I am very sorry for your loss.  I adopted my girl when she was one and lost her when she was 7...although she was older then Sam I feel like she passed way to young.  Its hard when you don't get all those years with them like you had planned.  Just know you gave him that loving home for 4 years! Some dogs never get that you two were lucky to have had each other.  Give yourself some time to heal we are all here for you.

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 lost 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.

Hi john

I am so sorry for your loss of ziggy, I was in tears as I read what you had wrote, I loved my sam like you loved ziggy, he was a special boy to me. When he was 12 weeks old his front legs had some issues he had started to stand on his tipple toes, I took him to the vets, their reply was take him back to where you got him from and get a refund, but I couldnt i a.ready fell in love with the little guy, anyway I took him to a specialist and he said that he seemed to be growing too fast, so he suggested to put him on adult food and slow his growth down. 4 weeks later went back to the specialist, they x-rayed him and his legs were back to normal, that's why he's my special boy.
He was a bouncy guy loved people, dogs and everything he came across. But 2 weeks ago today, he had eaten his breakfast went out to play as he usually did, I left to run errands for 2 hours came back home to find he didn't recognize me, there was drool all over the house, so I assumed at first that he'd thrown up, but that wasn't the case, he apparently was having a seizure which he'd never suffered with ever in his life, so this was out of the blue, my husband rushed home from work as I couldn't lift a 75 pound dog on my own, we managed to get him to vets, who put him on Valium to stop these seizures, but it wasn't working, his temperature had gone beyond normal, which is dangerous in dogs as it can cause brain damage, we were in there a few hours trying to get him stable, so I had to make that horrible decision to euthanize him, that was the worst decision I had ever had to make, and I never wanna do it again. Two days later I received his ashes, he now sits in front of the fire place as that was his favorite place.

Take care Nd just know everyone is here for you, sorry again for the loss of ziggy.

Karen
