Raider

My sweet Raider has gone to the bridge. He would have turned 14 1/2 this month on the 26 and up until yesterday was doing wonderfully, even had a senior blood panel a couple weeks ago that was perfect. He woke up yesterday, went out, ate his breakfast and came back in. Around 6:30 he had what looked to be a seizure, I comforted him, and he seemed okay but it left him unable to get up. I planned on calling my vet at 8 and taking him in, managed to get him up around ten minutes to 8 to go out but he began gasping so we got him in the car and I took him directly to my vets just 5 minutes away. After examining him, vet suggested it was time, and I agreed. His eyes had the look that told me he was ready so I cradled his head and crooned to him I loved him and he was the best dog in the whole world and we let him go. He was the sweetest dog and never met a dog or human he didn't love and who didn't love him. I will miss him, but feel very blessed to have had him in our life for as long as we did.

I'm so sorry to hear about you losing sweet Raider. We lost our girl at 14 in a very similar way. You know the time is close but it is still so heartbreaking. Our hearts go out to you and your family.

I am so very sorry for the loss of your precious Raider, 14 1/2 is a great age but I know it's still so hard. Would you like me to add him to The Rainbow Bridge List?.
