I am so sorry about the loss of your Sam. I also lost my Boxer who was 5 years old on Christmas Eve. It was the WORST day of my life. My Ziggy was my everything, Here is what happened.
BTW what happened to Sam ? He was beautiful Merry Christmas to all my friends and Family. Today I lost my best friend, my everything, and it is the hardest thing I have ever dealt with in life. I have los t family members before but losing Ziggy was so much more. He was my world, and I loved him more then anyone in my family and thats the truth. He was my son, and he relied on daddy to keep him safe. I feel as if I let him down. The one night I left him at the hospital to try to help him heal, the only night he has EVER spent alone without me in his entire life, he passes away from a major heart attack. I feel as if he gave up because he though daddy abandoned him. I was too busy talking with the cardiologist trying to find out as much as I could to help him, and while my wife was saying goodnight to Ziggy and giving his kisses they took him back to his room to sleep. I assumed I would go see him at 9am this morning, but we received the call at 6:05 am that after he went outside to pee he fell over and succumbed to a massive heart attack. They tried CPR ,but he was gone. I never said nite nite to my baby , and i never told him daddy loves you. He was only 5 years old and he is gone Anyone that knows me knows that I loved Ziggy more then any person, or anything there is. I spent every minute with him and I feel like he relied on me, and I let him down. I'm so sorry Ziggy Pop , daddy didn't leave you there because he gave up and stopped loving you. Daddy just wanted you to get better and be a happy Puppy for Christmas, so you could open your presents and get a new bone, and a soccer ball that you wanted. I regret leaving you there, and second guess myself for the rest of my life because as hard as I tried to save you, I feel as if in the end I am the one who let you down and you died because I wasn't there for you. I am so so sorry Pop. Now my faith is being tested in a big way. I feel as if God let me down also. I strive so much to be a good person, and do the right thing and help others. I know deep down I am kind hearted and love everyone. I try to help people and share anything I can. My puppy didnt deserve to die in this manner. With that said God Bless everyone, and I hope you have a better Holiday then me. Im lucky to be alive right now because this morning after getting the news I really started second guessing myself for letting Ziggy down, and him dying as a result of me not being there for him. I should have slept in the kennel with him
Lost My Beloved Ziggy ( Reverse Brindle Boxer ) to a heart attack on Christmas Eve
12-24-2014. The worst day of my life. I miss him beyond what words can reply. He was my EVERYTHING. My soulmate, and I am Devastated. He battled Boxer Dilated Cardiomyopathy and Congestive Heart Failure for 2 years. I really thought he was doing well, and then Bang, He's gone... Life will never be the same. Im hurting bad inside and really could use any emotional support offered. I miss him so so much.
