    Unhappy We lost one of our dogs

    I'm sitting here balling because I started thinking about Gucci...

    Gucci was Force's Mom, Force is our other dog, they are both Akita's...

    We got Force as a puppy (he's a little over two years old now) and a few months latter the Breeder called us and said she was retiring Gucci...

    Gucci was a Show Champion and then she retired from showing and started breeding...
    The trainer really liked us and wanted Gucci to retire all together with us, of course we said yes...
    Gucci was only 6 years old...

    We had her for a little under two years and over the winter she started having trouble getting up, than about two months ago she developed a huge growth on her right front shoulder... The doctors couldn't figure out what was wrong with blood tests so they had to get a section of the growth to test it, well it came back as Blood Cancer... Now because of the type of cancer it was the cut wouldn't heel and see would just touch something and it would start bleeding all over again...

    So we went from a happy dog to a very sick dog within a matter of a month and a half, the doctors were saying they would have to take her whole right shoulder and leg and that was only a start, they figured either way she only had a month to live that's how aggressive this Cancer was...

    So we made the hard choice to put her to rest, it happened so fast that it feels like a blink of an eye and she's gone...

    I miss my little girl so much...

    That's a shame. At least the little one is feeling no more pain. Sorry, bud.

    Cool

    Thanks All, you all are so nice...

    We gave Gucci such a loving home, she was really starting to relax and knew that this was HOME...

    It just hit me hard yesterday, I read a post (on another forum) were they just lost one of their dogs to Cancer also...

    Once I read that I just started thinking about Gucci and that was it, the flood gates opened...

    We contacted the Breeder to let her know that Gucci passed and she started balling also, Gucci was one of her favorite dogs... Gucci was Forest's Sister... Forest is the Dog that Stared with Richard Gere in the Movie, Hachi...

    She felt so bad for us... She contacted us a few days later, she just had a litter from Gucci's Sister and was going to keep a few of the dogs as Show Dog's...

    She offered us one of those puppy's seeing that Gucci wasn't with us for long...

    Deb's real happy right now because this litter has some Brindle Colored Akita's and we are getting one of them

    This will help Force out so much also, he has been hit hard losing his Mom...

    I'll load up some photo's when we get back with her...

    Road Trip to Maryland coming up...

    .


    Check out the Trailer:

    I am very sorry for your loss, and feel your pain.

    My little buddy passed away two weeks ago. Picked her out of a litter just after birth, checked on her weekly until come home time new years of '02. Best dog a man could ever ask for, and by my side at all times. She started loosing use of her back legs. Over a span of a few months, she hit a day that she didn't get out of her bed, not even for a bacon snack, or then later that morning, to go the bathroom. I knew it was time. Hardest damn day of my life.
    If winning was easy, then the losers would be winners.
    I wish I was the man my dog thinks I am.
