i lost sassy my whippet mix dec 26 and before i could catch my breath i lost nipper my jack russell terrier mix on jan 6 sassy suffered all night christmas night and when i got a ride to the vet we had to wait for the roads to be cleared she perked up some in the car raising her head to see out i was second guessing myself but she was so weak she could barely stand the vet listened and reassured me i was doing the right thing because the fluid building up was only going to get worse and she was nearly 14 so i held her for the final time she wasnt ready to let go i guess like i thought she was because the vet had to give her extra meds as i reassured her nipper got bad quick starting with a cough that wouldnt stop and still he ate well that night but as the night went on his breathing got worse and gurgling and then came the blood and lots of it he laid down on the floor and vomited up so much blood i wrapped the blanket up around him and called to find a ride and someone to help me

Oh, God, Judy, I'm so sorry! Either loss would have been devastating, and I can barely imagine how traumatic it has to have been to lose Sassy and Nipper so close together. We're here for you and will help as much as we can. I'm in our chat room as I type this, with a few other members who are also so very sorry to hear about your losses. I'm going to post the links to the chat room and our board and our Facebook page (in case you're on Facebook) in a separate message here, right after I post this -- the only way I have to post a direct reply to you here doesn't let me turn those into clickable links. I'm going to email you as well -- I'm glad you left an email address so I can see that (no one else can see it) and reply to you that way. But I hope you'll register for our board, since our other members can't post direct replies to guestbook messages, and they'd like to respond.

I'm so sorry, Beverly! Rascal must have been such a darling -- Jack Russell terriers are such sweet, lovable, playful dogs. And it hurts worse to lose a pet on or just before the holidays.
We'll be happy to help you in our chat room -- http://www.lighthouseport.com/chat.html -- or you could register and post at Lighthouse Beacon -- http://z7.invisionfree.com/Lighthouse_Beacon/ -- where the chat room topic has that link and a link to a second chat room. We can help you on our Facebook page, too -- http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Lighthouse-for-pet-loss-grief-support/86557841041 -- if you have a Facebook account.
We're here for you and would like to help.
Welcome to the Lighthouse guestbook!
I'm Cindy Morgan (SinbadsMom), admin of the Lighthouse pet loss grief support site.
We have two message boards, The Lighthouse (our larger, original board, with over 100,000 messages) and Lighthouse Beacon, with chat rooms on both boards (see our website and blog, The Lighthouse By Rainbow Bridge, for more information).
We hope you'll find our site helpful and comforting.
This guestbook has been created to allow you to leave comments. As explained at the top of the page, your email address won't be displayed when your message is published here. And if you'd like your message kept completely private, just let me know -- I review all messages before they're published.
If your comments are relevant to any of our members in particular -- if, for instance, you're commenting on a memorial page (please mention which one) -- I'll be happy to let that member know, so they can send you an email reply or send me a reply to post here. This guestbook is for them, too.
Thanks for visiting our site and guestbook!
