If I find out they were poisoned...somebodies gonna die.

_____I've never been married or had kids, so I don't know anything about the kind of joy that can bring. Two things that brought joy to my life on a daily basis were my dogs; Sassy and Trouble. (Actually they really weren't my dogs, they were with me because they were too much for the my ex-fiance; Glenda, to handle.) /// Sassy started getting sick Monday the 14th. She wouldn't eat, was salivating a lot, and when she drank water, she ended up throwing up. I hoped she just had some kind of flu and would get over it. I had planned a trip to Kansas and was supposed to leave Tuesday. My ex-fiance; Glenda said she would watch the dogs. I waited till late Monday night to take them to her. Sassy seemed a little better. She even stood in my lap on the drive to Newton Falls. Sassy drank some water when she got there and up it came. I told Glenda that if she wanted me to, I'd take her with me and leave Trouble there. She said that was OK, I could leave them both. For the next eight hours behind the wheel, I was thinking about Sassy and praying for "God" to heal her. I called Glenda at eight and she told me that something had burst in Sassy and she bled out through her ass and died. That was the start of my trip. Once I was able to bury feeling like shit about Sassy; Wed. Thur. Fri. Sat. and Sunday was nice. Before I left to come back Monday, I got on the computer to check my Email at the local library. Glenda had sent me an Email saying Trouble got sick Wednesday and that if I didn't get back before Tuesday, he would probably be dead too. I called her. She said that he was really bad Saturday and Sunday, but a vet wouldn't call her back. She said that he laid in the bed that used to be mine and died sometime during the night. He bled out too. I'm hoping that he laid in that bed because it still had my sent and got some comfort from that. At least his mother "Baby" was with him when he died. Neither Sassy nor Trouble were vaccinated for anything other that rabies. Neither is Baby. If Baby gets sick, that will mean that Sassy and Trouble had a virus. I gave Glenda my debit card number so she can take her to the vet if she gets sick. If baby doesn't get sick, that will mean that Sassy and Trouble were poisoned. If that is the case, I have a hunch that it was the next door neighbors dick-head friend who did it. It wouldn't be the next door neighbor. He loved those dogs. /// I failed Sassy and Trouble. I failed them by not getting them vaccinated. I failed them by not taking them to the vet. I failed them by not at least being here to hold them as they died. I feel like shit. I think I should. ////////// Has anyone ever had a dog die like that? Any ideas what it might have been? I really don't want to think it was poison, because I'm going to want to drastically shorten a mans life and I probably won't because I don't want to go to prison. Then I'll feel like shit for not doing it.

I wish i had the words to comfort you...dogs are the closest to uncondional love we are ever going to find here on earth... I've never had a dog die like that.. but I've had dogs die... it is heartbreaking. My ex has my dog and treats her like crap but at this point I can't change that... I hope that 'baby' is doing okay... The best that I can do for you is to send you a hug...and my prayers...

_____I called the ex-fiance and paid to have Baby given a Parvo shot, along with four other things they put in it. If it was Parvo, once baby gets passed ten days, she'll be OK.

if they were poisoned generally not a great deal you can do,an autopsy would be handy in the case of your neighbors

I've had more poisoned dogs and cats die in my arms than a vet has and if its rat poison ,extremely painful but quickish,vomiting,diaria,swollen tum,making them vomit and getting a ,shit i cannot remember the name of the injection into there system quick,i have two in the house for such cases as its always late at night i find them,it sometimes works not always.
If seen too quickly high chance at survival.

Chopped up glass is the worse in hamburger as its slow and rips them to pieces ,nothing you can do as its too late by the time you realize.

My hubby's dog died last year at 15 years old,from cancer again we only knew from his but bleeding to take him too the vets by then it was too late.

last month i rescued a cat that looked as if it had been poisoned,near death,at one point i had to give her heart some work to keep her going till we got her to a vet,48 hours she was given severe pneumonia and bronchitis,her three kittens died of it but i kept her going now a healthy cats again.

Vets are expensive so i do search the net often and get advice from other owners.

get an autopsy if you can,try a university vet section they may do it for free,from that you will have proof before you do harm to the bastards who may have done this.

hugs and my sympathy to your lost friends

From past experiences I know that when a dog or cat bleeds out like that then poisoning is highly likely. I am sorry to say that......my heart goes out with you on this one...I can just imagine how you feel! Check out your house to see if there was anything they had or could have gotten into and then have an autopsy done on them. You will get your answers there definitely.....again I am sorry you had to go through this.....

