norma Posted December 6, 2004 Report Share Posted December 6, 2004 [i am new here. My Bichon Frise past away the other day. He died at home as I rocked him til his last breath. He had congestive heart failure. My family was to put him down a month ago but with increased meds he got better and I soully did that for 33 more days. The nite that he was dying he looked different restless and having trouble breathing my hubby and i thought that he was only having a bad nite. But I knew it was time. I stayed up with him he did not sit or lye down all nite. I forced him to lye with me or only minutes at a time he found it to hard to breath. We were up all nite. At 530 am I was lying in bed and he ran to me he tried to climb up on the bed and didn't make it. He tried again and collapsed and let out this awful yelp. I picked him up and his breathing wasn't so labored as the whole nite I wrapped him up in his favorite blanket and called my husband and told him he was slipping away. He woke my daughter she is 8 and we all sat on the bed kissing hugging talking and crying rocking him til he was no more. I am so torn up inside I try to hide my pain from my daughter as she is cheering me up. My hubby is a mess and we did not think that we would be like this. We always thought he would be with us. I miss him so.. Any help or support would be appreciated. norma Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
