Chelsea My baby girl
by Becky Roller
I got Chelsea from my son shortly before Christmas in 2006, following the death of one of my other dogs.
I at the time did not want Chelsea because of what had went wrong with my other dog, but I took Chelsea because I loved the way she looked at m., There was a connection between her and I.
I grew to love her so so much. She became my whole life, my happiness, my love for her was huge. When I was sad, she would know how to make me happy again. She was the light of my life.
One day I noticed that she was losing weight, her appetite and we would wake up to our bed soaked and our couches. She would not eat her regular dog food and was losing hair. I was so scared that something was seriously wrong with her. I took her to the vet had them do blood work to find out that she had chronic Renal failure. I was devastated by the news and wondering why this keeps happening to us.
I came home did every research about renal failure, did the renal diet the Sub Q injection hoping that we would win the battle. By some of the stuff that we were feeding her, she was starting to show improvement, getting her weight back, playing, going for walks until one night I boiled her some chicken breast and put some broth and rice with off of one of the ingredients I found for renal failure, She ate that like there was no end to it.
The next day we woke up to rooms and rooms full of vomit with blood, diarrhea and her weight just seemed to disappear in front of us. she could not stand without shaking, her whole body was chattering from trying to vomit. She had no more left in her. The vet later that day told me that chicken was the worst thing to feed her because her kidney could not fight the high protein that is in chicken. We had to put her to sleep June 18th 2013 I feel very responsible for her sickness and wish I could have found something to cure her.
There is a huge, huge void in my life with out her, I miss everything about her, her personality, her playfulness, some of the goofy things she would do, and just how beautiful she looked when she would run. I have no desire to even think about getting another dog, I have 2 other dogs that need my time and attention right now.
I wish I could bring my baby girl back. I hope she is in dog heaven now enjoying the dog life she should have had with us.
I love you and miss you dearly Chelsea and will see you again one day. Love you baby girl
Becky, I'm SO sorry for your loss. This is a heartbreaking story. You did everything you could for Chelsea and loved her unconditionally, I have absolutely no doubt that she knew that. Please don't blame yourself. Just try to remember the good times and know that she's waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge - happy and healthy again. God Bless you both ~ Sue
