My dog Paco is 1-year old. This last Saturday he had a grand mal seizure. He has never had any heath issues of any kind as long as I've owned him. That same day within about 2 hrs. he had several…Continue
It is much worse when you have another dog who was attached. I know that a couple who lived behind me had two French Bulldogs and they lost the sister. The Vet told them that they would have to let the male see the body before he would settle. It is such a pity that it would not be possible for Micah. She sounds like she needs even more comforting. I was grateful that when I lost my previous two that the youngest went first, I know that sounds crazy but he had never been alone. We had the oldest one for about a year on his own and though when Angus had his stroke and then we had to put him down. He had no lasting problems, in his case he relaxed because the young one was always fighting.
Give Micah a big cuddle from me. Take care of yourself.
I'm just seeing this and i am so very sorry you are in our thoughts and prayers as we are here if you need a shoulder.I know this is very difficult as i lost my two not long ago and that pain is still very much real,i don't think it ever really stops hurting you just learn to go on.In time you may want to share your life with another and we do have so many in our rescues maybe you will find that pug that will rescue you right back.Please take care and know we are here for you.
Hi Aaron, how are you today, hope that some of the blackness is lifting a little. I know you will have good days and bad days. It is awful to lose a dog as young as Paco but none of us come with either a guarantee or knowledge as to how this life will work out. I was one of the lucky ones, my first Pug was with us fill two months short of his fifteenth birthday, his nephew made it to just ten and and a half, which was sad because we lost the young one before the old boy, but the old boy never pined which was good. I hope you will consider having another Pug in future but I also know everyone takes their own time. We took three years before we got Hektor, basically we needed to grieve for Henry and we needed to be able to care for another puppy. I know in the US there are lots of Pugs in Rescue, we do not have as yet a similar problem, but as the number of Pugs increase in the general population I can see that changing. Right now buying a Puppy is the normal way here, but I know that when the time comes as it always does and we can rehome some elderly Pug, we probably will because we too are getting that way and could not take on another young pup. Take Care and have a lovely weekend, we are all thinking of you. Helena and Hektor
Welcome to the Famly Aaron and Paco, I see you are having problems with epilepsy? The person to contact here is Pugman, He had Walker who suffered,if that is the word from this for much of his long and productive life, and believe me he was productive. He will be able to put your mind at ease with regard to this. It is a case of getting it under control and though a very frightening thing to witness often does not affect the victim too badly, provided this is epilepsy. Hope this helps. Helena and Hektor
