:( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :(

Hi all... things at my house have been strange lately. I have sold all the fish and all my tanks. It is very quiet not hearing the rushing water of the sumps all the time. I miss looking at them and watching them grow but I know they are being taken well care of.

Now onto my sad news... I had to put Emma down on Monday, Jan 21st, 2013. :( :(

In the middle of the night after going to bed on Sunday, around 3:30 am, my little Emma rolled over towards Mike and everything in her body went stiff. I thought she was having a seizure or something. She pee'd, pooped & vomited all within like 10 minutes. She never cried out or whined, just wasn't herself. I took her to an emergency vets who said it was something in her cervical column. They gave her a shot of pain meds and some Prednisone. Then told me to be at my vets when they opened. My vets said that it wasn't a surgical option. The damage was bad, if they got her to the point where she could be home, she couldn't be around the other dogs, couldn't jump or go up stairs without being carried. Then, the worst part, at some point she could turn her head a certain way and the disc could herniate and paralyze her instantly causing her to suffocate because she wouldn't be able to breath. She is 13... I would have been keeping her alive for me only. So I had her put down. It has been very hard around here without her. I've had her since she was 3 months old. I miss her so much. Ziva and Shiloh aren't quite sure what is going on but we will all get use to it.

This is how I will remember my baby....

Thank you all for your love and support. I miss all of you and since you've been a part of my life for so many years, I had to share this loss with you.

I'll be around.... hope everyone is doing well.

Love
Brooksie

Oh Brooksie, I just knew what it was going to be when I read the thread title :(

I wish I could take some of your sadness but all I can do is tell you I'm thinking of you and I feel your pain.

Emma was one of the lucky ones she had a great family and long happy life.

RIP

Sorry to hear of your sad news.. We lost our bulldog last year, possibly the hardest 'loss' I've even experienced.

The pics show Emma had a great life with you, remember and cherish those moments.

Thoughts are with you and your family

Sorry, Brooks. Dachshunds are great 'lil dogs. She had a great life & a good long one. I had to put my dog Ginger down a few years ago. Beagle/Shep mix, @ 16. Cried like a baby for days. I feel your pain & you have my sincerest condolences. :(

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

Brooksie I am so sorry. That is really awful. I had a look at your photo bucket and wow! What a life she had... years and years of love and fun. You were lucky to have each other. Losing a pet sucks and there is nothing I can say to make you feel better although I wish I could.

xxxxxxxxxx

Shazzzzzzz
