    My mom and Dad called me today to tell me that my little buddy Juan Carlos Passed away today...
    He had pacreatitis... they don't know what caused it, but they had to put him in surgey, he was doing fine this morning, and 30 mins later by 830 he had passed away...
    I feel bad for my parents I was the one who told them mom shouldn't be home alone, and now she is heart broken that he is gone...
    Even my dad who is not one to get emotional I have only see him cry 4 times in his life, who is normally completely Stoic had a creaky voice as he told me our buddy had passed on...
    Juan Carlos...
    I loved you...
    You will be missed...

    Not old enough only 6 if memory serves correctly... their other dog is having alot of seizures and they think it is because of added stress of Juan Carlos not being around...

    Poor thing she runs around back and forth to all the doors whining, and then runs outside and barks out the fence as if she's hoping he just got out and hasn't come back yet...

    She is heart broken too, I hope it doesn't kill her too...

    :cry:

    I'm really sorry to hear what happened Mike. I had a big scare 3 weeks ago with my Tabby (Cat). He got all bloated and was basically not moving much. Took him to the Pet Hospital and they found that he had a clogged urethra due to bladder crystals. He was border line as to outcome as they told me that blockage of urine flow is considered a medical emergency and depending as to how long he had been clogged he could die. It really scares the crap out of you when it's your pet that has been with you many years. Fortunately they were able to unplug him using a catheter and flushed out everything, but since he had an infection from the old urine in his bladder they had to put him on antibiotics and now he basically has to eat only wet (canned) food for the rest of his life, no more dry food. He's all happy and the normal pain in the ass that he was before. O.K. I'm babbling on now :nervous: It really screws with your head. What really sucked for you is that Juan Carlos was, or seemed to be doing well and then poof. :( Any time a human or an animal needs surgery it's a damn crap shoot. It can be routine surgery, but why do they call it routine? Any time they have to cut any one or animal/pet open it's far from routine. You can have a bad reaction to anesthesia or the body can go into shock during or after surgery, secondary infections... It sucks. I really feel for you. Sorry. :(

    least now he has all the balls he can chase and chew on, all the green fields to run in, all the trees and fire hydrants to pee on, and all the bitches he can bang :rambo:

    Sorry for your loss. I lost both my boys last year to kidney failure, they were only 10.

    RIP Juan Carlos

    I was never brought up with a little buddy even though sometimes I wish I did but I can imagine how devastating this is mlakrid. I have seen my other friends go through the same and as I have said to them I shall say to you....he is in a better place now.

    RIP little buddy

    Sorry to here that my friend, I lost a little guy name porky he was a pekingese, and now I'm dealing with a boxer with seizes which they don't know why, he on meds now and has been doing pretty good. God bless us with them for a very short time and all we can do is enjoy as much as we can. Give your Mom and Dad some time and see if another dog maybe in there future, again sorry to hear, and keep your chin up.

    we had someone at work whose bunny died and he went a little crazy for a while, seriously, i think he thought someone murdered it.

    i remember losing pets and it can be hurtful.

    Thanks Lancer...

    Hes in a better place, the day I found out, I wanted to go home, but knew it wouldn't help how I was feeling...

    It is truely amazing how each pet has their own personality, almost like a child really... they test their boundaries... and he was no exception...

    I will miss my little "football" buddy

    Thanks for all the support guys...

    It is getting better day by day, and I am hoping that my parents will go get her a new puppy soon...

    She has been severely depressed...

    Im ok now, just pray for my mom...

    Thanks!

    Mike A!
