saddest week ever at work.

so i always complain about work right, the long walks witht he dogs, the biatch at work and all...

but this week may be the chart topper.
i had one corgi die on me --- liver failure he came to us about to die.. i mean .. poor guy!

we were operating on a cat (stray) he died cause he had way too much fluid in his lungs -- aka drowned in his fluid/puss.

one of the kittens died he was 4 weeks old, we did everything to revive him, milk, a/d can, heater, drips and everything didnt save him. his cold body was found the next day by me. it was sad so i patted it, washed him and closed his eyes so atleast he doesnt look as hes in too much pain. i had tears in my eyes then.
my vets dog died. she was 3 years old and my vet said that she would take care of her cause she couldnt be sold cause she would of died in about 2 months or so (she was from a pet shop). 3 years down the track - she was fine til about 1 week ago when it started to get hot and humid, she was coughing a lot so we put her in a oxygen incubator, brought up the oxygen level wayy up to the highest - and the heat down so there wasnt any - or hardly any stress on her heart. I walked in to work today to find the incubator empty and i felt this wave of.. i dont know, come over me and my vets wife was blow drying her lifeless body.

today i just decided that i am way to emotional for this job cause i was just in awe at how things die so easily and so quickly. all the other girls were okay and it wasnt really anything to them i guess taht they may be used to it as its part of life? but im human and i just got so.. emotional... i hate this job at times. been sighing all day and patting dead things and cuddling them, people would think im weird if they saw me.
my vets son is six years old .. he has no idea whats going on. I was like "Did she pass away this morning??" and he said : "Yup!!! check out my new beetle i found on the veranda today!!"..
dude.. i hate beetles get away from me before i slap you.

my animals are good, i would not know what to do if they died. they mean so much though they hate me a lot.

Oh wow! I don't think I would be any good at that job. I'm way too emotional when it comes to animals. I know that this sounds aweful... but sometimes I have more empathy and sympathy for animals than I do for humans. Strange? yes, I know. My sweet Tosha(German Sheperd/Rotti mix is almost 15 years old. She' getting soooo old. Right before my very eyes. She's loosing her hearing, her sight, she has arthritis in her back hips and legs. She's my sweetie. My first baby! She and I have been through hell and back... together. Always together. I can't remember a time when she wasn't there for me. She has been with me longer than any of my three kiddos, longer than my husband. Heck, I had her before I even met my EX husband. I don't know how much time I have left with her. I'll be a basket case when I loose her. So I can relate to how you're feeling!

I live on a farm..we have lots of Cashmere goats...many of them pets...Every year we lose some to sickness old age...even getting hit by lightning...At first it made me sad but then I realized it is the quality of life that is important...not the not being alive bit...We will all "pass on" one day...So I realised that one must live life to the fullest and try not to "waste" the wonderful experience of being alive.Live your life with passion sweety...It is an adventure...not a job....!!! Have "fun" and be yourself,not what other people want you to be....Cheers Geoff

Hi,I understand your sadness,but you have to understand that all living thing will die..You me,everything that lives...I have a farm..there are lots of goats.I don't know if you are familiar with goats but they are like dogs and when they are domesticated,maybe even more so domesticated than a dog...But they live maybe 12,15 years at the max so many friends have gone...I saved some of these goats when they were just hours old so it is sad when they go..I had a blind goat that I found covered in shit just hours old and nearly comatose,but I saved it.. She died a few years ago,but she lives on through her babies so I feel proud to know that the strong healthy goat that I am seeing now would not exist is if I had not made the effort to save his mum.Celebrate life while it exists,not when it is gone and apply this principle to your own life because it's the only thing that matters..Cheers Geoff Ps I have such a fond memory of this blind goat,but also it's a little bit cruel.She knew where the water was,but one day the pipe burst so i dug it up and put the post that the tap was connected to in the hole.She wander along and found the post but then when she whet to drink she fell in the hole,It was about 2 feet deep and four legs and a puzzled face immediately appeared above the hole..Her name was Fifi..She used to butt all m y gf's even though she was not supposed to be able to see them..Cheers Geoff
