Hey guys I just wanted to let you all know that I lost Pinky this morning. During the night Monday night she woke me up crying out and whimpering. She had lost all control of her bowels and was barely able to walk. I called her vet at 3 am and ended up taking her into his office at 5 am after running several tests we knew right away that she had kidney and liver failure. My family and I spent most of the day yesterday with her praying and hoping for a miracle. But sadly Pinky's condition worsened and I had to make the decision to have her PTS. It was the hardest decision I have ever had to make. But I know in my heart that Pinky was happy and she knew how much she was loved. My last and final gesture to her was hand to cheek which mean kiss. She kissed me and my husband good-bye and silently drifted away. For those of you who read this and didn't know of Pinky she was deaf but even with her disability she was still an amazing smart, sweet & loving dog. Pinky was a true ambassador of the breed. My heart is broken and I am finding Pinky's passing very hard to handle. I believe strongly in God and I know all things happen for a reason but how do you explain to three heart broken children how or why God took Pinky so soon after losing Izzy? I can't stop crying even my husband needed time alone today to cry and grieve for Pinky. Most of you all know how special Pinky was to me she was a very special dog. We buried Pinky in our yard this afternoon next to Izzy. Thankfully it was a bright sun shiny day. Pinkys bells which she wore around her neck when she was a baby (used to locate her if she were to wonder off) are now hanging on my office door as a constant reminder of the love and happiness she brought into my life. Every year my husband and I make a donation to the "Tree of Life Foundation" a charity which caters to underprivileged children in our area so this year we are making the donation in Pinky's name. Pinky was dearly loved and will be greatly missed.
Thanks all for the kind words. Heffanator Pinky has been sick for sometime she had advanced heart disease mitral valve failure. Due to her lowered immune system she had several infections which caused the liver and kidney problems. We have known for sometime that Pinky was ill but we thought we had more time with her.
GinaH, I am so sorry to hear about Pinky, and especially at this time of the year, I cried and so did my little girl Jessica she loves looking at your dogs pictures and being that your dog and our dog are pittys specially hit her even harder, so god be with you and your family in this truly sad time.
Oh my gosh. Gina, I'm so sorry. Gosh I'm so sorry to hear that, it almost made me cry. You are in my thoughts. I know my kind words don't help with your loss. Wow, I'm so sorry Gina, that was so sudden. Oh, I see. Sorry, I've never been in your shoes. I'm so sorry for you and your family. I'm sorry about Pinky. Gina, I'm so sorry, especially at this time of the year, I almost cried reading your story, even though I don't like Pit Bulls.
OMG! I am so sorry Gina. I am in total shock this morning. It is such a hard thing to go through I know, and you really did not need this now. Great, now im crying too. Please extend my thoughts to your family.
Hi Gina - I am so sorry for your loss. I looked at her pictures and she was so sweet. My thoughts are with you at this time. Hold onto her memories and take comfort in the fact that she no longer has to suffer. God bless.
OH Gina I am so sorry. I know that this was a hard fight for you and Pinky. Just know she is in a better place now and will be very happy to see you when you join her one day. Keep your head up. I know it has to be a very hard time for you and your family.
Gina, I feel for you and your family. She was a beautiful girl and a big part of your life. I lost 2 of mine this year and it just breaks your heart. One girl, Beannie, to kidney failure and my Butters, he had arthritis and his joints were fused together. I too, have a small boy and it is very difficult to handle this yourself, much less explain it to a child. But, it is all a part of life and we love our animals (hate to use that word) so much, when they leave us we grieve. But, your wonderful donation will let her memory live on and make a difference. I would like for you to read my tribute pages, sometimes it helps to know others have felt your loss. www.linnchancsp.com My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
