RAINBOW BRIDGE

Monday 8:13pm our beloved OBI-WAN left for the rainbow bridge........we are devastated!!!

OBI's last photo taken Saturday, 3:45pm and he was feeling fine, everything changed Monday morning. It is thought to be Von Willebrand Disease which can surface at any age, causing the blood to thin and internal bleeding. His Vet gave him Vit K in his IV 8:30 am and his gums turned pink, then they brought in a Great Dane which donated blood to build him up again. He was feeling better till around 7:30 pm when everything went down hill fast. His heart and lungs stopped, he was gone........Everyone there was very upset and could not believe what happen. More tests are expected for a positive diagnosis.......Thank all of you for your prayers, we will return in a few days after some rest........this has been a nightmare, OBI was only 4 yrs old! We are all in shock................

Obi, until we meet at the Bridge.....

CCL Wendy said...

Oh no! I am so very, very sorry for your loss. It is so devastating to lose a pet, but especially one that was seemingly in good health, and so young at that.

There is nothing that can stem your grief, but just know that you gave Obi the best life possible while he was here with you, and that he is well and happy on the Rainbow Bridge now.

That doesn't help the hole that has been left in your heart -- only time will heal that wound. We hope the happy memories of him will comfort you now and always.

Tuck said...

I'm so sorry to hear about OBI. I was purring that he would get better. He was so young, but I'm sure he brought you so much love and joy in his short time with you. Purrs and prayers for you...

There are no words that I can give you to to ease your pain. I know because I've felt your pain and will again because I can't live in a home without animals and feel alive.

My heart is literally breaking for you. I lost my service/therapy dog, Starr, at the age of three to acute pancreatitis. I was devastated and still, after five years, feel the pain.

My heart is wrapped around yours in sorrow. I am so very sorry, so very sorry.

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

how heartbreaking. He was so lucky to have you --what a fantastic 4 years you gave him--that is all that matters to him. even though it is hard, "time" is a problem for humans, not dogs. He will always be with you --right there in your heart--not even the power of death will stop him from wagging a grateful tail. love janice, saig,e guinness

OBI was a stunning beast. We are so very sorry for your loss. We hope all of the lovely critters in your home bring you some comfort in OBI's passing.

We're new visitors to your blog, but we're willing to bet that OBI got more love in his 4 years than most canines get in a lifetime. He was a very lucky boy to have lived his days with you.
