I saw your Post and had to write. I had a similar situation and my wife and I are heartbroken. Our 5 year old Boxer ( Ziggy ) had heart disease and although he had a disease he would eventually die from, he was on medicine twice a day and was doing great. Two weeks before Christmas Ziggy developed a cough. So on 12-23 i took him to the vet and they checked out his lungs, and they had some congestion. They said Ziggy should stay there for 48 hours for a breathing treatment to clear his lungs out. Anyway we left Ziggy at 10pm and while i was talking to the cardiologist my wife went back to his room and kissed him nite nite. I didn't get a chance cause i was talking to the doctor and we were coming in at 9am to see Ziggy anyway. That next morning at 605 am the vet called and told us Ziggy had a heart attack and passed away at 545 am. I was DEVASTATED !! I screamed so loud and cried and cried and cried. Its been over a month and I still cant eat. I miss my boy so much. he died all alone !!! He was never not with us. He loved us so much and loved being with us and his brother boxer Joe. My wife say's he died of anxiety and a broken heart from being alone. I cant stand to think that he died all alone because he missed us so much, I cant take this anymore. I miss him too much and I keep crying all day , every day. Ziggy was my man !!1 I love him so much and he was a special dog. He was a once in a lifetime dog. I still look for him, I think i hear him cry, or hear him sneezing. I miss him so damn much and its not fair my baby died at 5 years old. I almost want to die also so i can be with him. If I knew for 100% there was a heaven and Ziggy was there I would feel better. But what if this is it and he is nothing more then a box of dirt now. i cant think of that. I wish he could show me he was safe. I'm so sad and depressed. I just want to see him or know he is doing Ok. I am in the same boat as you. My baby died alone. What do we do from here on out > ? I cant go on like this I am too sad. I am so sorry for your loss and I will pray for you that you cope better then me, but it seems you are a lot like me so I am sorry !
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.