Ive talked to the city animal warden. She seemed to think poison, or something called "Bloat", although Bloat seems unlikely to happen to both. So, the animal warden, and three vets suggest poisoning. Two vets are saying Parvo virus. The thing with an autopsy is...Sassy was buried Wednesday. Trouble was buried Monday. Neither one of them was refrigerated. I'm told that there would be too much tissue breakdown for the results to be conclusive. If the guy did poison them, he gets a "pass" this time. If I get another dog and it dies this way...he dies. No questions. No talking. Simple. Death comes to him. I'm not feeling like this again without vengeance. This is worse than when my parents died.

Thanks for the kind words and the welcome. I won't be blogging long. Nothing else was ever this important and once I can say "Sassy and Trouble are dead.", and stop thinking I hear them outside my door in the hallway...once I can stop looking at the hallway without their beds in it and thinking of how empty it looks; when I'm back to "normal" I will remove my blog. I really loved those dogs. I never knew how much.

You already know how I feel. I feel like crap cause it was me that took you away from your home. If it wasn't for me, you would have been there. And for that I am sorry!

skyking412004 replies on 8/30/2006 5:33 pm:
I made the decision, Sweets. As much as I care for you...if I would have known they were going to die, I would have stayed here and spent the money on a vet. I thought Sassy was getting better. I didn't know she was eight hours from death. TRouble didn't even show any symptoms for four days. If I would have known what was coming, I would have stayed in touch with the ex-fiance and encouraged her to get Trouble to the vet, or at least been checking up on him. I thought he was fine. I feel like I'm pleading with "God", but they're already dead. If I could go back in time, me coming to see you would be postponed. If I could go back in time (I think I "felt" when the guy poisoned them, I just didn't know that was what I was feeling.) I would have met the guy in the driveway next door and caved his skull in with my tie-down bar. If I would have known...

i spoke with hubby as he knows more than me,he suggests it may have been and sorry for the spelling gastroenteritis os some other similar thing and he didn't know the english word for it,and with the second one death is quick and nothing you can do and if it was any of those two watch the third dog very carefully as easy to catch

skyking412004 replies on 8/30/2006 5:41 pm:
Thanks Papyrina. The ex-fiance (Glenda) took Troubles mom; Baby to the vet and I paid for a multi-vaccine shot. The vet told her that if Baby shows ant symptoms to bring her in right away. This is going to sound really bad, but if Baby gets sick, that will mean that it was a virus. Then I can stop hating the next door neighbors friend and I won't have a reason to want him dead. Then the blame falls squarely back on me, because I never had Sassy or Trouble vaccinated. That would suck worse than them being poisoned. At least, if they were poisoned, I have someone else to blame.

So sorry to hear about this. I really like trouble & sassy. It doesn't matter that you never had kids, those dogs where your family. I knew you loved them, you took very good care of them. Sometimes things are just out of our control. I'm sorry about your loses.

skyking412004 replies on 8/30/2006 5:46 pm:
Sorry I haven't told you yet Lemondrop. It's been kind of hard to talk about it without crying, especially to people who knew Sassy and Trouble. Hell...it's been kind of hard breathing without crying. You have enough going on in your life without having my "shit" added to it. They were my family. It's awful empty and lonely without them here. Nothing can fix that, or replace them.

skyking412004 replies on 8/31/2006 11:11 am:
IF I would have KNOWN how sick Sassy was, or that Trouble was going to get sick and die the same way...I would have stayed here and taken them to the vet. /// It would probably be nice to have Rico here (He's a cute lovable little fur ball.), but WHAT IF he got poisoned too? I couldn't live with that, and you would hate me. I guess "God" intends for me to be alone for a little while now. I have no idea why. I never know "why".

Sorry for your loss, I know the feeling I have had several pets that I have become attatched to and have lost them however, not in that fashion.
Things to think about in the future. We live in a sick society. People will do things just for shits and giggles. In the future please consider a few things that might prevent this type of devistation. Keep the dogs in the house when you are not there. I know many don't like to cage animals but, it is their home or special place within the home. Keep all the vet vaccinations and stuff up to date. Yes, it is expensive but that is one of the prices yu have to pay other than the dog food & fle collars.
I also have a dog who is a great companion and I watch out for him as if I would a child. There is a lot of reponsibility in being a pet owner now a days. So use this terrible experience as a learning tool. Also this type of thing can happen no matter what type of area you live in. There is probably no real way to prove what or how did this, you can only guess. It does sound like it was done intentionaly and indications are that of a poisioning. One of the ways this can happen is by the consumption of radiator coolant by the animals. It is sweet to the smell & taste of the animal & is almost irresistable. Do you or did you have a leak in any of the cars/truck at this time? This could have been the cause and might save you a lot of grief & jail time if you just suspect.

