Switching off

Today, our eleven year-old Chihuahua died in his sleep. Yesterday, the vet sent him home with us, saying he had mild congestion, and should be fine in a week. FML

it might have been something else that ended up taking him, and 11 years for a Chihuahua is pretty good depending on the lifestyle, So sorry for you loss of him though. i love my female Chihuahua immensely as she has to be the quietest ever born. I lost my first chihuahua in 2019, on my 40th birthday she was just a couple months short of her 13th birthday. Ended up being kidney failure as she liked to eat a lot of human food. My new Chihuahua who is now 4 don't get to eat human food as much as my last and she gets way more exercise than her older sister did.

It’s possible that your dog’s death was coincidentally the day after your vet said nothing was wrong. Nothing lives forever, and maybe it was just your dog’s time. That doesn’t make the pain any less, though, and I’m sorry.

Veterans are not really good at diagnosing dog diseases. They are inexpensive and flexible, though. Just remember: veterinarian is the vet you need.

What a kind sentiment to offer someone who is grieving. It’s almost at if the same abbreviation can be used for different words, and as if context matters to reading comprehension. On a lighter post, you might have been clever. On my dead dog who we’d had for nearly half our lives ? Not cute. Nor kind. Read the room, and learn a little empathy.

Remember my comment a few FMLs up? This is the stuff I'm referring to man! You clearly haven't had pets before, the death of a pet is the death of a family member! Why don't you know that?
