Molly 2010-2019

Recommended Posts

Lost my best mate New Year's Day so it's with a sad heart that I am writing this just to warn anyone on here who's dog falls ill. From what I have learned since it appears to be some kind of pesticide/ insecticide that did the deed that she has either licked off herself or digested she may have even drank from a puddle I don't know how it's go into her. It started with diarrhoea and sickness her poo been ( orange) the vet diagnosed gastroenteritis and treated her for this.A few hours later she passed away I still feel that I let her down when she needed me but hope that fades with time but I will cherish the time I had with her RIP Molly.

anyway enjoy what's left of the season and happy new year to all

That is not good news. I am sorry.

I cannot imagine anyone using pesticides at this time of year so the cause is a mystery to me.

You may be right J dog I may be way off you can google too much I suppose, but it was the orange poo that seemed to fit she's gone had I known the ending that was coming which was not very nice I would have put her to sleep that morning.

I really do feel for you. I lost my 9yr old collie early December to kidney failure which was totally unexpected. I didn’t realise it would have affected me quite as much as it did. Chin up fella

I lost my best mate of 10years, 6 weeks ago. He had kidney failure. It was so unexpected. I've never been so upset. you, like I, looked for things to blame but it fruitless. 

Remember all the good times. You have them forever.

All the best.

It never ever gets any easier but when in a relatively young dog and so sudden( I have lost two dropped dead in seconds) then I know it is worse still and I feel for you.

Sorry to hear of your loss

Would go with JDog cannot think of anything farm wise requiring any amount of chemical use.

Reading your post whilst looking over at my 2 Springers laid, upside down, on the sofa is about as upsetting as it gets, what a kick in the balls you have had to start the new year. Find another as it's the best way forward.

I feel for your loss, never goes it just gets a bit easier., I still miss my cocker from 5 years sgo, & I have another ,arguably " better" but not the character he was.

Thanks for all your kind words. The thing that bugs me the most is not knowing what it was she had really only Been in three places beating rest of her exercise had been in the village on the lead. so my main concern was friends dogs if it is something in any of those areas then there dogs are at risk . I know they had sprayed the rape recently but for what I don't know  it may. Something Be harmless.

thanks guzzicat i think that's what I miss most at the moment is she was such character . I'm not new to this I know how it works I had three dogs but have lost the two older ones over the last couple of years I was not expecting  Molly to go, I may leave it a while but I am sure there will be another cocker along.

I go along with all the above replies , terrible start to the new year and with only a few weeks of the season left you must be how I would feel , gutted.

Good luck in finding a replacement when the time is right .

It just shows how much you loved your dog.

My advice is to get onto the internet and find a pup as soon as you can. I found my two Sprockers on ‘Preloved’. Not that either of them were second hand.

As I have said many times before - Every dog breaks your heart eventually.

Sad times my friend but beautiful memories that nobody can take from you.

Tomorrow's going to be tough mate, good luck 😞 

Give it a few months and get a new dog in, trust me I had to do it recently. 

 

Get some nice pics made up of the old girl :)