skyking412004 replies on 8/31/2006 11:05 am:
One of the first things I did when I got home was to check the house, yard, and garage for something that Sassy and trouble might have gotten in to. I had let a friend of mine store his boat here over the winter, but he sold that two months ago. I checked under my van and didn't see any anti-freeze leaks. I think if there were any leaks, they would have gotten in to it long before now. /// Sassy and Trouble liked being outside. The main reason I left them outside when I wasn't here was because I figured if the house ever burned down, they wouldn't be trapped in it. /// I'm not going to do anything now, on a "hunch", but if it ever happens again, I'm not going to think twice. I won't do jail time. I'll probably do prison time, but that guy will never do this to anyone else, ever again. Could you imagine if he's done this to other people? I don't think the price would be too high.

i thinkk your dogs may have parvo. my pitbull was doing the same shit. took him to the vet the swabed his ass and it came back postive. it is a virus and they can spread it. usually the vets can get the dogs better but it is deadly if it goes untreated.


skyking412004 replies on 8/31/2006 7:01 pm:
_____I had a dog die from Parvo about fourteen years ago. Her name was goldie. She had the most beautiful blue eyes you've ever seen. Her eyes changed color from the massive amounts of drugs they fed her intravenously to "cure" her. It cost $300.00 dollars. Her eyes changed from blue to, one blue, one green. I didn't care. It was just nice to have her home from the vet thinking she was OK. She was dead two days later. /// Goldie's symptoms were somewhat like Sassy had, however, Goldie would not drink water and had constant bloody diarrhea. One of the things that relieved me with Sassy, was that she did drink water, even though it seemed to hurt her throat when she drank. Trouble and Sassy had been in a fight over some hamburger and I thought that maybe Trouble had gotten a hold of Sass y's thought and maybe made her stomach tender, and that it would just take time to heal. Sassy actually seemed to be doing better on the way out to the ex-fiance's when I dropped her off. Trouble had no symptoms at all. The "ex" (Glenda) said that when Trouble started getting sick; four days later, his symptoms were the same, but he also had bloody stools. Troubles mother; Baby was laying next to Trouble when he died Monday. Baby never had the Parvo vaccine. She got the vaccine Tuesday. If it was Parvo and it takes the same course with Baby that it did with Sassy and Trouble...Baby should be sick now. As of earlier today, Baby is OK. I asked Glenda to let me know if Baby gets sick. So far, she has been fine. Did your dog make it? Thanks sexymama.

im so sad to hear that your dog died. that sucks super bad.

yes my dog did make it, the only thing they did to him was put an IV into his leg to pump fluids he actually still has a white patch were the IV was. although he would drink water while he had parvo he would puke it up and never had bloody stools

i hope you find out whats going on with your dogs, something isnt right. anyone who would poison innocent dogs need to go to hell and burn for a lifetime. i am praying you find out soon,


skyking412004 replies on 9/1/2006 11:24 am:
I'm glad your dog survived. I'll probably never really know what killed them. If somebody wanted to be mean. They could say that me not taking them to the vet killed them. I couldn't argue with them. If there was more hope of an autopsy being conclusive, I could see spending the $250.00 to get it done. $250.00 dollars might have kept Sassy alive, and then the vet could have warned me that it might happen to Trouble too. I didn't do enough. That is the main reason this is so hard.

skyking412004 replies on 9/1/2006 11:31 am:
Glenda says that, so far Baby is OK. Glenda wrote that Baby keeps standing on the couch and looking at the ground where Sassy and Trouble are buried and Baby goes into the bedroom and rolls around on the bed in the spot that Trouble died in. Glenda's son Jesse is pissed off because out of the three dogs Baby is alive. Jesse liked Trouble the best. Jesse always called trouble "his" dog.

I can feel your pain. It's heart-rending when a pet dies. My golden retreiver was only 5 years when she died of cancer, it took me a long time to get over it.

skyking412004 replies on 9/3/2006 9:08 am:
_____When I was about twenty three and still living with my parents we had two dogs that had to be "put to sleep" because they had cancer. My dad took them to the vet and stayed with them when the vet gave them the shot. That must have been hard on him. He got another dog after my mom died. (Buster) Buster had all of his shots but he came down with something when on vacation; maybe a poisonous spider or snake bite. Even though da took him to the vet, he only lasted a week. It was sad to see him wither away. That was the last dog dad had. Dad died July of two thousand five. Too much death. Entirely too much death. What is the purpose of being?

Sorry about you're loss. It sounds like it was Parvo. 4 years ago someone shot my kitty with a pellet gun and he lived for a week after surgery to remove it but ultimately died from all the damage the pellet did. Never found the culprit and god help them if I ever do...
