    My name is Krishi. I had a pug who passed away 2 days back. She was only 6 years old. She was a really loving, friendly and healthy dog. She didn’t had any problems. Used to go for regular check ups and everything was going good until Friday late evening. She had dinner and after some time she started crying. I knew she was in pain but didn’t  understand what was going on with her. I called my vet at night but he didn’t took my call. I tried to call so many clinics but had to wait till mornin g 9:30 as everything was closed. I was caressing my dog whole night. My family was around me with the dog. We all were feeling so helpless. Specially my mom and dad. They used to love her. We didn’t get chance to wait till morning. She left us before that. It was so devastating.

    I can’t stop thinking about it now. I am pregnant and I don’t feel like eating or doing anything. I am crying whole day and can’t sleep at night. My friends think it was only a dog, I am behaving crazy. But she was like my baby. She was 1 month old when I adopted her. And there is not even a day in last 6 years when I have lived without her.

    I don’t know how to cope up with this pain. I feel I didn’t do enough to save her. And my parents were so much attached to her. My mom is crying whole day. And it just breaks my heart when I think about my parents and about my pug. Can someone help how to cope up with this situation?



    Dear  Krishi:

    I am sorry for  your pug dying in pain and prematurely, and for you and your parents suffering as a result. Dog owners all over the world suffer a great deal when their dogs die- prematurely or from old, old age. It is a deep and prolonged heartache for so many.

    A common theme with people losing their pets (and it has been expressed in these Forums repeatedly by members) is guilt over the death of pets. It is because they are dependent on us, their owners, and dogs more than any pet, look up at us as their protectors and care-takers. When they die, we feel that we failed them, that we betrayed their trust in us to care for them well.

    Unfortunately there was no vet clinic open and available to see your pug in late evening and throughout the night. Dogs, like people, usually don’t die so quickly, but linger on and it is therefore possible to get later help that will save lives. But your pug died quickly.

    I am sorry for you pain. Feel free to post here anytime, if it helps only a bit, and I will read from you and reply back.
