extra loving..

Your gift Oakley

Carol,
Im so sorry for your loss of your special friend Oakley.
We understand what you must be going through.
Our 12 year old Boomer died in my arms 4 weeks ago.
I've found healing through my tears and supporting consolation from reading GRF. Still, it's a process. A grueling one isn't it ?
Knowing of so many others experiencing similar losses can help.
You love Oakley dearly and it hurts bad. I understand.
Boomer's Dad,
Sloan

I dealt with the same illness with 2 of my dogs. They went to the bridge the same day within 24 hours of showing any symptoms, no real chance to say goodbye.

I also found that at about a week later, they raw pain hits hard again. Time is really the only thing that helps. I am also the type that needs to fill that emptiness by giving another pet a home as soon as possible, but everybody is different.

Hugs!!!!
