My Dog Taylor

I just wanted to tell everyone what happened with Taylor today. My mom had to go pick her up at 7AM this morning from the emergency vet and wait until 9AM to take her to the regular vet. I just laid her in my bed and snuggled with her. I knew right then that it was her time and Taylor wanted to go. At 9 my mom and I took her to the vet and asked about the oral lasiks but the vet said they wouldn’t help and within a couple of days she would be as bad as before. I made the decision to let her go in peace. She was just so exhausted and she couldn’t even hold her head up. We called my fiance to come and then we let her go. She left us within seconds of the injection so she was barely hanging on. It hurts a lot but I know we did the right thing for her.
Thank you everyone for you thoughts and prayers. This has been the hardest thing I have ever had to do and I will need time to grieve. I will try to come back to the blogging world a week from now but I can’t make guarantees because I am in the middle of midterms.

Tonight I am going to make a special layout dedicated to her life.

  1. Sam,

    I am so sorry for your loss. I just read your blog for the first time this week and realized she was gone. You and your family and the other pups are in my thoughts and prayers…

  2. I’m sorry to hear about what happened. A few years ago we had to put down my dog (after having him for 13 years – he was 1 when we got him from a shelter, abused)because his health just deteriorated, in what seemed like, overnight. Losing a dog is really like losing a sibling or a child. I hope you make it through your midterms… just keep thinking about all the good times you two had together.

  3. Samantha,
    I had left a reply a few days ago on VIntage Plum when you first found out that Taylor was sick, and I just want you to know that you are still in my thoughts and prayers. This is never an easy thing, and I know you must be hurting a lot. God Bless!

  4. Ohhh Samantha. I do feel for you. It is one of the hardest things in the world to do. But, it was the right thing. Sending you love and hugs …

  6. I’m so sorry about Taylor. You made the best decision for Taylor. Sometimes you just have to let go. Take care of yourself and good luck on your midterms. We’ll see you when you get back on here.

  7. Oh Samantha – I am so sorry to hear about Taylor. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Even to this day I think of our Sandy Girl and it brings tears to my eye. When got her at the age of one and she was the same age as Taylor when she went into congenital heart failure. One of the hardest decisions we had to make was whether to place her on medication, which the vet told us would only keep her comfortable but not pain free or to let the vet help her go before it started to get too bad for her – I am very proud of you for making that difficult decision. Again, I am thinking of you and passing on {hugs} from me to you.
