Our beloved Shih-Tzu/Mini Schnauzer mix, Lucy, died yesterday from advanced kidney failure. She was 2 1/2 years old 🙁 Above is the last time she played at the park, her favorite spot.
Lucy had been sick from birth with an autoimmune disease that didn’t let her clot blood naturally and since she was 6 months old, she had been taking two types of medication. The vets believe that one of those medications may of been the reason behind her kidney failure. It’s was just all too soon! She starting experiencing problems just 5 days ago when she started to not eat or drink and shake uncontrollably. Even after putting her on more medicines, she still wasn’t getting better so on Tuesday, I took her back to the vet and demanded an ultrasound be done. At 5pm on Tuesday, I was told the news. Drove back home balling (with Lucy) to tell my Fiance. And by 6am on Wednesday morning, she passed.
This has been extremely hard for both me and my Fiance. He is having a hard time talking about it and I needed some place to express myself. I hope you guys are okay with this.
I miss my princess so much. I slept with her favorite toy last night. I know it’s not healthy and I tried not too, but I just couldn’t.

Awww honey. I’m so sorry. (((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))))))) I know exactly what you’re going through. When my little Smee passed it was just all too soon. I don’t think you can ever be ready to lose your little ones. The next few days are going to be tough, but you’ll get through it. You’ll start to feel better in a few days, but you’ll always miss her. It’s a tough time, I know. Sending lots of love your way. xoxo

I’m so sorry for your loss. I totally understand how you’re feeling and I think it’ll help a lot to express your feelings on here. I also don’t think it’s unhealthy that you slept with her toy, she just passed away yesterday. Give it some time and remember that she’s not hurting anymore (I know that’s not super helpful right now since every time I heard that all I thought was “But I want them here right now, I don’t want them gone” but eventually it’ll help). Every time I’ve gone through this, my husband will let me not talk about it for a few days but then share memories when I’m ready. Again, I’m so so so so sorry and remember you have support here and with your Fiance even if he doesn’t want to talk right now.

I can definitely sympathize with your loss, having lost several beloved animals myself over the years. I’m sorry you’re going through this right now. Know that your dog is happy and healthy and waiting patiently for you at the Rainbow Bridge! *hugs*

I am so so sorry. Losing a friend and family member is heartbreaking. She looks so content and happy in that photo. I’m sure she came into your life for a reason and that she was given the best possible life with your family.
My border collie just passed away from kidney failure. She was a bit older than your Lucy but it was still devastating. She grew up with our other dog Cody, and when Cody died I felt like she never stopped looking for her. I believe she’s out there somewhere, reunited with the friend she lost long ago.
