My Heart is Heavy

Most of our customers have met our shoppe dog, Zeek, at one time or another.  He's our 11 year old Golden that takes almost every step I take.....everything about him is beautiful, he's one of the biggest joys of my life. 

Our sweet boy is sick.  The vet has kept him for tests and to get some IV fluids in him.   My heart just aches....I can think of little else.

 
There is a big hole in our home without him here.  I miss him terribly and wish I could be with him right now.
Please say a puppy prayer for our baby, Zeek.

Having an 11 yo doggie myself..(sooty ..toy poodle)..i totally totally empathise & feel for you..

Until I had this little treasure in my life I was never a "doggie" person...
But with both my boys independent young men...hubby away most of the time with work..
MR sootman (as i call him)..IS MY BABY...
I love him & miss him when he just goes to get a "clip" at our local vets..

I am sure Zeek will be fine...vets are fabulous..
as ARE dogs with their determination..

take care & love from OZ (australia!)

LaurieAnna I am so so sorry. I am praying for Zeke, I hope this is just a little hiccup and he will be back walking behind you in no time.

Nita {ModVintageLife} said...

oh...my I can't stand to hear about a sick dog. I certainly will have him in my thoughts. Dogs having an amazing ability to pull through some real adversity. My Mom's little Daisy was minutes from death two years ago and today she is as happy and healthy as can be. So don't give up hope. I didn't think Daisy was going to make it and she did.

I'll be watching for your post with an update. It's crazy how I've come to love every dog I read about on these blogs.

Julie said...

Oh yes...definitely praying now and will as I think of you and Zeek throughout the day. I know the heavy heavy painful feelings that go on in our hearts when our furry friends are suffering. They depend on us. They look to us.
This family loves our fluffy members. So saying little prayers to God to make Zeek rebound and to let you enjoy him many many more days ahead. Know what you are experiencing... Hugs and prayers.

Dee@FrenchBleuVintage said...

I will say a hundred prayers. He will be home with you soon I am sure. Please post when he is back on his paws again. Nothing is scarier for a pet owner. I don't like even putting my shepherd in the kennel when we go away. Sending you and Zeke big hugs ~

Faded Charm said...

My heart goes out to you and I can relate. We lost our 14 year old lab at the end of last summer and I still miss him terribly. He was a big part of our family.

You are in my thoughts.

Take care,

Kathleen

Laurianna,
I hope he's going to be okay. They truly are a part of us, aren't they. My dogs are like children to me and bring me such joy. We are faced right now with the decision to put our 17 year old Shih Tsu down, as she is having health issues. I can't do it.
Anyway, I'm praying for you and your baby.
Mary

Virginia said...

I am praying for your boy too. I too have a boy I LOVE with all my heart. He is getting older and I cannot even think about something happening to him. They are such comfort for us. Stanna

Oh, what a sweet face!
Having five "kids" of our
own, I know what you are
feeling Laurie Anna. I
hope your sweet boy will
get to come home soon.

Hugs to you and your sweet
Zeek!

Shelley KRUPA said...

I feel your pain, Laurie Anna. We have a 10-year old beauty named Chloe and I see in her sweet face, also, that she is getting older and a bit slower.

There is no sweeter dog than a Golden. I will say a prayer for Zeek...and for you and your family.
