Bad Day

Well crying for hours hasn't seemed to help. Maybe writing down my feelings might. I just lost Chase my sable male collie a couple a months ago to bloat very devastating I honestly have not lost a collie to bloat before. I know its is one of our breeds health issues, but I do everything the books say to prevent it feeding twice daily making sure they are resting after they eat. Ect...

But to lose a dog so suddenly and so young is crazy. I miss him like crazy.

So I feed the dogs early this morning wait 1hour before I let the out. I let them out to go potty and have their daily exercises. I went a did some err ans I work half days on Tuesday so It gives me chance to get things done. Came home went to bring them in and found Maui had bloated she was only 5 years old. She was fine this morning. So I have just lost two dog in a matter of months to bloat. I haven't change anything Ive done in the past same food same routine. I feel so empty and heartbroken right now. I dont know how to really pick myself up after this. Ive been on the Internet looking for some answers they all say the same thing. There just basically nothing you can do. I love my dogs and I am sick over it. I feel like screaming. I just feel like I miss some sign this morning I dont know. Thank heaven for Dancer she knows IM upset and is full of kisses.

Oh my gosh. I'm heart broken for you. I know the pain of losing a dog, and can't imagine how hard it has been for you to lose two. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. I hope knowing there are people out here who care will help you feel just a tiny bit better!!!

My goodness...I am sorry to hear of your losing two to bloat. How tragic. I have just added a Standard Poodle to our bunch and they are known to bloat as well. The poodle people have a health registry and any dog that boats is registered, so that the sire and dam are now known as producing it. They feel there is a familial link...??? Anyway you look at it, it is devestating. So sorry.
Hugs from Canada. Kim and Pete

Thank You Pete and Kim

Your toughts are so very sweet. I did go to the Collie Health Fondation and registered my guys. I hope no one else had to go through this and someday we find a cure.
